Another item in the request is for a new van for the technology department. The current van is 26 years old and has 225,000 miles on it. This item will cost $24,800.00. For a grand total of $77,100.96 for the ESPLOST request. The board did vote to approve the request.

The Director of Student Services MaryKay Berry and the Family Connections have also come together on a project for the students. They have bought a display for high traffic areas in the Middle School and High School filled with school supplies.

The display to hang in the schools.

This is for when students forget something they need, it’s right there for them to use. The supplies came from the Stuff the Bus program the school system does every school year in front of Wal-Mart or the school drive.

“MaryKay Student Services and Lindsey has a great idea to locate those in every school so when a kid forgets a pencil or needs whatever it is they need they are able to just grab it instead of having to go ask,” explained Burkett.
