The Chillicothe R-2 School Board has scheduled a special meeting to take action on the telecommunications agreement with Windjammer Communications.  No action was schedule during Tuesday’s meeting, so the board has decided to review the contract Thursday at 7:30. a.m.  The district is operating on an11 year-old contract, that expired in 2003.  The new agreement would continue the district’s fiber optic service, but would be double the cost for the first year and increase the amount by 3% in the two years thereafter.

The special session includes further discussion of the extra duty pay reduction that was not acted upon during Tuesday’s meeting.  The recommended cut would reduce the overall extra pay by about $20,000 for teachers with certain extracurricular activities.
