  4. Appointment of the Clerk to the Board
    I recommend that Laurie Noonkester be appointed as the Clerk of the Board.

  7. Hire Certified Staff
    I recommend the hiring of Robert Anderson, Sandy Derrig, Kelcey Hernandez, Seth Hirschkorn, Ingrid Noonkester, and Mikal Overturf pending successful background check results.
  8. Approve Non-Union Classified Salaries
    I recommend a $.25/hr. increase for all hourly employees that are not covered by a Collectively Bargained Agreement. This will be a total impact of about $30,000 on our budget.
  9. Offer Contracts to Classified Staff for 2018-19
    I recommend that the Board offer contracts to the attached list of employees.
  10. Approve Elementary Student Handbook
    Mrs. Fox and Mr. Kinsey will present next year’s Elementary School Handbook for approval.

  12. Approve Job Descriptions – Interventionist, Literacy Coach
    I recommend that the Board approve the new job descriptions for Literacy Coach and Interventionist positions.
  13. Approve Update to Facility Fee Schedule
    I recommend that the board approve the recommended changes to Facilities Fee Schedule to
    reflect the decision that was made last month allowing the parking lots to be rented.
  14. Approve Extra Curricular Stipend Schedule
    Mr. Derrig has revised our extra curricular stipend schedule and I recommend that the Board accept this updated schedule. This will be a total impact of $200 on our budget including a reserve of $1,000 for any programs where we need additional coaches or sponsors.
  15. Approve Miscellaneous Administration Salaries
    I recommend the following salaries for next year: $70,471.34 for the Business Manager,
    $77,776.38 for the Technology Director and $79,505.40 for the Special Programs Director. The Business Manager and Special Programs salaries increased the same percentage as the Principal matrix. The Tech Director salary increased the same percentage as the Dean of Students and Curriculum Director positions.
  16. Approve Coaches/Sponsors
    I recommend the Board approve the following Coaches and Sponsors for next year: Johnathan Nielsen and Brennan Nielsen, Football; Eric Karls, Cross Country; Gretta Henrickson, Softball; Dan Hansen, 6th Grade Girls’ Basketball; Randee Ochinero and Jamie Craft, 7th/8th Volleyball; Quentin Staton, Marching Band; Kate Ryan, Student Council, Quentin Staton and April Lawver, Drama; and Tony Derrig, Activities Director.
  17. Approve Out of District Students
    I recommend the Board approve the attached list of Out of District Students for next year.
  18. Approve Volleyball Changes
    I recommend that we follow our volleyball coaches’ recommendations to convert the 6th grade program to an intramural program and open it up to 5th grade as well. Additionally, we would host a multi-school 6th grade tournament to conclude the season.
  19. Set Special Meeting
    We need to set a special meeting to canvas the bond vote results. Because the May meeting falls so early and the June meeting falling so late this will also help us with hiring staff for next year. Two possible days are: Friday the 18th over the lunch hour or Tuesday the 22nd at our normal 6:00 evening time.
