The meeting was called to order at 7 p.m. and was adjourned at 7:40 p.m.

Master facilities plan update

Herrmann reviewed the cost of installing a sprinkler system for the two middle schools. Because this would cost $1.8 million, is not required in the code, and would not protect lives, the board decided not to add a sprinkler system. Myers gave some alternatives and their costs. They will be discussed at the next meeting. Petkac stated that each middle school will have six science rooms.

Upcoming meetings are regular board meetings on February 20 and March 6. All meetings are at 7 p.m. at the Board of Education offices.
