February 8, 2021 at 6:00 PM - Board Meeting Agenda

Agenda
Call to Order
Rationale:  It is 6:00PM and I now call to order the Crete Public Schools Board of Education Meeting.  This is the February 8, 2021 regular meeting.  Notice of this meeting has been advertised in the Crete Newspaper, which is the District's designated method of giving notice of these meetings.

We want those in attendance to know that copies of the Open Meetings Act are available at the entrance to the Board Room.  If anyone in attendance is interested in addressing our Board, you are welcome to do so.  We simply request that you complete the appropriate form and turn it into us now so that you may be recognized during the Public Forum part of our meeting.  These forms are also located by the entry doors of this room.

Ms. Banos will you please call the roll.
Roll Call
Rationale:  Seeing there is a Quorum present, we will move on to the reading of the Mission statement.
Mission Statement
Rationale:  The mission of Crete Public Schools, a diverse community of engaged individuals committed to the success of all, is to ensure learners have the character, knowledge, and skills to be respectful and productive members of a global society.  Crete Public Schools will cultivate a culture where all are challenged, empowered, and supported to reach their maximum potential.
Public Forum
Rationale:  This brings us to the Public Forum part of our meeting. During the Public Forum:
  1. Each individual addressing the Board will be allowed 5 minutes. The Board of Education has the prerogative to limit speaking to 3 minutes when there are three or more patrons to allow all speakers an opportunity to address the Board in a timely manner.
  2. We will not engage in dialogue with patrons presenting to the Board.
  3. The Board president and superintendent will identify staff to follow-up on the information requested from patrons.
  4. The Board president may share a statement on behalf of the Board when addressing a major issue in the district.
Is there anyone here that would like to address the Board during the Public Forum? (pause)

If none, we will move on to the approval of the agenda as posted.
