Mr. Susin - one issue we miss is why they come to school. They need an activity, some sort of bond from the student to the school.  That responsibility is not so much on the shool.  Engage community partner. going to create a coalition inside the eau gallie corridor.  Bring commuity into line to help support. Ms. Belford - community mapping project is where we need to begin. to identify grouping. 

43. Teacher Salary Legislation
HB 641 - Teacher Salary Increase Allocation v2 06 30 2020 (002).pdf

Ms. Campbell asked for this to be on the agenda for discussion.  There will be lost of questions about House Bill 641 Teacher Salary Increase Allocation.  Dr. Beth Thedy, Deputy Superintendent and Chief Human Resource Officer came to the podium to provide information. 

She explained the general provisions of the bill and how the funds are to be allocated. She stated that the District shall maintain the minimum base salary and cannot reduce the salary increases in any subsequent year, unless specifically authorized in the General Appropriations Act.   The Distarict must develop a salary distribution plan and submit to the School Board for approval.

44. Discussion Point - Letters to be Mailed

Mr. Susin commented there may be times when Board members would like to send out letters to constituents such as congratulations letters and currently there are not funds identified in the Board budget for postage.  He asked that there be some conversation to be able to accomodate this type of request.
