In other business, Hammonds:

-Asked the School Board to consider issuing a request for proposals for companies interested in handling maintenance and inspection of the city’s bus fleet after Alabaster splits from the Shelby County School System.

Hammonds said hiring an outside company to handle maintenance and inspection will not affect school bus drivers, and will help maintain the fleet of about 70 or 80 buses in the absence of an Alabaster Schools-owned bus maintenance shop.

-Said three Alabaster teachers and BOE member Adam Moseley are set to meet with the Denning E-Solutions company to help design an Alabaster Schools website.

-Asked the School Board to consider making some short-term improvements to the city’s schools outlined in a school facility assessment recently presented by the Volkert engineering company.

-Said he is working with the AdvancED accreditation agency to ensure “a seamless transition from Shelby County to Alabaster schools with accreditation.”

-Said the Alabaster BOE is looking to work with the Alexander and Company firm to offer optional employee benefits. Alexander and Company currently works with Shelby County Schools, Hammonds said.
