Superintendent's Agenda Report - Action Items

3. Items for Action

  1. Consent Agenda
    1. Approve Minutes of October 10th Meeting
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for October 2017
    3. Hire Classified Staff
    4. Approve Substitute Staff
    5. Hire Coaches

    Items 1-6 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. Review Roofing Report/Approve Representative Agreement
    CTA recently finished updating our roofing plan, which has basically been on hold since 2012 as we searched for funding options. With the permissive Building Reserve we now have a way to possibly pay for the project. Patrick Todd will be available for questions on the report. I would like to move forward with an agreement with CTA to represent the district. We believe that we will get better prices if we put the project out to bid before January. I’d also like to discuss options for funding including the possibility of an INTERCAP loan.

  3. Create Fund – Don Reed Memorial
    A group of Don Reed’s friends have been spearheading an effort to create a memorial fund in his name. I recommend that we create a Don Reed Memorial fund as a sub-fund of our Humanitarian fund. This will allow us to earmark these funds for items that honor his memory and allow us to track donations in Don’s name. I anticipate that some of Don’s friends may be in attendance to share their thoughts.

  4. Canvas Election Results
    The board will need to canvas and approve the results of the November 7th election.

  5. Approve Scoreboard Agreement
    Mr. Derrig has worked to secure the donation of a new scoreboard for the Sturtevant Gym from Stockman Bank. The value of this generous donation is almost $5,000. I have included a copy of the agreement for your approval.

  6. Special Education Cooperative Commitment
    I recommend that the board approve this recommitment to the East Yellowstone Special Services Cooperative. This commits us through the next three school years (Spring of 2020). I gave the Coop a verbal commitment that we would remain a member until the retirement incentive for our former director is complete. I also confirmed this in writing, but they would like a copy of the commitment to keep their records complete.

  7. Background Check Policy Review
    During the October meeting there were several questions about background checks. I placed this on the agenda based on that conversation so we could review our policy and practices regarding background checks.

  8. Approve Negotiated Agreement with Teacher’s Association
    We have completed negotiations with the Lockwood Education Association. Changed language is highlighted. There is a 4% raise over three years, several language changes, and a modification to health insurance contributions.
