The board will consider approving a number of employment hires, including:

The board will also consider approving a number of staff resignations, including Rebecca Shick, a teacher at Dempsey Middle; Erin Hugel, a teacher at Schultz Elementary; and Kathy Friend and Dawna Tompkins, who were School Aged Child Care staff members.

The board will also consider approving a proposal for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning equipment to be installed at Hayes High School. The equipment would be purchased from Johnson Controls Inc. and would cost $32,694.

The board will also consider approving an easement at Woodward Elementary so the American Electric Power Co. can relocate electrical service to accommodate the additions and renovations to the building. The building will be getting a new gym and several classrooms. The work is expected to be completed by the start of the 2017-18 school year.
