MAMMOTH SPRING -- The Mammoth Spring School Board met in regular session Dec. 17 with all board members present.
Superintendent Ron Taylor informed board members that the two FEMA trailers recently purchased by the school have been delivered. They are currently being used for storage.
The board passed a resolution in support of the superintendent's 10-Year Facility Master Plan for the school district.
Taylor told the board the plan has to be filed with the state by Feb. 1 and that a public meeting will be held in January to get input from the community on the plan.
School board members reviewed the audit report for the 2005-2006 school year. Taylor said the audit was filed with the Joint Legislative Commission Dec. 14. All board members expressed their gratitude to Wilma Rogers and Janet Young for the good job they do keeping the financial records at the school and helping get a good audit report.
Board members reviewed their school board training hours and it was determined that all old members had their six hours of training as required by the state and that the new board members had their required nine hours of training. School board member Ramona Combs was recognized by the Arkansas School Board Association for having 27-1/2 hours of school board training in the last two years.
Taylor informed the board members that Mammoth Spring High School had been listed in the U.S. News and World Report magazine as being one of the best schools in the country.
He also told the board the school had received vouchers from the Microsoft Company in the amount of $38,000 to purchase hardware and software for computers.
