DISTRICT’S OFFICIAL NEWSPAPER FOR district’s official newspaper for legal publications.
Motion ________________ 2nd _______________
16.  SCHEDULE FOR HOLDING CLASSES DUE TO According to the 2012-13 calendar that was 
WEATHER CANCELLATIONS adopted last year, the schedule for making up 
cancellations due to inclement weather is:
Make-up for December 20 - Classes will be held Friday, January 11, with a three-hour early dismissal to provide end-of-semester work time for teachers.
Make-up for December 21 - Classes will be held Monday, February 18 (originally scheduled as a full-day for professional development), with a three-hour early dismissal and professional development scheduled until 6:30.
A third cancellation will be made up April 19, following the same schedule as on February 18.
Additional cancellations will be made up in June.
17.  APPROVE PURCHASE OF SOFTBALL We received quotes from three companies for a
SCOREBOARD softball scoreboard:
- Fair-Play - 28’ scoreboard ($10,500); installation ($5,900);
- Daktronics - 27’ scoreboard ($14,000 - $15,000); installation extra;
- NEVCO - 28’ scoreboard ($12,764); installation extra.
RECOMMENDATION: Approve the purchase of a Fair-Play, 28’ softball
scoreboard from Iowa Direct Equipment Appraisal; $10,500, plus $5,900 for installation.  Jeff Sinnard felt that the quoted installation cost would be less than if we have to purchase the steel, pay for concrete, and rent equipment to lift the scoreboard and put it in place.  As of January 10, $25,000 has been deposited in the softball account.
