Amite County School District trustees handled relatively routine business during October’s monthly meeting.

Trustees authorized Superintendent Don Cuevas to accept a bid for cafeteria equipment without re-advertising, as the previous advertisement yielded no bids.

The needed equipment includes new tables, a convection oven and a mixer.

In other business, trustees:

• Approved a $500 donation from Trustmark Bank to Amite County Elementary School for supplies.

• Approved fundraisers held by Amite County High School football and basketball teams.

• Hired full-time bus driver Johnny Ball and teaching assistant Alicia Williams Faust.

• Approved the transfer of two students, one to McComb School District and one to Lincoln County.

• Agreed to advertise for bids for the five-year hunting and fishing lease on 16th Section land.

• Disposed of cafeteria tables, a laptop and two old TVs.

• Approved the 2020-21 drop-out prevention plan, which had no major changes from last year’s, and the 2020-21 test security plan, setting the guidelines for state testing.

• Discussed the possible need to grant owners of property adjacent to the school’s 16th Section land the right to cross the school property.
