With so many unknowns at this time, it is hard to make a plan. Future unification, going on our own for a year or so, and looking into how to continue to move forward with Ewing and Clearwater were discussed. The board created a statement for the Unified Board:
The Orchard Original Board cannot commit to renewing the current seven-year unification agreement at this time. In considering a contingency plan, Orchard Original Board would consider unification in the future.
There was some discussion on summer projects. The HVAC system needs continued work. There are some rooms that may need carpeting, but we will have further discussion after the board walk-through is completed.
