Summary At the June 17, 2019 meeting I asked the Board to approve a 3-year contract with Boom Entertainment, LLC to provide entertainment services for the LTHS Freshman Mixer, Homecoming, TWIRP and Prom. The Board of Education requested more information before approving the agreement and tabled the agreement until tonight's meeting.

After the June 17 meeting, I provided the Board more information through the Superintendent's weekly board notes. The board notes memo dated June 24, 2019 is attached for the Board's reference.

I have also requested a 1-year proposal from Boom Entertainment, LLC. As I estimated in the board notes memo, the 1-year proposal would cost $12,176.93 more per year. Both the original 3-year agreement presented to the Board in June and the 1-year agreement are attached to this memo for the Board's consideration.

After reviewing all the additional information that I gathered, I still believe that entering into a 3-year agreement with Boom Entertainment, LLC for LTHS dance entertainment is the best interest of our students. Boom is the company that our students prefer. They provide the entertainment that our students want with the security features that LTHS administration wants. The 3-year agreement is significantly less money per year than the 1-year agreement, which would allow LTHS to keep dance ticket prices low for our students. It also secures LTHS's preferred event dates for the 3-year period.
Funding The Boom Entertainment, LLC Agreement is primarily funded through Freshman Mixer, Homecoming, TWIRP, and Prom ticket sales. The barricade expense for Homecoming and TWIRP will be part of the LTHS 2019-20 Activities Budget.
Recommendation I recommend that the Board of Education approve the 3-year Entertainment Agreement with Boom Entertainment, LLC as presented.
