Braster made a motion to approve the 28E agreements for Spanish teacher and curriculum director. Board member Nick Hindley said he thought the Centerville teacher could be used to offer Spanish at lower grades. Braster disagreed saying that he didn’t think that should be a priority. Braster’s motion failed to get a second and died.
The board then began discussing the technology position. Ryan said he was recommending the 28E agreement be approved. Lange made a motion to approve the sharing agreement. Board member Bill Matkovich seconded and the motion passed unanimously.
Moulton-Udell also asked that Centerville continue sharing agreements in extra curricular activities. Activities Director Greg Fisher asked the board for guidance. The board approved the continuation of the sharing unless it would bump Centerville into a higher classification due to enrollment numbers.
The board discussed a door replacement project for the district that could cost approximately $100,000. The project would include the replacement of exterior doors for both structural and safety reasons. Braster asked about waiting until the district had a facilities plan in place. Lange and board member Joe Sharp thought the needs at the high school were more urgent and might need to be addressed this summer. Board member Bill Matkovich agreed with Braster and thought waiting for a facilities plan was a good idea.
In the end the board decided to table the door replacement project and the related engineering agreement with Hall Engineering.
Phase one of a facilities study with Estes Construction was then discussed. During phase one Estes Construction will do a study of the district’s buildings and current and future construction needs. The board approved going ahead with phase one.
Graduating seniors from Centerville High School and Appanoose County Campus were approved and board members volunteered to attend each graduation ceremony. Lange, Moore, Braster and Roos said they would attend the Centerville High School ceremony on May 17 while Lange, Braster and Roos also volunteered to be at the Appanoose County Campus ceremony May 15.
