17) Assistant Superintendent's Report:
Mr. Creech indicated the construction of the new middle school building has lost 15 days due to the recent rainy season. All of the construction sub contractors will meet Tuesday to plan activities when the rain finally does stop. There are 400 loads of dirt to haul in to raise the building level.
18) Superintendent's Report:
Discussion and planning continues on changes to allow more middle school athletic practice time (currently only about 25 minutes per day). A decision is likely at the Jan. or Feb. schol board meeting. The change will ripple across most academic, athletic, band and transportation schedules (at both HS & MS). A first hour practice time slot (which can occasionally expand into zero hour) is the goal. Basketball practice with two teams sharing the same gym (i.e. half court or cross court practice) is one of the few unavoidable drawbacks according to Athletic Director Bill Rule.
Mr. Herald thanked Assistant Superintendent Craig Creech for his many years of service to the Collinsville School System as this was his last official school board meeting before his resignation takes place. Mr. Creech said he had been in education for 35 years. He came to Collinsville as a teacher with plans to stay just 1 year, but liked it here stayed instead. He has been in the Assistant Superintendent's role for the past 19 & 1/2 years. Herald indicated Craig would likely be put on contract to help finish out several unfinished projects for a few months next year. Terry Due will be the Assistant Superintendant in January.
