     “We are very excited about this additional grant money.” stated Dr. Reed.
     The board approved Diana Armstrong-Apple to remain as President, Jason Pepmeier as Vice President and Benjamin Bowling as Secretary.
     All minutes and claims were approved with all members present.
     Kim Thurston reported the financial report to the board.
     According to Thurston the current tax billing is not available yet and the school may need to borrow $500,000 from the general fund, but are expected to collect more than that amount.
     Due to so many legislative changes the 2009 budget will be very high.
     “We want to be high, the state will usually cut us and will never increase our budget.” stated Dr. Reed.

??    For the 2008-2009 school year, Scottsburg High School will be implementing a program called Career Clusters.
    Career Clusters involves community volunteers in several different career sectors.
    According to Jennifer Mills, who is coordinating Career Clusters, there has been a wonderful response rate to volunteers for this program already, but there are a few key career clusters that still need  representation from the local community to fully engage and match students’ selected interests.
    Volunteers are still needed to cover students who are interested in participating in clusters devoted to agriculture, veterinary science, music, design, medical doctor, nursing, dentist, pharmacy, science, and engineering.
