The Fulton Public Schools Board of Education will give updates on their superintendent search process and finalize the details of their ongoing facility planning at tonight's board meeting.
The meeting is set to take place at 6:30 p.m. at Fulton High School commons/library. Two firms, which may perform the district's superintendent search prior to superintendent Jacque Cowherd's retirement in June 2020, will present.
Presentations are expected to be made by the Missouri Association of Rural Education and the Missouri School Boards' Association. According to the meeting's board packet, the Board of Education has not yet determined what their following action will be after these presentations.
Representatives from Hollis + Miller Architects are expected to give an overview of the current planning status. According to the board packet, the architects will make a suggestion as to what projects the $27 million FPS plans on borrowing will go toward.
These suggestions include securing entries at all schools, upgrading security cameras, adding a new gym at the high school, improving the high school's theatre, renovating the middle school's gym, adding classrooms to the middle school, creating a new kindergarten center, expanding the district's athletic complex parking lot, and improving the district's HVAC, electrical, plumbing, parking lots and sidewalks.
The board is expected to authorize these suggestions and begin working toward developing the ballot language to be considered in the April 2020 general election. Additionally, there will be a fourth facilities planning community forum at 6 p.m. Oct. 30 in the Carl E. Lee Gymnasium at Fulton Middle School.
The board is also expected to approve certified and non-certified staff resignations and hirings. They are also expected to revise and approve the hiring of extra duty/volunteer service staff members. To see the full agenda, visit bit.ly/2LWMHzI.
