School Board continued from page 1 mittee to contact with Ban- ner Associates to assess the 1903 building in Ty- ler, the corner of the 1918 building in Tyler, the south wall of the 1994 building in Tyler and the northwest corner of the gymnasium in Russell. The committee had re- viewed the proposal from Banner Associates at its meeting in August. The proposal estimated the cost for the assessment at $4,800. In addition to Banner Associates, the committee had also recommended the purchase of a new fixed scoreboard for the Russell gym and a portable score- board for Ruthton. The school board ap- proved the recommenda- tions. School board member Peggy Dunblazier said she also wanted to see the district address the 1903 building, which she described as being in bad shape. The committee toured the building during the meeting and she said they were told not to go to the third floor out of con- cerns of potentially falling through the floor. Dunblazier said she be- lieves the issue needs to be addressed soon. The RTR School Board also heard first reading of its new policy guide. Houck said the school's attorney made recommen- dations due to data pri- vacy concerns related to the public forum, includ- ing limiting the time to 15 minutes instead of the cur- rent 30 minutes. Houck also said the at- torney recommended the school board members and administration not address any questions or comments during the pub- lic forum held prior to the meeting. School board member Doug Possail expressed concerns over the new policy recommendations. The RTR Policy Com- mittee will be meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. in Ruthton to discuss the new policy. Additional readings of the policy will need to be held before the board of- ficially votes on the chang- es.
