The board recently moved Central Office staff to the former Allen Central High School in Eastern, and during the move, officials uncovered numerous boxes of old financial records that had been stored.
At a Dec. 16 meeting, board members approved an agreement with SHRED-ALL Documents of Pikeville to provide a “secure cleanout services” of these documents off-site at a AAA NAID Certified security plant.

The cost of the service will be determined after the documents are collected for destruction.
