The Skyline R-II Board meeting met in regular session on Wednesday March 17, 2017 with 6 members present. The consent agenda items consisting of Board minutes, bills and financial statement were presented and approved.
In old business: The Board authorized Ms. Curtis to purchase a used bus from Midwest Transit with $6,000 credit and additional funding. Ms. Curtis presented a preliminary budget for the 2017/18 school year. A discussion was held regarding changes to the budget and areas of concern. The 2017/18 budget will be voted on at the June Board meeting.
In new business: The Board voted to change the June Board meeting to June 28th. This late date will allow time to close out the 2016/17 fiscal year. 2 bids were presented and opened for the purchase of used school buses. Jeff Searcy’s bid was accepted for 3 of the used buses for $700 each. The Board decided to hold on to bus #19 for now to use parts to other buses.
In the Superintendent’s Report: Enrollment for May was 85 students in K-8th grade with 9 preschool students. Ms. Curtis went over Board procedures and policies to help orient the new Board members. The upper body strength playground equipment that was purchased through the Missouri Foundation for Health grant is being installed this week.
