Greenwood School District 50 approved board committees Monday evening to include new board member Brad Thompson.
In May, Thompson publicized his concerns about the lack of functioning board committees. Board Chairman Shell Dula conceded that although the various board committees existed, they did not meet individually, essentially making them defunct.

Board policy states committees are the most effective way of conducting business.
The committees are as follows:
n Building/Facilities: Tony Bowers, chair; Thompson; Tom Miller; Claude Wright.
n Curriculum: LeVerne Fuller, chair, Ken Cobb, Lee Vartianian, James Williams.
n Finance/Personnel: Wright, chair; Cobb; Miller; Thompson.
n Policy Committee: Williams, chair; Bowers; Fuller; Vartanian.
