The El Dorado Springs R-II Board, in their October meeting last Thursday evening, disagreed agreeably voting 4-3 to go out for bids on bus service.

They had the option to renew with Durham at a 3% increase but some members thought that in this economy they might get a better price.

All board members were present: Jay Farris, Scott Cluck Benny Brower, Allen Hoover, Kevin Fast, Greg Beydler and Darrell Eason – presiding.

CTA President Jennifer Ring gave the board a Teacher Feature on Jill Moffat and Barb McClain.

Superintendent Mark Koca asked the board what to do with the Morlan house on Twyman which the board purchased to obtain the land north of it which abuts school property. The board decided to ask the board members who are realtors, Jay Farris and Benny Brower, to give the board direction.

The board voted to add a data manager to the district staff.

The board approved the payment of bills totaling $566,288.75.
