Special Meeting Minutes

The meeting was called to order by Mr. Champlin at 7:05 p.m. Present were trustees Mr. Higdem, Mr. Giles, Mr. Nield and Dr. Melvin. Also in attendance were Mr. Schroeder, Superintendent; Mrs. Cooper, District Clerk; Jason Derricott of STARR Corp. and Zach and Scott from CTA Architects.

AGENDA: Dr. Melvin moved to approve the agenda as presented.  Mr. Giles seconded the motion.  The motion carried 5–0.

FLAG SALUTE:  Everyone stood and participated in the Pledge of Allegiance.

NEW ELEMENTARY SCHOOL DESIGN and TRAFFIC STUDY UPDATE: Zach from CTA presented a slide show with the schematic design of the new elementary school. The design is the result of meetings with our building committee that includes administrators, teachers, and patrons. The schematic design includes 3 wings with 2 grades per wing, a central gym and cafeteria, large hallways, specials rooms and opportunity for future growth. The board tasked the design build team to increase the square footage of the commons area and had questions regarding the metal material of the siding. Current design includes 30% brick.

Mr. Schroeder, Mr. Champlin and Mr. Derricott are making progress on road and infrastructure requirements and hope to have that nailed down in the next few weeks.

EMERGENCY LEVY: Mr. Higdem moved and Mr. Nield seconded the motion to approve the emergency levy as submitted. The levy rate is consistent with the current levy at .00203 which will generate $79,008. The maximum levy the district qualifies for is .006. These funds will be used specifically for items associated with increased enrollment such as:

  • Desks, chairs, and tables
  • School and office supplies
  • Software licenses
  • Security cameras
  • 3 half-time para-educators
  • Food Service equipment
  • Curriculum materials.

The motion carried 5-0.
