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 November 11th Meeting
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for November 2014
    3. Hire Substitutes
      I recommend the Board approve the attached list of substitute employees pending
      background checks and TB tests.
    4. Hire Classified Staff
      I recommend that we hire Emily Lund and Terry Barta for Custodian positions at the
      appropriate rate per the Board's accepted salary matrix. All hires are dependent on
      background checks.
    5. Hire Coaches
      Mr. Swanke recommends Sharmi Lagge be offered a contract for the Dance Coaching
      Position. We also would like the Board to approve Cara Lagge and Christian O'Loughlin to
      volunteer with that program. Also, Devin Reed needs to be approved as a volunteer 6th
      Grade Boys' Basketball Coach.
    6. Hire Certified Staff
      I have a recommendation to hire Helen McClain for the Readiness Kindergarten (Pre-K)
      program position at the appropriate rate according to our salary matrix. This is a pro-rated
      position for 98 contracted days.

  2. Student Expulsion Hearing – Executive Session
    I recommend the expulsion of student 14-2 from Lockwood Schools. Mr. Christman is
    working with the parent to place the student at New Day.

  3. Approve Student Placement at New Day
    I recommend that the Board approve the placement of student 14-3 at the New Day Ranch
    Day School accordance with the student's Individual Education Plan. We usually do not
    bring New Day placements to the Board as most of them utilize Medicaid, however this
    student does not qualify and we will be responsible for the cost of attendance. The cost to
    the district is $102 per day of attendance and includes transportation. This is paid out of
    our Tuition Fund, a non-voted levy.

  4. Approve Out of District Students
    I recommend that the Board approve two out of district students for enrolment for the
    remainder of the 2014-15 school year. RB is a first grader (123 students in grade) who
    whose mother we hired and will be new to the district. RD is an eighth grader who has
    moved out of the district and wants to finish Middle School in Lockwood.

  5. Policy Updates
    All of these policy updates are being recommended by MTSBA. I have included
    information from the November Policy Notes on these changes. All of these are first

    Policy 3210 will only require this one reading as it is based on a change to the law.
    Policy 5140 is not included in the Policy Notes but reflects what our practice will now need
    to be in order to best meet the requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
         1. Revisions – 1310, 3210*, 3231, 3600P, 5140
         2. New Policy – 5125
