The Shelby County R-IV School Board received a lot of information from Superintendent Tim Maddex about future enrollment, current cost and potential savings as it pertains to future options for the district. It also approved a resolution to accomplish priority capital facilities needs and operating fund needs. This took place during the regular January meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 10, at the South Shelby Middle School.
   Resolution for Lease
   Purchase for Ballot
   After a short discussion, the board approved a resolution for lease purchase for the ballot.
   Bruce Johnson of LJ Hart was on hand to go over the resolution and answer any questions anyone may have.
   Maddex recommended that the board approve the resolution, which is being called Proposition K.I.D.S. which would increase the operating tax levy ceiling to $,4,4800 per one hundred dollars of assessed valuation for the next 20 years. This will provide funds for the site development, construction, equipping and furnishing of a new elementary school and to the extent that funds are available, they will complete other renovations, remodeling and repair improvements to existing facilities, and to meet the additional operating needs of the district.
   The increase would take the levy from $3.75, where it stands currently, to $4.48 per $100 of assessed valuation. The motion was passed by the board with a 6-1 vote, with Jarrell Foreman voting against the measure.
   Future Planning
   Maddex talked to the board about future planning. He talked about possible scenarios to take if the measure doesn’t pass in April. He provided the board members with a lot of information to take home with them to look over.
   The first thing was a sheet that had a space for brainstorming and writing down positives and negatives of leaving the elementary classes the way they are, having combined classes in Clarence, or combining Clarence and Shelbina Elementary students in one location.
   He provided the board with a sheet with the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s recommendations for class sizes and enrollments.
