The Indian Lake Board of Education conducted their June meeting Monday night.
Two topics highlighted the brief agenda. Superintendent Pat O'Donnell (pictured left) announced that an emergency levy would be placed on the November ballot. The levy would generate an annual amount of $2,750,000 for a period of ten years. Unlike most levies that ask for a certain millage increase, this is a "flat rate" levy. Millage would vary over the time period as long as the annual amount is generated.
O'Donnell comments on the levy and field turf.
Discussions have begun on the possible installation of artificial field turf. The project would be entirely funded by private donations. Although O'Donnell is excited about the impact turf would have on the athletic facility, the project will remain in the exploration stage until after the hopeful emergency levy is passed in November.
In other news, the board approved participation in the Logan County Educational Service Center Virtual Learning for 2012-13. Jefferson County ESC curriculum will be used.
Several staff members had their extended service days reduced for the 2012-13 school year. High school guidance counselors and media assistants were among those that had their days cut.
The next meeting will be July 16th. The meeting time has been changed to 5:00.
