The Wauneta-Palisade School Board moved quickly through its regular board meeting Monday and is prepared for its annual budget hearing Tuesday, Sept. 16.

The board approved five action items, including raising substitute teacher pay from $95 to $100. The group also decided to take part in the North Star Negotiations Software program.

All negotiations between Nebraska schools and school boards have been inputted into the program and will make it possible to compare what other schools’ teachers are receiving. Superintendent Randy Geier expects the $950 investment will save the school’s bookkeeper time.

Geier gave the board details on two projects that have been completed in the past month. New carpet has been installed in the hallways. Geier said he’s received positive comments from teachers and students about how the carpet looks. He also said the carpet has decreased the noise level in the hallways.

The gym has a new look also with the installation of new wall mats under the east basketball hoop. Donated by Bronco Boosters, more mats will be installed after they come off backorder. The mats along the stage will be replaced and new mats will cover all the east wall. The old mats will be installed in the Palisade gym.

Removal of the diesel tank at the Palisade Attendance Center went off without a hitch, according to Principal Roger Reikofski. He added that the school year is off to a good start and the Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program has been working well.

The budget hearing will be held at the Wauneta Attendance Center on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 11 a.m. MT/12 p.m. CT.
