Last night, the Northeast Dubois school board held their monthly meeting.

One of the main items on the agenda was the report on pension bonds sales. Northeast Dubois was able to save their taxpayers two hundred and seventy thousand dollars over the next twelve years.

Bill Hochgesang, superintendant of Northeast Dubois School Corporation says the corporation will be asking for less money in the coming years for pension bonds:

Another key topic discussed last night at the meeting was the high number of retiring teachers at Northeast Dubois, and in effect, the high number of teachers to be hired for the fall semester.

Five new teachers were approved at the meeting, two of those for the high school and the other three for the elementary school. The hiring process was lengthy, two months in total, with many applications for the principals to review.

For the high school, Brian Dodd will be the new business teacher and Jesse Rosborough will be the new science teacher.

Angela Baker, Beth Cave, and Mindy Sendelweck will be new teachers for Dubois Elementary.
