School board meeting agenda highlights
At Thursday night's meeting, the Clay Community School Board of School Trustees approved a resolution for an emergency declaration of $11,914.21 from the Capitol Projects Fund to cover the repair expenses at several schools:
- Clay City Jr/Sr High School's fire alarm system was repaired after a December 2004 test revealed that activation of some pull stations failed to sound the alarm. Koorsen Protection Service, Inc., of Indianapolis, completed the necessary repairs on Jan. 5.
- A large hot water tank at North Clay Middle School was replaced by Industrial Supply Company of Terre Haute during the first week of January.
- At East Side Elementary a classroom unit heater's copper pipe ruptured on Jan. 24. Repairs were completed by Ulrich Chemical, Inc.
- Northview High School had the refrigerated air dryer for the compressed air system replaced. After numerous repair attempts during the past year, the unit which eliminates moisture from the air supply lines for the four shop areas was replaced by Johnstone Supply, of Terre Haute.
The board approved $4,000 from the Clay City Elementary's Book Fair account to be used for the purchase of hardback books for the elementary library.
Clay City High School's band is growing and the band department is searching for more uniforms. Two-year old uniforms from another school corporation have been located at a cost of $4,200. The school board, unable to pay the full expense from the corporation budget due to regulations in spending funds for this type of purchase, will match the $2,100 in funds generated by Clay City High School.
