The River City Classics scholarships were received by Michael Luers, Jac-Cen-Del High School, and Cody Rothbauer, Milan High School.

Due to the lack of funding for the GED program, the recommendation for the non-renewal of the administrative contract for Tricia Johnson and the non-renewal contract of Jenny Morath was unanimously approved. Street noted that no hearing was requested for both non-renewals.

The recommendation for non-renewal of teaching contracts was approved with Steve Patz abstaining. The motion to allow Street to fill the positions if funding is approved, both teaching and administrative was approved with Patz abstaining.

Street noted that the school is continuing to look for a buyer for the Building Trades project house in the Harvest Ridge Subdivision in Versailles. He noted that future projects could include the construction of a pole barn or the construction of a home through Habitat for Humanity.

In other business:

• The cancellation of teaching contract for Miles Henninger effective the end of the school year was approved.
