3. Items for Action

  1. Approve Minutes of March 11th Meeting

  2. Approve Bills and Wages for March 2014

  3. Hire Substitutes
    I recommend that Alicia Simms be approved as a paraprofessional at the appropriate rate for the
    remainder of the 2014-15 school year.

  4. Student Disciplinary Issue
    The Board will take action on the Disciplinary Hearing that is taking place prior to the Regular
    Meeting.

  5. Hire Certified Staff
    I recommend that Tana Tchida be hired as a long-term substitute in Middle School Spanish at the
    appropriate rate as needed for the remainder of the absence. I am also hoping to have a
    recommendation for the MS PE opening for the remainder of this school year.

  6. Policy Update
    1. Accreditation Changes – 2158, 2171 – Second Reading
    2. 5314 Substitutes – Final Reading

    I recommend that the Board approve these readings as presented. I discussed the question
    regarding providing lunch for substitutes and the language regarding "no fringe benefits" with Joe
    Brott. He did not believe that this was an issue that we needed to be concerned with. If there are
    no objections from the Board we will start this practice.

  7. Approve Final Calendar – Early Outs
    The Leadership Team recommends the attached calendar for next year with Early Outs for staff
    development every Wednesday at 2:00. We hope that this move reduces confusion for parents,
    gives the staff more frequent collaboration time, and better allows staff from the different schools to
    schedule time to work together.

  8. Approve Elementary Handbook
    Mr. Bowman has submitted the updated Elementary Student Handbook for your approval. He will
    be available at the meeting for any question.

  9. Approve YBGR Placement
    I recommend the placement of a seventh grade student at the Yellowstone Academy.

  10. Cancel Trustee Election
    Trustees may cancel the election. None of the seats on our Board will be contested due to a lack
    of registered candidates.

  11. Support MTSBA Resolution and Amendment
    I recommend that our trustees take formal Board action to support the MTSBA resolution Allowing
    Expansion of Elementary Districts and the proposed amendment to said resolution that would limit
    this option to First Class Districts only. This recommendation comes from the discussion at this
    month's Independent Elementary Caucus meeting.

  12. Approve BB Gun Use - BSA
    The Boy Scouts are requesting permission to use a bb gun range as a teaching tool as part of an sign-up event they are hosting on our property.
