Dundee school board 8/12/10

Meeting: Dundee Central School District board of education met for approximately one hour, Aug. 12. The meeting was preceded by an executive session to discuss personnel matters lasting approximately 30 minutes.
Attendance: All board members were present. No members of the public were in the audience.
Action: Appointed a student representative to the board of education. The student’s name will be announced next month.
• Discussed use of the playing fields with Athletic Director Charles Mochamer. Changes will be implemented this year and next year the football field will not be available due to capital project work. He said the goal is planning ahead.
• Junior/Senior High Principal Chris Arnold told the board students will be assigned lockers that will be theirs from the time they enter Junior High until graduation. This will keep students with their own grade level.
• School supplies were a topic of discussion. Board member Kristin VanValkenberg commented there are a lot of materials on the list of school supplies. She was concerned that there would not be enough space in student’s lockers for all the supplies plus their books.  Superintendent of Schools Kathy Ring said she plans to contact parents via Connect Call regarding supplies.
• Ring announced something she termed, “wonderful news.” DCS alumna Kevin Oliver now teaches in California and his school has adopted the Christmas for the Needy program and will donate $500 to the program.
• School Business Official Melissa Lawson told the board Phase 2 of the capital project has been approved and documents will be out for bid soon. She said very little Phase 2 work will be done in the fall, but will, “Really get rolling in the Spring.”
• Board President Joseph Capurso commended the district transportation department for having 95.8 percent of regular vehicles pass the New York State Department of Transportation’s bus safety inspection during the 2009-10 school year.
Bids/purchases over $1,000: Authorized the purchasing agent to execute a contract with ATL Engineering for limited culvert  condition survey services at a cost not to exceed $2,850 related to Phase 2 of the capital improvement project. Lawson said the culvert in question extends all the way under the football field and track.  The work was needed to make sure the culvert is in good shape in anticipation of Phase 2 work.
Upcoming meetings: Sept. 9 at 7 p.m. in the public meeting room.
