We have good news to share in regards to our copy machine contract. This summer we worked with Da-Com to renegotiate our 5 year lease. Over the past two years, Central has seen a large reduction in the number or copies made per machine. This is partly due to COVID, but even prior to and after the pandemic we have seen reductions in the total amount of copies made per month. In the new agreement, we were able to get new replacements for all of our old machines and also save over $300 per month on the new lease. We were thrilled with the new offer and I would like to send a huge thank you to Scott Shanafelt for working hard to get our district an outstanding deal from Da-Com

We have also started to work with CTS to discuss our current phone system billing costs (fax, local, long distance, taxes, etc.) and it looks like we could also gain considerable cost savings by switching to Voice Over IP phone lines. Based on the current quote, our phone costs could be reduced from approximately $700 a month to just over $300. We still have more research to do on the use of VoIP phone systems.

We have not received official information regarding the Career and Technical and Perkins Tutorial grant commitments or allocations, but every indication from the people at the CTE office has confirmed a likely approval. Just as other years, we are hopeful that we can supplement the RTI tutoring services with supply and material money from the Career and Technical Education grant program. We have Mrs. Stacy Schroeder supervising the program, but we will be looking to replace Dawn Becker – who took another job at Aviston Grade School. When we get word, we will move forward with the CTE “materials and supplies” portion of the program.

Dr. Foutch updated the BOE on the Greenhouse. We have ordered the Greenhouse and hope to have all the materials on site to begin construction in the fall. The location of the structure will be on the west side of the “big shed” just east of the fence that runs along the soccer field.

A motion to approve payment #1 to Litteken Construction for $21,793 for the entrance renovation was made by Mary Lou, second by Tanya. Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Kori Voss, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Tim Richter. Nay – None

At the meeting, Dr. Foutch explained the “Back to School” Plan for the 21-22 School Year.

The Health Insurance Committee will meet on Wed., July 7th to review the renewal package from our current provider. We are waiting for the final rates from Blue Cross Blue Shield.

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that we must complete and submit a Consolidated District Plan (CDP) in order to be eligible for federal Title I funds.
