14.B. Sound System at Tiger Stadium
Description:  The sound system at Tiger Stadium was installed before the stadium was upgraded.  The system needs to be upgraded to enhance the sound during activities.  We investigated upgrading this at this time in case any trenching needed to be done to ensure the proper sounds on the visitor side while the field was under renovation.  The system can be upgraded without placing speakers on the visitor side according to the engineers.  Seven speakers will be installed on the press box to fully cover the field for any activities. Purchase not to exceed $44,000.
14.C. Announce board member(s) status regarding State Board of Education required hours of continuing education for all school board.
Description:  At the last regular meeting of the board of trustees before an election of trustees, the current board president must announce the name of each board member who has completed the required continuing education, who has exceeded the required hours of continuing education, and who is deficient in meeting the required hours of continuing education.

"Completing the required continuing education is a basic obligation and expectation of any sitting board member under State Board of Education rule."

"Ralph Ramon, Lauren Collier, Doug Neff, Carrie Richardson, Haley Leatherwood and Luanne Burleson have all exceeded the required hours of continuing education.  Michael Rodriquez has not met, nor is he deficient, in the required hours of continuing education because he is still within the first 120 days of his appointment."
