The Cloverdale School Board recently convened for its monthly meeting.

Following the approval of routine matters such as meeting minutes, claims and financial reports and board policy review, the board moved on to communications.

Dan Sulkoske met with the board, presenting an update on the drainage project phase II upgrade. First advertisement and second advertisement started March 3rd and bids will be received through April 8. A recommendation will be presented at the next board meeting, scheduled for April 14. This would give an early start date for May, with the board’s discretion being May, June or July for the project to get underway.

The board next heard from Vivian Whitaker regarding the Dollars for Scholars program and in particular, the recent phone-a-thon event. According to Whitaker, 16 students made phone calls over a nine-hour period. In all, 290 people pledged to donate a total of $11,578 and as over March 10th, $9,195 had been collected. A donor, who at this time remains anonymous, pledged to match the total phone-a-thon amount of $11,578. A Putnam County Community Foundation Endowment Build Grant in the amount of $3,335.57 brings the grand total raised to over $26,000.

Next on the agenda was a review of the 2011- 2013 audit, presented by superintendent Dr. Carrie Milner. During the exit interview, no significant concerns were found, but a few suggestions were presented.

It was announced that several artists from the elementary, middle school and high school levels have artwork that is currently being recognized and is on exhibit at the Putnam County Museum. The exhibit continues through the end of April.

The corporation has a pre-school proposal sent to both the Owen County and Putnam County community foundations in hopes of possibly moving forward in the fall.

Moving on to new business, the board accepted a donation in the amount of $400 from Our Community Bank (OCB), which sponsored the annual board retreat. The board also approved the use of the CHS track by the Eminence Jr./ Sr. High School.
