1. Bus Replacement Recommendation
Mark presented a three year replacement plan for buses. A recommendation for the 2019-2020 year will be on the board agenda for approval. The recommendation will be to purchase one new special education bus and three buses that are coming off lease from other districts. The total cost will be roughly $330,814 paid out of the capital projects fund.

2. Bus Camera RFP
Mark presented a sample request for proposal that will be going out in the next couple of weeks. The RFP is for a new bus camera system as Fruitport’s system is over 9 years old. Once the bids come in, Mark will present the recommendation.

3. Bond Investment Update
Mark presented an update on the bond investment income.

4. Spring Count Update
Mark presented our spring count numbers. Fruitport is down 45.70 FTE’s from the Fall which is roughly a 1.67% decrease.
