N/GRV School Board Meeting Notes
July 30, 2020
The Naselle/Grays River Valley School District Board of Directors met for a budget hearing on July 21 followed by a regular meeting to conduct the district’s business.
The district's business manager presented the proposed budget for the coming school year with projected revenue of $7,749,759 and projected expenses of $7,852,05. The budget was subsequently approved. K-12 school enrollment was forecast at 284, with unknowns around enrollment because of the pandemic.
Along with the budget presentation, the board reviewed its goals for the 2019-20 school year and began conversations for goals for the coming school year.
In other matters of business, Superintendent Lisa Nelson and interim Principal Justin Laine reviewed the district’s re-entry plan for fall. The board approved the plan for the start of school in the fall with a tentative in-person model of two days per week and online three days per week.
The goal is to become fully in-person as soon as safely permissible. It was discussed that the plan could change due to increases in covid-19 cases or other concerns outside of the district’s control, but the hope is for in-person school as much as possible. In other matters of business, the board approved the classified staff contract for the next three years.
Conversation was held regarding the changes in sports seasons as proposed by the Washington Interscholastic Athletics Association (WIAA).
The next board meeting is scheduled for August 18, beginning at 6:30 p.m., proposed to be held in the Middle School Commons.
