The Dieterich Unit #30 School Board held a Truth in Taxation Hearing and regular meeting on December 18th.
The Board opened the hearing at 6:15pm and adjourned it at 6:30pm. No comments were made during the truth in taxation hearing. The Board then opened their regular meeting at 6:30pm. During this meeting, the Board approved the annual insurance package renewal with Ramza Insurance, approved the Board Policy updates, and approved the 2017 District Tax Levy, which has a projected tax rate equal to that of last year. Additionally, the Board accepted a $150 donation from the Dieterich Women’s Club for allowing the club to host their annual craft fair at the school, accepted a resignation from elementary aide, Angela Miller, effective December 1st, and discussed improvements to the baseball and softball fields.
Additionally, the Dieterich School Board heard from several community members in regards to the formation of a trap shooting club. This club would be composed of Dieterich High School Students, but would not be a formal activity of the school. The School Board chose to obtain more information and revisit this item at the January School Board meeting.
The Dieterich School Board met in the Elementary School Library.
