Mr. Leeds recognized Dr. Lolli for being the first recipient of the Betsy M. Cowles Women in Leadership Award presented by Buckeye Association of School Administrators.

 

Presentations:

 

Mrs. Thorpe gave a financial overview of the financial needs/condition of the district. Several scenarios where presented to the Board regarding the renewal of upcoming emergency levies at the last Board meeting. The scenario in discussion is non-renewing two upcoming emergency levies and leaving the third emergency levy in place. These emergency levies would be replaced on the ballot with one combined emergency levy in the amount of 5 million. The Board asked what amount a 5 million levy would cost the homeowners of Monroe at the previous meeting. Mrs. Thorpe has the figures as $211.00 additional cost to the homeowner of a $100,000 home. The Board is still interested in information regarding a Substitute Levy. This is still before the Senate Sub-committee as HB562.

Discussions:

 

Retire/Rehire of Robert Leahy, High School Principal:  Mr. Leahy will have a two year contract in place of the existing contract which will be brought before the Board on July 21, 2008. See: Double Dipping Editorial 

Mr. Phillips from Quandel addressed the Board concerning the RFP for the roofing replacement project at the Monroe Primary School. Quandel gathered information from six separate companies that brought in different ideas. Three bids where sent back for this project. The bid from R. E. Forshee Company of Cincinnati seems to be the best bid for this project. The warranty on the roof will be for a period of 15 years for each end of the building and a 30 year warranty for the auditorium/gymnasium and kitchen areas with a total tear off.   A total of 15,000 square foot of the roof will be torn off. The total cost for the project is $350,774. See presentations/documents # 080623-A for bid matrix.
