North Daviess to receive more Title I funding

ELNORA — The North Daviess School Board learned Monday that the corporation will be getting increased Title I funding for the 2014-1015 school year.

Superintendent Bob Bell said that 4.2 percent increase in funds equates to $16,440 more than the schools received for the 2013-2014 school year. While the increase is more than what the corporation received last year, it is still less than what was received for the 2012-2013 school year.

The board also approved textbook rental and fees for the upcoming school year.

“Some of the fees went up slightly and some of them decreased a little,” said Bell.

Kindergarten fees are $65.95, first grade $119.44, second grade $107.42, third grade $97.48, fourth grade $107.69, fifth grade $112.47 and sixth grade $98.90. Fees for junior high and high school vary depending on the courses students choose to take. New Spanish textbooks were also adopted for the 2014-2015 school year.

In other business, Jeff Wickersham was appointed the girls varsity basketball coach. Darrell Brower will again be the boys and girls cross country coach.

Appointments were also approved for the football program. Rick Tribby and Jim Steffey will be co-coaches for the junior high football team and will split the head coaches stipend.

Steve Mervyn, Bill Remsberg, Brian Allen and Rob Hammer will split the stipend for the junior high assistant coaching position.

Jess Tribby and Jordan Miller will be the volunteer coaches for the high school football team.

Dairy and bakery item bids were also approved by the board. For the 19th year, Prairie Farms will be providing the dairy products.

Bell said Prairie Farms was only one to submit a bid and most of the product prices were the same as last year although the milk price increased seven cents per carton. Aunt Millie’s Bakery was approved to provide bakery items.

Breakfast and lunch prices were also announced for the upcoming year.
