8) Bond Issue Information - Ron Evans
I joined this discussion in progress and have
several pages of notes, but will summarized briefly that Ron had questions
for the board that he said were answered as the discussion concluded.
Ron questioned why an auditorium, air conditioning for the HS gym, HS
science lab improvements and HS Library improvements were
not on the bond issue ahead of field turf. Having attended most of the
school board meetings for the past almost 5 years I have heard these
answers many times before. Even more details and rationale for all of
the items on the March 4th bond election will be presented to Collinsville
school patrons in the 2 months before the vote in meetings and the local
media. -- Ted

Consideration of Naming the Baseball/Softball Field House. --
Athletic Director Bill Rule and CHS Baseball Coach Tony Reeder both
said that the former "Pepsi Building" should be named for
the Bob Cottingim and Eaton familes for all the past donations and support
for many years to Collinsville schools, but a new donation exceeding
$10,000 makes the decision much easier. The vending machine contracts
with Pepsi (which have been restricted by nutritional legislation and
will expire soon) had supported the building's initial years.

5 school days lost due to the December ice storm and only 3 weather
days built into the original
school calendar, Feb 18th (President's day) is a candidate as
a potential makeup day (to be decided at the Feb. 4th board meet)
for 1 of the 2 days make-up days. The Feb. 15th parent/teacher conference
day can not be used for classes. Spring Break (Mar. 17-21) is currently
not being considered for makeup but potentially could be if a significant
number of additional day are lost to weather before then.
