Open Forum:

           Mrs. Dyer, parent of a 4th grade student, addressed the Board that she had a complaint about the 4th grade lunch.  When she went to identify the aide Board Member Steve Richey said they would have to address it in executive session as she was going to name names.    Mrs. Dyer, and all of the 4th grade parents that were there stated that they could wait for executive session.

           Grisel Alderson, a bus driver, addressed the Board.  She said that she spent the morning cleaning off her school bus.  She asked the Board is there any chance that the buses could be inside maybe a bus garage?  She stated that her bus, along with others, sits out all night in this weather and she says her bus was tampered with as she cannot lock her door on the bus.  If the buses are inside they wouldn’t have to clean them off, the buses would start on these cold mornings and there wouldn’t be any tampering.  The Board listened and said they would look into it.  Bus garages don’t come cheap.  

 

Items for Discussion:

        

  1. Committee Report(s) – Athletic Committee Sports Co-op Update – Jason Penman said they       have had numerous meeting at Indian Creek, one last Thursday where their Board met with    members of their community and they listened to people in their community.  One of the items      discussed was if this meant we would be consolidating with them, not at this time this was to talk about the sports co-op only.  Mr. Penman said that it is up to Indian Creek and we would       wait for their decision.
  2. Goal Setting Next Steps – the Board talked about this in length.  They said it would not do any    good if they presented their goals without teacher input.  There needs to be dialog between the          board and the staff.
