Superintendent's Agenda Report

5. Items for Action

  1. Consent Agenda
    All of the items 1-5 can be approved with one motion and vote. Any trustee can pull an
    item from the consent agenda at any meeting if they want to discuss that item further. I
    recommend that we approve the consent agenda.
    1. Approve Minutes of December 9th Meeting
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for December 2014
    3. Hire Substitutes
      At this time we do not have any applicants. I am leaving this on the agenda as a
      placeholder if we get any before the meeting.
    4. Hire Classified Staff
      I recommend that we hire Kaycee Anderson for a Para-professional position at the
      appropriate rate per the Board's accepted salary matrix. Kaycee is just finishing up her
      student teaching here t Lockwood. All hires are dependent on background checks.
    5. Hire Coaches/Sponsors
      Mr. Swanke recommends Rob DiGillionardo and Jennifer Sannon be offered contracts for
      the Volleyball Coaching Positions. Rob will coach the instructional team and Jennifer will
      coach 7th grade.

  2. Review and Approve 2014 Audit
    Matt Hjelm from Galusha Higgins & Galusha will be here to go over our financial audit and
    answer any questions that the Board may have.

  3. Approve Out of District Student
    I am recommending that 8th grader KM be allowed to finish out the current school year
    here at Lockwood. The student's residence moved out of district over the break.

  4. Policy Updates
    1. Revisions - Second Reading - 1310, 3231, 3600P, 5140
    2. New Policy - Second Reading - 5125
      These are second and final readings of the policies that were brought to the Board in
      December.
    3. Revisions - First Reading - 1400, 4332
      The revision to Policy 1400 is simply to change the time of our Board Meetings to 6:00.
      There is some additional wording in Policy 4332 to clarify what steps Administration is
      authorized to take when this policy is violated.

  5. Approve Updated Job Description
    I recommend that the Board approve an updated job description for the Curriculum
    Director position.

  6. Superintendent's Contract
    Pending any issues with the evaluation prior to the regular meeting I would appreciate the
    Board extending my contract by rolling it forward another year.
