The Dublin ISD board of trustees handed out a number of honors Monday during the board's monthly meeting.
Those honored include the Dandi-Lions Drill Team, who competed in several competitions recently; the powerlifting team and their boys and girls state qualifiers; and extracurricular scholars, athletic scholars and academic honorees from both sides of the secondary campus.
"We are honored and proud to have so many talented students to honor during this month's meeting," Superintendent Dr. Rodney Schneider said. "These students exemplify what it means to be a Dublin Lion and we are pleased to recognize them."
Schneider also gave a report on the possibility of a daycare program in the district.
The district has been looking into the possibility of starting a daycare facility for employees and students. However, at the last meeting, the board approved the rental of the old junior high building to Kids' Korner Daycare in Dublin. Schneider said he is looking into a deal with the company to take in the district's children and save the district from creating its own daycare.
The city and the district are also looking into the possibility of the city buying the weight room and locker rooms at the former junior high campus on Camden. Schneider said talks are in the beginning stages, and he has not gotten an appraisal on the property or taken any major steps toward a purchase.
"We're growing here at the city of Dublin and with that growth comes the need for more building space," said City Administrator Nancy Wooldridge. "At this time nothing is set in stone. I'd like to see the city be able to move some of our offices over there, but right now it's just a thought, a future plan if you will."
