EVANSTON — Approval for the replacement of Evanston Middle School has finally been accepted by the state’s School Facilities Department. The Uinta County School Board gave its final approval to the plans during their March 26 work session meeting, which will allow the design phase of the project to begin this week.

The design phase is expected to take six to eight months to complete. The struggle to get approval to replace the EMS facility has been ongoing for a number of years.

In other items covered during the work session, a list of 16 administrators, all up for contract renewal, were approved by the board. The list included principals and directors covering various departments and schools within the Uinta County School District No. 1 system. A complete list of these appointments is available through the school district’s offices.

Also discussed were various methods of evaluation of how local schools and administrators are functioning. Though various methods of evaluation were discussed, no particular evaluation system was adopted or approved during the meeting.

Also approved by the board was the disposal of fixed assets. Items listed included, among other things, servers and lighting control boards, which were no longer usable by the district, or were in some way damaged.

Due to a catastrophic health issue in her family, Lisa Tolman was granted catastrophic leave from her position. Although the leave may run out, other leave time has been donated by fellow staff members, and an approval for the special needs donation for Tolman was unanimously given by the board. Board members noted Tolman is a valued employee within the district.

Approval was also given for a field trip for 10 participants from Horizon High School for a trip to Moab, Utah, to study ecology and historical geology, especially crypto biotic soils. Alex Katchuk, science teacher, sponsored the request.
