LCC Board will purchase bus, put in new gym floor

LAUREL — Laurel-Concord-Coleridge School Board members took action on the purchase of a school bus and replacing a gym floor and  enrolled in a language learning software package during the Dec. 12 meeting.

A softball co-op with another school was also discussed.

Board member Steve Schutte had been approached about a possible softball co-op with the Ponca School and Supt. Randall Klooz had spoken to a member of the administrative staff at Ponca.

“I received a phone call from someone in Ponca and they asked if we would like to work with them with softball,” Schutte said. “I know we have some girls that would love to play softball. If the school is going to have softball we would have to do a co-op.”

The Ponca School is talking about doing something with a softball co-op according to Klooz.

“They have talked to another school,” Klooz said. “If we do softball then you have to consider that some of the school’s other activities will loose some of their participants,”

Board members took a time to look at two options before they made the decision to purchase a 72 passenger school bus.

The price for a 53 passenger bus was at just over $88,000 while the price for the 72 passenger bus was $90,912.
