Special Shelby County R-IV Board Discuss Options if Bond Issue Fails
Click Photo to Enlarge  

Approximately 75 to 80 people from both Shelbina and Clarence attended Monday night’s school board work session that was held in the high school commons, as board members discussed options (or plan B) if the April bond issue fails.
   With a bond issue on the April ballot giving voters a choice of whether the district should build a new consolidated elementary school on the South Shelby campus, Superintendent Tim Maddex and members of the school board talked about options for a backup plan in case the measure is defeated.
   Maddex went over a presentation of slides that he plans to take to the public to explain facts and numbers as to why the board voted to put the issue on the ballot. There were some things that board members asked to be added.
   Aaron Gaines asked if he could add the cost of remaining as is, and upgrading the facilities over a 20 year operating cycle.
   Other issues that were brought up included the bus pickup in the back of the school that would keep children away from the traffic in the front of the school. Also a district-wide safe room in case of storms. The issue of security in the front of the building. The need to show the classroom square footage, and the fact that it would be the same or bigger than the current rooms.
   One of the pros of that was asked to be added was addressing the challenges of currently being able to hire lunch room staff, support staff and substitute teachers.
   As for estimated tax increase numbers, it was requested to put estimated numbers for farm land, agriculture equipment values and livestock. Maddex said he would add that as well.
   Board member Jarrell Foreman asked that with the estimated $320,000 savings, they would be using $200,000 of that to go toward the project. He then pointed out that the 73 cent levy will generate approximately $400,000. Maddex said that the $400,000 along with the $200,000 will help make the roughly $600,000 payments.

According to South Shelby National Honor Society sponsor Hillary Greenwell, NHS is hosting its annual Blood Drive on Feb. 15, from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the high school gym.
   There is a critical need for blood at this time, due to the bad weather and flu this season limiting the number of donations.
   Ongoing severe winter weather has more than doubled the number of canceled American Red Cross blood drives and the resulting blood and platelet donation shortfall since earlier this month. The Red Cross now considers the situation critical and is reissuing an urgent call for blood and platelet donors.
