On Friday, the Board of Education voted on the issue of Title 1 rental space. The Board voted to rescind the contract from Catapult for the rental of their trailers. This was based the fact that there is insufficient funds to pay for both the Catapult trailers and the other rentals in the Mosdos. As such, the Board voted to allocate the available funds to be spread at an even percentage of the total appraised value for both trailers and classrooms.
This means, that if for example should the total appraised value will be 1 million dollars and the available funds is $700,000, each rental would be paid for 70% of the total appraised value. If this is not accepted by any of the parties, it will revert back to the RFP requirement that each provider to provide space at their expense.
The Board also took action with regard to admissions and residency requirements. The State Statue that requires 4 pieces of residency documentation will be strictly enforced. In addition, a plan will be presented at the next meeting detailing the central admission location plan and the plan for enforcement of residency requirements. TLS.
I don’t know a whole lot about renting classrooms, but if the BOE can rescind a contract, why can’t they cancel other contracts that are too expensive – specifically Administrators who get benefits way out of line, and lump-sum sick-day payouts when they leave the system?
