The Saline Courier - - FRONT PAGE - By Sarah Perry [email protected]­ton­courier.com

The Bryant School Board is sched­uled to dis­cuss sev­eral items, in­clud­ing land deeds and site work at Park­way Ele­men­tary School, dur­ing a regular meet­ing to­day at Bryant Ju­nior High. The meet­ing will be­gin at 7 p.m.

More than a year ago, the Bryant School Dis­trict ap­plied for a per­mit through the Army Corp of En­gi­neers to drain a pond at Park­way Ele­men­tary School to add more green space for stu­dents to run and play.

Af­ter re­cently re­ceiv­ing approval of the per­mit, the board will dis­cuss a quote for this work at the school.

Red­stone Con­struc­tion has pro­vided a quote to the dis­trict of $184,500 to drain the pond and con­struct bas­ket­ball courts and green space.

The board will also dis­cuss deed­ing Henry Av­enue near Park­way Ele­men­tary School, along with land at Ash­ley Park, to the city of Bryant.

Ac­cord­ing to in­for­ma­tion in­cluded in the meet­ing agenda, city of­fi­cials dis­cov­ered that sev­eral lots that are part of Ash­ley Park are owned by the dis­trict. The land had been deeded to the dis­trict in 1962.

Since the dis­trict is not plan­ning to use the lots and the land has been main­tained for years by the city, board mem­bers will dis­cuss deed­ing the land in the park to the city.

Other items on the agenda in­clude:

•A fi­nan­cial re­port.

•12 trans­fer re­quests.

•The pur­chase of furniture for the Fine Arts Build­ing that is cur­rently un­der con­struc­tion at Bryant High School.

•A res­o­lu­tion in­volv­ing the 2020 school board elec­tion. Dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion is rec­om­mend­ing elec­tions take place on the date of the Pref­er­en­tial Pri­mary in even num­bered years and the third Tues­day in May in odd num­bered years.

•School im­prove­ment plans for each school in the dis­trict.

•Per­son­nel changes.

All meet­ings are open to the pub­lic and at­ten­dance is en­cour­aged.
