New lockers ahead for Delton Kellogg High School
As a result of the successful bond request in May, Delton Kellogg High School will be getting new lockers next week.
The current lockers have been in place since the building's construction in the 1970s, Superintendent Kyle Corlett said at Monday’s board of education meeting. The installation of the new lockers will take place next Monday and Tuesday.
During the meeting, Corlett also informed the board that Delton Kellogg senior Jonathon Gherardi plans to dedicate his Eagle Scout project toward fixing up the middle school courtyard.
Gherardi plans to trim trees and place a few new benches, too. In Corlett’s words, Gherardi will “really make the place look nice.”
The school board met in closed session for Corlett's evaluation and “found him effective for the third year in a row,” according to the superintendent.
In other business, the board approved:
• The 2018-19 financial audit presented at the October meeting.
• The notification of West Michigan Risk Management regarding its consideration of bids for insurance.
• A resolution in support of participation in the Reading Now Network.
• The district’s emergency plans.
• The hiring of hiring of coaches Jessica Staton, middle school cheer; Mike Powell, assistant high school varsity girls' basketball; and Carter Howland, freshman boys' basketball.
