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.
