Pueblo City Schools (D60) Board of Education is scheduled to vote today on an addition to a contract with McKinstry to provide an energy savings program at four district schools.
The board is scheduled to hold a special meeting at 2 p.m. in the Arapahoe Room of the Administrative Services Center, 315 W. 11th St.
D60 has contracted with McKinstry to provide energy upgrades and efficiencies in several district buildings.
The board will take action on an addendum to the contract that will allow for McKinstry’s powerED program to be implemented in the four STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) schools — Bessemer Academy, Highland Park Elementary, Roncalli STEM Academy and Central High School.
PowerEd is a collaborative program that engages students to actively participate in methods to eliminate waste and reduce energy through changes in behavior.
In other items, the board is scheduled to vote on health insurance premiums for 2016 and a separate item on the renewal of the life insurance.
During the work session portion of the meeting, the board will get a report from Paula Chostner, director of human resources, on the district’s hiring process.
The board also will hear separate reports from Kathy Wilson, the truancy and family support specialist, on truancy reduction efforts and the procedure for reporting incidents of bullying.
