An otherwise routine meeting of the Central Community School Board ended in executive session to discuss the lawsuit brought by The Lemoine Company.  The lawsuit attempts to disallow the low bid of MAPP Construction over a technicality on the bid form, which would then cause The Lemoine Company to be the low bidder.  The case was heard the following day on July 28th and Judge Kay Bates is expexted to decide the matter on August 3rd.
Other more routine items included changes to the Employee Benefits Package, the Student Handbook and the Employee Handbook.  Food Service Department bids were discussed and Mr. Williams, standing in for Mr. Faulk who was out of town, made recommendations for staff changes.  The Board also received a report on the progress of the Special Education Audit Action Plan from Amy McLin, who reported that excellent progress is being made toward meeting the objectives of the plan.
In the school construction arena, a change order was approved in the amount of $55,851.87 for the earth work package which was necessitated by the moving of drainage retention ponds due to last minute wetlands determinations.  Mr. Bogan reported that all school renovations were on or ahead of schedule.
