Short meeting for NSB

ROSSTON – From start to finish, the August meeting of the Nevada School Board lasted seven minutes.

The main items dealt with was approving a proposed budget with tax levy for the 2023-24 fiscal year, and for the board members to draw and see how long their terms would be. As to the tax levy, this is not a new tax, but the existing millage that’s on the ballot every year and isn’t changing as the district is not seeking a millage increase.

As to the board’s terms, this was done as none will be opposed in the September school election. Matthew Herring will serve one year and have to run again next year. Brandon Rhodes will be on the board two more years before having to run again, while Chris Fore pulled the three year term, with Lasonia Standoak getting four years and David Barr five.

The board was told the new year is off to a good start, with elementary students taking the start of the year tests to see where they are and high school students being OK with the new cell phone policy and dress code.

Superintendent Roy McCoy informed the panel enrollment is 407, up 33 students from last year.

The board agreed to hire Carolyn Dixon as a special education paraprofessoinal. In a special meeting earlier this month, the board hired Ebony Walker as girls basketball coach and Anna Childress as an interventionist.

Following the regular meeting, the board underwent financial training with Jason Holsclaw of Stephens, Inc.
