Board meeting
Indian Lake Board of Education members heard from representatives from the industrial solar industry and several residents who oppose solar farms in our area during their June regular meeting. 
Representatives from Open Road Renewables gave a brief presentation about the Grange Solar project proposed near Indian Lake during the public participation part of the meeting. They were followed by several members of the Indian Lake Advocacy Group who have many concerns about large scale solar. They urged the board to remain neutral on the issue. Board members listened to both sides and took no action. 

In other news, Community Health and Wellness Partners CEO Tara Bair gave the board an update on the district health clinic. She reported the clinic served more than 500 patients, many taking advantage of on campus mental health services.
Superintendent Dr. Rob Underwood says, "We can't say enough about Nurse Practitioner Breanna Detrick for the way she runs the clinic and for all she and her team did during the tornado to help support our families as we transitioned back into the classroom."  
The board approved several supplemental contracts for coaches and set meal prices for the 2024-25 school year.
Finally, the board also approved a contract with Washington Township to continue the School Resource Officer services. 
The Indian Lake Board of Education will meet again on Monday, July 15th at 6:30 pm in the Board Office.
