  1. Washington Elementary School Window Replacement Project ~ The Board of Trustees approved this project.
  2. McKinley and Roosevelt Turf Conversions Construction Documents ~ The Board of Trustees reviewed the construction documents and approved the revised cost estimate. The new synthetic turf will NOT include a black crumb rubber infill. The tentative scheduling is to complete McKinley's field over the summer of 2018 and Roosevelt's field will be completed in conjunction with the new classroom building.
  3. 2017/18 First Interim Report~ The Board of Trustees approved the First Interim Report with a Positive Certification.
  4. Facility Use Fees Update~ The Board of Trustees approved an increase in facility use fees. The Facility Use Fee Schedule for summer camps has not been updated in over 7 years. Summer usage of our facilities has grown tremendously; and in order to maintain the facilities due to the high volume of usage during the summer, it was necessary to increase the fees.
