Dist. U-46 Board poised to ratify varied expenses

By Seth Hancock
  The Board of Education in School District U-46 is set to vote on $1.3 million in expenditure at its upcoming meeting on Monday, May 4. The items were presented at the April 20 meeting which was held electronically due to the COVID-19 shutdown.
  The largest item is a three-year contract renewal with APEX Learning at a cost of $620,625 to come from the education fund if approved.
  “Students who fail a graduation requirement are more at risk to drop out of school,” the proposal states. “APEX Learning allows a student to take a graduation requirement online, under the supervision of a certified teacher, to recover the lost graduation requirement. We also offer APEX Learning as a part of our blended learning model for our alternative schools.”
  Sue Kerr asked how the district is charged and Lela Majstorovic, assistant superintendent of secondary schools, said it is “per seat” and U-46 has “unlimited enrollment.”
  The district is asking for $418,870 (operations and maintenance fund) with Lorusso Cement Contractors, Inc. for exterior waterproofing, foundation wall insulation repairs and sidewalk and drainage improvements at Streamwood High School.
  At Elgin’s Washington Elementary School, the district is planning on a sidewalk and drainage improvement project costing $107,938 (operations and maintenance) with Landmark Contractors, Inc.
  The district is asking to purchase a service truck costing $57,449 (transportation fund) with Sutton Ford.
  “The service truck is needed to facilitate minor repairs at the new 1019 Chicago Street facility. It is more cost effective to repair a bus on site than to have to shuttle buses back and forth between the 500 Shales Parkway facility and the 1019 Chicago Street facility…. The Transportation Department does not currently own a truck that meets the needs and specifications listed,” the proposal states.
  With Advanced Communications, Inc., U-46 is asking for $56,739 (operations and maintenance) for a sound system project at Elgin’s Larsen Middle School where the school gymnasium does not currently have a sound system.
  The district also plans to spend $39,000 (education fund) with School Specialty to give backpacks with items, such as glue sticks and number boards, to preschoolers. The district expects to be reimbursed by the nation’s taxpayers through the recent federal CARES Act.
  Superintendent Tony Sanders said the district will make an “emergency purchase,” which he was given authority to do with the board recently suspending policies due to the shutdown, making the board’s unanimous vote a formality.
