The Oskaloosa School Board met last night. A topic that saw significant discussion was the board’s decision to enter into an agreement with the Donovan Group, a communications firm specializing in education. Superintendent Mike Fisher initially recommended the group to outsource various aspects of the district’s PR, and explained why he saw the agreement as beneficial.
The agreement will cost the district $2,500 a month for full access to the firm’s services and is up for renewal annually, though the district can back out at the conclusion of any month of its duration.
The Oskaloosa School Board’s next regular meeting is scheduled for September 13.
