More discussion topics • Roberts asked trustees to volunteer to serve on a recommendation committee to decide if and/or how to proceed with random drug testing. Two trustees can serve on the committee so there won't be a BCSC quorum. • BCSC was given $2,000 from the Shopko Help us Give Back Campaign. The superintendent said, "Shopko has been a good friend in our community We will put that to good use." • Indiana State Department of Health leaders recommended that Roberts discuss school health issues with Hoosier legislators in Washington, D.C., March 31-April 1. He will do that at no cost to BCSC. • Because BCSC lost some students between the fall and spring count days, "that does change the amount of money coming into our coffers" from the state, Roberts reported. The school district was educating 2,058 students (kindergartners counted as half) as of Feb. 3, 29.5 students less than in the fall. Thirteen students graduated, five students returned to their home countries, eight chose to be homeschooled and two students dropped out or were expelled. • Transportation workers who drive regular bus routes, to and from Southeastern Career Center and extracurricularly and deliver mail between buildings received 2.5 percent increases to their daily rates. • The Rev. David Johnston of St. John United Church of Christ, Huntersville, asked trustees to consider re-instituting the end-of-the-school-year Parade of Honors, which spotlighted students who excel in various categories. He recalled when his three children attended those ceremonies, "they'd come home and talk about" outstanding students. "That gave them an added incentive to work hard."
