The total is $22,719.79 and will come from the capital projects fund, school officials said. The remaining balance in that fund is $77,299.

In other business Monday, the board approved academic calendars for the 2013-14 and 2014-15 school years. Next year’s school year will begin Aug. 14 and will end May 30.
