The Paso Robles School Board approved a series of expenditures at their meeting last night at the district office. Many of their expenditures were to help them deal with students returning to school under the extended coronavirus panic.
With Coronavirus Funding, the school board approved improved heating and air conditioning systems to improve air quality in schools. They bought outdoor learning tables and a device for Covid disinfection. It’s a Synexis Sphere Device that costs about $23,000. It will be used in nursing areas.
One of the educational programs they agreed to buy, however, is one that the district has used for several years, Edegenuity is used primarily in summer programs to help students gain credit for classes. That program will cost the district about $70,000. It will also be paid for with the cares act funding.
The PRJUSD School Board meeting was held at the district office, but no one other than staff was allowed to attend. The meeting was carried on YouTube, and people who wanted to participate could call in to the meeting. You may still view the meeting at the district’s YouTube site.
