Contract approvals and other administrative items dominate tonight's Ypsilanti Community Schools Board of Education meeting agenda.  The board will consider a $13,000 contract with Stanley Security to re-key district buildings. 

Also up for consideration is a $34,000 contract with Johnson Controls to upgrade the heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems at Willow Run High School, Ypsilanti Community Middle School, Ford Early Learning Center and Holmes Elementary School.  And, the board will consider a contract with Greater Faith Transition Center to lease the Kaiser School building for five years. 

Greater Faith Transition Center would pay $2,000 a month, with an option to buy the building for $350,000.
