Woodward, Okla. — Woodward’s Board of Education members will consider filling a couple of open positions during the monthly meeting on Monday.

The board meets at 6 p.m. in the school administration building, 10th and Texas.

An executive session is scheduled to discuss hiring a Boomer Kids Club worker and a middle school custodian.

Votes on the 2 positions are scheduled after the board returns to open session.

The only other action item on the short agenda is consideration and voting on the school calendar for the 2013-2014 school year.

• approval of a middle school golf camp

• approval of naming Superintendent Tim Merchant as the school’s voting representative at the Northwestern Electric Cooperative annual meeting.
