Olney ISD School Board Meeting
Monday, June 10, the Olney ISD school board recognized that a quorum was present and called the meeting to order. The following are the highlights of the meeting. Minutes from the last meeting were reviewed and approved. There were no public comments, so the board moved on to budget amendments. The budget was approved with no major budget adjustments. The members began the discussion about the wind farm and ended with no new updates. The next agenda item up for discussion was school construction. It was noted that there were still a few odds and ends being finished up, but in general, the school construction is complete. In regard to enrollment and staffing, notable points included the resignation of Coach Harris, the approval of Macy Nantz for a probationary contract to teach pre-K, the approval of Hayden Elrod for a probationary contract for Head Baseball Coach, and the approval of Kevin Causey for a 12-month contract as AG teacher. The next two school board meetings that were approved will occur July 15 and Aug. 26. Parents and residents who are interested in the Olney ISD are encouraged to make the meetings, which start at 6 p.m.
