ASHLAND – At the March 16 meeting of the Ashland-Greenwood Board of Education, the superintendent of schools was given authority to act during the school closure period due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Superintendent Jason Libal was authorized by the school board to pay claims, determine which employees are essential and take any actions necessary during the closure.
The school district has suspended classes for an “indefinite period of time,” according to a message sent to patrons on March 19.
In other action, the board approved a bid of $355,885 from MMC Contractors to replace the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems at the elementary school.
The board also tabled action on the major equipment and furniture requests and Capital Outlay expenditures for 2020-2021.
