OSKALOOSA — High school associate principal Nicholas O'Brien and middle school assistant principal Clint Gingerich presented to the Oskaloosa Board of Education an update on the emergency operations plan.

Board members were shown a brief video on the reunification process staff members will use in the case of an emergency and a reunification kit.

“We’re a long ways from the end, but the goal is by next school year, that we have a plan in place,” Gingerich said.

Board members later approved the annual reading of the district’s emergency operations plan.

In other matters,

- Board members approved voluntary early retirement and resignation bonuses to encourage employees that know they will be leaving to provide the district enough time to rehire.

- Justin Shipman presented the Board during public comment with a reconsideration request containing 14 books currently available in the Oskaloosa Community School District.

- Campbell’s Driver’s Education was selected to offer a summer driver’s education service.

Board members will next meet 5 p.m. Nov. 23 in George Daily Auditorium to discuss recruitment for the hiring of a new superintendent. Aaron Hiinah, Clint O’Day and Kathy Butler, each voted onto the Board of Education the Nov. 3 election, will attend the meeting as well.

Tuesday, Dec. 14 at 6 p.m., the board will meet for the regular meeting. The three new new members will be sworn in.
