The Meridian School Board passed a plan to aggressively recruit quality personnel.
The recruitment plan calls for active recruiting at all the state's colleges and universities and features innovative incentives.
"We're asking dealerships, car dealerships, to maybe give discounts to them if they would come to Meridian to work in our district," said Robert Markham. "We've asked real estate agents if they would help them find housing and just to sell our city and our schools."
The board also amended its budget during the meeting.
