Laurel BOE accepts bids; updates policies

CORBIN —

By Charlotte Underwood / Staff Writer

Annual updates and the acceptance of bids on school supplies and services topped the agenda at Monday night’s Laurel County Board of Education meeting.

During the action items portion of the meeting, the board approved the superintendent’s recommendation that low bids be accepted for art supplies, paint and paint supplies, science materials, athletic supplies, blacktop, filters, batteries, garbage services, gasoline and diesel fuel for the 2013-2014 school year, as well as technology supplies for six months.

There were multiple bidders in each category.

“This is basically our annual consumable supplies,” said Superintendent Doug Bennett.

Insurance bids were also awarded to Liberty Mutual for general liability, fleet and property, KEMI received the bid for Worker’s Compensation, Gallaghr was awarded the bid for pollution insurance coverage and Scholastic Insurance received the bid for student accident insurance coverage.

In other business, some small updates were made in the Student Code of Conduct. The main change came under the tobacco use policy, which added a ban of electronic cigarettes in order to keep up with today’s technology.

The first reading was held on the approval of KSBA board policy updates, procedures, and updates made to the employee handbook.

It was also approved that First National Bank and Cumberland Valley National Bank remain as depositors for the school district.

“This is just something that has to be renewed every two years; everything has always went well with these two banks,” said Bennett.

Student learning and support services such as use of school facilities, fundraiser requests, payment of bills, out of state student travel requests and out of state staff professional development was approved. Under the student support and learning services, it was also approved that a speech language pathologist position be created, as well as a parent educator position for Bush/Johnson/Camp Ground Family Resource Center.

It was also a special evening for three young men who were awarded their high school diplomas at the Laurel County Board of Education meeting.

North Laurel High School principal Mike Black and Bennett awarded Che Cash, Jared Jones and Steven Patton their diplomas during a summer school graduation ceremony held at the beginning of the meeting.
