January 23, 2014 at 12:00 PM - Board of Education 2nd Monthly Meeting
1. Call to Order
1.1. Roll Call
Rationale:  If any board member is absent, there will need to be a  motion to excuse the absence.
2. Declaration of a Legal Meeting
Rationale:  This is a legal meeting of the board of education. A complete copy of the Open Meetings Act is posted on the east wall of the board room for your review. A copy of the agenda is available at the desk of the recording secretary.

3. Resolution of Contract Dissolution
Rationale:  Due to changes in Board Policy 3540 (Procedures for Bidding Construction Projects) it has become necessary for us to reconsider our contract with Heartland Roofing Consultants.

Policy 3540 requires the district to utilize specific bidding procedures for any building or site improvement project that exceeds $40,000.  It also requires the district to utilize the services of an architect or engineer for any building project that exceeds $100,000. Our contract with Heartland does not include provisions for either of these requirements.

Although our current contract with Heartland Roofing Consultants is effective through December 31, 2016, Heartland has agreed to dissolve this contract pending payment of $15,000 for services performed to date. Mr.  Witte has reviewed this proposal and indicates that $15,000 is a fair and reasonable amount of compensation for the services provided by Heartland, which were satisfactory in nature.

Because the School Board approved the initial contract with Heartland Roofing Consultants, we need the board to pass a resolution to dissolve this contract.
Recommended Motion(s):  resolution to dissolve the contract between NPS and Heartland Roofing Consultants for Project Management Services. Motion passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
4. Superintendent Evaluation
Rationale:  The board will complete their 1st evaluation of Superintendent, Dr.  Jami Jo Thompson.
5. Executive Session
Rationale:  Discussion regarding the Superintendent Evaluation will include Dr. Thompson's strengths, as well as areas where the board would like to see changes or improvement.
Recommended Motion(s):  I move that the Board of Education move into Executive Session to discuss the Superintendent Evaluation, as necessary for the protection of public interest and/or the prevention of needless injury to the reputation of an an individual, given that individual has not requested a public meeting. Motion passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
6. Reconvene Meeting from Executive Session
7. Approval of Any Action Deemed necessary as a Result of Executive Session
Rationale:  No action is anticipated as a result of Excecutive Session.  
8. Adjourn
