Dr. Wes Russell of Shelbina was one of six people to speak during the public comment period at the Shelby County R-IV School Board meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 14.

Just under 200 people attended the Shelby County R-IV School Board meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 14 at South Shelby High School.
   During that meeting, six people spoke about the idea of building a new South Shelby Elementary School. This has been a hot topic for years, and has heated up in recent months with the issue going back on the April ballot.
   Decision on Backup Plan
   Board member Scott Gough made a motion that if Proposition K.I.D.S. passes in April, for the elementary schools to remain in Clarence and Shelbina for the 2018-19 school year with grade consolidation at Clarence. If Proposition K.I.D.S. fails in April, the board will look at its options at that time to include the combining schools in one town or leaving the elementary schools in the towns for the 2018-19 school year with grade consolidation at Clarence. The motion was approved by a 6-1 vote with Jarrell Foreman voting against the measure.
   The board accepted resignations from Deb Trivette, who taught 29 years, her last 11 in Shelby County R-IV, and Mary Jo Kattleman, who served as the elementary art teacher, and Allison Barry, who has been in the district for the last 23 years.

Shelby County R-IV Superintendent Tim Maddex reported during Wednesday night’s school board meeting that a group of patrons has brought to his attention that there could be a possible petition for a boundary change of the west part of the district.
   Maddex said that he had been in contact with DESE and the local county clerks. He said that the next available election that this issue could be on would be in August, with the filing date being in the later part of May.
   According to David Trammel of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE), these requests are usually made for individuals in a district, and not a large area. He said that only one time has this ever been applied in the way it’s being presented to Shelby County R-IV.
   Maddex went over the state statute as it pertains to a boundary change. It stated that 10 percent of the voters by number of those voting for school board members in the last annual school election in each district may petition the district boards of education in the districts affected, regardless of county lines, for a change in boundaries. Trammel said he thought that it was either 10 percent or a minimum number of voters.
