- Clark and Kimbrough stadiums to receive new scoreboards in $1.5M contract
Plano ISD trustees approved an expenditure of over $1.5 million to replace the Clark and Kimbrough stadiums’ scoreboards.
Daktronics, the firm awarded the contract to carry out the project, will replace the existing scoreboards and sound systems of both stadiums, according to a district-prepared document.
The expenditure allots over $800,000 for the Clark contract and over $700,000 for the Kimbrough contract, according to the document.
2. Ninth graders at Plano Academy High School will not receive a GPA boost from taking high school-level classes
Students entering ninth grade at the Plano Academy High School for the 2018-19 school year will not receive a GPA boost from high school-level classes taken prior to the ninth grade, trustees ruled.
Plano Academy High School students receive nonweighted GPAs, meaning heavier scored classes, such as Advanced Placement and honors classes, do not boost their GPAs. Tuesday evening’s decision is an update to existing policy.
Susan Modisette, assistant superintendent for campus services staff, said the decision is not affiliated with the district’s current push to readdress its class ranking policy.
3. Previously passed "culture of voting" resolution readdressed by trustees
Citing a “posting error,” Plano ISD trustees readdressed a previously passed resolution supporting a “culture of voting” within PISD.
Trustees Yoram Solomon and Angel Powell, who voted for an updated version of the resolution, said they wanted to clarify some of the resolution’s language. Trustee Tammy Richards also voted for the updated resolution.
The vote for the updated resolution did not pass, and the original resolution remained intact.
