Holder Takes Over Reins At School
The Sulphur Board of Education met Monday for their regular monthly meeting with new Superintendent Matt Holder at the helm.
Prior to agenda action, two new employees were introduced at the meeting including Kellye Swearingen, 3rd grade teacher at the intermediate school and Sarah Burrows, new elementary school paraprofessional.
Holder presented the financial report prepared by Treasurer David Harp. He told members the district was in good financial shape with $2.4 million dollars in the general fund, $600,00.00 in the building fund and $197,000.00 in the Child Nutrition Fund.
The action agenda contained mostly re-curring and annually-approved items.
The board approved the Meal Charge Policy for the Child Nutrition Program. The policy included a paragraph stating students who received donations must have filled out a free and reduced lunch application and can only receive funds once per semester.
The board approved action on the renewal of a lease purchase agreement with BancFirst for property located at 1215 West 6th in Sulphur, as well as a renewal of lease purchase agreement with Landmark Bank for a 2020 school bus. Both items were for the 2019-2020 school year.
