    I recommend that the Board approve the final reading of these two policies.

  11. Policy 8220 Meal Charges - Revision
    I ask that the Board approve the modified language so that policy will match practice in
    giving administration leeway to work with families for the benefit of students.

    Kay Reynolds, Susan Senger, Colleen Simpson, Jessica Tatarka and Crystal West.
    Contracted hours will be based on the employees' current schedules. Salaries and
    benefits are still based on the 2014-15 matrix due to status quo being in effect while we
    finish negotiations.
