Burbank Unified School District Board Meeting Preview

April 18, 2007

ON THE AGENDA

The following items are scheduled to be discussed at Thursday's school board meeting:

REMAINING MODERNIZATION FUNDS

Steve L. Bradley, assistant superintendent of business services for the district, will report on the remaining funds available for work on four schools still undergoing modernization construction.

Available funds for the four remaining projects are estimated to cover the expenditures with more than $7.8 million to be left over in the budget when construction is complete.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Board members will hear the report. There is no action to be taken on this item.

BASEBALL FIELD UPGRADE

The Baseball Boosters Club at Burbank High School proposes a lengthening of the center field of their baseball diamond by 45 feet.

Costs for this extension are estimated to total $350,000 and to be covered by the district outside of other athletic-field projects in conjunction with the city.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The board may reject this proposal as Craig Jellison, the district's chief facilities officer, recommends trustees not commit to it because of size constraints and possible affect on surrounding fields.

SECURITY CAMERA INSTALLATION

The board will consider approving the installation of security cameras at John Burroughs and Burbank High Schools at the estimated total cost of $108,020 for both sites.

These costs include most of the security camera coverage on the fields at both schools, except for work that will need to be completed when pending renovations on both fields at both sites are completed.

WHAT TO EXPECT

The board will likely approve this proposal unless they feel approval should wait until the field projects are completed.

LIBRARY SYSTEM PURCHASE

The board will consider approving the purchase of a new library automation system, with costs not to exceed $37,379.96. The system would assist in functions such as cataloging and tracking usage of books.

WHAT TO EXPECT

This will most likely be approved.
