3. Items for Action

  1. Consent Agenda

    1. Approve Minutes of January 12th Meeting
      All of the items 1-4 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.
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for January 2016
    3. Hire Substitutes
      I recommend that the attached list of substitutes be approved.
    4. Hire Coach
      I recommend that we hire Courtney Metzler as an Assistant Track and Field Coach. I also
      recommend that Christine Collier be approved to help 6th grade volleyball as a volunteer.

  2. Approve Contract for Snow Removal
    This is a draft contract for removing the snow from the sidewalk on Highway 87. I put this together
    with help from our insurance carrier and MTSBA.

  3. Approve 2016-17 School Calendar
    Attached is my recommended calendar for next year. Certified and classified staffs have all had
    the ability to give input through the Leadership Team process.

  4. Approve Safety Incentive Program Participation
    I have included the attached contract for Board approval. It includes a three-year commitment to
    MSGIA Workers’ Compensation Risk Retention program. We have used MSGIA as our Workers’
    Comp insurance provider since 1989 as one of the founding members of this organization.

  5. Discuss Mill Levy
    I wanted to put this on the agenda one more time before we call for an election. We will have our
    spring count day numbers available and firmer idea of where our budget will be next year. While
    things might be tight financially, after talking to our taxpayers and hearing how much some of the
    taxable values have increased, I believe it is not a good time to ask our residents for a levy.

  6. Discussion of MTSBA K-8 Expansion Resolution
    We have been asked by MTSBA staff to consider revising our resolution to include a vote by both
    the trustees and residents of the existing high school districts.

  7. Call for Election
    We need to call for a vote. Three trustee seats are open for election: Vicki Krause, Don Reed, and
    Tim Sather’s current positions. I have included the election calendar from the county.

  8. Approve Bus Routes
    I recommend that the trustees approve the attached bus routes for the Kindergarten Readiness
    students.
