Sam Cogdill, on behalf of the Dunlap Community Development Corporation, spoke to the board to consider a proposal on sharing an employee with DCDC, the city and the school.

Chaise Mefferd, Campus Care Director, addressed the board regarding research she had done for campus care. We have the lowest rates around and is considering an increase.
