The Pineville Independent Board of Education approved an updated list of goals for the new year at their meeting on Monday.
These goals are established to give the board an outline to achieve success for the 2014-2015 school year.
The goals include using different approaches to educating which will better student achievement, continue support for extracurricular and instructional activities through the budget, increase attendance for school children, continued safety monitoring, and engagement through community organizations and businesses.
Pineville Mayor Sherwin Rader swore in the newest member of the school board — Mary Steele.
Rader also presented board members with a certificate of thanks as part of School Board Member Recognition Month which is observed during January.
The 2014-2015 budget was approved.
It was noted that 49.5 per cent of the current year’s budget has been spent.
The board approved an offer from the Kentucky Schools Facilities Construction Commission in the amount of just under $6,000.
“It’s been a while since we’ve gotten this kind of offer, but we really appreciate it,” said Superintendent Terry Hayes.
This offer of assistance will go toward bond sales for future construction projects and were based on the most recent version of the school facilities plan.
