The Wellston City Schools Board of Education met in special session recently, chiefly to adopt the district’s school reopening plan for the 2020-21 school year.

Following are the other items of business taken into consideration during the Tuesday evening, July 28 meeting:

* The Board approved the Athletic Handbook for Wellston City Schools. Superintendent Karen Boch explained the only changes included in this version of the handbook were the addition of a soccer program and guidelines set forth regarding the issuance of honorary varsity letters.

* The Student/Parent Handbook was approved. Boch stated an addendum was added regarding COVID-19 protocols. She said this was done so that once the virus is no longer an issue, the addendum could simply be removed.

* The Board approved the creation of an additional supplemental position for varsity boys’ golf, though no one was approved for hire in said position.

The next meeting of the Wellston City Schools Board of Education is set for Aug. 10 at 7 p.m.
