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 August 9th and 18th Meetings
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for August 2016

    3. Hire Substitutes
      I recommend the Board approve the attached list of Substitute employees. All hires are contingent on background checks.
    4. Hire Classified Staff
      I recommend the Board approve the attached list of Classified employees. All hires are contingent on background checks.

  2. Special Education Cooperative Membership
    The Co-Op Board has denied our request to transition to an “Auxiliary” relationship with the Cooperative. This leaves us two choices: we can stay in the Co-Op or transition to our own program. In accordance with MCA 20-7-457 we need to make this decision prior to October 1st. Laurie, Don and I are working to make sure we have all our questions regarding funding answered before committing to leaving. I will have more information available at the meeting, but we may need more time and a possible special meeting prior to the October 1 deadline.

  3. Approve Final 2016-17 Bus Routes
    I have included updated bus routes that reflect changes made since last month based on student need. If approved, I will submit updated routes to the County Transportation Committee later this month for final approval.

  4. Approve Out of District Students
    I recommend that the Board approve KW (K) and EH (4th) to attend Lockwood for the 2016-17 school year as non-resident students.

  5. Yurian Property
    Chairman Sather wanted to have a discussion regarding the use of the home on the Yurian property since the Community Health Clinic is not likely to happen in the immediate future.
