The school board for the Pearl River County School District held a short meeting last night to discuss several agenda items.

Nina Guthrie, assistant superintendent, read the superintendent’s report in the absence of Superintendent Dennis Penton.

“Dub Herring had a survey done on St. Michael’s property that we are trying to purchase, and the cost of that is — he is allowing us to purchase that (the survey) for half the cost at $2,500. This would complete the purchase of that property, if you are in agreement with doing that,” Guthrie said.
