The Board approved a motion for the President to execute a contract with Strategic Demographics, LLC to provide reapportionment and redistricting services to the Vernon Parish School Board. Redistricting is a result of the 2020 Census.

Motions were approved to accept employee retirements, budget amendments related to personnel changes, and to pay claims.

The Board approved advertising for a nonpromotional assistant principal at Pickering and approved a performance contract for the Hornbeck High School Assistant Principal.

Col. Samuel Smith, Garrison Commander at Fort Polk addressed the Board:

He was able to visit Pickering, Leesville Middle School, and High School, Vernon Middle School and Parkway Elementary last week.

The DOD re-naming committee was delayed by Hurricane Ida, but is expected to arrive sometime near the end of the month.

Fort Polk is in the final stages of rolling out the education narrative to provide incoming families with information on local schools, as well as the DODEA Virtual High School, which would allow military dependents to take online classes that are not offered locally.
