The Owen County School Board met Monday and received a report from Ron Murrel, the architect responsible for the new middle school. He reported the plans for the school are continuing without problems, and he is finalizing the plans for the exterior of the school. They will also be deciding the materials and colors for the exterior walls.

The board also received the results of the 2008 audit. Bernadette Smith, CPA with the Charles T. Mitchell Co., said the audit went smoothly and they did not find any problems.

The board had a first reading of the hazing and bullying policy. The policy requires students to speak and behave in a civil manner toward students, staff and visitors to the school. The policy includes all online and electronic communication.
