3. Items for Action

  1. Consent Agenda
    All of the items 1-4 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.
    1. Approve Minutes of February 14th Meeting
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for February 2017
      We recently
    3. Hire Classified Employee

  2. Waive Gym Rental Fee for Stars-n-Stripes Wrestling Tourney
    Bob Charette who oversees the Stars-n-Stripes AAU Wrestling has requested that we waive the cost of renting Sturtevant Gym. They have been asked to host an inaugural First Nations Wresting Tournament on April 15th. This tourney’s goal is to increase involvement in the sport by Native youth. They are really unsure what type of turnout that they might have and have asked us to waive the $200 rental fee. Bob also wants to give an update on the wrestling program. I recommend that we waive our rental fee for this event.

  3. Open Negotiations with Para-professional Union, Set Negotiations Team
    We have received a request from the Lockwood Para-Professional Association to open the bargaining agreement for negotiations. We settled on a two-year deal but exhausted the whole first year in negotiations so that deal expires at the end of this fiscal year. WE need to select a negotiations team for this process and discus available dates.

  4. Set Levy Amount
    Last month we decided to put a General Fund levy out to our taxpayers. We have to set the amount of this levy by the end of this month. Laurie and I will present two options, 5 mills and the maximum budget allowed. These are just two examples and the Board can set the levy for any amount allowed by law that pleases them.

  5. Approve Out of District Students
    I recommend that the Board approve LC (5th) and CM (3rd) to finish the current school year as nonresident students.
