On Mar. 4, the Fenton Area Public Schools Board of Education meeting commenced in the Administration Building. With the meeting being mostly centralized around the 2024 bond issue, topics also discussed pertained to March’s Reading Month, and plans for the upcoming school year.

Agenda item number nine allows citizens to address the board. FHS choir teacher Brad Wright spoke on his concerns relating to the FHS Ambassadors being unable to travel to AGS during school hours because of concerns that it would be disruptive to the educational environment. Wright argues that athletes are granted early dismissals often so one dismissal should not be allowed over the other.. 

Another topic covered at the meeting was the resolution to request the Board of Education’s approval of the bond sale officially. It is claimed that the first phase of the 2024 bond issue will be focused on the addition to AGS Middle School and air conditioning/air quality upgrades across the district. Towards the end of the meeting, more was discussed about the bond issue and what is planned for the summer in regards to construction and additional training for teachers.
