The Greenfield High School computer lab will be getting 30 new computers after the Greenfield School Board approved the purchase of 30 new computers at the Dec. 21 school board meeting.
“We do our best to keep our high school computer lab up to date,” Superintendent Kevin Bowman said. “We will take the computers that are in this lab now and move them down to the middle school.”
The funding for the new computers will be coming from the Rural Education Achievement Program (REAP) and Career and Technical Education Improvement (CTEI) grant funding.
The REAP program is designed to help rural districts that may lack the personnel and resources to compete effectively for Federal competitive grants and that often receive grant allocations in amounts that are too small to be effective in meeting their intended purposes.
The purpose of the CTEI grant is to more fully develop the academic and career and technical skills of secondary education students who elect to enroll in Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs.
The district has received a $20,000 grant to scrap the old 1994 bus. Transportation supervisor Ron Plogger is recommending the purchase of a 71-passenger bus to replace the scrapped one and also a 14-passenter activity bus.
Discussion was held about the electric supply contract and Bowman recommended Realgy Energy Services as the district supplier, which the board later approved.
The board approved a motion to approve the resolution abating the taxes levied for the year 2021 to pay debt service on the General Obligation Bonds (ARS) Series 2017. They also adopted the 2021 tax levy as presented.
Bowman was authorized to post for the position of high school English teacher and a Title I teacher.
The board approved hiring Kim McAdams as high school assistant softball coach for this coming spring softball season.
Bowman also reviewed a list of board policies that will be approved at the January meeting.
