7.02 Approval to Participate in the Pottawattamie Promise Initiative
As we heard from Pete Tulipana and Kathleen Rapp (IWF) at our last meeting, they are extending an invitation to Lewis Central to participate in the Pottawattamie Promise Initiative. This initiative would provide for free tuition/room & board at IWCC for approximately 35 LC students. The initiative for us would begin this spring with the selection of High School sophomores.

7.03 Technology Purchase
As part of our efforts for improving instruction through our Teacher Leadership Program, we have supported the use of digital recording classroom instructional events as evidence teachers and instructional coaches use to examine and reflect on instructional practices in classrooms and model classroom labs. We have found that the memory capacity of our present iPads are woefully inadequate for supporting video production. These new devices will replace the 16BG devices coaches have now that will be repurposed for use with students in classrooms (Kreft). iPads can only be purchased by schools directly from Apple, Inc.
Apple, Inc. ‐ $11,019.00
• 20 – PGTX2LL/A Personalized iPad Air 2 Wi‐Fi 128GB ‐ $9.580.00 ($479.00 ea.)
• 6 – HHX92ZM/A Logitech Canvas Keyboard Case for iPad Air 2 – Black ‐ $599.70 ($99.95 ea.)
• 14 – HH5W2PA/B Logitech hinge Case for iPad Air 2 – Black ‐ $839.30 ($59.95 ea.)
We are treating these purchases as bundled product and will use PPEL for this purchase.

7.04 Approval of Bid for Demolition of bleachers (Football Field)
Jeff sent plans to seven different contractors. We received 2 bids:
M. E. Collins $23,800
Construct, Inc. $95,000

The bleachers on the visitor’s side of the football field will be torn down and new bleachers will be part of the track reconstruction project. The new bleachers will be aligned to the center of the football field and will be placed further away from the track per safety requirements. This project will be paid for using the state sales tax monies.
