1.) Call to Order; Pledge of Allegiance
2.) Requests to Address the Board
3.) Report of the Superintendent-
1.) District Update
2.) Personnel- I plan to vote in favor of this item
3.) Performace Objectives for Central Office Team- I plan to vote in favor of this item
4.) Approval of Naviance Contract- I tentatively plan to vote in favor of this item
1.) Voting Delegates for Delegate Assembly (to the Pennsylvania School Board Assocation)- I will abstain from voting on this item as I do not support the continued involvement of the EPSD as part of the PSBA. I believe that money could be better spent...anywhere else or better still, not spent at all!
1.) Second Reading: Board Policy 116.1 Exceptions to Academic Sequence
2.) First Reading: Board Policy 206- Assignment Within District
I wonder, where are the drafts of the proposed policy changes Ms. Donches submitted to the administration several months ago? I will inquire about this at the meeting.
6.) Business Operations
1.) Approval of Bill List- I will continue to abstain on this item.
2.) Interim Real Estate Tax Bills:
RESOLVED, That the East Penn Board of School Directors not issue interim real estate tax bills if the additional tax revenue to be generated would be less than $50.
I tentatively plan to vote against this measure UNLESS it would result in significant cost savings to the district.
3.) Record of Investments- I tentatively plan to vote in favor of this item.
4.) Food Services Management Contract- I'm not certain of how I will vote on this item. It will depend on how the discussion goes during the meeting. As of now, I am leaning towards abstaining on this item to be consistent with my prior abstention on the "Lunch Ladies" contract at a prior meeting.
5.) Disbursement of Funds- I plan to vote in favor of this item.
The agenda is missing an "Approval of Minutes" which is fairly boiler plate and appears on every other agenda. I have been provided with a copy of the minutes from the last meeting. I emailed my fellow Board Members and the administration to alert them to what was, I suspect an oversight. I plan to vote in favor of approving the minutes.
