- Request for a leave of absence
Linda Scozzari is requesting a leave from September 20 through December 22. The first four weeks will be under FMLA (Family Leave) and the remainder would be extended leave granted by the Board. All of this is without pay. Linda teaches Spanish in the Middle School. I recommend granting this leave.
- Hire a replacement for the Spanish position
If the leave is granted to Mrs. Scozzari, Becka Swanke is recommended to be granted contract for the duration of the leave. Becka did her student teaching in this classroom and filled in last year when Mrs. Scozzari was on leave.
- Policy recommendations
Policies 3F 1-13 are the result of actions from the 2011 Montana Legislature or federal regulations. The strikethrough will be eliminated and the yellow highlighted will be added. Only one reading is necessary since these are all legal regulations.
3F14 Policy #5222 is recommended for the additional wording of assistant principal.
- The following are recommended for out of district placement
Grade 6 Joseph Frantz and Colby Williams
Grade 7 Dakota Moore and Christian O'Loughlin
- Bus routes for 2011-2012
- Set date and time for a budget workshop in August
Document 4D8 is a report on Lockwood's MontCas scores for the spring of 2011. All subgroups made AYP with the exception of the Middle School Special Education. The K-5 grades made AYP (Annual Yearly Progress) meaning all sub groups made the mark set by the state. As is clear on the summary of scores our students are doing quite well and actually higher than the scores of the state group.
