Superintendent's Agenda Report

5. Items for Action

  1. Consent Agenda
    All of the items 1-5 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 July 7th and 12th Meetings
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for July 2016
    3. Hire Substitutes
    4. Hire Classified Staff
      I recommend the hiring of Kacee Contreraz for the Floating Secretary position at 15.00 per
      hour based on her experience. Additionally, we are making this a 12-month position by
      adding Medicare/Medicaid billing duties and support for Adult Education.

  2. Appointment of New Trustees
    1. Introduction of Candidates
      We have three people interested in filling Don Reed's term for the rest of this year: Pam
      Ask, Sylvia Noble and Teresa Stroebe. I have included the information that they have
      provided me.
    2. Candidate Interviews
      Pam Ask cannot be at the meeting, so I sent all three candidates the attached questions. I
      will post any responses as I receive them.
    3. Selection of New Trustees
    4. Oath of Office for New Trustees

  3. Refinancing of Bonds
    There are several resolutions that we need to approve to finalize the refinancing of our
    bonds. We locked our bonds in at a 1.76% interest rate saving our taxpayers $874,582 or
    10.8% of the outstanding balance.
    1. Resolution Approving Tax Compliance Procedures
    2. Final Resolution Approving Refinancing Procedures
    3. Approval of Escrow Agreement

  4. Approve 2016-17 Bus Routes
    I have attached route sheets and maps for the proposed routes. Significant changes
    include moving the area just east of the school (Suburban, Rolling Meadows, Lantana and
    Meir) back to the walk zone. I have also modified how we split up the area north of the
    interstate and Sierra Estates. There are some stops added to areas where we have
    gained riders and eliminated some stops where we have no riders. One of these
    eliminated areas is Huntington Hills; this will greatly shorten route #2 and keep us from
    having to request entering the Morin school district. I have only included maps for the
    Ranch routes in order to keep those addresses confidential. Mileage for that route is:
    47.29 AM, 22.46 PM and 41.82 PM (Early Outs).

  5. Approve Revised Substitute Handbook
    I recommend the attached changes to the Substitute Handbook.
