NORTH BALTIMORE - The school district will spend more than $42,000 this summer to purchase furniture, add sidewalks, repair flooring and reseal blacktop.
The money will come from the district's permanent improvement fund.
The major expenses include $10,000 for furniture for the art room, computer lab and sixth grade at Powell Elementary; $7,400 to extend the sidewalk by the new parking lot concrete at the middle school/high school; $5,000 to seed the new practice football field; $3,800 for electrical work in the computer room at Powell; $3,775 for carpet removal at the middle school/high school; $2,900 for floor covering for the middle school/high school gym; $1,865 to reseal the horseshoe drive at the middle school/high school; $1,000 to fix the press box roof; and $1,000 to repair the asphalt at the board office.
Also at Tuesday's school board meeting, members learned the district should end this fiscal year in the black, by almost $3,000, according to Treasurer Eve Baldwin. The district is projected to have expenses over revenue for fiscal year 2015 of $302,289.
The board also:
•    Heard results from a parent survey of the use of blizzard bags. Almost 100 parents filled out the survey, and 67 percent indicated that the blizzard bags were not a good idea and 80 percent favored make-up days during spring breaks.
•    Hired Mike Kipplen as guidance counselor and Holli Sattler as intervention specialist. Both already were employed in the district. The board also hired Adam Burris as the varsity girls basketball coach.
•    Gave Sandy Stewart a two-year contract extension as administrative assistant. It was noted with the hiring of Ryan Delaney as superintendent, this will make 10 superintendents Stewart has worked with in the district.
•    Finalized the sale of the Scout House building and surrounding property to the village for $1.
