“This is a great benefit to our students,” Merritt said.
The Board also approved a special events agreement with the Poplarville Police Department for football games, which begins Friday, and other after-school events.
In other matters, the Board:
-Approved to advertise that the District has buses for sale.
-Approved a resolution and request for ad valorem taxes, not to exceed the current 55 mills and three service mills to retire debt.
The Board will meet again on Sept. 11 at 6 p.m.
