  4. Trustee Financial Reports for 2011-12
    Laurie will present the Trustees Report for your approval.

  5. Approve the 2012-13 Budget
    Laurie and I will present our final recommendations for the 2012-13 budget for your approval. Please contact us with any questions on the budget that was presented at the work session prior to the meeting, so that we can get you a well-researched answer.

  6. Approve Bus Contract with First Student
    We are looking at signing a contract with First Student for an additional five years (we have two years remaining on this contract). This will allow us to replace our current fleet of buses with new vehicles that are outfitted with seat belts for student safety. They are putting together two contracts: one for the just the buses, the other for buses and an upgraded video system. The cost of this system will be pro rated over the length of the contract. I recommend that we extend the contract and add the newer video system.

  7. Approve Roofing Project
    I recommend that we re-roof the section of the Intermediate Building that borders Highway 87. I have included blue prints of the area, which is labeled area 1 in the engineer's report. This is the area that is of the greatest concern and we think that it would be proactive to have this work done prior to the winter months. We are still planning on applying for the Quality Schools Improvement Grant for reroofing other sections of the buildings, but the reality is that even if we get this grant the work will not be done until next summer. Funding for this project will come from the Building Reserve.

  8. Hire Maintenance/Facilities Help
    I recommend that Marc Dearing be hired on in the Facilities Department as a full
    time employee at an hourly rate of $20.42 with the appropriate benefits package.

  9. Hire Coaches and Sponsors
    I recommend that we hire Jen Rice and Gretta Henrickson as the Cross Country
    Coaches. I also recommend that we hire Charles Harvey as the Student Council
    Advisor.

  10. Hire Substitutes for 2012-13
    I recommend that we approve the attached list of substitute employees.

  11. Revise Policy 3451 Acceptable Use/Children's Internet Protection Act
    I have added an additional paragraph to this policy. This was at the
    recommendation of Jack Sterling, who does our eGrants. The Children's Internet
    Protection Act requires this language. I believe that our current language would
    fulfill this requirement, but having the exact language keeps us from having any
    issues down the road.
