The Marlow schools are closer to beginning construction of the new elementary school.
“We’re going to be advertising bids soon and we may have a special meeting to vote on the bids within the next 30 days,” Marlow Superintendent George Coffman said at the Marlow School Board meeting Monday night. “I’m ready to get started. People at church are asking me when are we going to start.”
Once bidding is done, the school should begin construction, according to Coffman.
Coffman also stated repairs from the July hailstorm is almost complete as the district is now down to repairing heating and air conditioning units.
The board also heard from site principals who briefed the board on a full slew of activities for the month.
The elementary and middle schools will have a Veteran’s Day program on Friday at 9 a.m. at the new gym. The high school will observe Veteran’s Day with a program on Monday.
Those residents who purchased cookie dough as part of the Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) can expect it to be delivered soon as the pick-up was this week. The fundraiser raised more than $18,000.
Marlow Middle School principal Ross Ridge reported 8th grade FFA members Devin Crawford, Ben Ivory, Preston Nunley, Miles Ellis, Colton Renfro, and J.D. Howard qualified for the Junior Career Development Meat Judging Contest in Stillwater.
The board also approved a resolution for an election to be held to vote to
elect a board member for position three which is currently held by Robert Greer. The election will take place on Feb. 12, 2013. A run-off election, if necessary,
would be held on April 2, 2013.
In other business, the board:
  • Accepted the resignation of special education teacher aide Camilla Ludvicek
  • Hired Martha Kiler as a substitute teacher
  • Approved and disapproved the contracts of certifi ed/non-certified employees for the 2012-13 school year.
