CEDAR FALLS -- The Board of Education Monday will hold a public hearing on proposed improvements to the outdoor track at the high school.

The board meets at 5:30 p.m. at Cedar Falls City Hall, 220 Clay St.

Plans and specifications for the track improvements, estimated to cost $165,00, were approved earlier this month by the board. The track was constructed in 1997, resurfaced in 2007 and patched in 2013. Current plans call for removing the surface and laying a new one. The project would be paid for through physical plant and equipment levy funds.

In other business, the board will consider:

  • Submitting a modified allowable growth application to the state for dropout prevention funding in 2018-19. Cedar Falls Community Schools officials have proposed a $1.27 million budget for seven programs. The budget will also include at-risk funding, projected at $120,518, and $10,239 in carryover funds from the current year. In addition, the district must provide 25 percent of the funds, or $285,047, from its general fund. As a result, the district will seek $855,139 in modified allowable growth funds.
  • Approving 2018-19 administrative costs for Cedar Falls' portion of the Lied Center Consortium in Waverly and the River Hills Consortium, which are serving students with needs that can't be met in the district's regular education schools. The district's portion at River Hills is $19,635, where 13 of its students are served, and $12,776 at Lied Center, where five of its students are served.
