3.1 The first agenda item is to appoint someone to the Plymouth Public Library Board. The recommendation will be to reappoint Lisa Miller.
3.2 The next item is to appoint someone to the Redevelopment Commission. This appointment has to be someone from the Board.
3.3 On the third item, Mr. Tyree will ask the Board to roll over administrative contracts. Principals and Central Office Administrators generally work under a three-year contract. Assistant Principals and Directors generally work under a two-year contract. We have moved these appointments to December because Dec. 31 is the legal date for notification of the dismissal of administrators. Mr. Tyree will recommend that all contracts should be rolled over.
3.4 After holding a Legal Hearing for the Superintendent’s contract in November, the Board President will make a recommendation for rolling over the Superintendent’s contract along with the raise advertised in the hearing. The Superintendent’s contract is generally a four-year contract.
3.5 In the December meeting, Mr. Tyree has to make a recommendation for the date of the first Board meeting in January. His recommendation will be to hold the first meeting on January 8, 2013. There will actually be two meetings in January. The first meeting is a regular school board meeting. The second meeting is a board of finance meeting.
3.6 Aimee Portteus, Guidance Director at Plymouth High School, will give a report on last year’s graduating class. She will also report on the ACT/SAT results of this year’s senior class.
3.7 Mr. Funston will present new administrative guidelines and polices to the Board for their second reading. This is an action item for the policies only. After the Board has approved the policies, both the administrative guidelines and policies will go into our Board Policies.
3.8 Mrs. Riise will give a report on the ENL and Migrant grants. Her report will explain how the rules and regulations from these grants have changed and how we are now legally permitted to spend the money in those grants.
3.9 Mrs. Tinkey will ask the Board for a year-end resolution to transfer funds and to pre-write checks. This is typically done at the end of the year to prepare for the next budget year and to ensure that we don’t incur interest or penalties for paying vendors late.
3.10 Mrs. Tinkey will ask the board to pass a resolution giving the corporation the authority to advertise for temporary warrants. In plain terms, we are asking permission to borrow money so that we have the cash flow to meet payroll and pay vendors. And, we all want to get paid!
3.11 In the last business item, Mrs. Tinkey will ask the Board to sign an agreement with an Indiana Health Care Provider. Basically, we are signing an agreement with a company that will process our Medicaid claims.
