Regular Meeting of the Board of Education

As of this writing District 6 has received all but one double payment of GSA (General State Aid). We are expecting to receive one (1) additional double aid ($185,000) payment prior to the close of the fiscal year on June 30, 2003. Single GSA payments are $92,832 each. We are also waiting for $21,000 for ADA Safety and Educational Block grant.
The preliminary FY ’04 Budget in still in the works. As of this writing, only estimated disbursements (expenses) are indicated. The figures in pencil above the typed figures are current estimated figures. The typed figures are last year’s budget figures. At the July meeting a more finely tuned budget will once again be presented. The tentative (FY ’04) budget will be placed on public display following the August Board meeting for thirty (30) days prior to its adoption and public hearing at the September Board meeting.
In your packets are copies of the minutes of the Midstate Conference superintendent’s meeting held on June 6, 2003 @ El Paso. The minutes are self-explanatory. I will share the minutes with the principals and athletic directors for their input. As a Board, I would appreciate your comments and suggestions.
The Capital Development Board (CDB) has vouchered our last payment from the South Construction grant in the amount of $85,000. A final punch list has been presented to the contractors, which must be completed before remaining funds are disbursed.
Pending any questions from the audience, the final amending process should take a few minutes. The amended FY ’03 budget was on public display in the Unit Office for the required thirty (30) days notice was published in a newspaper of general circulation in the District.
The bill requires a public body to keep the verbatim record for at least 18 months and states that the record is closed to the public and shall not be open for public inspection. If civil action is brought regarding an alleged violation of the Open Meetings Act, the court may conduct an "in camera" examination of the verbatim record to see if the Act was violated
The attached Prevailing Wage Ordinance is a yearly ritual. This year the publication cost is being equally shared between Fieldcrest, Roanoke-Benson and Eureka CUSD 140. The notice will appear in the Woodford County Journal in all three (3) editions.
Due to a scheduling conflict with Semester Exams, the previously adopted (4/22/03) ’03-’04 Calendar must be amended. January 14th was originally a School Improvement Day. This will now become a regular day of attendance. January 20th, originally a regular day of attendance will now be the new date for the School Improvement Day.
The attached Registration and Extracurricular fees have not been changed since first viewed by the Board in January. The fees are realistic. The only addition to the fee list is an increase in lunch prices for adults and children. The attached list shows previous costs and current costs. The lunch revenues are based on average daily meals served.
The attached list has been double-checked for accuracy prior to being shared with the High School Booster Club. The Board may approve these fees. I also suggest that prior to the beginning of the fall sports season a statement of rationale and administration be crafted by the Board of Education and the Administration. The unit bookkeeper will establish a separate account for the Freshmen Sports Programs.
Purpose: Appointment, Employment, Compensation, Discipline, Performance, or Dismissal of Personnel
