"We won't lose any money and our tax records will be a whole lot better." Trustee Joe Cox at first indicated he felt the board should take some time to think about the hiring of Pritchard & Abbott, but then indicated that there was not need for delay and made the initial motion to hire the firm. The motion was approved unanimously. In other action, the board approved the Textbook Committee's recommenda- tions on textbooks, left a decision on fleet insurance for buses and school-owned vehicled to Supt. Murray after two bids weren't comparable, set driver education class fees at $75, and discussed problems arising out of failure of persons using the high school gym failing to clean it up on weekends. The trustees approved without question a list of textbooks which the committee had picked from recommendations of the- State Textbook Committee. The new related math text book deals more with basics and less with albegraic concepts, Murray said. Also School Will iili Menu iii0000.

Harris Insurance bid $2,528 for providing fleet insurance on school vehicles, and Wyle McClintock Insurance of Trinidad bid $2,524, but Harris bid $100 deductible while McClintock bid $250 deductible and Harris' medical payments were $1,000 per person compared to McClintock's $2,500. The board authorized Murray to consult with both insurors and get comparable prices, and go ahead and commit for insurance, which expires April 2. McClintock, who was present at the meeting, told the board it might save considerably on its insurance if it grouped all its coverage into a single bid each year rather than buying its policies at different times. Driver education fees were set at $75, after trustees heard a report from high school principal Jack Benton. Benton said that he would be able to handle a class of 35, but unless he got enought students to hold two classes of near 35 each, some students would have to be turned down for driver's ed. He said the class would be filled on a first come-first served basis. Trustees discussed the dilemma of not being able to handle more than 35 students unless two classes are filled, and indicated they might consider subsidizing the driver ed program if it should turn out to be marginal. The entire program is scheduled for the summer months, because that is the only period the Texas Education Agency will permit the assessing of extra charges because of the attorney general's ruling on fees to students implement- ed last fall. Benton also discussed a problem with the high school gym where Little Dribbler teams play each weekend. Benton said that the gym is often left uncleaned, particularly in the conces- sion area; special "hang on" baskets for the little teams are not removed from the standard goals, and half- empty cups of drinks are left in the gym. He said his janitorial people do not have time before classes begin Monday morning to clean up the gym, and the classes are forced to clean up the area they're using themselves. After a general discussion of the problem Jim Matting- ly indicated he would talk to the groups using the gym in an effort to get them to clean up behind themselves. Murray also indicated that there was a possibility the janitor staff could be paid on an overtime basis to get the gym cleaned up earlier. assessment to Austin in May. The board must approve the goals outlined by teacher and community surveys. Murray said the district would get into a "self study" of how well it is implement- ing the goals next year. Next month's regular board meeting, scheduled for April 18, was moved up a week to April 11 at 7 p.nL because the district's schools Murray told the trustees will be closed the week prior that he is in the process of'to the April 18 date. The completing the assessment trustees will promulgate of school district goals, and election returns and install that he hoped to finalize the new board members on that list in time to send the date also.
