A committee con- sisting of Mark Ferrell, Guy Smith and Charles Morman will work to provide a recommendation for trustees prior to the next meeting. The bus barn project had previously been included in the 1906-87 goal year, but trustee Charles Morman requested that it be included in coming year. "We are asking a g )d man to work under terrible conditions," Morman told his fellow trustees, Trustees unanimously agreed that construction of the sports complex should begin with the 1984-85 year with $225,000 allocated for that project. Fun- expected to cost in the area of $75,000; $25,000 for lighting; $30,000 for parking; $40,000 for fencing, water hook-up and septic system; and $50,000 for bleachers. The 1905-86 budget year will provide the completion of the sports complex including the addition of three to five tennis courts; new carpeting for the elementary building; a computer for the business office and new seats in the high school auditorium. Expected im- provement expenditures for the year will be $138,000. The 1986 budget year will allocate funds for a cafeteria at the high school. Board president Ron Speed told trustees that he has asked Superinten- dent Norman Plemons to contact a Tyler firm about submitting an ap- plication for a federal grant that will pay 5096 of lighting costs for school. Sp- eed said that if the school qualifies, the planned lighting work at the high school gym would be included in the ap- pllcation. Trustees also discussed the possibility of the district receiving some unexpected funds due to bookkeeping changes. If the funds arrive they will be utilized in future goals expenditures. "I would like to see us excell," Speed told trustees, "to look beyond playing catch-up. I would like to see us initiate some programs in the near future where we step out and take the lead with new inovations, new ideas." Following executive session the board accepted the resignation of Beverly Massingill and Kathy Knapton. They also approved a motion allowing Plemons to fill the vacancies and to employ a certified physical education teacher. " Plemons said that secretary Leda Lee is being transferred as a physical education aide. The secretary's position is to be filled, according to Plemons.
