Some of the more noteworthy agenda items that were passed was the hiring of Brain Appleton ( Bogota High School Class of 2005) as the new head football coach for Varsity Football. He replaces Kevin Bayani who step down earlier this year. Another was to approve the payment for the use of an Officer of the Bogota Police Dept who was use as an guard at the door to the High School during the last week of February. When this item was passed Superintend Dr. Vincent Varcadipane again expressed his opinion that it would be in the best interest for the District to have a full time armed security guard for the school. He also continued to talked about the integration of  the security system now being installed in the Bogota Government properties with those currently in the Public Schools. The Board is hoping to have a report  from their Technology Supervision and the Bogota police Chief at the next Board meeting.
