The Bradley County Board of Education on Tuesday discussed how to best make use of $287,000 in the Blue Springs Law and Ordinance Fund. Bradley Schools have until 2015 to make use of the money, which is designated for use in bringing Blue Springs Elementary and/or its feeder schools up to code.
The fund can also be used for expansion or new construction.
If this money is not used by December 2015, then it will be lost.
Vice Chairman Nicholas Lillios expressed that the board must be careful to find out where the greatest need is. Board member Chris Turner suggested that the board try to select the project or projects that would best maximize the funding available.
This will be further discussed at a future work session before going on the November board meeting agenda.
Board member Charlie Rose made the case to the board for a resolution in opposition to the Tennessee State Board of education's changes to teacher licensure requirements. This resolution will be up for a vote at the Thursday board meeting.
