The Coventry Local Schools Board of Education held a regular meeting Nov. 20 and voted on numerous measures.

The board began the meeting by approving the October 2012 bills for about $717,329.

In addition, the board adopted a modification of an agreement the district has with Rea & Associates to add extended hours. The modification was needed so Rea & Associates could audit an additional federal program for fiscal year 2012, as required by the State Auditor’s Office, Treasurer Aaron Butts reported. He said the modification would cost an additional $2,450.

The board also accepted the following donations: $25 from The Charitable Giving Card Program of the Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee; sound system equipment valued at $1,207 from All Sports Boosters; $100 from Lyons Photography to the new AntiVirus Club (anti-bullying club) at Coventry Middle School; and $60 from Ayers Insurance to the AntiVirus Club.

Additionally during the meeting, the board:

• approved the disposal of obsolete items from the technology department, including several computers, a server and monitor;

• established the AntiVirus Club at the middle school;

• granted or reissued supplemental coaching contracts for the 2012-13 school year to Savannah Morrow, varsity assistant cheerleading coach for basketball; Aaron Rose, varsity assistant girls basketball coach; and Jason Wallace, ninth-grade head girls basketball coach;

• approved an agreement with the American Red Cross of Summit and Portage Counties to provide facilities to support individuals affected by disasters; and

• approved open enrollment and tuition contracts with Akron Public Schools; Jackson, Springfield, Manchester and Green local school districts; and Barberton and Norton city school districts to provide special-education services to handicapped students for the 2012-13 school year.

In other district news, the ninth annual Breakfast With Santa and Coventry Christmas Carnival will take place Dec. 1 from 8 a.m. to noon at Coventry High School, 3089 Manchester Road. The cost is $5 for adults and $3 for children 12 and younger. Activities will include photos with Santa, raffle baskets, the Jingle Bell Cake Walk, carnival games and face painting.
