  2. Letter from OPI
  3. This is a communication from OPI regarding the changes to the Accreditation process that will go into effect next school year. We are moving to a "blended" model that combines all the "inputs" that the current model looks at - programs offered, studentteacher ratios, aggregate hours, etc. - and combines this information with "outputs" in the form of CRT scores. Using this year's data and the new model our Middle School Accreditation this year hypothetically would have improved from "Regular with Minor Deviations" to "Regular". Our Elementary already had "Regular" accreditation.

3. Items for Action

  1. Approve Changes to the Negotiated Agreement
    The board will need to approve the negotiated changes to the Collectively Bargained Agreement with the teachers' union. The negotiations team has agreed to a 2% increase to the Base Salary and to absorb the insurance increases to keep the district's portion of the insurance cost at 80%. The salary increase will cost the district approximately $45,000. The district's portion of the insurance increase is approximately $60,000.

  2. Offer Certified Staff Contracts for 2013-14 School Year
    The principals and I will have hiring recommendations for open teacher positions at the meeting. They will be offered contracts at the appropriate step and lane pending successful background checks and proof of proper certification.

  3. Offer Assistant Principal Contract for 2013-14 School Year
    I recommend that Kelly Kinsey be hired as the Middle School Assistant Principal. His recommended contract will be the same as the other Principals with a salary of $57,500 and five additional vacation days that can be used or paid off annually.

  4. Accept Proposal for Door Lock System
    I recommend that the board approve the bid from Lock Doctor to provide and install door lock hardware and provide training to our staff. I am putting this on the special meeting agenda so that we can order materials in order to expedite the instillation process.

4. District reports

  1. Elementary DIBELS Effectiveness Reports
    I have included two charts showing the percentages of students scoring in the "Core" and "Intensive" categories on the DIBELS Reading Assessment. The "Core" classification is where we want students, above the 40th percentile, so we are looking for higher percentages in this column. "Intensive" students are the ones scoring the lowest on this assessment, below the 20th percentile, thus we are looking for smaller numbers in this category. The top chart compares the scores from the spring of 2012 and the current scores. Keep in mind that these are different cohorts of children. The bottom chart shows growth from the first measurement this past fall to the last measurement this spring. We showed some excellent growth in many grade levels.

  2. Pre-K Data Report
    Mr. Bowman will have hard copies of data reports from our Pre-K program this spring available at the meeting.
