Superintendent's Agenda Report

3. Items for Action

  1. Approve minutes of October 10th meeting

  2. Approve bills and wages for October 2012

  3. YBGR Student Placement

    I recommend that the board approve the placement of 8th grade student SE at the
    Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch based on the recommendation of the school
    administration.

  4. Hire Coaches

    I recommend Rob DiGiallonardo for 8th Grade Boys' Basketball Coach and Joel
    Rogers for 7th Grade Boys' Basketball Coach.

  5. Hire Substitutes

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

  6. Multi-District Agreement

    I recommend that the trustees approve this Multi-District agreement with the
    Canyon Creek and Independent School Districts. This language is modeled after
    the MTSBA suggested language. Independent has already approved the
    agreement and Canyon Creek will approve it at their next board meeting on the
    19th. We should get at least $14,600 from the state as an incentive for entering
    into this agreement.

  7. Policy Updates

    There are several policy updates that we need to make. I have struck through the
    previous language and put new language in italics to show you where changes
    have been made. I have included the MTSBA Policy Notes that addresses most
    of these changes.

    I. On Policy 2420, which is not addressed in the Policy Notes, I have included
    the recommended language from MTSBA as well as updated language that
    reflects current practice. My recommendation on this policy is to use the
    MTSBA language.

    II. Policy 2312 and 2312P are required by MTSBA. In 2312P the board will
    need to designate who is responsible for compliance on the last page. I
    spoke with Joe Brott and he recommended that we adopt 2332 and 2333
    even though we do not have a high school as we do a "graduation"
    ceremony. There have been several districts that have dealt with this issue
    in Montana over the past few years. 3600F addresses required federal
    notifications.

  8. Approve Caucus Day on the Hill

    I recommend that the board authorize $25 (or more) to help finance the MTSBA
    "Caucus Day on the Hill".
