Operations facility construction nixed


Because the district has decided to stay with the current transportation and maintenance facilities, the board formally approved rejection of the $275,000 bid from RLR Enterprises, Inc., of Wheatland and the bid of $200,000 from MCP, LLC, of DeWitt for the former Krieger property on 11th Street.

The board approved sale of a no-longer-used 5,000-gallon LP tank at the transportation site. Possible sale price is $3,000 to $5,000.

As per board policy, counselors Carl Small and Katie Burgmeier were appointed as Level I investigators. The DeWitt Police Department and the Clinton County Sheriff’s Office were appointed Level II investigators.

Peterson reviewed the Teach Iowa statewide job posting and application program. He said the program has been revamped. Most applications are done online, but a paper form can be used.

Central High School Principal George Pickup said there were about 550 students enrolled at the high school, with more new students than those leaving.

A number of personnel changes were approved. Employed were Brianne Beuter as assistant high school speech coach at $851; Jessica Rooks as a second-grade teacher at BA step 1, $31,593; Amber Finnesand as a first-grade teacher at BA step 1, $31,593; Jen Froeschle as an Ekstrand teacher associate at $11.28 per hour; Daniel Selzer as part-time high school custodian at $15.60 per hour; Kirk Machovec as seventh-grade assistant football coach at $1,986; Collin Ellis as head boys golf coach at $2,553; and the middle school drama position will be split between Hannah Totten and Brittany Manning at $993 apiece.

The board accepted the resignations of Adam Beck as .58 general music teacher at the intermediate/middle schools; Adam Grell from assistant varsity baseball coach; Morgan Burbach from assistant varsity girls track coach; and Dee Dau from middle school custodian. Dau will be replaced by Dayna McReynolds at $16 per hour.

Ann Marie Peterson was recalled as a teacher associate at $11.28 per hour, and the hours of transportation associate Shawn Everett were increased.
