Vernon Parish School Board met at 10:00 a.m. Thursday, August 4, 2022, with members Doug Brandon, David Detz, Shad Stewart and Lisa Thompson absent.

The Board voted to approve the Edmentum Program Curriculum for the 2022-2023 School Year, and to accept a bid of $72,000 for a 2017 Activity bus for Hicks High School.

The Board was awarded the Cenergistic Energy Best in Class Award for their sustainability efforts since the program began in 2016. Energy use has been reduced by 37%, and financial savings have been about $4.4 million. This is an industry standard program and is recognized by the EPA.
