Heading the agenda is a resolution to begin the process for the sale of the final $10 million in bonds that are part of a $30 million program approved by parish voters in April 2009. Proceeds from the bonds are being used for a wide variety of school facility improvements.
The meeting will also be the last for outgoing board members Rodney Ledoux of District 6 and Barbara “T-Bob” Latiolais of District 5, both of whom did not seek re-election earlier this year. Ledoux, the dean of the board, is not expected to attend as he is recovering from back surgery.
In addition to a number of routine matters, today’s agenda also includes:
•Discuss trips made by board members to conferences and meetings (at the request of board president Aaron Flegeance).
•Consider resolution for all school systems, public and non-public, to accept disciplinary actions of school boards (at the request of District 10 10 representative Mark Hebert).
•Consider approval of a $20,000 loan to St. Martinville Sr. High School for softball facility improvements and an increase from $1 to $2 per mile for field trip use of school buses, as recommended by the finance committee.
•Under personnel matters, authorize the advertisement for a head football coach at St. Martinville Sr. High and a bus shop foreman.
•Approve driver’s education program for 2010-11.
•Consider approval of a request from Nature’s Sunshine Products for waiver of sales tax penalty, and denial of request from Dell Marketing LP for waiver of sales tax penalty.
