BOARD MEETING

 

    • Citizens’ Comments on Non-Agenda Items:

      • Ronda Oathes, Advisor for the Woodland Middle School Drama Program, requested approval and permission to charge/collect fees and/or participate in fundraising activities for the Woodland Middle School Drama program with a proposal. Superintendent Michael Green encouraged the Board to consider parity with other activities by providing funds to the building to cover the cost of supporting the program so students can participate without additional fees, providing equitable opportunities for students and another way to participate outside of athletics. Ronda will collaborate with James Johnston, the WMS Principal; Stacy Brown, Director of Business Services; and Superintendent Green to develop a budget of her needs for the 2017-2018 school year.

    • Reports to the Board:

 

  • Board Reports, Requests, and Comments:

    • Director Matt Donald discussed the setup of the new board meeting location in room 2203 of Woodland High School, and suggested changing the seating layout to allow the audience better viewing of projected agenda details.

  • Public Hearing:

    • Resolution 17-8 / 2016-2017 General Fund Budget Extension: Stacy Brown presented an overview of the requested budget extension, explaining that an increased expenditure in excess of the annual budget appropriation was due to increased enrollment, unbudgeted staff, Special Ed Quest Academy, and increased expenditures of Running Start students. The majority of the increased expenditures were offset by additional revenue. There were no public comments on the proposed General Fund Budget Extension.
