Superintendent's Agenda Report - Action Items

3. Items for Action

  1. Consent Agenda
    1. Approve Minutes of June 13th Meeting
    2. Approve Bills and Wages for June 2017
    Items 1 and 2 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.

  2. Policy Updates
    This is a continuation of the policy revisions we started last month as a result of the 2017
    Montana Legislature and the transition from NCLB to ESSA at the federal level.
    1. Recommended Changes – One Reading – 8100
      We tabled this policy to get clarification on the three options listed in the final paragraph of page one and continued on to the top of page two. I spoke with Joe Brott at MTSBA, he advised that we adopt the policy with all three options. This allows the district and the
      Department of Health and Human Services to negotiate the best option for each situation that should arise.
    2. New Policy – Second Reading – 2150, 3413F1, 3413F2, 5220
      This is the second and final reading of these five recommendations.

  3. Approve Revised Contract with AWARE for Early Head Start
    After meeting with AWARE officials I recommend that we revise the utility fee in this contract from $500 to $250 per month. We are not sure what this actual cost will be as the building has not been in use since we purchased it, so we originally estimated high. This amount can be changed after one year if the actual costs are significantly different. Based on the funding they have for facilities, they were going to have to increase the cost for parents at the $500/month cost.

  4. Set Date for Budget Meeting
    We need to set a final budget meeting date. The budget has to be adopted prior to August 20th. Our August meeting falls on the earliest date possible, August 8th. If this is too far out to be sure of calendars, you could table this item and set the budget meeting date on the 8th.
