Libby School Board on Tuesday approved partial demolition of the Asa Wood building and to present a contract to Superintendent Kirby Maki for the 2012-’13 school year.

The board approved renovations to portions of the Asa Wood building, including the West Wing and the Library. However, Maki will have to meet with the EPA soon to discuss the extent of demolition. Also, the district will inquire about disposal fees for debris. Maki will ask the county to waive fees for the debris to make the project more cost-effective.

The Board presented a contract for the superintendent position for the next school year. Maki has been asked to serve as the superintendent for the upcoming year, the board will vote again at next month’s meeting.
