ND to offer driver's ed class

ELNORA — The North Daviess School Board on Monday approved a driver’s education program for $350 per student as long as there are least 15 students enrolled.

“We’ve run a driver’s education program a number of years here,” said Superintendent Bob Bell. “Interest is high É It’s the same program as the last two or three years.”

The classroom portion will be conducted before school and run April 1 to about May 17, he said, with a minimum 30 hours of classroom time. The driving phase will be scheduled from approximately May 20 through June 21.

The superintendent also made two bus-related recommendations that were approved. Route three, owned by Melinda Perkins, was transferred to Paul Albertson, who has been driving the route for the past month. Also, an extension of 1.4 miles per day - an extra $4.49 per day - was approved for Becky Eaton’s route to accommodate new students on the route.

Board members also approved a conflict of interest statement for Maintenance Director Darrell Wagler.

“Darrell may occasionally sell us water filters,” Bell said, adding the amount would less than $1,000 a year.

Bell reported the snow makeup day from Friday, Feb. 1, will be Friday, March 1.

He also told the board the corporation received almost the entire reimbursement requested for textbook assistance.

“We received our textbook reimbursement check of $33,510.45 from the $33,917.29 that was submitted to DOE (Department of Education),” Bell said. “This money is reimbursement for those students who qualified for textbook assistance.”

In his report to the school board, high school Principal Jed Jerrels said both the junior high/high school and elementary buildings ran a lockdown drill Feb. 11. He said there are areas in the junior/senior building that need enhanced security, and the process will be ongoing.

“All in all, it was a great first step to the security of the students and staff,” Jerrels said.
