The Miami Trace Board of Education is scheduled to discuss the district’s 2016 graduation during Monday’s regular board meeting.

Miami Trace Superintendent David Lewis will recommend that the list of students as 2016 graduates be approved as presented, pending the successful completion of their coursework. This year’s graduation is set for Sunday, May 29 at 2 p.m. at the high school.

The graduation guidelines will also be up for board approval.

In other business:

– Lewis will recommend that the board enter into an agreement with the Miami Trace Youth Football Program, granting them use of the football stadium for games on Aug. 21, Sept. 4, Sept. 18 and Oct. 2.

– Treasurer Debbie Black will recommend that the board approve its re-enrollment in the 2017 Ohio SchoolComp program, sponsored by both the Ohio Association of School Business Officials and the Ohio School Board Association. This program includes both workers’ compensation and unemployment compensation claims management services. Black will also recommend renewal of a workers’ compensation service agreement with CompManagement, third-party administrator for this program at an annual fee of $2,960 for the 2017 plan year.

– Black is also expected to recommend board approval of three educational grants from the Tanger Outlet, including $1,094.95 for Miami Trace Elementary School, $2,462 for the Miami Trace Middle School science department, and $500 for Mrs. Bennett’s classroom in the middle school.

– Also for the board’s approval will be the sale of the former Eber school property in the amount of $16,000.

The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the board office on Monday.
