Quitman ISD gets costs for construction projects

Posted

Quitman school board members unanimously approved the guaranteed maximum price for the renovation of the information technology (IT) facility and animal barn project.

Jackson Construction’s J.D. Hale presented the board with the proposal. Approved was $2,727,576 for animal barn and $200,000 for the IT renovation.

Prior to the meeting, Jeana Hensley was presented with her certification as a Texas School Business Specialist.

The board heard from the principal of each campus concerning their handbooks. Brittany Eldred of Quitman Elementary School, new junior high principal Bryan Hurst and new high school principal Jeff Tittle presented their campus handbooks. There were few changes in each of the handbooks.

Tittle added in the high school handbook an explanation of an app students can use to report inappropriate behavior such as bullying and remain anonymous. The matter did not need a vote.

The board reviewed the employee handbook and the Student Code of conduct for the 2022-23 school year.

The board approved the TASB risk management renewal for $175,112, a slight increase over last year.

County Tax Assessor-Collector Carol Taylor and/or her assistant Angie Luman were approved to calculate the no-new revenue tax rate and voter approval tax rate in accordance with the Texas Tax Code. Kari Wilson reported tax collections were at 96.29%.

A budget amendment for $34,000 for food service was approved. Another budget amendment of $25,000 for HVAC replacements, two at the high school and one at the elementary, was also approved by the board.

The Region VII inter-local service agreements and resolution were approved for the ’22-23 school year.
