No taxpayer money to be used for multi-purpose center.

North Canton City Schools Board of Education

Thursday meeting

KEY ACTION: Approved the construction of a multi-purpose facility at North Canton Memorial Stadium by ICS Imhoff Construction Services at a cost of $685,881 during a special morning board meeting.

DISCUSSION: Superintendent Jeff Wendorf reiterated that funds for the building come from community donations and will use “no taxpayer money.”

Wendorf said the donations for the facility are close to $1 million dollars. ICS Imhoff Construction submitted the lowest bid of seven proposals the district received.

OTHER ACTION:


Adopted the name Stark County Career Compact that serves Jackson Local, Plain Local, Lake Local and North Canton City schools. The compact has been known by two names, including the Plain Local CTPD and the Stark County Career Compact, which has caused confusion. Stark County Career Compact is the original name.
Approved Todd Dannemiller as a seasonal worker in the technology department, effective June 4 at $9.75 per hour. Wendorf said Dannemiller helped out last summer and is “an extra hand for working with the technology over the summer months.”
Accepted a $200,000 donation from the Steve and Lisa Gregory family to be used for the athletic facilities.
Approved purchasing computers and related materials for the video productions classroom from CDW-G for $33,000 with funds coming from the Career Technical Education weighted funds.
Authorized the purchase of permanent bleachers for Jerry Goodpasture Stadium from Dant Clayton for $114,563. The bleachers will be for the softball field and no taxpayer money will be used. Funding will come from softball boosters and athletic funds.
Approved purchasing laptop replacements for staff from CDW-G along with docking stations and network media streaming adapters for $515,390 coming from permanent improvement funds. The purchase includes 290 laptops and docking stations and networking equipment. The laptops and docking stations being replaced are five years old.

UP NEXT: Meets at 6 p.m. June 20 in the media room at Hoover High School.
