  3. Review and Approve 2013 Audit
    Matt Hjelm from Galusha, Higgins, Galusha will present a review of our 2013 audit. Hard copies of
    the audit will be presented at the meeting; if you would like to review this prior to the meeting they
    are available in Laurie's office. Trustees will be able to ask questions at the meeting.

  4. Hire Substitutes

  5. Hire Classified Staff
    I recommend the hiring of Kristen Hering and Jennifer Sannon as Para-professionals in the Middle
    School at the appropriate salary according to our schedule. Kristen is replacing Cole Cavin who
    has resigned. Jennifer will be taking a position helping with Interventions. This position was hired
    for in December but the person we offered it to took a position elsewhere.

  6. Hire Coaches/Sponsor
    I recommend that Nancy Strand be hired to finish out the school year as the Student Council
    Advisor. Her stipend will be prorated based on the number of days left in the year.

    I made a mistake in my report last month; Jesse Swanke should have been hired to an 8th Grade
    Volleyball Coaching position not an "Assistant" position.

    I recommend that Alyssa Christensen be hired to replace Cole Cavan as a 6th Grade Volleyball
    Coach. We have 32 8th grade girls out for volleyball so we recommend hiring Kristen Hering as an
    Instructional Coach for 8th Grade Volleyball.

  7. Approve Request for Weapons on Campus
    I recommend that the Board approve this request from the Society for Creative Anachronism. This
    is a program that they have done for several years and it is very educational. In accordance with
    Policy 3311 the Board can approve this type of activity on a case-by-case basis.

  8. Approve 2014-15 District Calendar
    Included are two calendar options. We put these out to the staff as a survey and the results are
    included. The staff was split almost 50/50. My recommendation is Option A due to academic
    reasons; this gives us an additional week of learning prior to the testing window. This calendar
    roughly matches this year's; again we would start and finish a week before SD#2. We will finalize
    Early Outs and other details through the Leadership Teams once the Board approves one of these
    basic structures.

  9. Approve Specific, Methodical, and Consistent Recipe for Success
    This document has its roots in Jim Collins book Great by Choice. He profiles this type of replicable
    and consistent success formula in organizations that have shown consistent success over
    extended periods of time. This also fits with the idea of using "skinny plans" that Michael Fullan
    advocates. This "recipe" has been developed by the administration following a work session this
    summer. We then reviewed and revised it in the Leadership Team meetings. This document will
    apply to all staff, it will go into our handbooks, and it will be given to potential employees in order
    to communicate our priorities during the hiring process. I am asking the Board to approve this
    document in order to give it more weight.

  11. Hire Certified Teacher
    I recommend that the District hire Eric Karls as a certified teacher for the remainder of the school
    year. This recommendation is pending acceptable background check results. His first day will be
    as soon as this background check information is available. He will be placed on the salary scale at
    the appropriate step and lane on a prorated basis for the remainder of the year based on days
    worked.
