Smith-Green Community Schools Business Manager Todd Fleetwood presented the 2012 Capital Projects Fund (CPF) Projects to the School Board for approval at Monday evening’s meeting.
According to Fleetwood, priority has been assigned to all projects and a certain amount has been budgeted for each project based on estimates. A quote will be obtained for each project to help determine if the project fits within the budget. Most projects will be completed during the summer to reduce the distraction for student learning, according to Fleetwood.
The Board unanimously approved the 2012 CPF Project as presented using only priority of projects and not exceeding the dollar amounts as stated: Technology--$147,978.95; Building Acquisition and Improvements--$113,709.50; and Mobile/Fixed Equipment--$87,279.64.
Fleetwood said a few projects include bleacher repairs in all three gymnasiums and the football bleachers, gym floor refinishing in the middle school and high school, removal of six courtyard trees, carpet, doors, water heaters and outside fencing.
In other Board news:
A group of volunteers constructed the gazebo in Eagle Garden last Saturday. The gazebo will be dedicated in a public ceremony on Thursday, May 17 at 6:30 p.m.
CJSHS Principal Austin Couch presented eighth grade student Molly Green as the “Spotlight on Success” for her continued success as a student, both in academics and extra-curricular activities. Molly currently has an 11.5 GPA and has all A’s while taking Biology and Algebra as an 8th grader. Mr. Strayer shared, “Molly is a dedicated student; she works hard academically and is willing to help other students succeed. Molly leads by example, a positive role model for other students and an excellent representative for our school and community.”
The Board approved the contractual agreement between Northeast Indiana Innovation Center, Inc. and SGCS to conduct an environmental assessment of the district by Dr. Daryl Yost. The purpose of the study is to determine the strengths and weaknesses of the district. According to Superintendent Steve Darnell, “the challenges that face education today are great. We want to assure we are positioned to move forward in the most positive light for success for our students. Thoughts and ideas from staff are important to make that happen.”
The Board approved $500 in funding for the Destination ImagiNation team’s trip to the Global Competition in Knoxville, Tenn. The cost for each student to attend the competition is almost $700, so the DI team will conduct several fundraisers to raise the necessary funds.
The Board approved a standard form of agreement for construction purposes between SGCS and Moake Park Group, Inc. The Board also adopted a resolution reapproving formation of the Building Corporation, comprised of President Keith Wyss and directors Rob Marr and Carey Jacquay and a resolution approving preliminary building plans, form of amendment to lease and authorizing publication notice of lease hearing.
Director of Special Education and SGCS grant writer Nancy Becker reported that the Corporation received a $70,000 special education grant which will be used to purchase the Scholastic Math inventory for grades K-12, a progress monitoring system, five additional “hot spots” for wireless Internet connectivity, 90 more iPads, the Fast Math program and Pre-Algebra and Pre-Geometry intervention software.
The next regular scheduled Board meeting will be Monday, May 7 at 7 p.m. in the CJSHS Library.
