ROGERSVILLE — A brief agenda faced members of the Rogersville City School Board for their Tuesday, June 4, 2019 meeting.

In addition to routine “end of school year” budget adjustments, the BOE also approved agreements with Well Child and Ballad Health for the providing of specific services to RCS students. For ethics reasons, BOE member Todd Biggs abstained from the vote because he is an employee of Ballad Health.

Director of Schools Rebecca Isaacs reported that bids for playground renovation were opened on May 24, and recommended that the BOE approve a bid of $33,330.70 from Great Southern Recreation, the second-to-lowest bidder, due to concerns over materials that were to be used by the lowest bidder, Miracle Playgrounds, which submitted a bid of $28,114.20.

The BOE voted unanimously to approve the bid as recommended by Isaacs.

In her report to the board, Isaacs said that soffit and painting work was slated to begin within days and that a donation of $6,350 had been received from the PTA.

Funding for a long-needed boiler project is included in the school district’s 2019-2020 budget, and that budget has also been approved by the BOE with no requests for increases in funding over the current year’s budget.

Isaccs reported that the “Read to Be Ready” summer program is in progress, and also gave board members an update on end-of-school year athletic accomplishments. Star athletes who distinguished themselves during the 2018-2019 school year will be recognized at the board’s August meeting, she said.

The board set its next meeting date for July 9 at 5 p.m.
