  Superintendent Paul Spaventa thanked the Board of Education (BOE) for their help with the Class of 2008 graduation during the September meeting.

  He said he appreciated the hard work and service of the School Board members.

  In other business, the BOE discussed possibly allowing the seniors at Gloucester City High School to be in charge of finance functions.

  Also, members approved all field trips for the Gloucester City School District.

  The School Board approved new hires, including teachers, special education teachers, secretaries, and security officers.

  And, due to how old some of the textbooks are, the Board approved the purchase of new textbooks to replace them.

The Board said okay to a fundraiser for the senior class, which happens every year -- selling cookies after school hours.

  The next BOE meeting will be Tuesday, October 14, in the High School Media Center.
