Getting more students involved in instrumental and vocal music has been on the minds of Clinton School District officials, who for the past 3 1⁄2 months have been trying to determine why more students aren’t engaging themselves with the programs offered in grades six through 12.

At Monday’s school board meeting, Curriculum Director John Jorgensen will present the findings of a study on the matter that was conducted by him and a committee of music instructors and a school board member.

The board also will finalize a capital projects list that includes plans for the next five years. The 2012-2013 list will be considered by the board for approval Monday night.

Other business will include the consideration of change orders necessary for the Clinton High School Phase I addition, bids for the removal of asbestos at two houses, one at 1400 13th Ave. North and the other at 801 S. Eighth St., and bids for demolition of the two houses.

The board also will accept a $300 donation, of which $100 apiece will be given to the Bluff, Whittier and Jefferson Library Resource Centers, from Vivi Smith. Last month, Smith donated to the LRC at Eagle Heights Elementary School. Also, an anonymous donation of $2,000 has been given to CHS for the establishment of a “Hall of Fame” recognition.

The board also will go into closed session to hold a negotiations strategy meeting.
