BUDGET DISCUSSION: Mr. Harold Rushing presented a budget overview of requested increases for 2008 - 2009. Key items were presented to the board. The board agreed that the proposed 3% raise for the non-certified employees and the $500.00 raise for the certified employees was preferred, provided the district could stay within the budget for the year. Other priority items discussed on the proposed budget included an increased number of teachers and staff for each attendance center, TST increases and new construction projects . Board Member Fountain pointed out that Jackson County School District received an increase in MAEP funds this year. Mr. Rushing stated that not all districts received an increase. The overall proposed district budget was presented. Each item was discussed and agreed that the numbers appeared to be acceptable. Mr. Rushing stated that the completed budget will be presented at the next board meeting.

RENEWAL OF GENERAL LIABILITY, AUTOMOBILE AND EDUCATOR'S LEGAL LIABILITY INSURANCE: Laura McCool presented the Renewal Rates for General Liability, Automobile, and Educator's Legal Liability. Premiums were quoted for a three month and 15 month period. The option for the three month period included a penalty for a short term policy. The 15 month policy, offered by MSBA was the most affordable.

f.y.i. Ms. McCool also presented an update on the proposed Safety Manual. The next safety meeting will be held on July 14, 2008 with the safety representatives from each school. The results will of the meeting will be presented at the July 24, 2008 board meeting.

TIME AND ATTENDANCE SYSTEM: Dr. Amacker presented a Time and Attendance System to be utilized district wide. Board Member Dickerson asked if a card or badge system would be more cost effective. Board Member Sims stated that it was his understanding that these machines are very sensitive and labor intensive if there were are any maintenance problems. He asked how many extra units would be kept on hand to use in the event of a malfunction of a machine. Following a discussion of the cost for each unit and the maintenance, it was decided that an alternate system should also be considered. Motion by Board Member Dickerson, second by Board Member Sims, to also consider other options, with the following vote taken,

Board Member Fountain Aye  
Board Member Turner Aye  
Board Member Tootle Aye  
Board Member Dickerson Aye  
Board Member Sims Aye  

TEAM ONE COMMUNICATIONS: Mr. Harkey and Mr. Cannington from Team One Communications presented a program with two options for bus radios. With both options there would be a radio on each bus, at the maintenance facility, and a base station in the administration office of each attendance center. The radios would have the ability to contact emergency personnel immediately. The two options discussed were a unit mounted in each bus or a portable unit for each driver. The disadvantage of the mobile units is the fact that if the bus looses power the radio will no longer operate. A portable unit will operate inside or outside the bus. Board Member Dickerson discussed the security of the bus mounted units. The disadvantage of the portable units is a unit lost by a driver. The portable units are the most affordable. These radios will provide county wide service to police, fire, as well as to the base units. These radios will communicate unit to unit. The system programming may be customized to communicate with the buses within the attendance center or district wide .

Mr. George Sholl, Director, Jackson County 911, stated that Jackson County 911 will allow the District to use their frequency at no charge at this time. There is a clause in the agreement that in the future there may be a charge for the use. Mr. Sholl suggested that Jackson County School District contact Chevron and Civil Defense to assist in funding for the purchase of the radios with the understanding that the district provides busses for emergency evacuations.

The Mississippi Wireless Communications Commission must approve the application on any purchase of communication equipment over $10,000.00.

Team One Communications offered to loan radios for the District to use before the purchase is made.

The board agreed that there is a need for these radios and asked that this item be moved forward. A decision will be made at a later date.

Mr. Brent McKey - Appeared before the board to question appraisal on a section of land located on Highway 57. Board Member Fountain and Board Member Turner advised Mr. McKey that he should have the land appraised by another appraiser. Mr. Pickett stated that the Secretary of State governs the terms of 16th Section leases.

West Jackson County Utility District: West Jackson County Utility District requested permission to install a water line on the north side of Lemoyne Blvd. on 16th Section land. The question was asked as to why the pipe needs to be located on the north side of the road. Mr. Lamey with the West Jackson County Utility District stated that the EPA requires a 10' separation between a sewer line and a water line. The sewer line is currently installed on the south side of Lemoyne Blvd. Board Member Fountain questioned what impact the water line will have on future development of the land. Jennifer Seymour with Guild Hardy stated that any revenue generated from 16th Section land will jeopardize the FEMA funding for clean up. Board Member Fountain explained to the representatives from West Jackson County Utility District that the FEMA money must be a priority. Dr. Amacker asked what would happen if there was no income generated from the water line installation. Ms. Seymour said that it is her understanding that FEMA will continue to monitor the property for 5 years after the cleanup. Jennifer Seymour will follow up with FEMA and forward the information to Dr. Amacker.

Southeastern Header Supply Pipeline: An agreement was presented to the Board stating that Jackson County School District would receive $34,950.00 for the proposed pipeline project.

Board Member Turner made a motion to accept the agreement, second by Board Member Sims, with the following vote taken,

Board Member Fountain Aye  
Board Member Turner Aye  
Board Member Tootle Aye  
Board Member Dickerson Aye  
Board Member Sims Aye  

East Central Middle School Rest Room Construction: Mr. David Hardy asked for the opportunity to investigate the possibility of a restroom attached to an existing building. The cost for a stand alone restroom will be considerably more. Mr. Hardy will look at other options and present them to the board at a later date.

Award the Bid for St. Martin High School Construction: Guild Hardy presented bids received from four contractors for the construction of St. Martin High School. The contract was awarded to W.G. Yates and Sons Construction Company, Inc. for $41,420,000.00. The project is projected to be completed in May 2010. Guild Hardy included in RFQ a "Milestone Completion Schedule" for the project. The penalties are stated in the contract for each milestone that is not completed on time. Guild Hardy will notify W.G. Yates and Sons Construction Company, Inc. of the board's decision. A contract will be drafted and delivered to W.G. Yates and Sons Construction Company, Inc. for review and then presented to Dr. Amacker for his signature. Construction should begin within 10 days. The board asked Mr. Mike Van Winkle to schedule the invitations for a ground breaking ceremony on July 24, 2008 at 3:00 p.m. at the new high school site.
