SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT:       

 

Mr. Meyer informed the BOE of our current outstanding fees.  We have collected over $71,000 – compared to last year’s amount of $58,000 at this time.  There is still $43,000 of fees to collect this year.  The Crisis Management Team met on September 9th to review the plan.  Drill will be conducted over the next few weeks.  We are required by law to report an itemized salary compensation report for all administrative employees.  The report also has to be sent to the Regional office of Education, presented to the BOE and posted on the website.  Gallagher Basset Services has completed the annual Loss Control Service report that summarizes area of risk around our facility.  There were only a few minor items listed that need to be corrected.  The representative commented that our facility is in very good condition.  Mr. Meyer briefly discussed with the BOE how General State Aid is calculated.  Also noted was the drastic cuts we have received in GSA.  Mr. Meyer also informed the BOE of some federal funds that we will be receiving this year.  The Education Jobs Fund Legislation will provide to us ~$76k.  This can and probably will be used for salaries and benefits and possibly for another aide for an ESL student.  The petition period starts on September 21st for anybody want to run for the BOE.  Mr. Meyer reported on the state audit reports this past spring.  A representative from ISBE came to audit our transportation funds and our Title I grants.               

 

Mr. Dale Holtmann from J.W. Boyle presented the audit.  He reported on the management findings and that J.W. Boyle found Central to have a clean report.

The Summer 2010 project is still not closed.  There are just a few minor items on the punch list.  Mr. Meyer is also still discussing the responsibility of some extra costs that were unexpectedly incurred during the project.  Mr. Todd Jones will be working with contractor to resolve that issue.  Once we get that resolved, final paperwork and the last application for payment should be sent.
