March 5, 2006 - Topping the agenda for Monday’s regular meeting of Sulphur Springs Independent School District Board of Education will be a presentation by Larry Claycomb of the final plans for bond projects.
Among those projects will be the addition at Early Childhood Learning Center, and renovations and additions to the science wing and fine arts/band area at Sulphur Springs High School, according to information presented during the bond election.
Also, during Monday’s regular meeting, held one week ahead of the usual schedule so that school officials and trustees would not have to meet on the first day of spring break, the board will also be asked to approve a Head Start refunding application totaling $1.47 million and a lease agreement with the county for use of electronic voting equipment.
The district is asking for $1,160,695 in continued funding, $15,761 for training and technical assistance, and $294,114 for in-kind matches in the Head Start refunding application.
The lease agreement with the county for voting equipment would begin on April 28 and expires 10 days after the May 13 trustees election for two spots on the school board. Under the agreement, the school district would be charged 2 percent of the total cost of the county-owned equipment, not including programming costs. That’s 2 percent of the overall $44,000 equipment cost, or $880, which will be shared with the city and hospital district for a total of $293.33 rental fee, according to the proposed data.
The school board meeting will begin at 6 p.m. Monday in the board room at SSISD Adminstration Building, 631 Connally St.
