    2. Approve Bills and Wages for October 2018
    3. Hire Substitutes
    4. Hire Classified

    Any 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.

  2. Approve Administration to Further Explore Freshman Academy
    Mr. Klasna and I met with 8th grade parents and explained the possibility of creating a Freshman Academy allowing next year's 9th graders to remain in Lockwood to start their high school experience. We followed this meeting up with a parent survey, the response has been positive on the possibility. We currently have 123 students in 8th grade and received surveys back from 74 (60%) of the parents. 58 of these parents (78% of the responses) indicated that they would like to keep their child here for their freshman year. This projects to us having at least half of the class, 60+ students. I have included information on the possible building, some example class schedules, and the comments, pro and con, we received from the parent survey. If the Board wants to move forward with this idea our next steps will be to work out an inter-local agreement with SD2, work with OPI to set up accreditation, have the students do a preliminary class registration to help determine staffing needs, and develop a draft budget. There are also some memorandums of understanding that we will likely need to work out with the Lockwood Education Association to facilitate the Freshman Academy. At this point, we need to know if you want us to continue pursing this possibility.

  3. Approve Inter-local Agreement with School District 2
    If the Board decides to move forward with exploring the Freshman Academy, then I would like to start working with SD2 right away. This draft agreement would commit Lockwood Schools to paying tuition, providing transportation and facilitating registration for any of this year’s 8th graders that want to attend the Billings high schools under the same terms as the current high school students. If approved I will get this draft to Billings Schools as a proposal.

  4. Approve Representative Agreement
    I recommend that the Board move forward by hiring CTA to oversee necessary repairs to the metal roof section of the Primary Building (2nd grade hallway) this upcoming summer. This project will be paid for out of the bond monies and is in addition to Phase II of the ongoing roofing project. After having this section evaluated this fall it has moved up our priority list significantly.
