Stanberry Board Open To Idea Of Stanberry/King City Wrestling Arrangement

Stanberry School board members favored the idea of a 1-year agreement which would allow wrestlers from the King City School District to participate in the sport with Stanberry. The idea was presented before the board at their October meeting. The King City School District would handle the financial requirements. One stipulation would require that all wrestlers compete under the Stanberry name. It would be a 1-year agreement which could be revisited in the future. There will be now be further discussions regarding such an arrangement.

Stanberry’s board approved their finalized budget for the 2022-23 school year. The budget includes a deficit of a little over $191,000 due to a fund transfer to cover the costs of the building projects which had been started in previous years. The district’s unrestricted fund balance is a little over 29 percent.

Board members approved a proposal from Olshan Foundation to repair a foundation problem at the high school which has developed cracks in the walls and a shift of the foundation. The issue has been monitored in previous years, but is becoming worse. The repair will be done during the district’s Winter Break so that no instruction time will be interrupted.

Candidate filing for potential Stanberry school board candidates will take place between December 7th and December 28th. There will be 3 seats up for election on the Stanberry school board.

The Hawthorne Foundation has donated $29,500 to support scholarships for Stanberry students to further their post-secondary education.
