Board Members who provided a report and their affiliated topic(s) are below:
 

Matt Susin

  • FHSAA Decision to Seperate Girls/Boys for Wrestling Teams:  Due to the late decision, the district was unable to secure a stipend for the girl's coach.  His intent is to speak to the Superintendent on ways to fill this gap until a stipend is in place.  Dr. Mullins explained that Title IX requires us to have a coach.
     
  • Teacher Paperwork/Form Workload:  Mr. Susin explained his intent to begin looking for any reductions to allow more time in classrooms.
     
  • 403B/401K/457:  Mr. Susin stated that employees are loosing money due to seperating their retirement investments into different accounts.  He explained to the Board his intent to ask our current 403B/401K/457 providers for information.
L. Superintendent's Report
32. Superintendent's Report

Dr. Mullins provided the Board and audience with reassurance pertaining to our millage resolution submission to the County Commisioner's Office for approval on their agenda.  The County Commissioner's legal team reviews all of their agenda items to ensure compliance with their processes.  He clarified that BPS submitted the item long before the due date set by the County.

M. Public Comments (Non-Agenda Topics)
33. Public Comments (Non-Agenda Topics)

Speakers were reminded of the three minute time limit for non-agenda items as well as the decorum expected while speaking.

Four individuals signed up to address the Board.  

Dr. Mullins clarified some misunderstanding regarding book fairs.  He stated that the district is evaluating this topic and believe their is a reasonable opportunity for us to meet the requirements of  statute while still providing book fairs to our schools and students.  The district has the responsibility to review the books coming into our schools which has always been part of the process while working with vendors.
