Last night’s meeting of the Lincoln Parish School Board (LPSB) was relatively uneventful, comparatively speaking.
Cathi Boniol reported on an event scheduled for Thursday, August 9, 5:00-7:00 PM for the Ruston District’s four elementary schools – Glenview, Cypress Springs, Hillcrest, and Ruston – called “One 4 All.” It consists of a special “walkthrough” event at each of the schools where parents can meet the principal, tour the school, and visit with members of the faculty and staff.

Superintendent Danny Bell reported on a new program called “Principal Leaders,” where administrators from the “A” and “B” schools will be assisting the schools in the district that aren’t as highly ranked. Those administrators will work with faculty to explore news ideas and strategy. Bell noted that the principals in the district all support one another.
Said Bell, “I know that this is no easy undertaking.” But, he added, “We can’t turn back the clock on accountability.”
Two change orders were approved for the New Tech/Agriculture building construction at Ruston High School (RHS). A $122 thousand change order will allow construction of a covered area that will allow agriculture students to do large projects, and an $8 thousand change will accommodate relocation of a gas line.
Under New Business, George Murphy submitted a revised budget for the fiscal year 2011-2012.
