A new head softball coach and high school choir director were among the appointments approved by the Dumas Independent School District Board of Trustees at Monday night's meeting.

In all, school board members approved 20 appointments.

The board also heard about resignations and retirements.

Earlier in the meeting, board members heard a request from Michelle Clark and representatives of Hillcrest Elementary School Student Council. The group was requesting board permission to send money from their activity account to Moore, Okla. While the board appreciated the willingness of the students to help those affected by the recent tornadoes, they were informed that a policy in place requires all funds raised by student organizations to be used for the benefit of the students. Therefore, the funds can not be sent to Oklahoma.
