High Plains preps for new school year

Woodward, Okla. — The High Plains Technology Center's Board of Education will take steps to prepare for the upcoming school year during its monthly meeting on Monday, July 7.

The meeting will start at 5:30 p.m. in the HPTC Board Room.

As it is the first meeting of the new Fiscal Year, the board will take action on a number of financial matters to establish funding for the next year.

This includes acting on a number of new encumbrances for Fiscal Year 2015 as follows:

• General Fund totaling $1,211,118.51;

• Building Fund totaling $20,000;

• Payroll totaling $4,074,77.33.

The board will also address the center's Activity Fund Management Plan for FY15, as well as address the routine monthly Activity Fund report for June and the June 2014 treasurer's report.

In another step toward preparing for the new year, the board will vote to approve a FY15 organizational chart.

A couple of hiring decisions are also before the board, which will meet in executive session to discuss part-time hires as well as hiring a new full-time IT/video marketing instructor for FY15.  They will then vote on the proposed hires after returning to open session.
