School board to rehash openness

Public information initiatives to be discussed at Tuesday meeting

The Blaine County School District board of trustees will consider new public openness initiatives at its next meeting Tuesday night.

The discussion stems from proposals raised at the July 13 board meeting by trustees Paul Bates and Steve Guthrie. Bates suggested that board meetings be moved to a new location, possibly the Distance Learning Center at Wood River High School. Guthrie suggested that two town hall meetings be scheduled, one in October and another next March.

The board will also consider additional meeting notice and agenda posting locations. Officially the board now posts notices and agendas at four locations in Hailey, but is considering additional locations.

Tuesday's meeting starts at 6:30 p.m. at the district office at 118 West Bullion St. in Hailey.

In other business, district Business Manger Mike Chatterton will give an update on construction currently underway at Bellevue Elementary School. Buffalo Rixon and Nick Latham, representatives of the Ruscitto/Latham/Blanton architectural firm, will show the board a proposed design for new addition at Bellevue Elementary.

An update on summer school will be given by Summer School Principal Ron Martinez and an update on all-day kindergarten will be given by Bellevue Elementary School Principal Angie Martinez.

Assistant Superintendent John Blackman will give a presentation on a proposed variable schedule that would begin in the 2011-2012 school year at Wood River High School.
