            The afternoon session of our Staff Development Day had to be cancelled because of the bad weather.  We also closed the following day due to the weather.

            Donald Cobb asked if we had a chance to check on the custodial assistant yet.  Randy advised that Bill is dong fine right now, but we will be checking into this in the future.

            Donald Cobb asked if we were going to give Christmas bonuses to the staff this year.  Randy advised that according to Nelda, Christmas bonuses were unconstitutional.  This was discussed earlier in the year, and decided the Board would not be doing it this year because of Kentucky constitutional issues.
