During a Bradley County Board of Education meeting, Nick Lillios was elected as the new chairman and Charlie Rose was elected vice chairman for the upcoming year.
Dianna Calfee was also elected as the Tennessee Legislative Network representative.
It was announced during the director of schools' report that Michigan Avenue Elementary School has been ranked among the top five in the state for achievement for the second time.
A motion also passed to go ahead and remove asbestos and clean the air while performing abatement and repairs in two art rooms at Bradley Central High.
It was pointed out that the asbestos would be disturbed after removing old tiles, so the air would have to be cleaned and filtered regardless.
It was stated it would be more cost effective in the long run to go ahead and take out the asbestos.
Another motion was made by board member Chris Turner to look into getting a new microphone and audio system for the meeting room. His motion was to have a proposal by the next meeting.
He said, "I've heard from several constituents that they cannot hear."
Another motion by Mr. Turner passed that entailed the board using eMeeting software for board meetings.
