    The attached list of substitute employees is recommended for hire.

  5. Hire Certified Staff

    I recommend that we hire Nicole Gambill, Jennifer Sand, and Charity Boller as
    paraprofessionals at the appropriate rate on the salary matrix. All background
    checks have been completed.

  6. Hire Coach

    Mr. Swanke has requested that we add an additional coach for 6th grade
    volleyball. We currently have 41 players under the supervision of one coach. He
    recommends Caitlyn Brown for this position at the appropriate stipend.

  7. Hire Substitutes

    I recommend that the board approve the attached list of substitute employees.

  8. Approve 2013-14 School Calendar

    There are three calendar options I am presenting the board. Option "A" follows
    the SD#2 calendar as closely as possible (variances are due to the ACE PIR Day
    and the structure of Parent Teacher Conferences), Option "B" follows SD#2 for the
    most part but eliminates any two school day weeks, Option "C" mirrors "A" but we
    would start and finish a week prior to SD#2.

    Chairman Sather and I have discussed the value of having our calendar be as
    close to SD#2's and how this eases the strain on parents with students in both
    systems. However, I think that Option "C" is the best choice for student learning.
    This is also the Option that the LEA prefers. We could put multiple options on the
    website with a poll to gather input from the community, specifically to try and get a
    feel for how much of an inconvenience different start and finish dates would be for
    the affected families.

    Once the board approves a calendar structure, I will make a recommendation for
    our "Early Out" days. All three of these calendars return us to the traditional 180
    day school year for students, thus we lose two PIR Days from this year's calendar.
    I would like to have two "Early Out" PIR Days per month to maximize both student
    school days and staff development opportunities. We will try to incorporate these
    early releases with vacation days as much as possible.

  9. Purchase Bus Camera Systems

    I recommend that we purchase Seon cameras and DVR systems for our buses.
    First Student is now able to order these for $740 per unit; this is just over half of
    what we were initially quoted. We can pay for these in two ways: we can pay the
    entire cost upfront or we can spread the cost out over the remaining length of our
    contract. I recommend that we do the latter, however due to First Student's
    practices this cannot be approved on their end to start until April 1st.

  10. Approve District Goals and Vision Statement

    I recommend that the board approve the district goals as developed at our work
    session. I added on an item addressing our roofing needs, as this is one of the
    biggest challenges we are facing. The board can opt to keep this on the list of
    goals or omit it. The administration is working with the staff to transform these into
    SMART goals and will bring these more specific goals to you for approval in the
    near future.

    I also recommend that the board also adopt the Vision that the students
    developed last month: "Lockwood Pride: Legendary Education, Lasting
    Foundation, Limitless Future!"
