Park Hill School District’s Board of Education met Thursday evening, Jan. 10.

From a policy standpoint, the highlights of their agenda were:

  • Voting unanimously to approve a resolution authorizing refinancing more than $13 million in existing school bond debt in order to save almost a million dollars in interest for the district.
  • Voting unanimously to approve new English and math curricula designed to conform with the new national Common Core Standards, which Missouri adopted and are being phased in starting this year.
  • Voting unanimously to revise district policies on a list of topics such as “Audits,” “School Board Elections” and “Board Committees/Advisory Committees to the Board.”
