Pettisville School Board To Accept Last Building Bids
The Pettisville School Board authorized bidding for final portions of the new school at its Monday, April 4 meeting.
Bids will be accepted for demolition of approximately 60% of the current building, wrapping up and connecting the old and new buildings, landscaping, playground equipment, technology, abatement, and loose furnishings.
The district plans to complete the project this summer. Classes will begin in the new building in the fall. Policies Approved
Two new policies were approved by the board at the request of Michael Lane, high school principal.
The first policy officially bans pyramids and mounts by cheerleaders. It is in accordance with Ohio High School Athletic Association regulations.
The second policy clarifies student attendance requirements for participation in extracurricular activities.
Students will be required to attend a full afternoon of classes to participate in practice, competitions, or other extracurricular events that same day.
Exceptions will be made for funeral absences, medical or dental appointments, college visitations, or other situations. Prior approval by the superintendent is required.
The board approved a newly updated policy manual prepared for the district with the help of NEOLA, a school policy service. The new policy manual includes all policies required by law, and brings Pettisville policies in line with current state legislation and court decisions. Consumer Fair
Jason Waldvogel, elementary principal, reported that the second grade consumer fair earned over $1,000.
The money is designated to help with expenses for Maddy Lambert, an Archbold elementary school student who is undergoing treatment for cancer.
Waldvogel also reported that the school is involved in a Big Read program that celebrates the 75th anniversary of the classic book “Little House on the Prairie.”
The entire elementary is reading the book, and several activities are planned to help bring the book to life for the students.
The next board meeting is Monday, May 9, 7 pm, in the school library.–D.J. Neuenschwander
