Slaton Independent School District Trustees hosted a regular meeting at 7 p.m. on July 16 to discuss budgets, the career center and students going back to school in the fall.
They approved previous meeting minutes from June 9, reviewed expenditure checks, allowed for public comment, which no one spoke during and considered the agenda approved as presented.
Financial reports were also discussed and Trustee Justin Martin said collections have been going well, especially considering the current economic climate.
Jim Taliaferro and Matt Daniels provided information on the career center and said it is coming along well and nearing completion.
Sanitization was another point of interest; buses will be deep-cleaned weekly and sanitized daily, and students will be able to wipe down their own desks with disinfectant from spray bottles regularly.
An anonymous survey was conducted about two weeks ago concerning parent feelings toward sending their children back to school and members discussed top concerns.
