New Business

An estimate to replace lockers at the high school was presented.  The first estimate is for $17,560.51 for recessed lockers in the senior hallway.  A second estimate was for free standing lockers in the 1963 addition for $15,912.21.  The shipping would be about $800.00.  They could install in June and then we pay in July. 

 

Geo reported the Windsor City Council was probably not interested in helping the school with a marquee sign to put out on the highway.  It is estimated to be around $23,000.00.  If the school board wishes to continue exploring this possibility of a marquee sign it would probably have to be done on our own.  Board members requested information to be emailed to them.

Mr. Van Hoveln shared the following:

  • Congratulations to John Welsh for being selected as student of the month. 
  • Rough estimates on a trophy case for the new gym lobby are in the area of 5-7 thousand depending on the size we choose to purchase.  To give reference a 4x6 runs around $2,000.  I would recommend at a minimum 2 of the 4x6 cases with the possibility of purchasing one next year and one the following to help with the budget. 
  • At the end of the month I will be meeting with all curriculum areas to continue to align each content area with the state standards.  We have been working on this for fours years and are near completion but we will continue to meet to see that we keep up with the demands of high stake testing.
