Three information items will be presented: the 2016 Graduation Rates Annual Report, the 2017/18 Budget Overview, and an update on the 2017 Sinking Fund Millage.

The trustees will hear four first briefing items. A recommendation to name the Huron High School Softball Field for Dottie Davis, Huron’s Assistant Principal and Athletic Director will be made. Recommendations will also be made for a 2015 Bond Furniture Purchase and a 2015 Bond Bus Purchase. The 2017/18 Food Service Annual Contract Review will also be presented.

A Tech Bond E-Rate Network Infrastructure Purchase will be presented as a special briefing item. That means the trustees will hear about the item tonight for the first time, then vote on the purchase tonight. Generally, items with time sensitivity are brought forward for special briefings.

There are no second briefings scheduled.

Voting tonight will be on the Tech Bond E-Rate Network Infrastructure Purchase.
