He gave the Board a copy of what the floor will look like when finished. Supt. Johnson said that Joe Gravelle gave 2 new basketball goals for the high school. Supt.

He signed a substantial completion list for things to be completed at Fort Necessity School. They should be completing the punch list soon. Supt. Johnson did announce that Bo Davis retired and we now have Shaun Fortenberry and Michael Cooks taking over. Supt. Johnson did announce that the tract will be bid on the 21st. Board Members will get a bid tally when the bid comes in. Mr. Davis asked about getting a tree removed from the Gilbert campus. This project has been scheduled. Mr. Eubanks adjourned the Maintenance Committee.

Mrs. Alaina Nichols called the Finance Committee to order. Mrs. Boquet reported to the Board that in their packet Board Members they have a debt schedule. It shows how much was borrowed and how much is paid back. We pay interest twice a year and principal once a year. The school board has to stick to this debt payment schedule. The last payment is November 2026. The other pages show what has been spent out of our special revenue funds. This is our bond issue money and renovation fund. This is what has been spent for all the renovations projects. We have purchased buses and paid the contractors out of these funds. Board Members has also a financial report for the month of October. Ms. Boquet said that the November supplement is increased from last year. This is paid from the General Fund. Architects get 7% of the total bid cost of the projects. Supt. Johnson stated that in the Board’s packet it has a scheduled timeline for the upcoming tax election. This tax brings in a 1.2 million and it is used for maintenance and operations. Mrs. Nichols adjourned the Finance Committee meeting.

President Kelly, Board Members and Superintendent Johnson went over each item on the agenda. The FPHS band may come and perform for the Board at the December 3rd meeting. Mr. Davis from the Baskin School group came and spoke to the Board about saving the old Baskin School. He said there are grants and tax credits that may be possible to get. He is asking the Board for a cooperative endeavor with the School Board until May to give their contractors a chance to see what needs to be done and to allow some clean up of the Baskin School. This group will provide a statement of insurance and basically a plan of action for the Baskin group. Louisiana Perseverance Alliance is the name of Mr. Davis’s group. It was asked that the Cooperative Endeavor be sent to the School Board so they will know what it will say and also asked that he sends a copy of the insurance. Mr. Davis said this would basically give their group the right to go onto the school campus to investigate the site and do some minor clean up. Mr. Bryan asked who he meant by his group. There is a cost associated with this endeavor but the Louisiana Perseverance Alliance would be responsible for it. This is at no cost to the School Board. A list of names was asked to be given so the School Board will know exactly who will be on school site. Mr. Danny Davis asked what they plan to do with the building if they do get it fixed up. It was reported that it can be an event center. The cooperative endeavor will be until May, 2020. President Kelly recognized Dr. Jacqueline Johnson and a hall of famer from Southern Univ. for tennis. Dr. Johnson asked that an item be placed on the agenda that would allow Board Members to attend the LSBA conferences and be reimbursed for their expenses. Ms. Boquet did state that the Franklin Parish travel expenses is different from the State’s travel guide.

When this is done rock will be put in its place. In front of the baseball facility there is a place not paved. This is for drainage or water valves. A metal frame will build around this to prevent damage to valves and Mr. McMurry will also take care of this project. The bid came in for the track and with the alternate added was $325,000.00 with Gentry Construction. Board had given permission to accept bid at an early meeting if price was withing budget. The boiler room at the high school is no longer needed and this has almost been completely cleaned out. This room can be used for storage. Concrete need to be poured near the Ag. Building. Weather has held up this project. At Gilbert School, the dead tree has been removed. The other tree to be removed is on hold until Entergy does its part. Some of the limbs are close to the power lines. Also, at Gilbert School near the cafeteria, some rock will be removed and replaced with dirt and grass planted to make this are look better. Mr. McMurry is doing all of the dirt work for us at the schools. At Crowville School the only listed to do is leveling the playground. Dirt work will be done at this school also. A change order is to be coming to renovate the kitchen and bathroom areas at the Central Office.
