The annual budget for Columbia schools tops the agenda for the Columbia Board of Education’s meeting today.
Superintendent Phyllis Chase will give a report to the board about the 2004-05 fiscal budget and an update on planning for the 2005-06 budget. The board will meet at 7 p.m. today at the administration building, 1818 W. Worley St.
The board will receive a comprehensive annual financial report prepared by the district’s business office.
Other discussion items include:
- Consideration of construction bids for Rock Bridge High School’s bleacher flooring.
In April, voters approved a bond issue to replace the wood flooring in the north bleachers of the high school’s stadium.
According to district reports, the contractor with the lowest bid did not meet bid specifications, and the high school administration is recommending the board accept the next lowest bid to proceed with the renovations.
- Susan Robinson, coordinator of school district health services, will present a review of programs, activities and priorities for the schools health services department.
- Board members will also discuss filing procedures for the coming school board elections. Three positions will be open.
