SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT CONTINUED…
Watering System (20-1-20-3)
We have two estimates on the installation of a sprinkler to water all of the grassy school grounds. Enclosed is an
estimate from Tilley sprinklers and a second estimate from Johnson Lawn and Landscape is being prepared and will be
shared at the meeting. Two other small venders declined to give bids because of the size and scope of the project. The
board will review and discuss the estimates and may choose to proceed to move forward with this project and select a
vendor with whom to work. Funding for this project will come from the depreciation account with set aside savings
for equipment for such projects.
Motion: As recommended at the meeting.
Electronic School Sign (21-29)
We have included several signs from two companies that would be appropriate for the district and community. After
discussion at the board meeting the board may choose to proceed to move forward with this project and select a vendor
with whom to work.
Motion: As recommended at the meeting
NCSA Government Relations Conference
On Wednesday, March 2, I attended a legislative conference in regard to current legislation. I have included some of
the information and related comments in the summaries of the bills that may affect our district. It seems that most of
the property tax reduction bills have not made it out of committee at this point in time due to the drastic effect they
would have had on local, county, and school district revenue sources. Updated information regarding those bills is
Custodial Meeting and Summer Maintenance Needs (40-42)
Included in this report is a summary of our March custodial meeting and a list of summer maintenance projects.
The board will discuss the graduation date and decide on the appropriate day for graduation for our students and
community. Next year Ansley is having their graduation on Sunday, May 14 and our initial plan for graduation was
on Saturday, May 13. We have included our senior estimated hours for next year. It looks like the district could have
graduation on the Saturday, May 6 if we would like the seniors to get out a week earlier. Please see the summary of
hours regulated by rule 10.
Motion: I recommend that Saturday May 6 be the date of graduation in 2017.
