Board members Marty Braster and Michelle Moore were appointed to serve on a Policy Committee Review Board for the Good Conduct Policy. The board heard from new activities director Greg Fisher who was attending his first meeting. Fisher said he was interested in making the punishment part of the policy more equitable as well as making the policy more pro-active to help stop students from making violations.
The board once again discussed the purchase of a Suburban. They approved the purchase of a 2013 Chevrolet Suburban for $33,831. The purchase will be made through Pete Harkness in Centerville. They then approved a bill from Evers Construction for $68,400 to pay for the high school paving project. They also okayed donating two presidential busts that had been housed in Mystic Elementary to the city of Mystic. They were originally from Mystic High School.
Changes to the Lakeview Elementary handbook and the Centerville Preschool handbook were approved. The board then began their review of the 700 series of policies. This is part of their annual review of policies. The board approved the first reading of the policies.
On the request of board member Braster at a previous meeting, the board began to review the Athletic Department’s annual goals. Activities Director Fisher said he would like to meet with coaches in the coming days to discuss the current goals the athletic department has and how they mesh with the school district’s overall mission and goals. The discussion will also include performing arts programs and the Iowa Athletic Association goals. The board and Fisher discussed hopefully having some feedback and direction in September or October.
The board then approved sports officials’ contracts. The board then heard from administrators before approving bills and adjourning.
The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, Sept. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Administration Building.
