THE CITY REBORN FROM THE ASHES OF AMERICA'S MOST DISASTROUS FOREST FIRE
Peshtigo School Board May Vote On "Facility Solutions"
Issue Date: December 2, 2020
Action on a "Middle/High School Facility Solution" is among a long list of items on the agenda for Peshtigo School Board at its meeting at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9 in the elementary cafeteria.
For months the board has been discussing options for solving problems with the existing middle school/high school building, and two proposals for remodeling, renovating and expanding the existing building are among solutions being explored.
On at least two prior occasions in recent years district electors rejected referendum votes to build a new middle/high school and/or extensively remodel the existing one.
After concluding other business the board will go into closed executive session for District Administrator Evaluation and to discuss compensation for support staff, administration and director for the 2020-2021 school year. The agenda provides for action on any of the closed session items after the board returns to open session before adjournment.
During the early part of the meeting the board is expected to approve the proposed 2020-2021 collective bargaining agreement with the Peshtigo Education Association as well as 2021-2022 high school and middle school course description booklets, and Start College Now applications. There also may be action on hirings, resignations and retirements and accepting donations of $250 or more.
Approval is expected on second readings of a long list of new or revised policies covering Quorums, Special Meetings, Public Participation at Board Meetings, Meeting Minutes, Legal Counsel, and Conflict of Interest, as well as English Language Proficiency, New Title IX Regulations for Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Sex in Education Programs or Activities;, Independent Educational Evaluation; School Performance and Accountability Reports; Job Descriptions; Job Sharing; Reduction in Staff; Use of Tobacco and Nicotine by Professional Staff; Outside Activities of Staff; Threatening Behavior Toward Staff Members; Assignment and Transfer, and more.
Policies governing students include Eligibility of Resident/Nonresident Students; Graduation Requirements; Use of Tobacco and Nicotine by Students; Use of Seclusion and Physical Restraint with Students.
Policies governing finances include Debt Management and handling of Gifts, Grants, and Bequests.
Others on the proposed policy revision list govern use of Tobacco and Nicotine on School Premises, and a new policy regulating use of Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones) on school property is slated for adoption, along with polices governing Animals on District Property; Operations, Epidemics and Pandemics, and Fraud.
