N/GRV School Board Meeting Notes
July 21, 2016
The Naselle-Grays River Valley School District Board of Directors met for its monthly meeting on Tuesday. The first order of business was a special hearing of the budget presentation for the 2016-17 school year.
After concluding the budget hearing, the board completed a self- evaluation and assessed its goals and objectives for next year. The special meeting was adjourned and the regular meeting began at 6:30 p.m. with the following agenda items.
Resolution 2016-7-19 was approved to adopt the Operating Budget for the 2016-17 school year. Several computer purchases were approved with Youth Camp or grant funds. These included 90 replacement i-Pads for lower elementary students for $34,500, 30 Chromebooks for upper elementary students at $12,500 and 20 i-Mac computers for Youth Camp students at $23,500. In other business, the board approved the purchase of a vehicle for the transportation fleet with Youth Camp Funds and changes to the teachers’ Comprehensive Professional Agreement up through 2019.
Superintendent Lisa Nelson discussed a misprint in the recently mailed Annual Report in which State Revenue and Local taxes/fees were transposed. The report incorrectly stated that State Revenue was $804,191 which should have been $4,275,842, and that Local taxes/fees were $4,275,842, which should have read $804,191.
Architect Erik Fagerland presented the board a variety of renderings and financial data and considerations regarding the covered play area/multi-purpose building. No decisions were made.
Nelson shared with the board that ESD 112 had done a site visit to look at possibilities for its ECEAP (early childhood) program. Currently the district has no space to accommodate the program.
The next regularly scheduled board meeting is August 16th at 6:30 p.m. at the Grays River Fire Hall.
