After which Board President, Nick Harris asked those present if there were any comments from the public. Finding no public comments, the board moved to hear about a proposed purchase of a new 2017 bus. The reason they were coming to the board now was that the in October 2018 models will cost an additional $1200.   Baldwin High currently has Thomas and International buses in its fleet. According to the fleet maintenance, they have more Thomas buses then they do International buses, yet they spend "a lot more" on repairs for the Internationals than they do for all the Thomas' combined. The board unanimously approved the purchase of one Thomas from Midwest Bus Sales in Bonner Springs, KS.
In other business the board:

  • rejected a bid from Midwest Lasar Leveling for work to be done on the ballfields. The bids will go out again for work to be done next summer.
  • approved an amendment to the GAU regarding the health insurance fringe benefit.
  • heard that the Kansas Supreme Court is not in a hurry to render a decision in the ongoing school finance case. However, the board is expecting a decision in October.
