The East Baton Rouge Parish School Board Regular Meeting is scheduled for Thursday, February 18th at 5:00 pm. The meeting will be held at the Instructional Resource Center on South Foster Drive, which is next door to 1050 S. Foster Drive where meetings are usually held. The usual meeting room is currently undergoing a $100,000 renovation, including new lighting, TV monitors and cosmetic changes to the room, according to The Advocate.
There are several items on the consent agenda, but they will be passed with one motion unless a Board member requests a discussion. Staff from the Broadmoor Elementary School Replacement Project are seeking authorization to issue a Request for Qualifications to seek proposals to provide Architectural Design Consulting services. There are also several grants seeking approval for McKinley High, Scotlandville High, Claiborne Elementary School and Bernard Terrace Elementary.
There is also a request for approval to add Wednesday, November 23rd as a holiday for all 12-month employees. An East Baton Rouge Parish School System Test Security Policy is also to be considered for approval. An agreement with Cox Louisiana Telecom L.L.C is seeking to enter into a contract with Superintendent Drake for a Voice Over Internet Telephone System for the entire East Baton Rouge Parish School System.
