SCHS Sees Little Damage to iPads After First Year
The board approved a 2.5% salary increase for non-certified staff members, including teachers aides, bus drivers and secretaries. The total increase to the district is just under $17,000.
Detering now believes the fiscal year end deficit may be cut to $100,000 or possibly eliminated completely depending on what state payments are received by July 1st. The amended budget approved by the board Tuesday night still showed a $196,000 deficit. That compares to the $900,000 deficit the board had projected at the start of the school year.
The board approved Ameresco to complete a $100,000 tuckpointing project on various walls in the school. The work will start next year and be completed before the start of school. Half of the cost will be paid by a State Board of Education maintenance grant.
Principal John Boles announced three more teachers were taking additional classes to become certified to teach dual credit classes. He reports once they are certified, the district will be able to offer more classes for both high school and Kaskaskia College credit.
In personnel action, the board accepted the resignation of James Sager as Assistant Boys Basketball Coach and employed Carolyn Barr as a kitchen helper for the coming school year.
