West Central School Board Discusses Purchase of New Doors for Safety Upgrade

The West Central School Board members considered the purchase of new doors at the elementary school.

Superintendent Dan Zylstra said the purchase is over $200,000, but a Secured School Safety grant award in the amount of $100,000 will be used toward the claim.

He stated in a previous meeting that the classroom doors are original to the building.  Some doors will be keyed differently to secure different parts of the building and the grant funds will also help with that cost.

The school board unanimously approved the requisition as presented. 

The board also unanimously approved the renewal of computer licenses as listed in the requisitions list.
