The resignation of Great Bend High School instructor/coach Chris Battin is on the agenda for the next Great Bend USD 428 Board of Education meeting, set for noon Thursday, April 28, at Riley Elementary School. Battin teaches marketing and is the boys varsity basketball team coach.
Also on the agenda for the luncheon meeting is a request from Lincoln Elementary School Principal Misty Straub to submit a grant application for 50-50 funding of six 6-foot benches for the school grounds. If the grant from Champlin Tree Recycling Inc. of Concordia is awarded, the Lincoln Parent Teacher Organization will pay the remaining 50 percent of the $1,614 total.
Riley School Principal JoAnn Blevins and other staff members will share information regarding the academic programs and the school improvement efforts.
