Photo by Mac Shadix The Buffalo School board plowed quickly through a limited agenda to go into a closed session to decide on personnel changes. With trustees Brandon Lack, Pat Bell and Bobby Fishbeck absent the board still had a quorum and entered their closed session in only 21 minutes.

Superintendent Lacy Freeman told the board that having three school buses that were less than three years old was greatly improving the maintenance situation for the district. He all related that they were parting out one older bus, considering that was the way to get the greatest value from it.

Freeman also reported that the bids for the Casey Ag Facility would be opened on Thursday, April 20 and that things seemed to be going well. He said that Nucor had given them an excellent bid on the basic steel building.

The Board renewed contracts with Region 6, which Freeman said saved the district by sharing certain costs with other districts. A contract with Interquest Canines of Tomball was also renewed. A single TASB Board Policy Update was approved, pertaining to the possibility of video surveillance in Special Ed. classrooms.

The board then retired to closed session to consider new teachers and to accept staff resignations.
