Madill School Board conducts August meeting


The Madill School Board held their monthly meeting on August 5. After covering all the “housekeeping” issues like past meeting minutes, Madill Superintendent Larry Case gave a report. “We have a lot going on,” Case said. “I am excited about all the new progress going on.”

He said everything was going fine, except for the Early Childhood Center. It seems something is activating the alarms and making them go off every day. He said there is a company going to look at it, and he is hopeful that a solution is found soon.

Once Case was through, he turned the floor over to the principals to inquire about the progress they were seeing. A representative from each school, Kristi Birdsong, Elissa Cox, Gaylynn Pierce, and Jason Ward all reported the schools are ready to begin the new year.

The board approved both agenda item eight — the Junior Achievement Program — and nine — the Oklahoma Department of Career and Technology Education program. These pilot programs will begin the Fiscal Year 2020.
