Daycare issue draws large crowd to School Bd. mtg.

RANDOLPH —  Randolph Public School board members met Feb. 20 with an estimated audience of several dozen community members.
The meeting was conducted in the commons area due to the large number of people attending to discuss the school daycare project.
“If the school does the daycare, it will be a learning center and it is going to be done right,’’ said Board Member Jim Scott.
Supt. Jeff Hoesing said the board is at an advantage with the ability to do this daycare project because the board has planned for it and built in funding in expectation of what the project might require. The school received a $2,000 donation from Pepsi.
“We have built up for unforeseen emergencies,’’ Hoesing said. “The main factor to consider will be how many infants and toddlers will be involved.’’
“I attended a state legislature meeting and listened to Gov. Ricketts,’’ audience member Dan Backer said. “He was hard-pressed at the meeting and talked about more school funding coming from income tax and other taxes.’’
