The North Shelby Board of Education met Wednesday, July 20, 2022, at 6 p.m. All board members were present except Amy Presson.
Board President Scot Shively called the meeting to order.
Athletic Director Scott Gaines spoke about the North Shelby athletics and academic achievements. Gaines informed the board the batting cage needed some serious attention with holes in the netting.
Gaines discussed the North Shelby’s Hudl Focus subscription. The school currently paid $3,400 annually. Hudl is a company based in Lincoln, Neb., providing tools for coaches and athletes to review game footage and improve team play.
Gaines told the board he felt it would be beneficial to not only the school, but the community. The upgraded subscription would include cameras being mounted in the high school gymnasium and press box on the football field.
The cameras are stationery and would capture all the action as games or events happen, hands free. This will allow livestreams of not only games, but events that take place in the gym on out of the football field.
With discussion, the board voted to purchase Hudl Focus, with a cost of $8,700 annually.
Gaines brought to the board’s attention the numbers in junior high girls’ basketball and softball. With the low number of junior high players, it wouldn’t be possible for them to have their sports programs.
A motion was made to allow sixth grades to play junior high sports on an “as needed basis” with need being determined by administration.
Tinna Croy provided the board with the 2021 Aggregate Valuation for Shelby and Macon counties. There are several maintenance projects in the works and will be completed before school starts.
