The Grand Coulee Dam School District board approved the resignations of Gary Darnold as 8th grade girls basketball coach at the Middle School and Brandon Byers as Lake Roosevelt’s head baseball coach. The board also approved the appointment of Randy Bowman as lead maintenance person for the district.
The school board approved a contract with Fulcrum, a consulting company that did an air quality project at Center School for the district, and a hazardous material project at Wright Elementary, to work with IRS Environmental on the abatement of hazardous material during the demolition of Wright School. The agreement is for $9,000. The board felt that an extra set of eyes during the critical abatement of materials would help guarantee that nothing would go wrong during the work.
The school board adopted its budget for the 2012-13 school year. The general fund of the budget is $8,690,919; the associated student body fund is $204,008; the capital projects fund is $31,007,000; and the transportation fund is $167,652.
