September 21, 2016 at 2:00 PM - Building, Grounds, Transportation and Finance Committees Meeting @ SCHS Library Annex
I. Discussion Items
Rationale: 

1.  Finance/Budget Report:  See attached budget and finance reports.

2.  Safety Items:  We need to make sure to keep your maintenance tools, ladders, etc.... put away and not left unattended.  Insurance companies call these unattended items targets for liability and will come down hard on us if we are negligent.  Also any spills, water, ice that could be the cause for falls must be taken care of immediately.

3.  Portal:   Thank you to the maintenance/custodial staff for your work on keeping the maintenance portal up to date.  This document keeps the board and administration abreast to the progress on requested maintenance items.


4.  Buildings and Grounds:  Phase III of the preschool project is nearly completed.  The Homestead Center is open and traffic is picking up.  Work on the High School West Lobby and trophy cases were completed last summer.  We held the ribbon cutting for the new field house at the middle school on Monday, Sept 5th.  The field turf is completed and we have several people beginning the cleanup of that installation.  The basketball and volleyball courts are still up in the air for completion pending the moisture content.  I will be working with Bierman Contracting, Inc. on installing the volleyball standards either later this week, or early next week. 

5. Transportation:  The new bus is scheduled to be here on Sept. 27th.  Thank you to all bus drivers.  The board will be discussing bus driver wages on the support staff salary schedule this fall for the 2017-18 school year. 

6.  Fall Technology Fair:  The fall technology fair is scheduled over the Parent-Teacher Conference in October.  High school students will be in attendance along side PT Conferences on Wednesday, October 12th.  Staff workshops are scheduled for Thursday, October 13th.

7.  Safety Surveys:  Your principals have been given the new safety manuals for each building.  We are conducting a follow-up safety inspection and will have a NDE visitation this year.  Nesbitt and Associates will be conducting a follow-up safety inspection early this fall to see if we have corrected areas of concern from the 2015-16 study.

8. Strategic Plan Update:  We will be finalizing our progress reports on the district strategic plan during the month of October.  We are scheduled to revisit the plan as a staff/community in November.

9.  Salary and Benefit Schedule:  We will be offering on open enrollment period for changing insurance programs beginning in January 2017.  This dual option allows employees to elect to participate in a high deductible ($3,500) and use the premium savings to enroll in a healthcare savings account.  We will let you know when the representative from Blue Cross will be here to answer any questions you may have.
