Simpson Elementary School Roof Replacement Approved

USD 407 BOE 1-14-20The USD 407 Board of Education met Monday evening and approved a bid to replace the roof at Simpson Elementary School.

The current roof is the original according to Superintendent Shelly Swayne.

The roof will be installed by High Plains Roofing.

Also Monday, the Board approved the purchase of a CNC plasma cutter for the Russell High School vo-ag shop.

The plasma cutter and equipment cost about $20,000, but the school district will only pay a little more than $10,000 thanks to donations from the Russell FFA Alumni, Russell Rotary Club, and the David and Pamela Reisig Memorial Fund.

Also Monday, the Board approved a proposal to add an afternoon session of preschool at Simpson this coming school year that will include a limited number of students and will not require any new staff.

In other business at the meeting, the Board approved giving stipends to special education teachers that took on additional and unexpected caseload this year.
