MCS school board to revisit climate audit

by the WPD STAFF

The Manchester Community Schools Board of School Trustees will consider hiring a new athletic director and review the school corporation’s climate audit at the board’s next meeting on Tuesday.

Results from the audit were first shared with the board in June. School Board President Steve Flak said at the time that the information shared that evening will help shape the district’s strategic planning process, expected to start in earnest this summer.

The board is also expected to consider an agreement with the Indiana School Boards Association regarding its superintendent search, which the board plans to begin in 2019, and discuss the recent petition for a public question regarding Squire Fieldhouse and related building plans the board approved this summer.

The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the MCS Administration Building, 404 W. Ninth St., North Manchester.

On Monday, the Wabash County Board of Commissioners will open bids for the replacement of the Meridian Road bridge over Clear Creek. The bids will be considered at 9:30 a.m., following the commissioners’ weekly meeting held at 9 a.m. in the Wabash County Courthouse, 1 W. Hill St., Wabash.

Mitch Figert from the Wabash County Historical Museum is scheduled to meet with the commissioners at that time to discuss possible funding for 2019.

Then at 6 p.m. Monday, the Wabash City Council will meet to witness the swearing in of new officers, firefighters and paramedics recently hired by city departments.

The Metropolitan School District of Wabash County Board of School Trustees will meet for regular business at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, during which the board will consider a recommendation to keep lunch prices for the upcoming school year the same as they were in 2017-18.
