GROVETON — Students in Groveton Independent School District are in pretty safe hands
At its Oct. 26 meeting, the Groveton School Board approved a safety audit which Superintendent Don Hamilton said was overall very good.
“We have a few things we know we need to deal with, but overall it’s good,” he said.
Hamilton said the layout of the building is of a concern, because its age means it does not meet current safety and fire codes, but for the most part, the kids are going to school in a safe environment.
In other business, the board:
•approved the ESL program;
•approved changes of names from the signature card on the school’s account;
•changed meeting dates for next two meetings because of upcoming holidays. The November meeting will be held Nov. 16, and the December meeting will be held Dec. 17;
•discussed new goals for the future;
•approved purchase of 20 interactive boards to replace older models at a cost of $40,000; and
•approved an annual pay stipend, to be paid to non-professional employees only.
