Board To Hear Presentations, Consider Other Business

20 Jun , 2017  

The Mansfield City Schools Board of Education will hear two presentations when it meets in regular monthly session at 5:30 PM this evening, June 20. The session will be held at the Raemelton Administration Building, 856 West Cook Road.

In the first presentation, Technology Director Fayette Adams will outline the technology budget for the coming school year.

In the second, Joe Shimek will discuss the Why Try program at Mansfield Middle School which focuses on preventing bullying and dropouts, improving academics and reducing truancy. The program is supported by a grant from the Richland County Foundation.

Other business includes acceptance of the following gifts, as well as a small increase in the cost of PreK to 3rd grade lunch. The proposal would take it to $2.75, a 25 cent increase, which would represent the first change since 2014.
