Next school year calendar released, set for U-46 vote

By Seth Hancock
  School District U-46 has released its proposed calendar for the 2021-2022 school year.
  The calendar was presented to the Board of Education at its Monday, Feb. 22 meeting which was virtual due to COVID-19 regulations. A vote could take place at its upcoming March 1 meeting.
  The first day of classes is set for Monday, Aug. 16, a week later on Aug. 23 for pre-school, and the last day is scheduled for Tuesday, May 31. High school graduation is scheduled for Saturday, May 28 while the calendar includes 176 total instructional days, 184 teacher attendance days.
  Thanksgiving break would be three days, starting on Wednesday, Nov. 24. Christmas break would run from Dec. 20 through Jan. 3, and spring break from March 28 through April 1.
  Also presented for March 1 votes were $3.1 million in expenditure items.
  Costing $2.3 million, the district is asking to replace Chromebooks through CDW Government which would be paid through the education fund if approved.
  “The 6,220 new Chromebooks will replace four and five-year-old devices that have met their life expectancy for updates to their operating systems for security purposes,” the proposal states. “The Chromebooks are moved from school to home on a daily basis which takes a toll on the devices. Not only will the new Chromebooks receive security updates, but they will also have updated operating systems and a life span of five years.”
  The Chromebooks would include three-year device and battery warranties.
  U-46 is asking for $722,500 (operations and maintenance fund) with FH Paschen, SN Nielsen and Associates for a lintel and window replacement project at Elgin’s Ellis Middle School.
  With Trico Mechanical Services, U-46 is seeking $126,890 (operations and maintenance fund) for a project at the transportation building.
  “The make up air unit for the paint booth at the Transportation building needs to be replaced,” the proposal states. “Plant Operations could not source the parts needed for repair due to the age of the equipment. As a result, the unit is currently inoperable.”
