    All of the items 1-5 can be approved with one motion and vote. Any trustee can pull an

    recommend that we approve the consent agenda.
    1. Approve Minutes of June 14th, 22nd and July 7th Meetings

    3. Hire Classified Staff
      I recommend the hiring of Jean Bolton as a Custodian.
    4. Hire Coaches
      I recommend that John Nielsen be approved as the 8th Grade Football Coach, Brennan
      Nielsen as the 7th Grade Football Coach, Scott Owens, Ry Nelson, Eric Carlson, Chase
      Lawrence and Jake Vinton as Volunteer Assistant Football Coaches. I recommend
      Quentin Staton be approved for Marching Band, Eric Karls for Student Council and Helen
      Webber for Dance. I recommend that Jesse Swanke be approved for Softball. I
      recommend that Gretta Henrickson and Eric Karls be approved for Cross Country. I
      recommend that Courtney Metzler be approved for 8th Grade Volleyball. I may have
      additional Volleyball coaches for approval at the meeting.

  2. Discuss Bond Refinancing Schedule
    Bridget Ekstrom from D.A. Davidson will present a timeline for refinancing our outstanding
    bonds. She will be able to answer any questions that trustees may have. Updated
    estimates are that we will save our taxpayers over $960,000.

  3. Adopt Resolution to Authorize Refunding Bonds
    I have included resolutions for trustees to approve as part of the refinancing process.

  4. Approve Contract for Facilities Consulting Services
    The MTSBA attorney is working on putting together a contract with Facilities Solutions
    Management and Consulting for services this upcoming year. I have not received
    anything at this point.

  5. Policy Updates
    This is the second reading of policies that we reviewed last month. I believe that we are
    safe pulling policy 4313 since policy 4411 will go into effect.

  7. Adjust Language on Principal Contract
    I recommend that the board approve the included language change to Mike Bowman's
    contract.

  8. Approve Job Descriptions
    I recommend that the attached job descriptions be approved; they reflect the restructuring
    of our facilities and custodial management.

  9. Set Date for Budget Meeting
    We need to set a date for our budget meeting. It is unlikely that we will be able to have
    everything ready by the regular meeting and we have to adopt a budget by the 20th.
