It was a quick meeting for the Clay Community School Board of Trustees first meeting of the year.

After unanimously approving Board President Ron Miller and Board Secretary Jennifer Kaelber to the Board of Finance, the board received a report on investments from Business Manager Mike Fowler.

"Investments are really products, like CDs in our case that we buy," he said. "It is not a report on all interest that we have. This is simply CDs we have purchased throughout the year."

The board voted unanimously to approve Fowler's report. He will deliver a more in depth report during the February meeting.

Interim Superintendent Kim Tucker, Transportation Director Frank Misner and Building and Grounds Director Tom Reberger were congratulated for their fast action on issuing the school cancellation and two-hour delays.

"On Tuesday morning, I thought you had hung yourself out a little bit because you were the first one," Miller said. "But you ended up looking very intelligent."

"And on that note, there was some very positive feedback from parents and teachers about the early notification," board member Tina Heffner added. "They appreciated that because it enabled them to plan."

In other news, the Linking Education to Adults, Adolescents and Preschoolers (LEAAP) Center received an anonymous $2,000 donation, which was not earmarked for any specific item.

"I recommend we accept the donation and thank the patron for the generous contribution," Tucker said.

The board voted unanimously to approve the implementation of the Creating Positive Relationships (CPR) program.

"It has been an outstanding program for our school corporation," Tucker said. "We have again been given the financial opportunity to participate in this. We have received positive feedback from parents who've had students in this program."

In other business during Thursday's meeting, the board:

* Voted the Northview High School and Clay City High School Future Farmers of America (FFA) to attend the National Farm Machinery Show Feb. 18, in Louisville, Ky.,

* Approved a recommendation by board member Amy Adams to compensate Tucker for the days spent pursuing her doctoral degree at Indiana State University due to the unusual circumstance of performing the duties of Interim Superintendent and Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum and Instruction, and

* OK'd a resolution for Interest Deposits, Transfer Appropriations, 2011 Transfer of Funds Certificate, resolution to Prepay Claims, resolution to Transfer from One Fund to Another.

The next meeting of the Clay Community School Board of Trustees will be at 7:30 p.m., Feb. 10, in the media center at North Clay Middle School.
