Schools settling into routines, atmosphere good, Brister says

Because of Labor Day, the Lincoln County School District Board of Trustees met Tuesday instead of their normal Monday meeting.

The board approved their consent agent and a request to apply for Positive Behavior Specialist Funds from the Mississippi Department of Education, office of special education. The funds would provide $6,979.59.

LCSD Superintendent Terry Brister said the schools were settling into their routines.

“The atmospheres are good at the schools from the teachers as a whole,” he said.

The consent agenda included:

• A lease contract with Paul Barnett Nissan for driver’s education cars for the 2014-2015 school year.

• Request to have an emergency school bus.

• List of private contracts for parents/guardians to reimbursed for travel for the 2014-2015 school year.

• Request to accept Loyd Star Activity Funds to purchase or rent items associated with student functions/activities and to contract with Johnny Smith Photography.

• Advertise to accept bids for Chrome Notebooks.

• Request to take up money from the basketball girls at Bogue Chitto for shoes, wind suits and equipment bags.

• Permission to collect money from students at West Lincoln for ACT Prep Class.

• Accept donation of used chemistry cabinets from Copiah-Lincoln Community College at Loyd Star.

• Accept donation from Mathis Construction for West Lincoln’s Cross Country program.

The board also went into executive session to discuss a personnel matter but took no action regarding it during the regular meeting.
