La Vernia Junior High School Principal Tony Kosub introduces Christey Clayton (center) and Suzanne Logan of the school’s parent teacher organization during the July 27 meeting of the La Vernia Independent School District board of trustees. Logan also gave a presentation about the school’s WeatherBug station, which provides real-time meteorological data to users of the site and mobile apps available for iOS, Android, and Windows devices.

The La Vernia Independent School District board of trustees, following a closed session at its July 27 meeting, has chosen Wendy Pruitt as the new assistant principal of the La Vernia Primary School.

Pruitt, who previously taught at the La Vernia Intermediate School, assumed her new role effective immediately, said Superintendent’s Secretary Diane Marsh following the meeting.

In other business, the board voted to renew the following vendor contracts for the 2015-16 school year:

¢Unifirst Holdings Inc.; $29,577.46 for uniform rental and laundry service for the district’s maintenance, transportation, and food-service employees

¢The Brokerage Store Inc. through Webb Insurance, $29,960 for student accident insurance to cover those participating in UIL activities. Parents also have the option to purchase additional coverage for their children

¢Property Casualty Alliance of Texas, $111,920 for property liability insurance to cover the district’s vehicles and facilities

¢Workers Comp Solutions, $60,747.85 for the initial contribution to the district’s workers compensation insurance.

Also related to procurement, Finance Director Kati Burke said that the district is updating its purchasing guidelines and vendor lists. She said that rules governing purchasing cooperatives have made it increasingly difficult to use local vendors, who sometimes can offer better pricing and quicker delivery of goods and services.
