CCR-1 School Board Hears Baseball Request

 CCR-1 School Board Hears Baseball Request

By Mike Scott

“I think we have an overwhelming support for adding baseball. What needs to have for us to have baseball?” CCR-1 student Derek Ryan asked the board at their June meeting, held Monday, June 16. Ryan said dozens of boys were interested in playing the sport.

Three years ago board voted against adding baseball, citing concerns with Title IX, which requires equal opportunity in sports for male and female athletes. Currently, the school would need to add a girls’ sport, such as volleyball, before adding any boys’ sports.
No decision was made.

In other business, the board:
–Voted to accept the Building Trades class bid of $10,000 from Joe and Haley Davidson.
–Discussed high school staffing needs
–Approved 0.25 credits for summer school band.
–Approved a change to 12 payments per year for employees.
–Tabled bid review of concrete for the high school parking lot.
–Reviewed bids for Middle School roofing. Bidders will be invited to July meeting to answer questions.
–Reviewed the district’s Comprehensive School Improvement Policy.
–Approved a bid from Frank Millard Company to replace two air conditioner compressors at the high school.
–Approved Frank Millard Company to provide preventive maintenance service for the air conditioning units at the middle school.
–Discussed the assets the district will receive from the dissolution of the Wyaconda School District.
–Set Monday, June 30, as a date to meet to finalize the FY 2009 budget.
