School Board approves grant applications

The Shelbyville School Board approved two grant applications during this month’s meeting.

Superintendent Denise Bence presented applications for an Illinois State Board of Education maintenance grant in the amount of $50,000 and additional Qualified Zone Academy Bonds (QZAB) in the amount of $3.6 million to be used toward the HVAC system.

“We got 70 percent of the amount we requested before,” Bence noted. Previous QZAB funds were used for new windows and geothermal system for Moulton Middle School last year.

The board also approved the updated parent student handbook. Bence noted that there were no significant changes to the handbook but was reworded to match the policy.

Athletic Director Tony Pullen presented a track resurfacing bid from Athletic Field Services, Inc., in the amount of $42,000. The work includes cleaning, repairing and repainting of lines on the all-weather athletic track. Pullen noted that there is a line item in the budget to cover the resurfacing.

In other business the board approved the lease renewal contract with Illinois Consolidated Telephone Company for the Unit Office.

The amended budget for the 2014 fiscal year will be on public display with the budget hearing set for June 13.

In administrative reports, Main Street School principal Shannon Shallenberger reported that the Main Event raised $6,400, including a $250 donation from Beyer’s Chiropractic.

Moulton principal Russ Tomblin reported that the Illinois Association of Student Councils has recognized the Moulton Student Council with the Honor Council award for the service projects they have done during the past year.

Tomblin also made a special presentation to retiring teacher Mary Jane Frost.
