The Russell County School Board approved a change order to the work now completed on the Russell County Auditorium/Natatorium.
The deduction closed out $104,133 in materials not needed from Gaddie Shamrock.
In the financial report the board was told that the district began the month of February with $3.4 million and ended it with $2.7 million.
As the meeting was drawing to a close Superintended Scott Pierce said the changes in the testing and core content for schools would be, “The biggest thing in education since the creation of KERA (the Kentucky Education Reform Act of 1990).”
Pierce said that staff was already moving forward with meetings and plans to develop teacher preparation materials for the change to national standards.
He added that it would do away with the No Child Left Behind program of giving schools either an F or an A grade.
Pierce added that the website corestandards.org has details and a survey that teachers and parents are welcome to use to investigate further.
