Robin will talk to speech therapist, David Brainard, and ask him to retest and evaluate the students to see if they qualify at the State Departments level for speech service.  The board may need to look into state funding for the next school year.

The teacher’s salary schedule needs to be updated to really reflect what the teachers are being paid.  Jason will work on.  The school board needs to let Chris Steinlicht, Power County Clerk, know by March 16th if they plan on having a supplemental levy election on May 15th.  With the legislature still in session, unfreezing the teacher’s salary schedule and not knowing exactly what the funding will be the motion was moved by Jake and seconded by Jason for the need for a supplemental levy in the amount of $30,000.00 for one year for the purpose of paying all lawful expenses of maintaining and operating the District for the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2012 and ending June 30, 2013.

The board reviewed, discussed and made some changes to a bus analysis Jake had prepared to help with preparing the bus driver contracts that end at the end of this school year.  Cheri will get a copy to the bus drivers so they can review it before March’s meeting.  A list of minor and major repairs for the Fitch bus was gone over.  Juli is still working on getting the cost together.

The next meeting will be held on March 13, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.  The motion was moved and seconded to adjourn the meeting.  The meeting adjourned at 9:10 p.m.
