Student Representative Report
Tayler Summers reported said that the ASB held their elections, and that he will continue to be the Student Representative to the Board. The prom was held at the Red Lion at Jantzen Beach.

They are still working on final testing.  Jim Bays asked who the other ASB officers were. Tayler said that officers are Grant Booker -President; Michael Mentler- Vice-President; Karina Rayl-Secretary; Tristian Beaty-Treasurer; and Nicolette Nesbitt-Historian.

SUPERINTENDENT REPORT

 

Mr. Green said that the school year is wrapping up nicely. Thursday is the last day. A fire alarm went off during first period today. It was a false alarm. There was a pre-bid meeting last week for the Yale Project. Nine people showed up; three were general contractors. Bids will be opened on Wednesday. The work out at the Dike Access Road site is moving at a good pace. Michael invited the Board to go out with him and take a look at the interesting work that they are doing. He showed the Board a video of the RAM machine. The Board discussed this process with him. Michael will let the Board know the bid results, Wednesday.   The Wetlands Geologist emailed the Army Corp of Engineers to find out if the report for the project had been approved. They told her they were busy, but that they’d get back to her soon.
