Wednesday Dec. 20th was added as a school day (delaying winter break by 1 day) to make up for the 3rd day lost to bad weather already. Only two bad weather days were set aside in the original schedule (April 13th & 20th) to end school before the Memorial Day holiday. May 24, 2007 remains the last day of classes even with this change, but would need to be changed if further days are lost to weather or any other reason.

12) Assistant Superintendent's Report. -- Terry Due's report:

  • Work had been progressing nicely on the new ECC building before the sleet & snow storm of last week. Most of the roof has been installed and metal studs are started on the north end of the new building. ~$20K in change orders are being negotiated (including relocation of a rural water meter, a lift station for waste flow and a transformer change.)
  • Bad weather at the new CHS track is delaying the sod placement and fence installation but will begin as soon as the ground is dry enough. The target date for the final track coating has been moved from Dec. 8th to Dec. 15th.

13) Superintendent's Report.
-- Pat Herald's report:

  • Pat thanked Bob Cottingim, Tim Nelson and Louis Keith for their extra efforts clearing snow and ice at all of the school campuses which allowed school to resume Tuesday.
  • Guttering problems have been reported at most campuses due to the heavy snow and ice.
  • A police search in town last week (for a suspect that might have been armed) caused a temporary lockdown at the middle school based on indirect information as the school was not contacted directly by the city or police. Officer Boggs was out of town during the event but he, the city and school leaders will continue to meet and discuss ways to improve communication for any situation when school safety might be involved.

14) Announcements.

  • Joe Hampton has filed for another 5 year school board term and will be opposed by Keath Storm in the Feb. 13th election for post #2.
