Varied expense items approved by Dist. U-46


By Seth Hancock
  The Board of Education in School District U-46 unanimously approved five expenditure proposals totaling $1.9 million at its meeting on Monday, May 21.
  Included was a three-year contract renewal costing $1.1 million, coming from the education fund, with Ombudsman. The district will purchase 65 slots in the program, up from 61 this year, and a memo to the board stated: “We typically have a waiting list for Ombudsman slots. However, Ombudsman only charges for the days and the slots we use.”
  Ombudsman is an alternative program for “students who are expelled and for student s with behavior or attendance issues” according to the proposal, and by “extending the contract renewal to a three year agreement, we will experience a cost savings of $46,410 over the three year life of this contract.”
  Also approved was the purchase of Hilltopper Infield Mix from Stabilizer Solutions at a cost of $338,080 (operations and maintenance fund), and this approval should cut down on the number of rainouts experienced by U-46 softball teams.
  According to the proposal, most of the softball fields in the district are located in “low-lying areas” increasing the chances of rainouts. South Elgin High School’s softball team has been using the mix through a donation and has seen success, and this purchase will provide the mix now at all five high schools.
  “South Elgin High School was used as a beta test site for Hilltopper Infield Mix produced by  Stabilizer Solutions (a single source supplier due to patented polymer process) and donated to  the District by DePaul University via International Sport Surfaces, Inc.,” the proposal states. “The results have been increased consistent playability, safety and less labor to get the field in playable condition on a daily basis.”
  The proposal continues: “The plan is to get all five varsity softball fields in the District in the same condition to reduce unplayable days and increase the quality of the playing surfaces for competition, safety and equity in support of the Title IX IHSA sports. This new mix will allow for maximum drainage, lessening rainouts.”
  Two proposals were approved regarding copy supplies and equipment including one costing $313,356 (education) fund for a three-year supply of paper, split between Veritive ($288,834) for white paper and Office Depot ($24,522) for color paper, as well as a proposal costing $67,298 (education fund) to purchase a total of three multi-functional copiers between Canon Solutions America ($44,036) and Konica Minolta ($23,261).
  A proposal costing $60,200 (capital projects and life safety funds) with Colfax Corporation was approved to replace mechanical equipment at Streamwood’s Canton Middle School which currently contains asbestos materials.
  The board also unanimously approved $9.1 million in itemized bills.
