Knoxville School Board meets Monday


Knoxville —

REPRESENTATIVE year term on the IASB Board of Directors.  Joan
Corbin, a member of the Pella Board of Education is the only announced candidate.
RECOMMENDATION: Cast a ballot for Joan Corbin to serve a three-year 
term on the IASB Board of Directors.
Motion _______________ 2nd ________________ 
13.  CONSTRUCTION PROGRESS REPORT Dr. Flack will give a short progress report on the
auditorium project.  Board members may want to 
discuss “signage” for the auditorium.  Should the facility be designated “Knoxville High School Auditorium”, “Knoxville Performing Arts Center”, or something else?  Some members of the design committee feel “Knoxville Performing Arts Center” gives the impression that this is truly a community facility.  The “name” given to the facility will have an impact on the size of the letters used at the south and north entries.
14.  REPORTS FROM IASB CONVENTION AND Board members may want to share information from
DMACC MEETING sessions attended at the IASB Convention and/or 
from the meeting they attended at Norwalk, where we 
heard a presentation about the Southridge DMACC Career Academy.
15.  LEGISLATIVE ISSUES Dr. Flack will share a little information about 
educational issues that may come up during the 2013 session of the Iowa Legislature.  The most important of those issues is funding, especially allowable growth. 
16.  CONSIDER AND APPROVE ARCHITECTURAL SVPA Architects and KJWW Engineering have 
AND ENGINEERING SERVICES submitted a proposal for architectural and

COOLING TOWER REPLACEMENT tower at the high school.  SVPA’s proposed fee is
$8,800.  KJWW’s proposed fee is $10,00 for 
engineering of the tower and $2,500 for evaluation
cooling requirements for the high school gym.  A copy of the proposal will be available at the meeting.
