The Allamakee Community School District Board of Directors met for a brief special meeting Tuesday, March 29. A public hearing was held in regard to the tuckpointing project at the East Elementary School building, and with no verbal or written comment, the hearing was closed.
The Board addressed several personnel matters, including accepting the resignation of Ethan Adams from his vocal music position, effective at the end of this school year. The Board also accepted the resignation of Kris Walleser from her Spanish/English high school position, due to retirement. The Board approved a recommendation to transfer Traci Byrnes from first grade at West to TLC Instructional Teacher Coach and to transfer Kelli Olson from sixth grade at the Middle School to TLC Technology Integration Coach.
The Board later accepted a bid from Karr Tuckpointing for $122,151 for the tuckpointing project at East Elementary, and also accepted a bid from Strub Blacktopping for $19,950 for parking lot repair at Waterville Elementary School.
