MOUNTAIN VIEW – The Mountain View school board continued to tweak its staff and handle day-to-day business at their meeting Tuesday night in Mountain View.
The board adjusted the district’s coaching staff during their meeting. Michael Collins was named the assistant wrestling coach for the high school. Brian Tims was named the assistant wrestling coach for the middle school.
In the school’s track program, there was a change in two positions. Head high school track coach Jim Dolezal resigned. He was replaced by the transfer of Joel Giorgis from the position of assistant coach to head track coach.
The board also approved the travel of two high school groups—Jim Bridger FFA Chapter member were given permission to addend the National Western Stock Show in Denver in January, and the FCCLA were given permission to attend a mini-national meeting in Reno. The trips included providing bus transportation for the FFA to Denver and transportation to and from the Salt Lake City Airport for the FCLLA.
The board accepted the district’s audit report for the last fiscal year. According to the report presented by David DeCoria of Hirschi DeCoria & Company PC, Star Valley, the district’s accounting staff was more professional and doing a better job in the last three years than when his firm started auditing the district. He said no major problems were discovered in the audit. By state statute, DeCoria said, the district could not overspend. He encouraged the board members to ask questions if they didn’t understand all the expenditures. DeCoria said they need to “ask, and it is your right.”
During the discussion period, Newton said there was a meeting at the construction site Tuesday afternoon. He said the contractors expect to start pouring concrete in two weeks. At this time, the contractors had “stripped the top soil” on approximately half of the site and anticipated the other half would be done if a few days. In about another week, it was anticipated, some of the infrastructure, wiring, etc. would be started.For the complete article see the 11-09-2012 issue.
