10. Amendment to Policy 4:60, Purchases and Contracts, for the 2020-2021 School Year - (Roll Call)
As the school and district opens the 2020-2021 school year under a COVID-19 scenario it is very probable that services will need to be contracted quickly and promptly to address the needs of faculty, staff, and students.  Such services might include internet services and disinfecting/sanitizing services, and it is probable that services needed may exceed $5,000.  Policy 4:60 sets a limit that any contracted service that exceeds $5,000 needs board approval.  A temporary amendment to Policy 4:60 for the 2020-2021 school year to increase the limit to $10,000 is being recommended to allow for a more expedient response to needs under this unique year.
10.a. RECOMMENDED MOTION: That the Board of Education approve a temporary amendment to Policy 4:60, Purchases and Contracts for the 2020-2021 school year, changing the limit from $5,000 to $10,000.
