POMEROY — The Meigs Local Board of Education recently approved membership into the Ohio School Boards Association Legal Assistance Fund. This will be for 2016 and the cost is $260.

A student involved with SkillsUSA will make a trip to Washington, D.C., in January after the board approved an overnight field trip for teacher Tom Cremeans, and one SkillsUSA student to attend the SkillsUSA Ohio Regional Officers Leadership Training Institute. The trip will be Jan. 17-22. Airfare was also approved for Tammy Chapman to attend Success For All (SFA) training in California. The training will take place Jan. 25-28.

Retroactive to Dec. 7, Bruce Martin was hired as a tutor for a student. The recommendation of Martin was made by special education coordinator Karla Brown. The board approved the hires of Thomas Freeman, Jeremy Northup and John Sipple as substitute teachers for the rest of the school year. The recommendation was made by the Athens Meigs Educational Service Center. Joyce Hill was also approved as a mentor for Nathan Jeffers at Meigs Intermediate School. The approval is retroactive to Sept. 2 of this year.

Also listed on the agenda to speak were Kim Wolfe, the after-school coordinator and two after-school students.

All board members except for Ryan Mahr were present for the meeting.

The next regular Board of Education meeting is set for Tuesday, Dec. 22 at 7 p.m. at the Board of Education Office.
