  2. Approve Bills and Wages for June 2014

  3. Approve Eagle Scout Project
    We have a proposed Eagle Scout project from Logan Nelson. Logan would like to build benches
    for the outdoor area off of the Middle School Library.

  4. Hire Classified Staff
    I recommend that Judy Guenther be hired as the Central Office Administrative Assistant and Adult
    Education Coordinator. Judy is a working retiree so there will be some limits to how much she can
    work and be compensated. Judy and Coti Widdicombe will job share the Administrative Assistant
    position and will each have additional duties assigned to them. I will have the details of the
    position available at the meeting but we are looking at $15.50 per hour and approximately 34
    hours per week for the school year.

  5. Hire Certified Staff
    I recommend that Kate Ryan be offered a teaching contract for the 2014-15 school year at the
    appropriate step and lane.

  6. Set Lunch Prices for 2014-15 School Year
    We are being advised by Sodexo to increase our lunch prices by five cents in order to comply with
    the USDA reimbursement requirements. This will bring our prices to $2.65 in the Elementary and
    $2.75 in the Middle School.

  7. Approve Updated Board Goals
    I anticipate that we will have an updated list of Board goals developed at the work session.

  8. Approve Organizational Charts
    Trustees asked me to put together organizational charts at one point this past year. I recommend
    these charts for your approval.

  9. Approve Booster Program
    At some point Eileen and the trustees had been working on offering advertising opportunities in the
    gymnasiums and the softball field area. I have taken this work and done some further research,
    this is included in the attached documents. I am asking that the Board give me the approval to
    reach out to local businesses with this opportunity. I would also like to discuss the idea of offering
    advertising on the main sign next to Highway 87 and the possible fees for this.

  10. Appointment of Activities Fund Custodian
    I recommend that Coti Widdicombe be appointed as the Board's Activity Fund Custodian.

  11. Set Date for Budget Work Session
    We need to set a date for a budget work session. The final budget can be adopted at the regular
    August meeting as it meets the date requirement of MCA 20-9-131. My recommendation is that
    we have the budget work session at 5:00 on August 12th just prior to the regular meeting. We have
    a scheduled negotiations session on the 6th.
