following items will appear on the agenda at the above scheduled meeting to wit:
The Board of Education may discuss, vote to approve, vote to disapprove, vote
to table or decide not to vote on any item on this agenda.

Vote to Approve Activity Fund Fundraisers. -- 4 approved
Bond Technology Update - Larry Meece. -- Much of the $300K
has been used for infrastructure improvements and upgrades. Other specific additions
have been made on each campus including ~$100K in Smartboards. Roughly $50 remains
at this point and will be used to help fund Collinsville's part of a pilot program
(1 of only 4 Okla. schools) with STI. That online system will allow parent and
teacher interaction with students assignments and records and grades on a secure
system (out-of-state). The system will be required
at all schools in a few years and this pilot program participation will greatly
reduce Collinsville's overall cost.
