Wednesday afternoon the Southeast Dubois County School Board evaluated summer tasks underway, some that are ready to be completed in preparation for the fall semester which is right around the corner.
Superintendent Rick Allen, elaborates on the types of projects that are currently taking place.
Superintendent Allen also highlighted the approval from the board about the Educational Service Centers Risk Funding Trust (ESCRFT) which is an education trust to handling property casualty insurance that will have considerable savings since last year the amount was over $137,000 and this year the premium will be about $113,000. Allen talks about what that means for a small rural district such as Southeast Dubois.
The board was pleased to hear the efforts of funds being saved for the district in this capacity.
As Superintendent Allen and the the board continued their discussion in preparation for the following school year they expressed their gratitude towards the generosity of supporting contributors. The board approved the donations and were impressed by them given the summer months, yet there were donations given to district programs.
Allen noted that there are several activities students have participated in this summer such as the We Are Fit program which has been going on since 2006. He also stated that the reception from students and parents has been positive.
