The Shelby County R-IV School Board hired a boys basketball coach, and heard public comment discussing the district’s future plans during its regular monthly meeting in the middle school library on Wednesday, June 14.
   Public Comment
   Retired Shelby County R-IV employee Larry Mitchell was at the meeting to speak during the public comment portion of the meeting.
   Mitchell said it was important to honor those school district leaders of the past for their work in creating the district, and those who worked hard to create the middle school.
   “I feel like after your decision in the last meeting, it’s important for us to spend the money a little bit better. I think we need to integrate those single digit classrooms, and their teachers, and the administration to our Shelbina system, so that money is equally spent and well spent,” Mitchell said.
    “I also think since you have those classrooms in Clarence, you should move the classes out of the old building and into the new building. I think you should have a serious discussion with the Clarence community about that older building,” Mitchell added. “If that’s not done, feel like there has been $200,000 not managed very well as far as our children and our district are concerned.”
   Principals Reports
   Clarence Elementary Principal Kelly Williams reported that summer school had 32 enrolled and around 29 averaged each day. She noted the kids enjoyed their walking trips and visiting businesses within the community.
   She said they had some celebrations for students in the A+ program. She also mentioned the Preferred Family Health will be providing a program for 3rd through 5th grade students called “Too Good For Drugs.”
