-DISCUSSED A RESOLUTION providing for the issue of General Obligation School Bonds, Series 2019, of the District, for the purpose of altering and reconstructing school buildings and purchasing and installing equipment therein for fire prevention and safety, energy conservation and school security purposes, providing for the levy of a direct annual tax sufficient to pay the principal and interest on said bonds, and authorizing the sale of said bonds to the purchaser thereof – Good news here – the interest rates have been declining and where we expected to issue bonds at a 4.25% interest rate, it looks as though we may be near 3.25% - a savings over 10 years of $350,000

Motion: I move to approve the Resolution providing for the issue of General Obligation School Bonds, Series 2019, of the District, for the purpose of altering and reconstructing school buildings and purchasing and installing equipment therein for fire prevention and safety, energy conservation and school security purposes, providing for the levy of a direct annual tax sufficient to pay the principal and interest on said bonds, and authorizing the sale of said bonds to the purchaser thereof.

-The plan remains the same with the exception of updating specific calendar dates within the plan itself. This plan designates the lower grade levels as the grade levels targeted for additional funding to address academic deficiencies of students. All research indicates that students perform at grade level by 3rd grade have a much higher success rate in subsequent educational pursuits-we have targeted those young students. It also describes the decision-making process we use for professional development, allocation of resources and needs assessments across various grant funded projects.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Motion:  I move to Approve the 2019-2020 Consolidated District Plan as presented and submit to ISBE.

-Approve Property, Liability, Vehicle, Workman’s Comp Insurance Proposal from Compass Insurance Partners ( formally Metz-Stoller )  I will highlight a couple of changes to the policy and coverages.  A combination of new vehicles being insured – 2018 versus 2011 buses and the increase in cost of replacement value of buildings has resulted in a 2% increase in premiums – Last year was $82,079

Motion:  I move to accept the Insurance proposal from Compass Insurance Partners at a premium of $83,865

-To keep the date consistent, and to end school early to start construction of the new heating system, the date needs to be May 15. We recognize that there may be conflicts with track or other things, but school ends May 14. It was proposed that the graduation be on Sunday, May 17 to avoid any conflicts.

 

Motion: I move to approve May 15 as Graduation for the class of 2020-MOTION TABLED TO GATHER FURTHER INFO.

-CEP participation-We got into this program 4 years ago. They pay for 1.5 kids for each kids enrolled in program. There was a drop of 20 students in the participation rate. It is expected that the reimbursement will down about 13% which is about $20,000. This means that it will cost us around $13,000 to continue supplying free meals to K-8 students.

 

Motion: I move to renew CEP for grades K-8 for a new 4 year funding cycle.
