School Board approves coaching stipends; Robinson notes school year off to good

At Thursday night’s Grayson County School Board meeting, Superintendent Doug Robinson praised the district’s teachers and staff for a smooth opening to the new school year, recognizing the often unrecognized Central Office staff by saying that, “It’s been hectic and they’ve been such troopers. I don’t brag on the Central Staff enough, but they do a great job.”

The board then adopted the Data Security and Breach Notification Best Practice Guide for the new school year, along with approving a trip to be made by the Grayson County High School volleyball team to Owensboro to participate in a tournament at Apollo High School on August 18 and 19.

The board also approved several assistant coaching stipends for high school sports teams, including football coaches (seven coaches to split $13,750), girls basketball coaches ($7,000 to be split among four coaches), softball coaches ($4,500 to be split among three coaches).

Board members, as well as School Board Attorney David Vickery, entered into a closed session to discuss litigation and emerged saying that no action was taken regarding the matter.
