Before any business items were discussed at last night’s regular meeting of the Southeast Dubois School Board, board members and the public listened to Forest Park student Brandon Olinger who recited poetry after he was given a Recognition of Student Achievement for winning the Poetry Out Loud event at Forest Park Jr/Sr High.
Next in the meeting, Larry Kleeman introduced himself to the board as a candidate for the district 74 seat of the Indiana House of Representatives. He told the board of his interest in the creativity of teaching in the education sector instead of only standardized testing.

Later a presentation from Multi-Resource Management Inc. was given by Doug Brown who addressed the board about forest maintenence issues in the district. Brown described the need to move forward with cutting down some trees as some parts of the woods are at a precarious state because of age.
Superintendent, Rick Allen, talks about the purpose and importance of Brown & Thom Kinney’s involvement with the forest issue.

Superintendent Allen says the issue at hand is to avoid long term hazardous situations and that they want the public to still have access to these woods so having a report on how to manage the issue is crucial.

After reviewing the report Superintendent Allen says the board has to decide on the next steps and if the board approves the report findings next month they will make a contract with Multi-Resource Management in order to run a small harvest of the woods  to keep it viable and accessible.
