The Farmington R-7 Board of Education will hold a regular session meeting this evening to discuss and take action on several issues pertaining to ongoing improvement projects and other matters.
The meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. at the school district’s administration building at 1022 Ste. Genevieve Ave and is open to the public.
During the meeting the board will be asked to discuss and take action on the replacement of 22 air conditioning units at Jefferson Elementary with 22 High Efficiency Carrier Heating and Cooling Units. This would allow the school to do away with an outdated and inefficient boiler system.
The board will also be asked to approve the purchase of a 72-passenger handicap accessible bus and two 78-passenger buses as part of the district’s plan to retire some of the older buses in the fleet.
Andy White, the director of technology, will ask the board to approve the purchase of 750 new Chromebooks for the middle school and high school as part of a district move to the 1:1 initiative next school year.
The group should also hear from Wade Welch, of Hoener Associates, for an update on the architectual portion of several projects resulting from the bond issue passage last year.
The board will discuss other matters before adjourning to closed session.
