In old business:  The board discussed where the district stands currently on the bus repairs – one needing a new wiring harness and the other needing a transmission.
In new business:   Matthew James, auditor, reviewed the 2012-2013 audit with the board.  The revenues and expenditures were in line with the last couple of years and holding steady.  There were no major findings in the audit.  The board amended the 2013-2014 budget to include the Missouri Foundation Health Grant and the Missouri Highlands Grant revenue and expenses.
