Centre board chooses Basore

Staff writer

Centre board of education voted Tuesday to have Rick Basore serve as its president for 2015-2016.

Clay Simons will be vice president.

Superintendent Susan Beeson asked the board to reconsider enrollment incentives for adult online learners approved at the June board meeting.

She said Kansas Department of Education officials informed her the incentive program did not comply with rules for operation of online progrms.

The board voted 4-1 to rescind the incentives, with Jesse Brunner voting to keep them.

TEEN representative Jeff Bina expressed concern that Centre wasn’t getting equitable attention from the technology collaborative. He said TEEN director Lena Kleiner had been working on the TEEN Virtual Academy, which will compete with Centre’s Kansas Online Learning Program for students.

A special budget meeting was scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Aug. 4.
