Agenda

The Board will listen to public comment in accordance with district policy 213 and direct questions to the superintendent or the appropriate staff.
Please remember you are making comments in a public meeting.  Should you make comments that are considered defamatory in nature, you, as an individual, may be subject to legal action brought by the subject of your comments.  Board members will listen to all comments but will not respond to them, nor will the Board take action on items not posted on the agenda.  If the Board feels that something commented on requires a response they will refer it to the District Administration to respond to at a later date.

5. Approval of Agenda

      ACTION
      As a standard practice, administration asks the board to consider approving the application for additional allowable growth and supplemental aid. In addition to the overall

operating fund budget, school districts monitor revenues and expenditures of the special education program and report annually to the Department of Education.
      Districts can spend 
more than they take in for special education, but the excess expense must be covered with general fund dollars. When the district reports a negative fund
      balance in special education, 
that state allows districts to recover the spending authority for those expenditures. For the 2020-2021 fiscal year, the district spent
     approximately $241,325.13 ($365,235.41 for 2019-20 
and $339,270.92 for 2018-19) more than receivable revenue and is approximately $123,910.28 less than the previous
     year. The School Budget Review Committee (SBRC) will 
consider allowing recovery of the budget authority in October. Administration recommends approving the Request
     for Modified Allowable Growth and Supplemental Aid for FY21 Special Education deficit.
     
RECOMMENDATION
 
    Approve request for Modified Allowable Growth and Supplemental Aid for the 2020-2021 school special education deficit of $241,325.13.

8.2 Consider Approving the School Fundraisers

birth-21 and engage student voice with an MTSS framework. And lastly it will provide strategies and evidence-based practices around accelerating
      learning and close achievement 
gaps for all learners in an MTSS framework.
      RECOMMENDATION
     
Approve sending school stakeholder community team to Social Emotional Conference in Des 
Moines on November 2 and 3, 2021.

8.7 Consider Approving the Purchase of CatchLife 30
      ACTION
      Catchlife 30 will help build a solid foundation of wellness habits while promoting a positive culture of support. In addition, it will provide staff with self-care tools to help
      manage 
stressors and refuel energy for work, family, and leisure pursuits. Catchlife 30 features daily health check-ins that can be completed in five minutes or less and
      doesn’t require a fitness 
tracker. The five areas of focus include hydration, physical activity, nutrition, social-emotional health, and sleep. The cost is $10 per person. This
      program was done last year and 
well received by employees.
      RECOMMENDATION
     
Approve the purchase of Catchlife 30 for all staff using self-funding money and general fund.

8.8 Consider Approving a Substitute Incentive
      ACTION
      To help build our substitute teacher list, Administrative is requesting an incentive for those substitutes who accept five consecutive sub job offers. The incentive is $50.
      RECOMMENDATION
     
Approve the $50 incentive substitute pay for those who work five consecutive days.

8.9 Consider Approving the Home School Assistance Teacher Contracts for 2021-2022
      ACTION
      There are 21 enrolled in Competent Private Instruction (CPI) and 6 enrolled in the Independent Private Instruction (IPI). Students who are enrolled under CPI provide us
      with 
the curriculum they are taught and are eligible for dual enrollment. Students who completed the IPI forms do not have to report any academic progress and are not
      eligible for any 
services in the school. Of the 21 CPI students, 11 are eligible for dual enrollment. Dual enrollment allows them to attend classes, participate in field trips, use
      the library, and 
participate in school activities. These students generate revenue depending on their grade and the extent they participate in CCSD classes and activities.
      Eleven of the 21 students are 
interested in participating in the Home School Assistance (HSA) program. The HSA program provides a teacher who oversees their academic
      work (15 hours per quarter per 
student). In exchange for that oversight, the district receives some funding to pay a certified teacher to provide the services. When the
      enrollment count is complete, you will see partial 
numbers, which indicates the weighting CCSD gets for students who are not full-time. Mrs. Davies is a certified teacher
      who at one time worked as a special education teacher in 
our district. As in the past, we have had an agreement with Mrs. Davies to serve as our HSA teacher for those
      students who would like her assistance. By having her serve as the HSA 
teacher, she receives $15 per hour per student for up to 60 hours per student each year. Parents of the
      students in the program are asked to sign a time sheet that verifies Mrs. Davies 
has actually provided services for those students at the end of each quarter. Mrs. Davies will
      meet with Mrs. McKinnon and Mrs. Bergman quarterly to verify student progress and accurate invoicing.
      RECOMMENDATION
      Approve contracts with Lexy Davies to serve as the Home School Assistance teacher for the 2021-2022 school year.

