DeKalb BOE Honors Students

By Marla Jones, Reporter

RAINSVILLE, Ala. — The DeKalb County Board of Education held its regularly scheduled meeting on May 15, 2018 at Plainview High School.

During the meeting several groups were recognized for their accomplishments.  The winners from SkillsUSA and HOSA were introduced and honored for their placements in the state competition.  The Class 3A State Champions, Plainview Bears were honored, as well.

The Board addressed the need for school meals to increase.  A lunch changed from $2.00 to $2.10 and a breakfast will increase from $1.10 to $1.15.

A update was presented about the Tax Renewal Update that will be on the June 5 ballot.  The board stressed that this is not a new tax, just a renewal of what taxpayers are already paying.  These taxes go to fund such things as security in the school system.

In a Executive Session, the Board approved the purchase of The Mustard Seed Daycare that is adjacent to Plainview High School, at a cost of $240,000.
