The school board's legal counsel, Sheri Morris, had an associate, Mr. Parsons, present to the board options on how best to enter into leases for the oil rights associated with the 28 acres of the current Middle School property.  The board began the process of putting this oil lease out for bid, which could potentially earn the School System additional revenue.  The Board authorized PBK, the architects for the new school buildings, to do the study and design work necessary to make required changes to Sullivan Road to accomodate traffic for the new schools.  Additionally, the Board has tasked PBK with preparing bid packages for the demolition and resulting site work to remove existing buildings from the new school site.  Mr. Faulk then gained Board approval to apply for a JAG-LA Grant which would assist high school students in preparing for meaningful employment upon graduation.  Mr. Faulk reported that support and substutute teachers have been sent letters giving reasonable assurance of employment for the next school year.
Mr. Bogan, the Construction Coordinator reported that the bids will go out for the two new schools on July 12th and that renovations will begin in CHS, Bellingrath and Tanglewood on May 28th, the day after the last day of school for students.
There will be a special School Board meeting on May 5th to consider the 90% progress report from PBK Architects on the new Middle and Upper Elementary schools.
