Discussion: 

The rules were suspended to ask MCHS principal John Bush of potential coaches have been identified and if there is a large student interest in the program.

Continuing the Director's Report, Mr. Sorrells stated that he would like to add two early-release days for students (one in the fall, one in spring) in next year's calendar to allow all teachers to come together in the afternoon as district teams to discuss data, common assessments, and best practices. Board members asked if, instead of early release, it would be best to give students the entire day, and possibly be more beneficial for the teachers. Mr. Sorrells will bring this topic and a proposed schedule to the April board meeting.

Mr. Sorrells explained that Preston Hopkins sustained a lot of storm damage last week, which included blowing off the back of the pressbox, blowing the side door off, and ripping out some wiring and electronics. With plans to possibly make Preston Hopkins strictly a baseball field, Mr. Sorrells suggested patching the pressbox until further options are presented. He also mentioned that the tennis wall at Lewisburg Middle School had blown down. Finance Director Janet Wiles has been in contact with the insurance company.

On the topic of a new football stadium, Mr. Sorrells will contact (architect) John Trail about the cost of the stadium in order to have some numbers when budget talks begin.

The board discussed various locations and options for a baseball park/football stadium.
