The central office of Cabool R-IV School District is being relocated to Main Street to allow for more classroom space.
The office of the superintendent and bookkeeping staff is presently located at Cabool Middle School on Rogers Avenue. Cabool Board of Education approved relocating the office to 725 Main, at the corner with Highway 181/Peabody Avenue, during the board’s June 25 meeting. The district will pay $500 per month rent for the space that formerly housed an accounting business.
Dr. Karl Janson, school superintendent, said the central office will move during July to allow time to convert the office area to classroom space that will be used for Title reading and math classes. He said the school district is adding the reading and math classes to help students who struggle with those subjects. The programs are paid for through federal funds.
Vince McKee, who had been teaching fifth and sixth grade language arts, will teach Title math and Amber Dotson, who taught second grade, will teach reading. Nichole Johnson, who had been teaching fourth grade, will teach fifth and sixth grade language arts this year, and former first grade teacher Sarah Middleton is moving into the second grade teaching position.
