3.

  1. Updated Levy Information to Publish
    In an effort to be transparent with our taxpayers Laurie and I would like to republish the
    expected changes to our non-voted levies. In light of the general fund levy failing, I
    would like to take advantage of the new non-voted Building Reserve fund. We are also
    shifting a couple of staff members into the Tuition Fund in order to expand the ABA
    program into the Middle School. Both the ability to levy these mills for the Building
    Reserve and the requirement of publishing these changes come out of the new SB 307.
4.
  1. Hire Certified Staff
    I recommend that we offer teaching contracts to Clifton Thomas (History), Darby Bigelow (Math), Daniel Hansen (Health), Lisa Skov (Spanish), and Dana Grob (Art) pending background check results.

  2. Hire Coaches
    I recommend the following staff be offered coaching contracts for the fall sports seasons: John Nielsen, 8th Football; Brennan Nielsen, 7th Football; Gretta Henrickson, Softball; Eric Karls, Cross Country; Stefanie Hagan, Cross Country; RanDee Ochinero, 8th Volleyball; Jamie Craft, 8th Grade Volleyball; Jennifer Sannon, 7th Volleyball; Darby Bigelow, 7th Volleyball; Daniel Hansen, 6th Grade Girls’ Basketball.

    Yearlong positions: Kate Ryan, Student Council; Quentin Staton, Marching Band

  3. Approve Contract with AWARE for Early Head Start
    I have attached a contract for your approval so that we can move forward with the Early Head Start program with AWARE.
