Borrowing is topic Tuesday for board|
The Antigo board of education is expected to approve short-term borrowing, an annual occurrence timed to meet cash flow needs, when it meets Tuesday.
The board will convene for a relatively light agenda at 7 p.m. in the media tech room at the high school. A reception for new teachers is slated for 6:30 p.m.
With no Committee on Instruction meeting in September, the focus will mainly be to ratify actions taken by the Operations Committee earlier this month.
The board is expected to follow the Operations Committee’s lead and approve short-term borrowing, with an amount to be determined at Tuesday’s session.
The borrowing is traditionally done in the fall to meet cash flow needs as the district awaits property tax and state aid payments. District projections are suggesting a figure of $1.8 million.
The board will also review the technology plan, a two-page document developed by a special committee that focuses on technology’s use as a tool to support and enhance student learning.
The plan also lays out how technology needs will be purchased, student access, including carts of Chromebook tablets available for student use in the classroom, and professional development.
The board will also ink a series of agreements with outside agencies and organizations. They include:
—The Boys & Girls Club of Langlade County for Middle School enrichment activities funded through the 21st Century Community Learning Center grant.
—the Family Corner Resource Center for parent outreach for four-year-old kindergarten students.
—and the Antigo Youth Hockey Association for ice time on the multi-purpose building rink.
In personnel matters, the board is expected to fill positions or dishwasher server at the Middle School and library clerk at North Elementary School.
Following the open meeting, the board will reconvene in closed session to discuss the purchase or disposition of property. Action, if any, will be announced at the conclusion of the evening.
