  3. Hire Certified Staff

    I recommend that Jerry Zilkoski be hired as a Counselor for the 2013-14 school year at the appropriate step and lane. This contract will be pending his appropriate certification from the State of Montana.

  4. Consider Bids for Elementary Sewer Hook Up

    Rob has been getting bids for the cost of hooking our elementary schools in to the Lockwood sewer system. Two of these bids are included (3D1, 2). Another bid will be submitted prior to Monday and we expect it to ne lower. We need to decide if we want to move forward with this project at this time or not. If we do not, we will need to aerate that septic field as we only have 2 out of 20 lines working. This will cost around $2,000 but will likely only buy us one more year of use. Laurie will have an update on where our Building Reserve Fund sits following our summer work projects.

  5. Policy 5460 - Electronic Resources and Social Networking - Second Reading

    Again this is a second reading of this policy. There has been a lot of discussion on different aspects of this policy. I have made some small changes based on the Board’s direction at the last meeting. These changes are highlighted. I have also included sample policies from three other districts - Centerville, Columbus and Belgrade. These were policies that were recommended because they were slightly different. The vast majority of districts have adopted MTSBA’s recommended policy with no changes; this policy includes all the language that has been discussed at the past two meetings. I still recommend that we keep the previous language as was presented last month. The Board can move forward with this as a second reading with or without the changes. My recommendation is that we table this policy and work through these issues with guidance from MTSBA Policy Services.

  6. Set Date for Budget Work Session

    We should set a date to review the budget for next year prior to the next regularly scheduled trustee meeting. The week of August 5th is recommended with the regular meeting falling on the next Tuesday.
