Sheridan County School District 1 board of trustees met for their regular meeting Tuesday night in Big Horn and talked about ways to add new programs in schools.
The board discussed joining a BOCES or Board of Cooperative Educational Services program, according to Superintendent Marty Kobza. He explains that this would be a way for the district to seek additional funding for specific programming like career and technical education.
Also at the meeting the district scheduled a work session to discuss district-wide extra curricular activities. The work session will address whether or not there are any activities the district would like to add beginning next year. That meeting will be April 6.
The board also accepted bids for stadium improvements at both Tongue River High School and Big Horn High School which will include 750 added seats and track surfacing at each facility. Construction begins this spring.
In school news, Tongue River has parent teacher conferences this Thursday and Friday, and students and staff have moved into the new Big Horn Elementary.
Pat Mischke and Kathy Stutheit are teachers District 1 of the month. Mischke is a facts teacher at Tongue River High School and Stutheit teaches math at Big Horn High School.
