Kilburn to give capital project update

JOHNSTOWN — Greater Johnstown School District Superintendent Patricia Kilburn will provide a capital project update at the Board of Education’s special meeting at 6:30 p.m. Thursday in Johnstown High School’s Performing Arts Center.

Officials connected with the ongoing $39.6 million project said last month it was going well and within budget. Officials said students and teachers returning to school this morning will notice some changes in their schools, externally and internally.

The board on Thursday is also expected to hear a report on last week’s Facilities Committee.

In other board business, Kilburn is expected to introduce new staff to the board.

A host of personnel items are on the agenda, including resignations and appointments of non-teaching staff, resignation of a business teacher, and probationary appointments of two teaching assistants.

The board will consider approving a milk quote from Skiff’s Dairy. The district expects to spend $45,000 on milk for the new school year.

Board members will also consider approving a bread bid from Bimbo Bakeries. The district intends to spend $11,500 with the bakery.

A donation of $2,500 from Walmart to Warren Street Elementary School will be considered by the board for approval.

The board will mull refund of a taxes overpayment for a property on Frasier Avenue.

Amendments to resolutions authorizing expenditures for two schools are also on Thursday’s agenda.

The board will review an amendment to a resolution authorizing a $16,700 expenditure to replace air conditioning at Pleasant Avenue Elementary School from the property loss reserve. Board members will also consider an amendment to a prior resolution authorizing expenditure of up to 14,091 from the reserve fund for repair and replacement of the telephone and public announcement system at Glebe Street Elementary School.
