* Still work to be done on Middle School Gym (wrestling room ceiling)
* More parking needed at CHS (& an asphalt overlay). Some temporary hole repairs
have been and new stripes were painted over spring break. Additional parking areas will likely be under future bond proposals. Possible replacement of the Vo-Ag building and bus barn (again a future bond topic) might free a new parking area.
* With potential future bond topics popping up in the parking discussion above, the suggestion for a potential new administration building came up as office space is tight and the school pays rent to the bank for the current admin offices.

* Soil on 11 different school properties will be tested by Collinsville Community Outreach (Cyprus Amax Minerals Co.) ... as will other Collinsville residential and commercial properties.
* Federal stimulus money has the odd characteristic that it is mandated to be spent quickly for the designated use while schools may be unable to spend in others areas due to the budget shortages there.
Pat also indicated this was the first Wednesday night school board meet in his 24+ years but was required to work around the re-employment deadline and school board members being out of town at national meetings.
