MAMMOTH SPRING -- Mammoth Spring Superintendent of School Ron Taylor gave the Mammoth Spring School Board an update on the last donation toward the sign project at the February school board meeting. He said Austin Smith from Smith Logging donated $2,500 to the sign project.
Taylor told the board the school had received a grant for $33,540 for the medical professionals program at the school. He said the grant was from the state Workforce Development program. He said Linda Greene will be the instructor for the course. Taylor said Greene and high school principal Brian Davis were instrumental in getting the grant.
The school board approved applying for an Indian Education Act Fund grant. Taylor said if the school should be approved it would receive $22,580 for the next two years. He said one of the criteria for receiving the grant is how many students in a school district have Native American heritage. Anita Humphrey will be the instructor for the course if the application is approved. He said the grant was applied for in mid February and the school should hear from the grant program in 120 days.
QZAB Bonds were discussed by the superintendent and the school board. Taylor said the bond issue is just in its planning stage at the present.
Elementary principal Ruth Stevens' and high school principal Brian Davis's contract were both renewed. At present both contracts will remain the same, with the school board reserving the right to change the contract if needed by July 1.
