The superintendent gave the board a copy of Mayor Tomeka Butler’s letter requesting the board donate two old 25 second clocks and score board to the City of Eudora to place on the City’s football field. The items will be used for sole purpose of school children (Pee Wee football, etc.). A motion was made by Mr. Livingston and seconded by Ms. Griffin to donate the old scoreboard and delay-of-game timers to the City of Eudora for the sole purpose to use on the youth football field. The District was unable to sell the scoreboard and timer due to age and availability of required repair parts and no possible value if they were sold for scrap (see attached letter from Rainey Electronics, Inc.). The motion carried.
