QCSB Approves Title IX Investigation Engagement Services
Written by Jennifer Frieze, Correspondent

            On Wednesday, March 27th, the Quakertown Community School Board voted to approve the Title IX investigation engagement services with Montgomery, McCracken, Walker, and Rhoads.

            Title IX is a comprehensive federal law that is intended to remove barriers that may prevent people, on the basis of sex, from participating in educational opportunities and careers.

            This federal law requires schools to adopt and publish grievance procedures for students to file complaints of sexual discrimination. This may include complaints of sexual harassment or violence. Schools can use general disciplinary procedures to address complaints of sex discrimination.

            The legal services include a review and analysis of all applicable school policies, state, federal, and other regulatory authorities. The legal team will provide guidance, conduct all necessary interviews of involved parties and witnesses, collect evidence, evaluate the issues presented in the subject complaint and prepare a summarized report with findings and recommendations for further legal processing.

In addition, the legal council appointed to Quakertown School District will not represent anyone else involved in the Title IX investigation.

            Under the facilities consent agenda, it was announced that bids were received and opened on Wednesday, February 28, for the Strayer Middle School Fence Replacement and the high school Alumni Field paving repairs. The district received qualified bids for both projects. The bids came in under budget. A bid summary was prepared based on post-bid opening discussions.

            The lowest bidder for the Strayer Middle School fence replacement was Pro Max Fence Systems, LLC Base bid for a total of $118,552.00. The high school Alumni Field paving repair bid was awarded to Barker and Barker Paving for $162,415.50. The total amount for both projects is $280,967.50.

            The Alumni paving project was not originally approved as a capital project but is needed due to safety reasons.

            Another project that received board approval is the replacement of the pavilion located at Neidig Elementary.  Prior to the building renovation, the pavilion was used during recess for shade and as an outdoor learning area.

            The pavilion dimensions measure 24'W x 24'L x 10'4"H. The district will supply a 4-inch stone base and the concrete crew will spread the stone. The total for the building, to be erected on a level compacted site, is $28,582. If extra concrete or grading is required, that will be an additional charge.