8.10 Consider Not Offering Early Retirement for the 2021-2022 School Year
 
       ACTION
 
        Early retirement is intended to benefit the district’s fiscal position and quality student services. Due to Auditor recommendations, state and national teacher shortages, and
        CCSD 
district budget guarantee status, it is being recommended not to offer early retirement for the 2021-2022 school year. With declined enrollment and COVID, the
        district was identified 
with Budget Guarantee (Iowa Code 257.14) status which is passed on to the taxpayers through property tax.
        RECOMMENDATION
  
       Approve not offering early retirement for the 2021-2022 school year.

8.11 Consider Approving Early Notification Incentives for Certified Staff
 
       ACTION
 
       Administration is recommending early incentives for certified staff who will not be returning to teach for the 2022-2023 school year. This supports early hiring to fill those
        open 
positions. Employees cannot retract once Board approved. In order to qualify for $1500, written notification must be sent to Mrs. McKinnon by November 5th at 4:00
        p.m. In order to 
qualify for $1000, written notification must be sent to Mrs. McKinnon by January 7th at 4:00 p.m. In order to qualify for $500, written notification must be
        sent to Mrs. McKinnon by 
February 4th at 4:00 p.m. These dates will allow potential approvals at the next week’s Board meeting.
 
       RECOMMENDATION
 
       Approve certified staff early notification incentive of $1500 with electronic notification by November 5th, $1000 with electronic notification by January 7th, and $500 with
        electronic 
notification by February 4th to Mrs. McKinnon by 4:00 p.m.

8.12 Consider Approving the First Reading of Policy 508.2 Open Night
        ACTION
       There are several requests to use the 7-12 gym on Sundays. The Hawkeye -10 has issued guidance for open night to be from 12:00 to 6:00 and only for shooting practices
       with no 
scrimmages. It is being recommended that policy 508.2 reflect and follow the Hawkeye-10 guidance.     Policy
       RECOMMENDATION
       Approve the first reading of policy 508.2 Open Night.

8.13 Consider Approving the Second and Final Reading of Policy 705.1 Purchasing-Bidding
        ACTION
        Because of the higher food cost, growing free meals, and year-round summer lunch 
operations, the food service costs are getting close to the $50,000 mark. It is being
        recommended to increase the bid limit from $50,000 to $60,000. Anything exceeding $60,000 will need to go through the request for proposal (RFP) or competitive bid
        process.   Policy

        RECOMMENDATION
        Approve the second and final reading of policy 705.1 Purchasing-Bidding.

       RECOMMENDATION
        Approve the 28E Agreement with Glenwood Community School District for the 2021-2022 school year.

8.15 Consider Approving the Chiller Maintenance Agreement
        ACTION
        The chiller at the 7-12 building was replaced in the spring of 2019. It is located outside and needs to be winterized each fall with the help of a Trane technician. Mr. Hill is
        recommending a maintenance agreement with Moore Services, who installed the chiller. This would include a spring start-up and inspection, a fall shut down and
        winterization, and 
one coil condenser cleaning.
        Letter      Agreement

        RECOMMENDATION
        Approve the chiller maintenance agreement with Moore Services for $2095.00 

8.16 Discussion/Possible Action on second meeting in November and second monthly Meetings
