Unit 1 budget in good shape; HHS, PHS principals discuss sharing courses

Daily News

The Hutsonville Unit 1 school district is starting off the new year in good financial shape.

Superintendent Roger Eddy reported that the district is on budget for the year and barring unforeseen events, and full and timely payments by the state, the district should end the year in the black.

Eddy also reported that meetings with other superintendents suggest that this year's calendar is working well and they will be looking at the same for next year. Eddy said the teacher institute day after Christmas break was well received by teachers.

Eddy reminded board members that the first day to file petitions for school board seats is Jan. 29 and the last day is Feb. 5.

High-school Principal Monte Newlin reported that HHS students have again been selected to present at the TECH 2007 event at the State Capital May 8. He also reported that he had been meeting with Palestine High School Principal Arlene Lindsay to discuss possible courses that could be shared that could enhance educational opportunities for students in both schools.

Grade School Principal Guy Rumler said the seventh-grade boys basketball tournament the school hosted was very successful. Hutsonville's team finished third in the tournament.

Rumler also reported that changes in the format used in the Iowa testing program may necessitate changes in Hutsonville's testing.

Preceding the meeting the board recognized several high-school students with Terrific Tiger Awards. Denise Drebes, Gabriel Griffith, Ashley Harvey, Jessica Heleine, Shelley Keller, Rick Mendenhall, David Milam, Jacob Milam and Stormy Napier received the awards for art projects selected to be put on display at the local McDonald's restaurant in Robinson.

The board went into a brief executive session to discuss personnel but no action was taken.
