Centre board of education decided at its Monday meeting to maintain the district’s grandfathered Blue Cross Blue Shield health insurance policy. The premium of approximately $190,000 is a 12 percent increase from the previous year.
The board accepted a donation of $400 from Holy Family Parish to assist in providing basic essentials for students.
In executive sessions, the board discussed a resignation, staff contract-teacher interviews, a supplemental contract, and certificated staff negotiations.
In open session, they accepted the resignations of Kirsten Phillips and Alex Cain and hired Jessica Bates as a substitute bus driver, Susan Saunders as high school science teacher and volleyball coach, Bethany Carlson as preschool teacher, and Hillary Barlow as counselor.
