JACKSONVILLE — JISD school board trustees will meet 6:30 p.m. Monday at the district administration building, 800 College Avenue and are expected to call a May 10 trustee election.

Up for election are the Place 3 position held by Jimmy Brown, and the Place 4 position held by James Houser.

Incumbent Brown and Pamelia Franklin Adams have thrown their hats into the ring for Place 3, while Ann Chandler and Cassie Devillier have filed as candidates for Place 4.

Trustees also will consider a vendor bid proposal to provide complete wireless solution, including data drops, PoE (power over ethernet) switches, access points, configuration and installation of all products for the district.

Also on the agenda is adoption of the 2014-2015 school calendar and authorizing Troy Parker to be an approved user on an account with First Public Lone Star Investment Pool, which the school will be using to invest 2014 Bond Proceeds.

An update will be given by architects and construction firm representatives, as well as district officials, on the construction and renovation projects funded through last year's $23 million bond election.
