Items Added:

  • Assessment Calendar (Discussion Agenda) - This item was moved from the September 26th agenda to the October 5th agenda.   The revised attachment accounts for days missed due to the hurricane.  Concern was expressed about the amount of kindergarten testing.   Board discussion followed.  
  • Settlement Agreement (Discussion Agenda) - Board Attorney is asking to add settlement with Robert Winter.  The case is 5 years old.  Discovery and case preparation would most likely exceed the settlement offer.
  • Student Calendar (Consent Agenda) - Superintendent and staff have calculated and believe we meet the required minutes and no makeup days are needed due to Hurricane Irma when six school days were cancelled.  However, the school calendar will need to be revised in order to meet semester requirements.  The revised calendar will move four days from 2nd semester to 1st semester one.  This change will not impact total days, just days within the semesters.

Closing Comments:

  • Mr. Broskie needs to meet with the Board in Executive Session at end of the October 5th meeting; 
  • Mr. Broskie will resend the Attorney evaluation; responses are due to Mrs. Bush by October 6th;
  • Teacher Evaluations:  245 moved from Highly to Effective; 106 moved up from Effective to Highly; the net change is 139;
