Greeneville Schools To Buy, Lease New Computers

Students and teachers in the Greeneville City School System will have aging computer equipment replaced with new laptops in the coming year, following action on Thursday by the Board of Education.

Board members also approved the addition of a part-time special education assistant and considered some policy revisions on first reading.

Board members unanimously approved the purchase of 180 computers for student use.

The devices will replace existing computers that are 10 years old, assistant director for administration Beverly Miller said.

Hal Henard, EastView, Tusculum View, and Highland Elementary schools will receive 25 laptops each.

Greeneville High School will receive 50 units. Greeneville Middle School will receive 30 devices. Total cost of the computers is $98,494.

TEACHERS' COMPUTERS

A lease agreement for 250 computers for city schools' teachers was also approved unanimously.

Miller said the lease totals $150,67.50, which will be paid over three years in annual payments of $52,215.62.

At the end of the lease period, the system has a buyout option to purchase the computers for total cost of $1 for all 250 devices.

Miller said the school system has participated in such cyclical leases for a number years as a method of refreshing aging technology.

PART-TIME ASSISTANT

Board members approved a part-time special education assistant position for Hal Henard Elementary School.

The individual will work with special needs students on behavior modification in an effort to help them remain in regular classrooms as much as possible.

Funds for the position are included in the fiscal year 2014 budget.

POLICY REVISIONS

Board members discussed a number of board policy revisions for consideration on first reading.

Among those approved was a change to the Emergency Preparedness Plan which addresses changes to state law regarding safety drills.

The changes, in response to the December 2012 shooting in Newtown, Conn., require that a drill for intruders be conducted within the first 30 days of each school year.

Another policy revision approved on first reading complies with changes on the state level that will prevent school districts from barring homeschooled students from trying out for athletic teams.

MAY FINANCIAL REPORT

The board heard and approved an update on the May financial statement.

Revenue for the month totaled $523,011.22.

Director of Schools Dr. Linda Stroud reported year-to-date revenues as $21,904,101.34.

Year-to-date expenditures totaled $20,928,450.43.

"Sales tax, basically, is flat, year-to-date," Stroud reported to the board.
