The board will meet at 7 p.m. Tuesday at West Groves Education Center, 5840 W. Jefferson, in Groves.

The elementary school bond projects approved by voters in 2007 are currently the only ones which have been closed out, or completed, according to information fro the district. Monies remaining from those projects and bond fees that haven’t been allocated to any projects totals about $800,000.

• Consider approval of an insurance proposal on property coverage for a one-year period beginning March 30.
