U-46 Board approves minutes status, expenses

By Seth Hancock
  The minutes of 13 closed session meetings and the approval to destroy 15 closed session audio recordings was approved in School District U-46 by the Board of Education.
  The board approved the items at its May 4 meeting, held virtually due to the COVID-19 shutdown, with a 6-0 vote, board member Veronica Noland was absent.
  Sue Kerr, the board’s president, said “the need for confidentiality still exists as to all or part of closed session minutes” and will “remain confidential.”
  The minutes approved ranged from meetings on Sept. 23, 2019 to March 9 this year. The audio recordings to be destroyed ranged from closed session meetings from April 23, 2018 to Oct. 15, 2018.
  Additionally, the board unanimously approved $1.3 million in expenditure proposals at the meeting.
  The largest item was a three-year contract renewal with APEX Learning at a cost of $620,625 to come from the education fund.
  “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.”
  Three items, all from the operations and maintenance fund, were approved concerning individual school projects the largest being $418,870 with Lorusso Cement Contractors, Inc. for exterior waterproofing, foundation wall insulation repairs and sidewalk and drainage improvements at Streamwood High School.
  A sidewalk and drainage improvement project will take place at Elgin’s Washington Elementary School with Landmark Contractors, Inc. costing $107,938. A sound system project for Elgin’s Larsen Middle School’s gymnasium will cost $56,739 with Advanced Communications, Inc.
  The district will spend $57,449 (transportation fund) with Sutton Ford to purchase a service truck.
  The board formally approved an already made purchase with School Specialty costing $39,000 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, a bill with the stated purpose of helping businesses that were shutdown by the government over COVID-19.
  Superintendent Tony Sanders said the district would make the “emergency purchase” before the May 4 vote stating he was given the authority to do so after the board suspending policies due to the shutdown.
  Also approved 6-0 was $9.4 million in itemized bills.
