2.3. Discuss, Consider, and Approve the addition of a 0.5 FTE Early Childhood Coordinator
Rationale: 
At our last Board meeting, I visited with you about our Sixpence Grant application, which included the addition of a 1/2 time Early Childhood Coordinator.  We have received lots of indications that we will receive this grant, but we won't receive official notification for a few weeks.  
 
However, we know that we need an ECH Coordinator to assist with our growing birth to three and Preschool programs, regardless of whether we receive the Sixpence Grant.  Therefore, I am asking your permission to go ahead and make this 0.5 FTE staffing addition, while there are still quality people available to fill the position.

Recommended Motion(s):  Motion to approve the addition of a 0.5 FTE Early Childhood Coordinator Motion passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
