Superintendent's Agenda Report - Action Items

5. Items for Action

  1. Consent Agenda
    1. Approve Minutes of September 12th and 29th Meetings
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for September 2017
    3. Hire Classified Staff
    4. Approve Substitute Staff
    5. Approve Out of District Students
    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.

  2. Approve Contracts for Counseling Services
    We continue to have several students with counseling needs and not enough resources to provide the support we would like. These contracts are similar to the one you approved last year for a substance abuse counselor last year. This will give our needy students some extra supports.

  3. Department of Justice Audit Results and Procedure Changes
    Last week we were audited by the Department of Justice regarding fingerprint background checks. The attached information is the result of this audit. In response to the Summary: Item one, we just adopted these new forms at last month’s board meeting; Item 2, this is included on this agenda item for your adoption; Item 3, all training has been done; Item 4, we are choosing not to comply with this item as we have concerns about not retaining this information on employees due to possible liability issues. Laurie and I can further explain this at the board meeting. I recommend that the Board adopt the updated fingerprinting procedure.

  4. Policy Updates - 3124 Military Compact Waiver – Second Reading
    This is the second and final reading of this policy. At this time I am suggesting that we leave Policy 4350 regarding Website Accessibility tabled. This policy was the topic of much discussion at the recent MASS conference. The META group is looking into developing best practices and tools for Montana’s schools. I will have more information at the meeting regarding this issue.
