Steve Holt with Alliance also explained the progress to the board, as drywall work continues in the office and classroom areas, as well as most glass is in place.

The board also approved the low bid  for classroom, office, library and bandroom furnishings.  Architect Steve Sherman brought 4 change orders before the board for approval.  The board approved 3 and denied a $10,000 change order to install a block wall over an existing wall to prevent leaking.  After discussion between board members, consultant Charles Campbell, and Randy Wilkinson, it was established that wall had not leaked in the 46 years it’s been in place, so a protective wall would not be necessary.

The board heard first reading of a revised fundraising policy.  This was necessitated after the approval last month of a  policy to allow individual schools to apply for a gaming license.  Superintendent Sean Howard explains the revisions:

The district will once again provide partial funding of $200 per student for participant fees for the 2012 Governor’s Cup Middle grades and high school summer camps.  Last year 20 students attended. 

The board also heard tests score results and concerns from South Green Principal Chad Muhlencamp, and they approved the comprehensive district improvement plan and the revised district staffing plan as presented by Sharon Ritter, district assessment coordinator.
