Current Board Meeting Report

Superintendent Report, August 16, 2021

Items of Interest

Fulton County Opening Agreement:
Once again, as we plan to return from summer break I would like to thank my superintendent colleagues in Fulton Co. and Health Commissioner Kim Cupp for working with our districts on providing a safe environment for the students and staff to return to. 

HVAC:
One of the priorities of the ESSER funds is the inspection, testing, maintenance, repair replacement, and upgrade projects to improve the indoor air quality in school facilities. Upon approval, we will seek bids to upgrade our HVAC system and hope to improve the air quality while increasing the consistency and efficiency of the HVAC systems throughout the district. 

Substitute pay rate increase:
We are extremely fortunate to have many wonderful substitute teachers who work for the district. Upon review of sub compensation, we were at the lower end within the four-county area. To correct this and better align with other districts in the area, Chris and I recommend an increase of the teacher sub rate to $100 per day. 

Upcoming meeting dates:
Due to scheduling conflicts for the previously scheduled board meetings in Sept. and Oct., the proposal is to move those meetings to September 27th and October 25th.
