CLEAR FORK VALLEY — The construction of two new elementary schools for the Clear Fork School District is proceeding well, Clear Fork School District board members were told Thursday night.
Representatives of Garmann Miller, the architectural firm, made a presentation to the board.
The buildings, at Butler and Bellville, show portions at the Butler site rising from footers. The Butler building will sit behind the current Butler elementary school.
The site at Bellville is more difficult, so progress there is not as noticeable as at the Butler site.
The new building will have to be constructed adjacent to the current 100 year old building, and traffic patterns around that site have made things complicated.
The board’s meeting, the last of this year, was preceded by an executive session where the work of Bradd Stevens, treasurer, was evaluated.
Board superintendent Janice Wyckoff said that review is an annual event.
Two board members, president Jim DeSanto and Jim Klenk, will be leaving the board at the end of the year.
DeSanto and Klenk were presented plaques which recognized their service.
Three new board members will be sworn in in January. Two of them are new. They are Kyle Beveridge and Jennifer Stallard. Board member Amy Weekley was re-elected. She was named to fill the seat of board member Jason Snyder who had to resign in the middle of the year.
Business items on the school board agenda were routine. Several people were added as employees on a supplemental basis.
The board voted to approve purchase of a handicap equipped bus. The purchase of a new regular service bus had been discussed but the decision was made to go the route of acquiring a handicap service bus.
