AAPS Trustees Approve Pioneer A/C Units; Budget is on Track

Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education regular meeting (February 22, 2017): Forsythe Middle School, 1655 Newport Rd

The Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) Board of Education (BOE) trustees will meet for a regular meeting, beginning at 7:00 PM this evening.

Community High School junior Clarence Collins will present in recognition of Black History Month.

The trustees will hear two information items. Superintendent Jeanice Swift will give an overview of this year’s AAPS National African American Parent Involvement Day (NAAPID) events, which occurred on Monday, February 13. Chief Financial Officer Jill Minnick will give January’s monthly budget monitoring report.

No first briefings are scheduled.

The Pioneer High School A/C Unit Bid Recommendation is up for a second briefing. The district is looking to replace the two rooftop unites installed above Pioneer’s cafeteria. Currently, one unit does not work and the other unit is “close to failure.”  The recommendation is for the bid to go to WJ O’Neil Company for an amount of $191,840. The Board will vote on the recommendation at tonight’s meeting.

AAPS Board Mulls School Start Time Survey Results; Allen Elem Set to Reopen April 12

Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education regular meeting (February 8, 2017): Pioneer High School, 601 W Stadium Blvd.

The Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) Board of Education (BOE) trustees will vote themselves into executive session at 5:30 PM this evening, citing attorney/client privilege. Executive sessions are closed to the public. The regular meeting begins at 7:00 PM.

Superintendent Jeanice Swift will give an update on Allen Elementary. The Allen school community has been housed in West Middle School in Ypsilanti since a broken water main flooded in August of last year.

Further information regarding high school start times will be given by Paul DeAngelis, Executive Director High School Education. He was not able to fully present the results of the ThoughtExchange survey conducted in December 2016 at the last board meeting, as the ThoughtExchange reps weren’t available to present at such a late hour.

A first briefing will be given on a Pioneer High School A/C Unit Bid Recommendation.

No second briefings are scheduled.

Board action will be taken on the annual approval of financial institutions and on a resolution on the immigration executive order. At the last regular meeting, trustee Harmony Mitchell asked the executive team to examine JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo banks, as they both support DAPL, the Dakota Access Pipeline.
