The Macon County Board of Education met this morning, September 29, 2016, to discuss changes to board policies. The board met in closed session for about 9 minutes and the open portion of the meeting lasted less than 5 minutes. The video of the open portion of the meeting is embedded below for you to watch.
A brief summary as to why this meeting was necessary: the General Assembly passed a requirement at the end of the 2016 session that requires each district to adopt a specific policy on handling change orders in construction contracts. This is required to be done by October 1.

• 9130 - Supervision of COnstruction Contracts
