GREEN:  Bids are being sought for two proposed projects at Green Local Schools to determine if permanent improvement funds are available to cover the costs.

Superintendent Michael E. Nutter told the Board of Education March 18 that the administration would like to know cost estimates for converting an unused shop area at Green Intermediate School into three classrooms to benefit students and teachers in the fourth through sixth grades.

Board President Steve Foster stressed that this is not a construction addition but rather a renovation within the existing school for a more efficient use of existing, unused space.

Nutter said the track at Bulldog Stadium also is in need of resurfacing.

Board member Bob Campbell estimated that the track is at least 10 years old.

The board also accepted a $2,500 donation from Edward Cope, a 1942 graduate of Green High School. The funds are to be used to continue to benefit students at the Green Primary School.

Treasurer Eydie Snowberger also was granted approval to revise two federal funds figures due to budget revisions by the Ohio Department of Education.

She said Title IIA funding would be increased by $1,829.80, while Title I funds would be reduced by $9,765.17.

The board also accepted the retirements of kindergarten teacher JoAnne McHenry after 40 years of teaching, including 37 in Green and guidance counselor Malia Miller, who is retiring after 23 years at Green Local Schools.
