Jose shared a presentation summarizes a potential project work list for the district. He gave the board price quotes for projects at MOE, MS/HS, CSI/Preschool/Afters building, flat-top, shop yard, Sargent Field, and school grounds.
His review included photos explaining what the plans are for the flat-top and two-story CSI/Preschool/Afters building. He explained some different options to do work on this space; both having work done and doing it in-house with the current staff. The board asked questions about the choices of roofing for the flat-top. Jose and Barry shared information about what was learned in getting quotes.
There were also questions about walls in the MS/HS that should be rebuilt. Sarah Clarke addressed information about updating the Life Skills rooms and Intervention Rooms. The walls are thin and should be rebuilt with insulation for sound barriers given the use of the rooms.
SUPERINTENDENT REPORT – Barry DePaoli
- Re-opening schools update
Barry gave a short update about reopening. State guidance from OSPI will come out on Friday 6/13 after being delayed from earlier this week. The district re-opening work group is looking at different models within teaching and learning and for operations (transportation, food service, custodial/maintenance). The regional Superintendents group wrote and signed a letter to the governor about opening schools in NCW. This letter explains the health and welfare of the students and how the districts can keep students, staff, and families safe.
Our district continues to collect data from families on to get information about how students and families are doing.
- Capital Project Overview 2020-21
Barry shared a Capital Projects Overview for 2020. The overview provided a summary of available funds and project list established through input of the building administrators and maintenance and operations.
There was some discussion about public restrooms at the MS/HS. These restrooms are showing their age and with ADA requirements, the whole bathroom should be updated. Other items for the audit are ADA access to the MS/HS weight room, and elevator at CSI.
Barry thanked Erik Peterson and Brad Wilson for the work that was done to honor the graduates. Beautiful ceremonies and many positive comments from the community.
There was discussion about how the HS assists with waivers or reductions for ASB fees, events, and supplies.
- BP 2004 – Accountability Goals
- BP 3413 & Procedure – Student Immunization and Life-Threatening Health Conditions
Erika Scroggie explained how the nurses work hard to get all of the students in compliance with the immunizations and required paperwork for students. In our district there are large numbers of students who come to school in the fall without proper paperwork or immunizations. On the HS level Eric is working with the exchange student programs to get the students ready for school.
These board policies are a first reading and will be taking to the next board meeting.
