Plum School Notebook: Contract, Parking, Auditorium Sound

A contract with the administrative assistants and additional parking at the high school were among the items discussed at the November school board voting meeting.

Here's a roundup of items discussed at the Nov. 27 Plum School Board meeting:

Administrative assistant contract

The school board and the administrative assistant union have reached a contract agreement.

The school board approved a three-year agreement between the Plum Borough School District Educational Secretaries ESP/PSEA/NEA and the district retroactive to July 1, 2011 through June 30, 2014.

According to the Plum Advance Leader, Becky Gralewski, president of the Plum Borough School District Educational Secretaries/Educational Support Professionals, said the union voted 15-0 to approve contract terms, which mirrored a fact-finder's recommendations.

High school parking

Officials have agreed to add more parking at Plum High School.

The board hired Pugliano Construction Inc. for the PHS Event Overflow Parking Project in the amount of $45,735. Work on the project began today, Dec. 4.

Auditorium sound system

The high school auditorium sound system needs to be repaired.

The board hired Accent Electronics Systems Integrators for emergency repair work to the PHS Auditorium sound system in the amount of $17,135.

The system is about 10 years old, according to administration. Board members said if the system isn't fixed, it could create problems with upcoming events.

Practice Field

Officials are looking into developing a practice sports field behind the new George Pivik Elementary School. The board agreed to solicit proposals for the project, which would include grading and seeding the land.
