2. Individuals, delegations, correspondence

  1. Sicily Morris – PTA President
    Mrs. Morris has asked to address the board regarding the participation in the PTA and the
    future of the group.

3. Items for Action

  1. Approve minutes of February 12th and March 12th meetings

  2. Approve bills and wages for March 2013

  3. Student Disciplinary Hearing – Executive Session

    Mr. Klasna is bringing a student to the Board for an expulsion hearing. This hearing
    should take place in Executive Session and the board will have to take action in Open
    Session. The student and his parents may choose to take part in this hearing.

  4. Hire Substitutes

  5. Approve Retirement Incentives
    I recommend that the Board approve the $12,000 retirement incentive for Kathy Albrecht,
    Marie Anderson, and Jan Trask. I recommend that the Board approve the 3-year,
    $6,000/year insurance benefit incentive for Judy Guenther and Vicki Turnquist. These
    five retirements give us approximately $150,000 in budget flexibility for next year.

  6. Offer Tenured Certified Staff Contracts for 2013-14 School Year

    I recommend that the attached list of certified staff members be offered contracts for the
    2013-14 school year. Specific positions will be assigned at a later date.

  7. Offer Non-Tenured Certified Staff Contracts for 2013-14 School Year

    I recommend that the attached list of certified staff members be offered contracts for the
    2013-14 school year. Specific positions will be assigned at a later date. There was some
    concerns regarding budgeting because we do not know how schools will be funded for
    next year with the legislature still in session. I cannot foresee any scenario where would
    have to cut staff beyond the six resignations we already have (Item 3E plus one additional
    resignation). I can go over preliminary budgeting projections with you if you have
    questions, but I don’t want to publish them, as they are “very unofficial” at this point.

  8. Discuss Staffing Plan for 2013-14

    I would like to share my thoughts for certified staffing for next year. Administration has
    been working on how to best address our accreditation deviations and biggest needs and
    we would like some feedback from the board.

  9. Approve Out of District Students
    I recommend that JB (5th) and JB (6th) be allowed to complete this school year as out of
    district students. They are both current students that moved out of district.

  10. Approve YBGR Placement
    I recommend that DM (6th) be placed at YBGR for the remainder of the school year. This
    is an IEP team placement.

  11. Cancel Trustee Election
    We do not have any seats with multiple candidates. Trustees will be elected by
    acclamation. We will need to appoint someone to the one year term in May.
