At the beginning of the meeting, Mattingly presented an award to elementary teacher Megan Jones, who started a school and community council last year, as well as a girls running club.
Jones was also praised by Karoline Tedrow, a 5th grader, who said she has lost 38 pounds while participating in the girls running club. She has run in several 5-kilometer races and is now preparing for a 10-kilometer run.
Hall told the 30 people attending the meeting in the high school library that the school board wants to “go down a different road.” He pledged the board members will provide as much information to the public as they can legally.
“I hope we will build your trust,” Hall said.
No one spoke during a public hearing on the proposed 2014 corporation budget, including the capital projects plan and bus replacement plan. The board will vote on the budget plan during its Oct. 22 meeting.
