The Crestline School Board discussed approving the architectural plans for the new concession stand restroom project for the football stadium during Monday night’s meeting.

The board approved plans to move forward with the architectural plans. The entire project is estimated to cost $200,000, but these funds will need to be collected or raised in order to move forward with the construction of the project.

Board members also discussed purchasing bricks to go near the restrooms in the concession stands that would be made into memorial bricks, where people could engrave their names. In addition to the bricks, they were planning on the artwork of a bulldog to be designed on the side of the building as well. The cost of the bricks and the artwork would be in addition to the $200,000 project price and the cost of these items will also need to be raised or donated or purchased by a third party.

The board changed spring break to the end of the third set of nine weeks for each year. This change was approved because of how Easter falls on a different weekend every year.

The board also approved supplemental contracts for JV softball coach Megan Eshelman and assistant varsity softball coach Larry Booth.

It was brought to the boards attention that K-5 grades were being tracked for attendance. Previously only 67 percent of the children were attending school. Then after notifying the parents, 81 percent of the children are currently attending school. The goal is to reach 90 percent attendance.
