CALL TO ORDER

President Watts called the meeting to order at 5:30 p.m.

CITIZENS REQUESTS TO ADDRESS THE BOARD ON NON-AGENDA ITEMS

Don Stewart addressed the board directors on three topics. First, he was requesting that next year’s bus turn around location for Yale not be at the fire station. He expressed his concerns that it would interfere with the fire trucks. Second, he doesn’t like the idea that YCC (Yale Child Care) would not continue next school year. Third, he commented that he would like to see the classified employees receive a substantial salary increase unlike what has happened in the past ten years.

Superintendent Green requested of Board President Janice Watts the opportunity to respond. First, Mr. Green and Shannon Barnett, Director of Transportation, will look closer at the bus turn around options. Second, based on the participation rate of YCC where only one student is irregularly utilizing the program, a decision was made to close the program except for Monday mornings. The program can always be reopened if the need is there in the future. Third, the current collective bargaining agreement with classified employees is currently in bargaining, and in respect of that process would not provide detailed information about proposals at this time; however, Superintendent Green assured Mr. Stewart that much of the data he presented to the board was grossly inaccurate and that the school district and union are bargaining salaries and plans to be fair to all employees. Mr. Green noted that the classified employees received a market-based salary adjustment two years ago and have consistently and regularly received cost of living increases.
