The Greenwood Leflore Consolidated School Board has adopted the school district’s new logo.
At Tuesday’s meeting, Dr. Mary Brown, the superintendent, unveiled the logo to both board members and interested citizens in attendance.
The logo, a shield bearing the district’s name over a red map of Leflore County, was made by combining two other logos. They were made by Caryn Jackson, a Leflore County Elementary School student, and Yvette Delarosa, a Greenwood Middle School student.
The school board also went into an approximately 30-minute executive session to discuss the district’s partial 2019-2020 classified salary scale.
Samantha Milton, the board’s vice president and secretary, made the motion to discuss the salary scale in executive session.
“There’s no names on here. Is there a reason we should go into executive session?” board member Randy Clark asked.
Kelvin Pulley, the school board’s attorney, responded, “The reason for going into executive session is that these salary scales ... may be attached to certain names later on. Just a precaution; I think it’s best to go into executive session so we won’t ruin anyone’s character or all of that.”
Board members Milton, Dr. Kalanya Moore, and Antwoine Williams voted in favor. Clark voted against executive session.
Board President Deirdre Mayes was absent from the meeting.
Once the meeting opened up, Williams, who presided over the meeting in Mayes’ absence, said the board amended the classified salary scale during its closed session. The board then approved the classified salary scale. Classified jobs are non-teaching positions.
The Greenwood and Leflore County school districts consolidate July 1.
