The Glasgow City School board met in regular session last night and approved changes in personnel as well as approved the tentative budget for 2013-2014 all designed with the goal of  “tightening their belt”  in light of funding cuts.  Superintendent Sean Howard is pleased with the minimal amount of changes they have had to make to achieve a sizable reduction in expenses.

The tentative budget for next year is $21,303,571.

On the topic of health, the board voted to purchase health insurance coverage for each student.  The premium has risen over the past couple of years, but they agreed to purchase school insurance for each student for next year at a rate of $58,250 with a $1,000 limit for Physical Therapy.


Meal prices next year will go up across the board by ten cents to move in compliance with the federal guidelines.



Also last night Chairman Richardson handed out the packets the board will be using to evaluate Superintendent Sean Howard at his annual review.  The board also went into closed session for a discussion of proposed or pending litigation, but no action was taken.


The meeting was held at Glasgow Middle School
