Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

The school board of the Roswell Independent School District will discuss two resolutions to submit to the state school board association for it to consider in its agenda for the 2022 session of the New Mexico Legislature.

The board will meet at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the board room of the Administrative and Educational Services Complex, 300 N. Kentucky Ave. Masks and social distancing are encouraged. The meeting will be livestreamed on the district’s YouTube channel.

The resolutions were still being reviewed by the board’s attorney and not yet posted with the agenda Monday afternoon. One of the resolutions is titled “Local Autonomy” and the other “Emergency Substitute.”

Other items the board is scheduled to take action on include approving a $1,000 anonymous donation for activities at Roswell High School, approving out-of-state travel for the RHS band to the Denver City, Texas, Tumbleweed Classic Marching Festival on Oct. 2 and to New Orleans, Louisiana, in April.

The board will also consider approving a letter of support for the TRiO Upward Bound program at Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell.
