The Eastern Pulaski School Board will be discussing bids for the upcoming building renovation projects in a work session beginning at 5 p.m. ET tonight. The projects include the construction of secure entrances at the schools, upgrades of classrooms and a new gymnasium floor. The project is estimated at $14 million.
The school board plans to meet in regular session immediately following the work session where an increase in cafeteria meal prices as part of a federal mandate will be a topic of conversation. The board will also consider a grant for an alternative school program, approve a memorandum of understanding with the teacher’s association, and approve summer school classes. The school board will determine if enrollment will sustain the need for the summer school classes. A gym class has historically been a popular class for students so that credit can be completed outside of the regular school year.
Donations for a PACE Grant, a kiln for the art department, and trees from the NIPSCO program will be considered for acceptance.
The meetings will take place in the Distance Learning Lab on the Eastern Pulaski School Corporation campus.
