CENTERVILLE — The final meeting of 2021 shows that things are progressing as expected, and it’s shaping up to be a good year.
Superintendent Mark Brown said Centerville has had a really good first semester.
“I know it’s odd to already be talking about a semester, but it’s flown by,” he said. “Benchmark testing looks to be pretty good. The theory is that with COVID, there will be some gaps, and we have some, but the teachers have been doing a good job getting the kids where they need to be.”
Brown also said that baseball field construction is coming along, and crews will start work on installing dugouts this week. The coaches and crews also have been working on the pitching mound, and hopefully, the Bulldogs team will get to play at home this year.
District basketball began last week as well.
In a separate matter, the school has delayed bus purchases, which was going to be from another school district, because that district does not have its new buses purchased.
Brown said that they may not get replacements buses this year.
