Two schools in Sheridan County School District 2 have received national recognition.

The honors for Sagebrush Elementary and Sheridan Junior High School were announced at Monday night's meeting of the district's board of trustees.

Assistant Superintendent Mitch Craft said Sagebrush has just been named a national Model PLC School. The letters stand for professional learning community.

Craft said Sagebrush has been implementing the PLC model for about five years.

Sheridan Junior High School has been named a National Distinguished Title I School.

Also recognized Monday night was trustee Wayne Schatz, who's been named the AARP Retired Educator of the Year. District 2 Superintendent Craig Dougherty said Schatz spends tireless hours promoting and working for education in the community.

In other action Monday, district trustees approved a proposal to replace five of the district's buses. Three are 2006 models, one is 2009 and one is 2010.

Trustees also accepted the audit report for fiscal year 2017-2018, and approved a donation from Java Moon of a coffee card for every district employee. Dougherty said Java Moon has been making the annual donation for many years as a show of support for the school district.

Craft also reported on grant awards for the current fiscal year. The district has received nearly $3.3 million in grants.
