REPORTS TO THE BOARD

BOARD REPORTS, REQUESTS, AND COMMENTS
Director Madsen made a motion to change the name of the $50K -for-20 scholarship program to Woodland High School Career Pathways Scholarship Program, continue providing the same $2500.00 scholarships to 20 students and continue with the same selection process as has been used in the past two years.
Director Donald mentioned the tardy data provided by Superintendent Green and questioned if the new school start times could be affecting the higher numbers. Director Donald suggested the board review the school start times to consider tardiness. The board discussed the concern and felt that it was premature to review start times based on a single metric. It was decided that the board would do a more thorough review of school schedules using multiple metrics later in the year, and give the new start times a little more time for students and families to adjust.
Director Beuscher noted how much she enjoyed the Career Day and job fair at Woodland High School.
Director Beuscher moved to approve the consent agenda.
