CENTERBURG — Roger Clark is the 2014 president of the Centerburg Board of Education and Colby Clippinger will act as vice president. New member Kristi Layton was appointed to serve as legislative liaison and Clippinger was re-appointed the Knox County Career Center observer for the board.

Treasurer Ellen Scott told the News on Tuesday the rest of the meeting was largely routine. The board approved routine annual re-oganizational items and designated the Mount Vernon News as the official newspaper for Centerburg Local Schools.

Besides approving routine monthly fiscal reports and actions, the board accepted a $5,000 donation from the Centerburg Athletic Boosters to the Wellness fund and $500 from Food for the Hungry for 21st Century Program after school snacks at the high school.

Regarding personnel, the board made adjustments in the daily hours for bus drivers Linda Gates and Tami Smoke. Gates’ hours were increased to four hours daily to accommodate the transportation of students to and from the KCCC. Smoke’s hours were decreased to 3.25 hours daily, retroactive to Jan. 8.
