School board chooses energy contractor for High School

The Shelbyville school board took the first step to replace the heating system in the High School building during the regular school board meeting Thursday evening.

After hearing recommendations from the facilities committee, the board approved GRP, one of three contractors reviewed during the past month.

GRP offered three systems for climate control: chilled water/hot water, gas heating and cooling, and variable refrigerant flow system. Each vary in pros and cons as well as cost. GRP recommends the chilled water/hot water system for the building.

The board also heard of proposed changes to the High School athletic Hall of Fame to include those athletes before 1981 who have achieved the new standards set by the Hall of Fame committee.

The current Hall of Fame is located outside the gym in the east hallway.

“We want to revamp the wall with universal plaques for each individual and additional achievement banners in the gym,” athletic director Tony Pullen told the board. “The big part is we need to know who is in the Hall of Fame and who deserves to be in the Hall of Fame. If we have to go back through old yearbooks, that’s what we’ll do.”

The committee will partner with the Shelbyville Booster Foundation to fund the new individual and team plaques, new track record board, state medalist and champion banners for the gym, record boards for various sports, additional gym banners for various sports and new placement of IHSA team trophies

He added that a sponsor board will also be posted with four levels of donations.

In other business the board approved the bid for carpet replacement in the mobile classrooms at Main Street School was awarded to Select Interiors in the amount of $3060.29.

The board also approved the intergovernmental agreement between Shelbyville School District and the Windsor School District for a shared industrial arts teacher for the 2014-2015 school year. Shelbyville would be the home district, responsible for hiring the instructor. The instructor would be paid through the Shelbyville District and Windsor would reimburse one-half the salary. Windsor school board approved the agreement during its meeting Wednesday evening. Corben White was approved for the position as a result of executive session.
