2.01 Approval of an amendment to the Alternative Schedule for Peavine Elementary and Sparks High School.
2.07 Although this item only addresses the requirement for the Superintendent to submit a report identifying the Student Behavior Manual as the progressive discipline plan, here is the Behavior Manual for anyone interested in reviewing it.
2.08 Approval of rehiring retired teachers to fill positions for which there is a critical labor shortage. Snapshot of teacher shortages as of September 28, 2021.
2.09 Approval of the Dave and Cheryl Duffield Foundation of $300,000. When you look at the agenda material it does not attach the grant agreement where the donor gives instructions on how they want the funds used.
(can make a public comment on each agenda item)
3.01 If you want to hear more about the future Elementary School in the Rio Wrangler Area, it looks like the capital funding protection committee gave the go ahead and now the Board will listen to a presentation, have discussion and take the next step toward final approval on this project.
3.02 The Board of Trustees Redistricting Map options are available for review and will be presented for discussion and possible approval.
