EPS board member resigning to take basketball coaching post

ENID, Okla. — The Enid Public Schools Board of Education will be one member smaller after a  meeting at 6 p.m. today at the Central Office, 500 S. Independence.

Board member Cody Lack, appointed to the school board’s Ward 5 in March 2012, will resign to take the job of assistant boys basketball coach at Enid High School. It will be the second time Lack has held the position at the high school.

On the table for the board’s consideration will be a proposed change order to the contract with Henson Construction Company for renovations to Eisenhower School. The change would subtract $21,000 from the total contract cost to recover unused hidden conditions allowance.

Board members also will discuss the single bid received for an asphalt paving repair project at Glenwood, Hayes and Monroe elementary schools.

They also will consider awarding a contract for renovations to the Administrative Services Center, the Information Technology Service Center and the Support Services Center.

A number of routine fund transfers and encumbrances are on the agenda, as well.

The board will consider several contracts.

• A contract with the Oklahoma Department of Human Services to provide meals for volunteers serving in our Foster Grandparent Program;

• A contract with Northwestern Oklahoma State University to allow clinical rotations of student nurses in Enid schools;

• An agreement with Opportunities Inc. for the lease usage of classroom space in the Carver Education Service Center for Headstart and for Enid Public Schools to serve meals to the Headstart locations in Enid;

• A contract with Louise Lewis to provide speech therapy services to Enid Public School students as a private contractor;

• A contract with Julie Thibodeau to provide instructional services to visually impaired Enid Public School students as a private contractor;

• A contract with Garfield County Alternative Education Academy for Enid Public Schools to provide meals to their students; and

• A contract with NCS Pearson Inc. to serve as an online GED testing center using Pearson’s proprietary software.

Board members will consider a request from the Enid High School select and show choirs to compete in the Bluebonnet Music Contest in San Antonio, Texas, in April.
