The Grady County Board of Education typically meets on the second Tuesday of each month, but not this month.
The board voted last month to reschedule its July meeting to Tuesday, July 16 beginning at 5 p.m. at the VanLandingham Center, 203 North Broad St.
All meetings of the board are open to the public.
The board held its called meeting last Thursday for whole board training and to address several items of business.
The board voted unanimously to spend up to $150,000 for site work for the proposed new Navy ROTC building to be constructed on the campus of Cairo High School. Southern Contractors of Cairo has been awarded the contract for the job.
The board members also agreed to pay up to $32,000 for a new roof for the Whigham School cafeteria. Bainbridge Roofing is the contractor for the project.
