Many upgrades have been implemented to systems and buildings at the Cloverdale Community School Corp. recently, but the upgrading of buildings and systems isn't over yet.
On Monday, the board unanimously approved a proposal from Havel Brothers representative Craig Martin.
Martin approached the board Monday requesting it use $215,000 from the capital projects fund to coat the elementary roof.
CCSC Supt. Carrie Milner told the board the project had been put on the back burner due to cost, but had to be done as soon as possible.
"The time is now," she said.
Martin said Havel Brothers would coat the roof with elastomeric, which should last approximately seven years.
He said the coating would be applied over the existing roof and that walkthroughs on the roof indicated a coating would be fine.
Estimates showed placing a new roof on the school would cost nearly $3 million.
Through a contracted partnership with Havel Brothers, Martin told the board Monday that the school had saved an estimated $84,000 in the first year and $85,000 in the second year.
Martin said the corporation saved nearly $111,000 last year in the agreement with the company.
Martin said Havel Brothers could start coating the roof by Aug. 28 and could be concluded by the end of October.
Cloverdale High School Assistant Principal Stacy Schroer, however, pointed out that students would be in the middle of ISTEP testing while the company was putting the coating on the roof, but Martin said noise would be at a minimum.
He also assured if the students were bothered by the noise, the company could delay the project, but not too long, as Martin told the board the coating had to be put on while temperatures were still favorable and not too cold.
Board member Don Albietz made the motion to move forward with coating the roof, with board vice president Pamelia Hepfer giving the second.
Last year, the corporation upgraded the high school roof and the corporation heating/air conditioning units.
Board member Todd Whitlock was not at Monday's meeting.
Meanwhile, the board heard an update on the criteria for denial of board consideration of student due process appeals.
Milner informed the board the state had asked the corporation to clarify its position regarding the matter, which she recommended it should decline to hear appeals of its expulsion examiner's student due process case determinations.
No action was needed regarding the matter.
