Court okays grant for equipment

The Ochiltree County Commissioners’ Court met on Tuesday morning at the county courthouse.

Among other items on the agenda, the commissioners gave their approval for Constable Dwain Read to apply for a grant to purchase computers and equipment for patrol vehicles.

The funding for the new equipment would come entirely from the grant; there would be no need for matching funds from the county.

The commissioners also approved a new sergeant position for the county jail. A jailer currently employed by the county will be promoted to the new position.

School board hires teachers, revises 2020-21 calendar

The Perryton School Board hired several teachers, discussed summer school and changes to the district’s 2020-21 calendar at its meeting, via Zoom, Tuesday evening.

Superintendent James Mireles told the board that the district calendar committee had met to vote on a revised calendar for next year.

He explained that, after talking with other area superintendents, it was recommended to add some days to the beginning of the school year. The proposed calendar set the first day of school on Aug. 10, instead of Aug. 17, with teachers returning Aug. 3, instead of Aug. 5. The revised calendar was approved.

Mireles also updated the board on summer school plans. It will begin on some campuses with distance learning June 1, and on June 8 in-person where needed for selected students. Credit recovery for PHS and Ludi Pena Martin AEC students will begin June 8 at the AEC.
