The construction of a new restroom facility next to the concession stand at the Crestline Exempted Village School’s stadium area was one of the updates on the agenda for the school board Tuesday evening.
The board approved the $200,000 restroom project that will allow bids and contracts to progress in the near future so that the restrooms will be up and running by late September, or by the third football game of the new season. Seven new stalls for the guys will be included in the project as well as seven new stalls for females and one handicap accessible restroom.
“This is a project that has been discussed for quite some time, and is part of the overall process of getting all of our facilities on one site. We’re almost there and we haven’t been able to get all of the other athletic facilities out here and this is another important part of that,” said Crestline resident John McDonough.
The board also approved an extended contract for athletic director Ben Hocker until July 31, 2017.
“I want to commend him for his efforts,” said board member Jim Glauer.
Superintendent Noreen Mullens went over policy updates that were later approved by the board. Some of the updates included student transportation, attendance and voice recordings. Included in the policies was one that notes that a staff member may not give rides in their vehicles to students.
The board adjourned into executive session to discuss the employment of a new employee as well as the legal boundaries and sale of the old football stadium property.
