The Eastern Pulaski School Board learned that the official Average Daily Membership student count was 1,233. That is an increase of 43 students to the corporation. The board was happy to hear that statistic as state funding follows the student and the corporation will be getting some extra operating funds this year.
The board also learned that a satellite health clinic will begin Oct. 29 where all of the employees participating in the corporation’s insurance will be able to have lab work done when the health officials visit the schools. The staff will be able to have blood work done, get flu shots and receive more services when the satellite health clinic arrives at the corporation on Oct. 29. Services will be available from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET.
The high school guidance counselor reported to the board that of the 85 students who graduated in the class of 2013, 72 percent of the students went onto higher education, and only one percent are unemployed. Half of the students chose Purdue as their college of choice.
