Mrs. Alaina Nichols called maintenance committee to order. Mr. Gullatt reported that nothing of importance has come to his attention. He did note that the lights in the conference room are repaired. It was reported that a delivery truck got stuck at FPHS. Mr. Kelly reported that the bus lot fence needs attention. We have requested gravel for a few bus turn-around. It will be delivered when the weather permits. With no more to report Mrs. Nichols adjourned the maintenance committee meeting.

Dr. Jacqueline Johnson called the Finance Committee Meeting to order. Mrs. Boquet was not present for the agenda meeting. She is requesting a finance committee meeting on Monday, March 2, 2020 at 4:30 p.m. With the finance committee set for next Monday, Dr. Johnson adjourned the finance committee meeting.

President Kelly, Superintendent Gullatt and Board Members went over and discussed each item on the proposed agenda. Mr. Jordan Riggs addressed the Board concerning “School Info App”. This app is for a mass communication solution between the school system and parents. This will notify parents of emergency situations, school news, info and resources to parents. This app will also update the parish school board web-site. This company is based in Ruston and it currently works with more than 2,000 schools and districts throughout the United States and Canada. They have a team of 25 or more employees. We told Mr. Riggs to get all his information to Mr. Reagan, Federal Program Supervisor. We will use federal funds to purchase this app. This app can be customized to our needs and only purchase one component or multi-components of this app. The Board will take this up at a later date after all the information is collected and the cost of this app. Mrs. Sartin, Director of Head Start gave her presentation on Head’s Start’s grant renewal application for the 2020-21 gave Board Members an in-service on the ERSEA Policy Revision. Mr. Joe Walters, Sales Tax Collector for Franklin Parish reported on the next item. This is for a contract between the School Board and the Revenue Recovery Group (RRG). The contract in place is over 30 years. The RRG has pulled in close to 2.2 million dollars for Franklin Parish at a cost of $500,000. Mr. Walters said that there is move in the State to take over the collection of all Sales Tax state wide. The State will collect the tax and they will have 45 days before the parish receives their tax. We are collecting close to 1.3 million a month. Board Members were given a copy of the proposed contract. Also on the agenda is to purchase wind-screens and nets for the Franklin Parish tennis courts. Mrs. Ann McIntrye has requested help with the up-keep of these tennis courts. Our parish students do use these courts. Board Members were also given Policy Updates to be laid over for 30 days. Superintendent Gullatt is requesting to change the Head Football Coach from an 11-month position to a 12-month position. He said this is necessary to attract quality people. During the President’s Report Mr. Danny Davis also brought up the issue of travel for the Central Office personnel. He is questioning why all personnel would be absent at the same time. He was concerned about if an emergency came up who could handle that emergency. Superintendent Gullatt said he would take care issue in the future. He said it would next to impossible to approve travel a month in advance. Some meetings are not even called that far in advance. He will make sure that a chain of command is in place before he is out of the office.
