School board discusses annual audit, pool

Posted: Friday, Oct 12th, 2012

School news

EVANSTON ó Uinta County School Board No. 1 members discussed their annual audit during their Oct. 9 regular session. Any school receiving federal monies in the amount of $500,000 or more per year must, by law, conduct an independent audit.

Highlights this year included the districtís first-ever videoconference during the meeting, with the independent auditor, and a report of over $39 million in revenue for the school district.

It was reported the school district saved $1.3 million by operating below budget, with a carryover of $4 million. The audit will be reviewed and any questions concerning the work will be presented to the auditor at a later date.

Board members were informed the high school pool is filled, heated and swimmers are using it. Most of the maintenance is completed and the pool is ready to go.

The information follows concerns earlier in the school year that possible problems with the pool would keep it closed down, possibly permanently. Those issues have since been resolved.

During a recess for the executive session, facilities director Dan Selleroli told the Herald the demolition of the old high school, including all paving, sprinkler systems and lawn planting, must be completed by Nov. 16, according to their contract. He said the demolition, which began Oct. 1, is on schedule.

In other business, the school board reviewed and approved all but one action policy presented concerning non-discrimination, harassment and superintendent assessment.

Also on the agenda was a motion to approve the technology equipment excess for all schools. The equipment listed was too old or out-of-date to be used any longer. It was approved that these items be removed from the schools and disposed of properly.

Further discussion on a safety diving harness and a dry board for the EHS pool revealed the insurance carrier simply will not cover the liability for these items. Further investigation into the problem is expected.

The last item discussed during Tuesday nightís meeting was the last home game of the season for the Evanston football team. The game was rescheduled and will start Friday, Oct. 12, at 5 p.m., with a tailgate party planned for 4 p.m.
