Opportunity for Board Communication:

Mr. Vick Conway remarked that the PA system seems to be working better at the high school.  

Mr. Mike Van Horn asked about looking into getting the concrete replaced at the high school in front of the high school gym entrance.  Mr. Brown responded that he is aware of this and we will replace this when the weather is a little warmer. 

Mrs. Angie Johnson asked about a possible light outside the high school gym doors.  It is so dark going out into the parking lot.  Mr. Brown and the Board are going to look at this when they go over to walk through the high school cafeteria/stage area.
