Grand Island

The School Related Professionals Union of the Grand Island School District will vote on a tentative new three-year contract Dec. 6 that is retroactive to July 1.

Union president Linda Lichtenthal, a bus driver and cafeteria monitor, gave a presentation at Monday’s School Board meeting about all the support workers. Included are employees working in transportation, buildings and grounds and school cafeterias as well as custodial, clerical, technical support, library and nursing staffers.

Board President David Goris said the SRP members “cover A to Z and are critical to the district’s success.”

Also this week:

• A 10-minute Power Point preview of the proposed $6.3 million transportation center behind Sidway Elementary School can be seen on the school district’s web site: The district referendum on the project is Dec. 18.

• Friday is the deadline for submitting a request to the Grand Island School District to serve on a committee that will recommend to the Board of Education individuals for whom the high school auditorium might be named.

The panel is expected to meet three to four times in January and February of next year.

Persons interested in serving on the committee should contact Janet Schuster, district clerk, at 773-9901 or email
