District to sell activity bus to Urban League; board approves camera contract
Following another lengthy executive session at Monday night’s School Board meeting, the board awarded a bid to Johnson Controls, Inc., for the district’s camera solution. The amount of the bid is $368,519. Superintendent Joey Haney stated after the meeting that the company will be doing full replacement of the district’s existing security cameras with upgraded units and installing additional cameras in various locations.
The board also voted to allow the superintendent to enter into a contract with the Urban League of the Upstate concerning transportation. Haney explained afterward that the group is interested in purchasing the old activity bus from the school district. The district purchased a new activity bus, which it received at the beginning of the school year.
The board voted unanimously to approve the administration’s recommendation on the nursing pay scale in the district. After that, they approved the personnel report, which included hiring Tammy West as school nurse for Foster Park Elementary, Megan McCall as student records clerk at Monarch Elementary, SFC Mark Phillips as JROTC Instructor at Union County High School. There were also three special education assistants hired. Nikki Caldwell was hired at Buffalo, and Dora Palka and Nikia Thompson were hired at Foster Park.
