1.01   CALL TO ORDER – MRS. NANCY KEITH, President of the Board (A)

1.02   APPROVAL OF THE AGENDA (A)

RECOMMENDATION:  Move to approve the agenda as presented or amended



2.0  OLD BUSINESS



2.01      HANDBOOK APPROVAL (A)

Related Documents:  Parent/Student Handbook



3.0  NEW BUSINESS



3.01    FITNESS CENTER CARD FEE (A)

Purpose:  To evaluate the cost for a Fitness Center Card

 

Comments:  With the new card reader being installed, everyone will need to purchase a new/different card.  The equipment is aging and will need to start being replaced. A yearly fee as opposed to a one time cost would allow the district to replace the equipment without any financial burden.

 

Recommendation:  To set the charge for a fitness center access card at  $30/year with the replacement cost for the card remaining at $10.  

 


3.02     ADDITION OF STAFF (D/A)

Purpose:  To explore adding additional staff member(s) to work with at-risk students needing assistance.

Comments:  I would like to explore the addition of either a teacher or aide(s) at the elementary.  If we cannot find a suitable candidate, I would like to provide funding for teachers to work with at-risk students after school.  

 

Recommendation:  To advertise for and hire an additional teacher or aide(s) to work with at-risk students.
