Pulaski Community Unit District #23 October Board Meeting The Board extended Superintendent Phil Shelton's contract through the 2011-2012 school year. Brian Hinds is still in need of school bus drivers for regular routes and extra-curricular activities. Please contact the bus barn or unit office if anyone is interested. Superintendent Shelton told the Board said an energy conservation grant application is now available. He said that this is a match- ing grant for what the district will spend. His suggestion was to use this to replace the two boilers at the grade school first and then pos- sibly do the boilers at the high school. The boilers at the high school are older, but use less energy than the ones at the grade school. Approximate cost of the two grade school boilers will be $100,000 of which the grant would pay $50,000. He will have a report at available. His suggestion will be to use this to replace the gym bleachers at the high school. The districts share of these projects could be paid for with the Health Life Safety fund over the next 2-3 years. The Board voted to proceed with the Health - Life Safety Amendment to allow replace- ment of the Mt. Pulaski Grade School boil- ers.
