The Goodrich ISD School Board met for its June meeting last week to approve construction on campus and review checklist items occurring over the summer months.

Gas line testing has occurred at the school over the past week. A valve began leaking at the school and has been repaired.

Floors in all district buildings have been stripped and waxed. Superintendent Daniel Barton said he was impressed by the job of the maintenance staff, completing the task in two and a half weeks.

“In years past, that has not been the case,” Barton said. “They worked well together and did a bunch of work. They have to move all of that furniture out and it is a lot of work. We schedule it for a full month, but I said if they could get it done in time, they could go on four-day weeks. We’ve got an exceptional staff when it comes to that.”

A heater is being replaced in a bus, and two others are in for air conditioning repairs.

A lawn mower cut a two-inch water main and that could not be stopped at the school. There is no shut-off valve at the meter. It is since been repaired.

The board voted to keep all positions for the 2023-24 school year as they have been for the past year. Rigoberto Reyes remains the president, Rosalie Blackstock is vice president, Thomas Finger serves as secretary and Timothy Harrell is assistant secretary.

The district has decided to construct a chain link fence from the elementary down Highway 59 that will enclose the school. The fence would come back around the agriculture building and across to the library near the fitness center. Barton said the fence would lock the entire campus. The district received three bids, with the highest at well over $200,000, but went with a bid of $94,000.

Windows to be installed a the lower elementary have wood that has rotted and will need replacement. Two bids were received, and the repairs will cost just over $14,000.

Door replacements at the high school, ag building, upper elementary and middle school will come at a price of $49,000.
