Mr. Meyer updated the BOE on the continuous effort to collect outstanding fees.  We continue to have reminders sent each month through the Qmlativ system to others with outstanding bills clearly stating the terms of late payment fees which will be assessed at the end of the school year. We still have 22 seniors that have $7259 outstanding. Mr. Meyer will be meeting with those individual senior students.

 

It is the season of banquets…. The 19th Annual Clinton County Academic Excellence Banquet will be held at 7:00 P.M. on Wednesday, April 26th at 7:00 P.M. at the Albers American Legion.  Central has twelve students and their parents who will be recognized at the event.  This is a great opportunity each year to reward and bring attention to those students who achieved great academic success.  We thank all of our corporate sponsors (especially the Clinton County Electric Cooperative from our district) for funding the event.  Also we will have our 11th Annual Academic Achievement Awards program here at Central on Tuesday, May 9th at 7:00 PM.  This will be a chance to celebrate achievements by our students.  Presentations of scholarships, academic performance, attendance, and other special recognitions will be presented.  Invitations will be sent to those students being honored and their parents, but the event is open to the public.  The Annual Senior Awards Banquet of the Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) program is being held on Wednesday, April 26th at 7:00 P.M.  This year is the final one for Mrs. Rittenhouse. 

 

We have three members of the staff who are retiring this year and two expressed a desire for a Retirement Celebration event in their honor and they want to thank those they have worked with over the years.  The retirement committee has planned to recognize both employees on Monday, May 8th at 6:00 P.M. at the Bent Oak Golf Course.  Each Board member and spouse is invited to attend. 

 

Mr. Meyer gave some updates on the Summer 2017 Projects are proceeding as planned.  Over the past few weeks, we have scheduled the replacement of the four hot serving wells in the west line of the kitchen.  In order to get materials and scheduled the project, we submitted that agreement with Commercial Kitchens out of St. Louis at a cost of $4,342.  Most other things have been set up except for the dust collector in the woodshop.  We are still getting proposals for that piece of equipment. 

The proposals for the replacement of water fountains in the Commons Area were very competitive and we feel that the improvements will be excellent.  Joe Lampe did the legwork and the best price we received was from R & B Plumbing for $6,786.00.  This includes four double wall hung water coolers with ADA compliant high/low style.  There will be some necessary plumbing changes in walls and rooms behind the coolers.  We also will need to place 4’ x 10’ stainless steel covers “plates” (included) on walls to protect and cover the necessary changes. A motion to approve installation of water fountains by R&B for $6786.00 4 which include 2 sets of double wall coolers high-low style was made by Voss, second by Strieker.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Mary Lou Voss, Dennis Meier, Tina Winkeler, Mike Strieker, Kris Rickhoff.  Nay – None

 

Additions and the development of preliminary planning and cost estimates by the architect for the 18-19 project were discussed.  Mr. Todd Jones of FGM Architects is very close to having additional “diagrams” and numbers for us.  We have made appointments to hold meetings to share those plans and hold discussions with the respective members of the staff.  And, from those Todd will be able to develop more established numbers.  Last month, there was a set of questions that were probably very preliminary to the stage at which we find ourselves, but we welcome discussion at any time.

 

Prior to the meeting in March, a hearing to outline the Third-Party Contract for Special Service Transportation Contracts was held and the Board approved those specifications and the letting of bids.  We also held a Pre-bid meeting last Thursday for prospective providers and will receive bids on the same day this packet is mailed.  Mr. Meyer gave a summary of the bids submitted.  He recommended to the BOE the lowest bid that was received.  A motion to approve Durham Transportation for our transportation contracts for special routes for 2017-18 - 2019-20 as presented was made by Voss, second by Winkeler.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Mary Lou Voss, Dennis Meier, Tina Winkeler, Mike Strieker, Kris Rickhoff.  Nay – None

 

Mr. Meyer presented the recommendations on 2017-20 Non-Certified Wage rates. A motion to approve non-certified wage increase for 2017-18 through 2019-20 as presented was made by Strieker, second by Meier.   Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Mary Lou Voss, Dennis Meier, Tina Winkeler, Mike Strieker, Kris Rickhoff.  Nay – None

 

Recent legislation and Illinois School Code provisions now require policies that provide guidelines to the reimbursement to Board members for expenses and costs that are incurred for their duties.   Therefore, we must adopt a Board Member Expense and Compensation Policy for our manual.  In addition, forms are recommended for this process and approval of anticipated expenses (as well as reimbursements after expenses are made) must be approved by the Board of Education at regular meetings. Mr. Meyer recommended  a first reading on Monday evening.
