Bulletin Staff Report

Members of the board of trustees of the Early Independent School District will tour projects currently under construction during a called meeting this afternoon.

The school district has posted an agenda for the tour, which will begin at 5 p.m. at the high school office of the school district, 115 Sudderth Dr.

The tour will take trustees and other school officials to the construction sites where additions and renovations are under way at the high school, the new football stadium and then the new elementary school building.

Trustees will convene again later in the week to consider a proposed maintenance and operation tax rate, as well as an interest and sinking fund tax rate for the coming year. That meeting will be held at 8 p.m. Thursday in the elementary library of the school district, 965 Early Blvd.

The board will also discuss a date for a called board meeting at which it will approve the 2008-09 budget and tax rate, according to the agenda.

The board may also enter a closed session to consider personnel matters involving resignations, new hires and other personnel matters permitted under state law. Any action will be taken after the board returns to open meeting. Otherwise, meetings are open to the public.
