North Adams Community Schools officials have struck a tentative agreement that would transfer ownership of the former Monmouth Elementary School property to a regional service center operated under the auspices of the Indiana Department of Education. As part of the agreement approved Tuesday evening by the North Adams board of education, baseball diamonds and related facilities, along with a cemetery at the site, would become the property of Root Township.
The new Adams Central school board member is the old Adams Central school board member.
Steve Bailey, who retired from the board just two years ago after serving for 20 years, was renamed to the board at Tuesday night's board meeting on a 4-2 vote.
Bailey, who is president of the Decatur branch of First Merchants Bank, was supported by board president John Sipe and members Brian Tonner, Wes Kuntzman, and Steve Maller.
