Beginning next month, the Laurel County Board of Education will be holding “working sessions,” which they say will enable them to better prepare for their regular sessions each month.
That action was taken Monday morning during a special meeting of the board in London.
It involves a second monthly meeting of the board, which will start on Oct. 22.
“In a district this size, we feel it’s important to be prepared for our regular meetings. No actions will be taken at those meetings. We’ll talk and discuss about what action can be taken when we have our usual regular meeting,” said Superintendent Doug Bennett.
He added the working sessions would be like their regular sessions, and there would be an agenda.
The board also recommended approval of documents pertaining to the North Laurel Middle School Addition and Renovation. That includes a revised architect contract, revised construction documents, a revised BG-3 and revised BG-1 financial page (Buildings and Grounds documents), authorization of appropriate signatures and advertisement for bids.
“These are revisions to change from general manager to construction manager,” Bennettt pointed out.
The action on the documents is pending approval of the Kentucky Department of Education.
Later, board members went into executive session, to discuss litigation. No formal action was taken.
Approval for sessions given, would help them prepare for regular meetings
