Ballard School Board Meeting Highlights 1.12.21
January Board Highlights
The Board met Monday night. Among the actions were an extension of Family First Coronavirus Relief Act leave for employees through March 31. This is a voluntary extension of the leave permitted by reauthorization of FFCRA and is the maximum permitted under law. We certainly recognize the challenges of the pandemic and want to support our valuable staff to the extent possible.
The Board also accepted the most favorable bid for refinancing existing debt on two prior issuances. This will save the district thousands of dollars in annual interest expense in taking advantage of favorable interest rates. We will continue to seek opportunities to save interest expense in the weeks to come with otherable callable bonds.
Continue to stay safe with decisions outside of school to increase the likelihood of staying in school! We look forward to seeing you soon. GO BOMBERS!
