Building/Renovation project in final "punch list" stage
By JOHN SPARKS

Meeting in regular session on Monday, December 1, the board of trustees of the Hawkins Independent School District heard a report from Superintendent Dan Rose on the construction and renovation program and approved a change in the district's participation in a commodity processing consortium from Region VII to Region VIII.


Board member Wende Haney was not present.

Superintendent Rose advised trustees of continuing work by contractors on the punch list of items requiring attention as a result of the construction and renovation program that has been underway for the past year. Many of the punch list items were addressed during the Thanksgiving break. Rose said all walk throughs of the facilities have been completed. He also reported that final road paving work is expected to be done this week.

In the single action item other than approval of minutes from last month's minutes, the board agreed with the administration's recommendation to join a commodity processing consortium organized through Region VIII to be known as TIPS (The Interlocal Purchasing System). For the past several years Hawkins participated in a similar agreement organized through the Region VII Education Service Center. The cooperative provides administrative services for the acquisition of commodity foodstuff for participating school distrticts. The cooperative also structures the bidding and vendor selection processs and provides procedures for ordering, delivery and billing of the processed commodities.

A report on the participation of individual board of trustee members in continuing education programs was presented with each board member earning more than the number of required hours (9.0 hours). The totals to date are: Atteberry 20 hours; Bogard 15 house, Haney 12.5 hours; Holland 15.75 hours; Holmes 24.5 hours; Simmons 16.25 hours, and Tunnell 18 hours.a the continuing education year runs through the end of February and most board members indicated intentions to attend additional sessions before the end of the program year.

Board members were also provided with Texas Association of School Board's (TASB) most recent policy update (#84) which was discussed briefly.

The next regular meeting of the Hawkins ISD board is scheduled for Monday, January 12 at 7 p.m. This is a change from the "regular first Monday" schedule that has been the practice. A special meeting of the board may be held with 72-hour advance public notice.
