Fisher's contract
extended at Park Hill

by Alan McArthur
Landmark reporter

Dennis Fisher will remain at the helm of Platte County's largest school district another three years.

On Thursday, the Park Hill Board of Education voted to extend Fisher's contract as superintendent another three years, through 2012.

The board discussed the superintendent's performance in a closed session meeting after the regular meeting on Thursday and then voted 7-0 to extend Fisher’s contract.

Fisher began working for the district in 1999 as the assistant superintendent for business services. He became the deputy superintendent in 2001 and was hired as the superintendent in 2005.

In other business, the board also voted to approve bids for door and window replacement projects at several district buildings.

The buildings included in the project are Graden Elementary, Park Hill High School, Plaza Middle School, Chinn Elementary, Congress Middle School, the aquatic center and the district office.

The company awarded the window bid was JPI Glass with a bid of $36,133. The winning bid for the doors was submitted by Door Controls for $56,492.

The board also voted to approve a contract for mowing at several schools rather than add district personnel. The schools affected are Union Chapel, Southeast, Line Creek, and Chinn Elementary Schools as well as the day school and Plaza Middle School.

The contract with By the Blade lawn care was approved by the board for a cost to the district of $45,570.
