RIGGINS The Salmon River Joint School District took care of some general housekeeping items on its agenda at the Nov. 21 meeting. One action item, however, received a little assistance from student Maddie Tucker.
Tucker’s senior project was to work with the school nurse to inventory and assess the first-aid equipment and supplies at the Salmon River Junior/Senior High School. Superintendent Jim Doramus also said she researched the purchase of an automated external defibrillator (AED).
He said the board approved a motion to make the purchase. Tucker will continue to work with the administration to develop a maintenance schedule for the device.
The board also approved the hire of Levi Tucker as the new SRJSHS JV basketball coach. Doramus said Levi is the son of SRJSHS volleyball coach Paula Tucker.
Also on the agenda:
Discussed a district improvement plan. Doramus said the board added an amendment to the plan already in place. The new addition makes accommodations for how the district addresses and assists its transient students, he said;
Discussed the Fredrickson lease agreement. Currently, Doramus said, the district leases the old elementary school building on Main Street to the Salmon River Rafting Company. The board discussed how they would like to proceed on the lease agreement should the rafting company sell its operations to another company;
Approved the purchase of new security cameras and demolition of a storage building. The purchase of cameras is to replace worn out equipment at the high school, Doramus said. The storage building is located at the elementary school and was leaking, he said. Staff has been able to clean out and eliminate unnecessary items in other storage areas to accommodate what remains to be stored.
And received an update on Idaho State Board Association resolutions and federal overtime guidelines;
The next meeting for the board is slated for 6 p.m. Dec. 19 at the Salmon River Junior-Senior High School.
