The board gave approval to send only one board member to parent meetings scheduled over the next 10 days. The board had been sending two. The vote was 6-0-1 with Mildred Douglas abstaining.

The board room was packed as the district recognized all students who made perfect scores on any section of last years PASS test. Additional recognition was given to; the distinguished teachers for the month; Wally Blankenship for an environmental award and; Amy Jones who is the Upper-State School Resource Officer of the Year.

The board heard reports on; the 15-day enrollment; AP, IB, and SAT participation and performance; the new energy management system and; two students from ATC showcased some of their graphic art work.

Bus drivers James Mann and Carolyn Ann Burris addressed the board about the hardships they are having with a 15% cut in salary as working "retired" bus drivers.
