* voted to amend the action taken at the April 8, 2024, board meeting to modify the purchase price from $33,995 to $38,697 for a 2024 Ford Explorer from Hillsboro Ford

* learned that due to an expected increase in kindergarten student enrollment for next year, USD 410 plans to have three sections of kindergarten instead of two. As a result, a higher nonresident student capacity is recommended for kindergarten. The board amended the nonresident student capacity to reflect this.

* approved the purchase of 125 Chromebooks and Google Chrome OS Management Licenses from

Twotrees Technologies, LLC for $38,000.

* approved the base and alternate bid from DCS Services for the gym curtains project for $47,099.11 from Czarniecki Construction Inc. and Elcon Services Inc.

* heard an update on the summer bond projects.

* heard a KSHSAA report from board member Rod Koons who wondered if people were aware that any student who transfers to a new school has to sit out of competing in any varsity sport for 18 weeks. This could impact those who take advantage of the new nonresident student policy where students are allowed to apply to attend schools outside of their district.
