New trustee to be seated Tuesday

Special meeting scheduled on Idaho Open Meeting Law

Hailey resident Kathryn Graves will officially become a member of the Blaine County School District board of trustees at the board's next regular meeting Tuesday evening.

The oath-of-office ceremony is scheduled as one of the first items of business for the board, preceded only by the call to order and Pledge of Allegiance.

But before that, the board has scheduled a special meeting for a review of the Idaho Open Meeting Law by the district's attorney, Adam King.

The special meeting is scheduled to run from 5-6 p.m., while the regular school board meeting is set to begin at 6:30 p.m. Both meetings will be held at the district office at 118 W. Bullion St. in Hailey.

Graves was selected as the Zone 3 trustee at a special school board meeting on Sept. 28. She replaces former Trustee Mari Beth Matthews, who resigned in July.

In other business at the regular meeting, the board will hear a presentation on "The Leader in Me" program at Hailey Elementary School, a construction update one work under way at Bellevue Elementary School and a report from district Superintendent Lonnie Barber on preparations for this year's Idaho Standard Achievement Testing.

District Business Manager Mike Chatterton will ask the board to approve a district audit report and for permission to continue sales of certificates of participation for advance spending on the 10-year $59.8 million plant facilities levy approved by the Blaine County voters in 2009.
