Eleven televisions and a van are going to be sold by Henryetta schools.
School board members declared them surplus Monday night to make them available to the public. The televisions are nearly 20 years old and, according to superintendent Dwayne Noble, have been stored in a closet at the school.
A 1999 Chevrolet van will also be available even though, according to Noble, it does not run.
The board approved a request from Middle School principal Brad Wion to have five bicycles declared surplus to be used for special awards to students. The bicycles were purchased through a grant some four years ago and were assembled by the HMS STEM students.
Anyone interested in purchasing the televisions and van or needing more information should contact the superintendent’s office.
In other board business, resignation letters were accepted from Tina Walters, Ronald Black and Logan Ashley.
Noble read a letter from the Creek Nation recognizing the HHS Knight Brigade for participation in the Harvest Festival Parade. Band director Alan Montgomery was singled out for his preparing students to be parade ready.
The letter from MCN Community Administrator Russell Wind said Montgomery deserved praise for his “time and determination he has put in with your students.”
He went on to say the parade that was held on a damp and cold day had more than 30 participants and the Knight Brigade, “lit up the parade with their lively music.”
Along with the letter, Wind included a $300 check for the band.
Noble pointed out a trophy in the shape of an electric line tower for being the tops in the PSO Peak Performance effort this past year. “We have been in the program for the past six years and have won two times.”
He said the walls on the Knight Center gymnasium have been repaired and painted. “We only have the floor remaining,” he said.
The school’s LED lighting program has started with workers setting up monitors on various lights in all of the school buildings. Noble said the replacement of the florescent lights with LED energy saving bulbs should start in a couple of weeks. The elementary school should be the first to receive the new lights.
Board members held a nearly two-hour executive session to evaluate Noble’s job performance and discuss hiring a person to work six hours in the cafeteria. At the end of the executive session, board members tabled the hiring of the cafeteria worker.
Brandon Brown told the board members the annual audit for the school year had no deficiencies. He said issues last year on purchase orders have been improved.
