During the discussion on inventory dispositions, Willis reported that air purifiers at the high school that were scheduled for inventory, have been listed as stolen. Until they are located, the purifiers will not be listed on the system’s inventory list.

Under the Superintendent’s Report, Willis announced that the WES Multi Purpose building is in the final stages of completion and is awaiting directions on the driveway. Schneider Electric will be ready to present findings later this week and report at the November 14 board meeting.
