CALL TO ORDER
Mr. Norris called the meeting to order at 8:30 a.m., for the purpose of discussing the Midway and McLees auditoriums, approving employment recommendations and receiving information with regard to the 2012-2013 General Fund Budget.
MIDWAY AND MCLEES AUDITORIUMS
Mrs. Bagley stated that the Board voted to change the carpet in the media centers, the Admin areas, and the auditoriums at Midway and McLees.ï¿½ Mrs. Bagley stated that she met with the carpet manufacturer representatives at Midway to discuss replacing the carpet in the auditorium.ï¿½ After meeting with the representatives, they were adamant that the carpet should last approximately 25 years and there was no need to change it out. Millie Thomason of McMillan Pazdan Smith came up with a design that would cover the steps where most of the wear is and then we would try to clean the remaining carpet. The representatives attempted to clean the remaining carpet but was unable to get all of the dirt out. Mrs. Bagley recommended that we replace the carpet in both auditoriums and make sure there is a written plan for the types of chemicals that must be used, specifications of how many times the carpet must be cleaned, and the type of equipment that must be used. Mrs. Bagley stated that the cost to replace the carpet at both schools is approximately $67,400.
Following some discussion, Mrs. Huitt made a motion the Board approve replacing the carpet in the auditoriums at Midway and McLees for approximately $67,400 and authorize the superintendent to explore other alternatives that may be immediately available and to move forward without having to come back before the Board for approval. Mr. Bradshaw seconded the motion, which carried unanimously.
Mr. Mahaffey presented for Board approval a list of personnel given out at the meeting being recommended for the 2012-2013 school year.
Mrs. Huitt made a motion the Board approve the list of personnel as presented. Dr. Talmadge seconded the motion, which carried unanimously.
2012-2013 BUDGET UPDATE (HOLD HARMLESS)
Mrs. Bagley stated that when the Conference Committee approved the budget for South Carolina, they did not keep the Hold Harmless provision. The Senate version had the Hold Harmless in their budget, but the House did not. She stated that throughout our budget process, we presented the Senate version of the budget. Without the Hold Harmless provision, we lost approximately $$387,365 from the 2012-2013 General Fund Budget. Mrs. Bagley recommended that we move forward and take the $387,365 from the Fund Balance.
Dr. Talmadge made a motion the Board approve to take $387,365 from the Fund Balance to place in the 2012-2013 General Fund Budget because of the failure of the state legislature to approve the Hold Harmless provision. Mr. Zugg seconded the motion, which carried unanimously.
There being no further business, Mr. Zugg made a motion the Board adjourn. Mr. Bradshaw seconded the motion, which carried unanimously.
As Approved By Superintendent
