During its meeting on Tuesday, the Killeen school board approved a $1.5 million contract with John Cook & Associates for the life cycle replacement of air conditioning equipment at four schools and the district’s property management building.
A total of 78 units will be replaced, according to a handout on the district’s website. The four schools that will get new units include Brookhaven, Bellaire and East Ward elementary schools and Gateway High School.
In other business, the board approved appointing Killeen Independent School District parent Darie McCleaves as co-chair of the district’s Student Health Advisory Council. The role of the council is to present recommendations to the board of trustees for changes and/or additions to the district’s health education program. During the meeting, the board also approved the council’s request to continue the “Worth the Wait” sex education program, which began in 2010.
