The Fulton Public Schools Board of Education will meet at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Fulton High School Commons.

In regular business, Tim Echelmeier and Dan Hedgpath will update the board on facilities and technology. Both areas are priorities in current district improvement projects.

The board will consider contracts for site improvements at McIntire and Bush elementary schools. Consultants Engineering Surveys and Services recommend the district approve a contract with Christensen Construction Co. for the McIntire improvements and a contract with C. L. Richardson Construction Co. for the Bush improvements.

Also on Wednesday night's agenda are school bus purchases — district administration recommends the board approve the trade-in and purchase of three new buses for $254,584.

In other business, the board will consider approving fiscal year 2022 compensation.

Two returning members, Jackie Pritchett and Leah Baker, were elected to the board last week. In recognition of the election, the board will reorganize and elect new officers.

Parent Emily van Schenkhof has requested the opportunity to address the board Wednesday night about racial equity. Van Schenkhof submitted a statement explaining what she would like to discuss.

"It is my belief that inexperience in talking about racism and its impact on society hurts all of us," Van Schenkhof wrote in a submitted purpose statement. "I want to express my desire as a parent to see creating spaces for discussing, learning and addressing racial inequity as a part of the strategic goals for the Fulton Public School system."
