BOARD REPORTS

 

Student Representative Report
Tayler Summers reported that last week was spring break. The week before was early release for student-led conferences. He said today WHS had sign-ups for ASB officers.

Other Reports
Janice Watts asked John Shoup about the ½ credit for advisory work. She wanted to know if that was for the course or for the year. John said it was for the year. He said there is a rubric they follow for credits for their student-led conference.

SUPERINTENDENT REPORT

 

Mr. Green said he has been working on capital facilities pieces including the preliminary Yale pricing.  Last Wednesday, there was a pre-bid meeting on WHS Phase 1. There were quite a few interested bidders who attended. They will open bids a week from Wednesday. Bill Woodard asked Michael if he had received the geo-thermal report for the new high school site. Michael said that he has not received it yet, but he knew it was coming soon. He said he was told that the heat transfer was not as good as the engineer had initially hoped, but it is an easy site to drill, leading to a potentially cost-effective solution.

CORRESPONDENCE

 

None.

CITIZENS REQUESTS

BOARD REPORTS & REQUESTS

 

Jim Bays reminded Board members that there will be a WQCC meeting on Wednesday, April 17th in the HS Library.  The next Board meeting will have a light agenda so that Board members can work on the Superintendent evaluation.

DISCUSSION ITEMS

 

LRA Multi-District Provider Status
Asha Riley told the Board that LRA had been approved by the state as Multi-District Provider. We are now one of 5 programs in the State that can serve more than 10% of students from outside of our boundary in grades K-12, and the only one in Southwest Washington. She is working on developing inter-district agreements.  LRA will next seek full accreditation status.

Yale Project Status and Schedule Update
Michael told the Board he had been very busy working on the Yale Gym project, since the last Board meeting.  Eric Lanciault, Architect, gave the Board an update on the project. He showed the Board the updated design, which included decorative half cylinders, reflective of the forest. Due to seismic requirements, they will not be able to use existing trusses. They are working aggressively to keep on schedule. He said, if the project is not complete by October 15th, he is confident that it will be partially completed so that students may use the gym.  Construction is scheduled to begin right after July 4th. The Board discussed the update.
