Superintendent's Agenda Report - Action Items

3. Items for Action

  1. Consent Agenda
    1. Approve Minutes of May 9th and 25th Meetings
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for May 2017
      Items 1 and 2 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. High School Expansion Request
    Chad Hanson is the Chair of the Lockwood Education Committee. He will be approaching the
    board on behalf of that group to ask that we put expansion into grades 9-12 on the ballot this fall.

  3. Resolution to Transfer Funds
    I recommend that the trustees adopt a resolution to transfer a maximum of $50,000 from the Transportation Fund to the Flexibility Fund and what other monies are available in the appropriate budgets to the Building Reserve Fund in order to address school safety and security. We have included draft resolutions on these two items .

  4. Resolution to Dispose of Property
    I have attached a resolution to dispose of obsolete equipment as required by law. I have added language that will allow us to advertise annually and dispose of items quarterly. If this works well, this is likely how we will move forward in future years.

  5. Approve Property and Liability Insurance Contract
    I recommend that we renew our contract with the Montana Schools Group Insurance Authority (MSGIA) to provide our property and liability insurance. This includes a significant increase of $6,512. This increase is primarily due to claims related to the unfair labor practice filed by the paraprofessional union.

  6. Approve MTSBA Membership
    I recommend that we remain members of the Montana School Boards Association. This year’s dues are $6,717.90.

  7. Approve ACE Membership
    I recommend that we remain members of the Alliance for Curriculum Enhancement. The yearly dues are $4,323.

  8. Approve MREA Membership
    I recommend that we remain members of the Montana Rural Education Association. This year’s dues are $2,175.

  9. Approve Contract with Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch for CSCT Services
    I recommend that we renew our contract with the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch to provide Comprehensive School and Community Treatment Services (CSCT) for our students.

  10. Policy Updates
    There are numerous policy changes that I am recommending stemming from the 2017 legislative session, the transition from No Child Left Behind to the Every Student Succeeds Act and a change in guidance from the US Department of Education. I will have detailed information on each change available.
    a. Required Changes – One Reading – 2333, 3110, 3121, 3125, 3125F, 3210, 5120, 5420, 7225, 8205, 8210
    b. Recommended Changes – First Reading – 1531, 3300, 4330F, 5010, 8100
    c. New Policy – First Reading – 2150, 3413F1, 3413F2, 5220, 5420F d. Delete Policy – 4600

  11. Approve Out of District Students
    I recommend that we accept students BS(K) and JC(4th) as out of district students for the 17-18 school year.

  12. Approve Superintendent Contract
    Trustees extended my contract in January, but we have not worked out contract details for next year.

  13. Set Plans for Goal Setting Work Session
    Every July we have a board work session to update and revise the board’s goals. Additionally, I will not be at the regular July meeting due to advocacy efforts in Washington DC.

  14. Approve Intent to Apply for STARS Preschool Grant
    I recommend that the board support Lockwood Schools applying for the STARS Preschool Grant.
