3. 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 July 14th Meeting
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for July 2015
    3. Hire Substitutes
      I recommend that the attached list of substitutes be approved for the 2015-16 school year.
    4. Hire Classified Staff
      I recommend that we offer a contract to Angela Larson for the Nurse’s Aide position.
    5. Hire Coaches
      I recommend that we offer contracts to: Jen Rice and Gretta Henrickson to coach crosscountry; Jesse Swanke to coach softball; Cinda Paynter and Sarah Bonner to coach
      volleyball; Q Staton for Marching Band; and Eric Karls to be the Student Council advisor. I
      also recommend that the board approve Eric Carlson, Scotty Owens, Ry Nelson and Blair
      Monson as volunteer assistant football coaches. All positions are subject to background
      checks.

  2. Approve Bus Routes
    I recommend that the board approve the attached bus routes. There will likely be some
    small changes before the school year starts as we are still registering students.

  3. Policy 3100 – Student Enrollment Age Waiver – Second Reading
    Based on our discussion last month, I present this as the second reading of this policy.

  4. Policy 5321 – Blackout Days – First Reading
    This is a proposed first reading of a policy that would extend our blackout day policy to all
    employees not just certified teachers. This would not affect Paras at this time as we are in
    negotiations with them.

  5. Approve Job Descriptions – School Nurse, Nurse's Aide
    I recommend that the board approve the attached job descriptions.

  6. Approved Revised Employee Handbook
    I recommend that the board approve the included updated version of the Employee
    Handbook. Some key changes include adding blackout day language, bringing our fulltime/
    part-time employee definitions in line with the ACA and changing the insurance plan we
    offer to full-time 10 month employees from 80% of the regular single plan premium to the full
    single premium on the high deductible plan.

  7. Approve "Grandfathered" Insurance Coverage
    Due to the change in insurance benefits offered to classified staff in the Employee
    Handbook, I recommend that we continue to offer Bill Ruff the same insurance benefits as a
    full-time, 10-month employee. Bill is our only current employee that will be affected by the
    change to no longer offer insurance to employees that work less than 30 hours per week.

  8. Approve Revised Paraprofessional Handbook
    I recommend that the board approve this updated version of the Paraprofessional
    Handbook. Changes are editorial and due to change in our staffing.

  9. Approve Revised Substitute Handbook
    I recommend that the board approve the updated Substitute Handbook. The main changes
    are the incentives for working more often, including a $1/hour increase for subs that work
    more than 25 days in a school year, and a tutorial on the Aesop system.

  10. Transfer of P-Card Account
    I recommend that the board approve the attached resolution that will transfer our P-card to a
    bank that works with MASBO to provide a rewards program where we will get money back
    on our purchases.
