The Sedalia #200 School Board met Monday evening in the Dr. Harriet Wolfe Media Center, at Smith-Cotton High School.

The meeting began with a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new additions to the high school, with a tour that followed. The new additions include a space, which will be used as the new Dr. Harriet Wolfe Media Center. The new media center includes space for 2 new classrooms that can be used for dual credit courses. New books and bookshelves, along with a new circulation desk and a new office are also part of the new media center.

The current library will be turned into a student commons area, and can be used for a variety of activities and meetings.

The tour then moved downstairs, to an area that will be used as a new "garage" and workspace for Team Scream.

Team Scream can use the area for robotics building and education.

Other new additions include restrooms and an auxiliary gym that is already in use.

The new additions are part of a $4.7 million project. The money was raised through donations and internal financing from the school district. According to Board President, Dr. Jeffrey Sharp, “there was no tax increase to the patrons for these projects.”

The Sedalia 200 School Board also approved updates to board policy and the hiring of a new Sedalia School District Driver.
