Classified and certified contracts and resignations were among the topics at the Buffalo Island Central School Board Thursday, April 15.
President Bill Misner presided at the meeting.
Board member Dale Wells made a motion to renew all classified contracts and certified contracts of those wishing to be renewed. Exceptions included the Migrant and LEP employees; Poverty Index Fund employee; and Special Needs assistants. These contracts are to be renewed when funding for Migrant, LEP and Poverty Index is known for the 2004-05 school year and when need is determined next year for Special Needs Assistants. The motion carried unanimously
The board accepted the resignations of Pat Haney and Tommy Jo Masner. Haney is Title 1 at the west elementary and Masner is a west elementary teacher.
The board reviewed asphalt work bids for five separate projects on the west campus. No action was taken.
Tommy Carroll, representing the Monette City Council addressed the board concerning several items.
The first item was relocation of the access road that now exists from South Reeves street to the water plant facility. Routing electrical service-overhead verses underground to the new summer baseball field the board's preference is for the service to be underground. Carroll also asked for access to and usage of the area that immediately borders the outfield fence of the high school baseball park.
Following a discussion on the request, Board Member Gordon Miller made a motion to propose to the city that the city and school district work together and share the cost 50-50 for preparation and construction of an asphalt parking lot immediately west of the new gymnasium. This parking area could be used by both the district and the summer sports program. The motion passed unanimously.
Carroll will report to the Superintendent after the next city council meeting.
