Board Members Present: Elizabeth Glenshaw, Heidi Lange, Sam Levey, Paul Mayo, Staff Members Present: Mike Harris, Jeff Valence.
1. Call to Order
Chair Elizabeth Glenshaw called the meeting to order at 9:07 AM and turned to Superintendent Harris for an explanation of the conditions and intent of the special emergency session. Superintendent Harris explained that he had requested this emergency meeting because a grant for which the district had applied was about to expire. The state officials had asked the district to expedite the approval of the application, and the window for the application was about to close. The district had identified the need for this project two years ago during the construction project, and the district was now at risk of losing the money. Superintendent Harris noted that there was a quorum of the board present at the meeting.
2. Discussion and Action re Approval and Acceptance of the Grant
Board member Paul Mayo made the following motion which was seconded by Sam Levey:
I move that the Lyme School Board accept the terms of the Emergency Management Performance Grant as presented in the amount of $6,375 for the purchase of window laminates and that the board authorizes the superintendent to sign for the grant on its behalf. Furthermore, the Board acknowledges that the total cost of the project will be $12,750 of which the school district will be responsible for a 50% match ($6,375).
Paul Mayo asked about the window laminate project and Principal Jeff Valence responded with an explanation of its security value and the process for installation.
The motion passed unanimously by a 4-0 vote.
3. Other Business
The board members present briefly discussed the ice cream social for the start of school and the date of the next board meeting which may be held in conjunction with the ice cream social.
The meeting adjourned at 9:20 AM.
