The Fulton Board of Education will consider approving an agreement today to implement a Jobs for America's Graduates high school and middle school program for 2020.

The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Fulton High School.

The program promotes employment skills and work-based learning and works to ensure students stay in school. It is funded by federal and state funds, corporate contributions and contributions from participating schools.

If approved by the board, the agreement will begin with the 2020-21 school year.

In other business, the board will consider adopting policy updates from the Missouri School Boards' Association to clarify language and meet legal requirements.

The board is also set to discuss a request for qualifications for architectural and engineering services in preparation for projects included in the $27.5 million bond issue that will appear before voters in April. If passed, the district is planning to construct 12 kindergarten classrooms, eight middle school classrooms and a high school competition gymnasium.

The district plans to issue the request Thursday. Interested firms will have until Feb. 11 to submit proposals.
