4. Action Items
4.1. Approve Changes to NPS Foundation By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation
Rationale:  The NPS Foundation Board has approved a change to their by-laws and Articles of Incorporation, which would allow them to change the size of their board of directors from a maximum of 15 to a maximum of 21.  However, they also need the NPS BOE to approve this change, and are asking that you do so.  They have also added a provision that would allow for these new members' terms to expire in different years, so they do not have a large turn over in board members in one year.  

The NPS Foundation Board voted unanimously to adopt these changes and Sarah Dittmer is here to answer any questions that you might have.
Recommended Motion(s):  Motion to approve the changes proposed to the NPS Foundation's By-Laws and Articles of Incorporation related to their Board of Directors Motion passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
4.2. Resignations
Rationale:  Penelope Henriksen - First Grade Teacher at Westside (retiring)
Bruce Shively - Senior High Social Studies Teacher and Head Girls Basketball Coach (retiring)
Patrick Mencke - Kindergarten Teacher at Bel Air (marriage and relocation)
Debby Abshier - Senior High School Family and Consumer Science (retiring)
Jana Jenkins- Senior High School Technology Coordinator (retiring)
Recommended Motion(s):  Motion to accept the resignations of Penelope Henriksen, Bruce Shively, Patrick Mencke, Debby Ashier, and Jana Jenkins effective at the end of the 2013-2014 school year Motion passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
4.3. Permission to Let Bids for Replacement Computers
Rationale:  It is time for the district to replace a large number of desktop computers (approximately 220).  We are estimating that the cost will be approximately $120,000.  Granting permission at this time will allow us to purchase these and install them during the summer break.  
Recommended Motion(s):  Motion to approve the letting of bids for replacement computers. Motion passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
5. Executive Session
5.1. Convene Executive Session
Rationale:  I recommend that we move into Executive Session at this time to discuss compensation practices and salary schedules for classified and administrative staff, as necessary for the protection of public interest.  No action will be taken in Executive Session. In fact, we do not anticipate taking any action on this item today.  Our hope is that we will be ready to bring a related action item to the April 14th board meeting.
Recommended Motion(s):  Motion to go into Executive Session at this time to discuss compensation practices and salary schedules for classified and administrative staff, as necessary for the protection of public interest. Motion passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
5.2. Reconvene Meeting from Executive Session
5.3. Approve any action deemed necessary as a result of Executive Session
6. Future Meetings
Rationale:  Our next Board Meeting is scheduled for Monday, April 14th. We are planning to have the Strategic Action Planning Committees share their plans with you at that meeting.  Due to this, I am expecting a fairly long meeting and am recommending that we forego our regular 5:30 Study Session and begin our Regular meeting at 5:30.  Is this acceptable to everyone?

If so, our next meeting will be Monday, April 14th at 5:30 in the City Chamber Offices.  A Board Supper will be served in the City Conference room at 5:00.  Board business will not be discussed during the board supper.
7. Adjourn
