03/04/14 The Plymouth School Board will convene on Tuesday, March 4 at 6:00 P.M. for an executive session. Immediately following, at approximately 7:00 P.M., they will hold a regular open meeting. Both meetings will be held in the Administration Board Room on Berkley Street.
Among other items, the Board will consider snow-makeup days, adoption of the 2014-2015 School Year Calendar and Transfer Students deadlines.
The recommendation being considered for transfer student’s deadline would include requests until June 2, 2015, unless capacity has already been reached.
Capacity for grades K-8 will be considered at 325 per grade. Administrators are proposing that there be an unlimited capacity for grades 9-12. If the total number of students requesting to transfer to the Plymouth system were to exceed the capacity per grade, a lottery would be held at the next Board meeting to determine students to be accepted at the next Board meeting immediately after the receipt of an application.
The Plymouth School Board is also expected to consider taking bids for summer projects that could total $481,500. Projects being considered for work at each of the four elementary schools, Riverside Intermediate School and Lincoln Junior High include parking lot repairs, roofing, ADA upgrades, exterior painting, carpet replacement, window replacement, classroom AC units, air conditioning repairs, and sidewalk replacement.
One of the roofing projects would be to completely tear off and replace the roof on the Administration Building at an estimated cost of $55,000.
Projects proposed specifically for Plymouth High School include Ag-shop renovations, visitor management center for lobby door, pneumatic valves and actuator replacements, exterior doors, fence repairs, interior doors, and parking lot repairs.
Additional agenda items include consideration of school breakfast and lunch prices, revised supplemental contact with Ivy Tech, and two agreements with Go Solutions Group, Inc.
The Plymouth School Board meeting is open to the public although comments and questions are limited to agenda items only.
