Final placement of certified staff on unrequested leaveAt the April 11 meeting, the Board approved a proposal to place a number of certified staff on unrequested leave of absence for the 2017-2018 school year. Since that meeting, none of the teachers or learning resource teachers who were included in the proposal requested a hearing. Failure to request a hearing is deemed acquiescence to the proposed action; therefore four learning resource teachers were placed on unrequested leave of absence.
Facilities Development ProposalAt its meeting on March 14, the Board directed the administration to create a facilities development proposal addressing the needs across the District as identified by the facilities task force. The Board also asked the administration to estimate the associated costs and to create a timeline that would eventually allow the Board to propose a bond referendum for this fall. Superintendent Chris Lennox presented a proposal for the Board’s review and discussion. To view the presentation, visit here.
District Operational Plan
The 2017-2018 draft District Operational Plan (DOP) - which was developed by the Superintendent and his Cabinet - was presented to the Board for initial discussion. The DOP is the annual administrative work plan of the District. It is directly related to the District's vision and to the School Board's strategic directions for the year. A final plan will be presented and approved at the June 13 Board meeting.
