Discussion Items

Agenda Item 5.0

Modifications to Board Policies 2:230 and 6:50 – 5.01
The board discussed proposed changes to policy 2:230, “Participation at Board of Education Meetings and Petitions to the Board” as well as 6:50, “School Wellness.” The board will take action to finalize changes to each policy at an upcoming board of education meeting.

WAN and Dedicated Internet Request for Proposals – 5.02
The board reviewed three proposals that were received for WAN (Wide Area Network), and three proposals that were received for Dedicated Internet. Comcast (1585 Waukegan Road, Waukegan, Illinois 60085) submitted proposals fully meeting the District specifications for WAN (Wide Area Network) and Dedicated Internet. It is expected that at the board meeting on February 26, 2018, the board of education will award a 36-month contract for WAN and Dedicated Internet to Comcast for a cost of $523,800.00, with an estimated E-Rate discount of 80%, resulting in a net cost to the District of $104,760.00. This reflects an increase in overall bandwidth and an approximate $30,000 reduction in cost over the previous three year agreement for WAN and dedicated internet services.


Action Items

Agenda Item 8.0

Capital Improvement Projects 2019 – 8.01
The board authorized the administration to proceed with purchasing and bid procedures required to implement the recommended projects as indicated on the 2018-19 Capital Improvements Projects Report for the 2018-19 fiscal year. Members of the board of education completed a review of proposed capital improvement projects for fiscal year 2018-19 at the January 22, 2018, board meeting.

The administration has recommended that items on the capital improvement project list be completed during the 2018 fiscal year. The cost for completion of district-wide building improvements, to be charged to the 2018-19 fiscal year Operations and Maintenance Fund, is estimated at $395,000.

Approval of Enchanted Backpack Donation for Rupley School – 8.02
The board accepted a donation from Enchanted Backpack of student and school supplies, with an estimated value of $1,000.00, for Rupley School. Enchanted Backpack is a charitable organization that provides supplies for under-resourced elementary and middle schools in the Chicago area.

Mrs. O’Donnell, the principal of Rupley School, requested support from the Enchanted Backpack organization. The donation will allow the Enchanted Backpack Mobile Van to deliver and provide school supplies to Rupley’s entire student body of over 400 students, and will allow teachers to select books for their classrooms, families to select school supplies for the 2018-19 school year, and students to receive clothing and personal hygiene items. In addition, Enchanted Backpack will supply Rupley School with board games, recess equipment, and art supplies.

Approval of Administrator Retirement Agreement – 8.03
The board approved the retirement, waiver, and release agreement between the Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, Ms. Kelley Zerfahs and Community Consolidated School District 59, effective June 30, 2018.

As a result of Ms. Zerfahs voluntarily retiring two years earlier than scheduled, the district will save an estimated $350,000. The district plans to shift a current administrator into the human resources leadership position and not fill the vacated position, which will result in the cost savings for salary and benefits. The estimated $350,000 in savings includes the district expenses for fulfilling the terms of the release agreement.
