The board heard from two other visitors Tuesday: Aaron Ellison, who asked board members to consider offering the county’s preschool special education program, formerly called PALS, at both Clanton Elementary and Jemison Elementary instead of only CES; and Joselyn Quinn, a concerned citizen who said the number of black educators and administrators is dropping and asked the board to review hiring practices within the school system.

The board awarded bids on fuel to Wilson Oil Company and on welding supplies to Airgas of Selma, as well as Child Nutrition Program bids on fresh produce, small wares and mini split A/C heat pumps.

In other business, the board approved 26 new employees and eight employee resignations at its meeting Tuesday.
