Michael announced the meeting would focus upon a vote regarding support for the narrowed list of recommendations to create a report/statement for the December school board meeting.

None of the committee members supported eliminating the high school and converting the SMHS to elementary.

The question of the $100,000 cost for biomass fuel seemed a non-issue and negligible given the $10million price tag.

Meeting adjourned just after 6 pm.
