Lingo Construction - Construction Presentation
Stan and Jacob Lingo presented "What is Construction Management?" The presentation included the many benefits of using a construction management company as opposed to a design/bid/build process, which is what the district has used in the past. There was discussion regarding legality, accountability, the bidding process, fee structures, and more from the board.
Center for Education Communication - Bond Marketing Services
Kathleen Kennedy presented "Winning Student Investment Campaigns" to the board. This presentation included the process of using her services and how the Center for Communication and Engagement can assist school districts in passing a bond issue.
Dr. Eichelberger emphasized the importance of passing the bond in 2024 due to our increasing student population. He continued by stating how working with an expert with a proven track record for passing bonds would be ideal.
Dr. Eichelberger highlighted a few points in the district and school site updates provided to the board.
A. The board skipped business item A "Discuss and take possible action, in the absence of the President and/or Clerk, to appoint an acting President and/or acting Clerk for the School District to execute any and all documents pertaining to the calling of a special election to authorize general obligation bonds."
This was not needed, as both the BOE President and Clerk were in attendance.
