School Board Agenda Prompts Questions



Discipline. Money. And the four day week. Those make up some of the agenda items for Monday’s Luther Board of Education meeting. This is the first meeting of the board since last month’s election where district voters overwhelmingly rejected the controversial “Redefining Rural Education in Luther, OK” bond issue. Indeed, many financial related items are on the agenda, like this one:


21. Discussion and possible vote to disavow actions and communications of school board member Charles DeFuria in relation to claim of Oklahoma City Public Schools for re-payment of sinking fund monies.

Other items will include Superintendent Sheldon Buxton’s financial report, bond issue survey results and “projected budget concerns.” Related to that, no doubt, is another agenda item: “discussion on budget plan for second semester and a four day work week.”

But the meeting won’t be all (hundreds of thousands of) dollars and cents; Supt. Buxton will also give a report on discipline in the high school. And a tardy policy will be discussed.

We’ll be there Monday night to cover the meeting. Check back.

Have a thought? Please share. And thanks.
