IV. Action Items
IV.A. Board Policy, Handbooks, and Support Programs
Rationale:  This committee is responsible for annual review of board policies, handbooks, and crisis/safety plans.  This committee is also responsible for the support and development of support programs(nursing, food service) in the district.
IV.A.1. Consider, discuss, and take action to approve a teacher's request for an overnight trip.
Rationale: 
This is the third year of the Washington DC Trip request.   Mrs. Shanda Hall is the staff member requesting your approval.  This trip is really not a school function, but because it involves our employees.  Holly Hild forwarded information to our insurance company (EMC) last year asking for approval for this event.  EMC's representative confirmed that there’s liability coverage for all employees of the school going.  They would also have work comp if they were doing something in the scope of their duties and got injured.  She didn’t see there to be any issue with the trip. Our board policy outlining overnight trip requests is included below.

CERTIFICATED EMPLOYEE TRAINING, WORKSHOPS OR CONFERENCES                      Policy 409.02
Requests for attendance or participation in a development program, other than those development programs sponsored by the school district, shall be made to the superintendent.  Approval of the superintendent or his designee with the principal’s input must be obtained prior to attendance by a certificated employee in a professional development program when the attendance would result in the certificated employee being excused from their duties or when the school district pays the expenses for the program.
Employees authorized by the superintendent or his designee to represent the school system at training, workshops and conferences will be allowed salary and expenses in conformance with regulations on expense reimbursement. Requests that involve unusual expenses or overnight travel must also be approved by the board.
The superintendent or his designee with input from the principal shall have sole discretion to allow or disallow certificated employees to attend or participate in the requested event.  When making this determination, the superintendent will consider the value of the program for the certificated employee and the school district, alignment with the school improvement process, the effect of the certificated employee's absence on the education program and school district operations and the school district's financial situation as well as other factors deemed relevant in the judgment of the superintendent or his designee. 
The requirements stated in the Negotiated Contract between employees in that certified collective bargaining unit and the board regarding professional development of such employees shall be followed.

          Mrs. Keairnes goes above and beyond for her students. She is a very caring person who works to give all kids in her class  a great opportunity to be successful. She puts in a great deal of time to try new things in her classroom, and embraces new thoughts and ideas that the school is focusing on.

High School Principal’s Report:  Mr. Grammer
Program Spotlight:  Our high school has for the past few years has worked hard to have a solid, strong, viable Family Consumer Science program at the high school.  Our FCS teacher found a job in early February in Omaha and that left us with an opening early in the year.  We tried to fill the position although the summer but, could not find a FCS teacher and we were lucky to find a teacher in house to fill that position.  In years past we struggled to fill up the classes in our FCS schedule.  This year we have had to turn students away because the classes were filled. The classes are varied and popular classes that are hands on.  The teacher has done a great job of growing this program and it has become a successful program.
Staff Member Spotlight:  The staff member to be recognized for their work in the high school this month is Mr. Jared Severson.

Staff Member/Program Spotlight:  I would like to recognize the work that our wrestling coaches have put in, they have over 60 athletes competing each week and organizing and giving those students the opportunity to get better and compete is no small task.  Mr. Gutierrez has been working very hard with the program in particular.  He has been a true team player for us at the middle school and is willing to do everything that you ask of him.

Notable Topics:  The PBL team has been doing an amazing job of programming for our students.  Their ideas are exciting and will help create a "family" type of environment in our school.
Looking ahead:  I am excited to see the process for our community meetings and strategic planning.  The school board along with the guidance of Dr. Hoesing have done a phenomenal job so far!

Special Education Director’s Report: Mrs. Vrba
Program Spotlight:  I would like to share the fact that Stacey Martin, renowned national Intensive Verbal Behavior specialist, spent a morning with our special education students and teachers who are implementing the program. Stacey works through the Summit Behavioral Health Association in Kansas City and will be presenting at the National Autism Conference in early spring of 2019.
Staff Member Spotlight:  At the beginning of the 2018 school year, Elyse Muhle (Belina) was busy building safe environments for our medically fragile students. (Yes, I said, "environments".) Along with their regular classroom, Elyse's kids have a special room that is filled with stations for instruction that are appropriate for each child's learning style and a sensory room that immensely helps her kids. (Sensory rooms are designed to "both calm and stimulate the senses" in children with special needs. Many experts would say that sensory rooms have three main purposes: to provide relaxation and enjoyment by eliminating distraction, and to increase creative sensory input.)
        Along with coaching volleyball and becoming Mrs. Belina this fall, Elyse is our first teacher who with the expertise of Bernice and Amy that has totally implemented the Intensive Verbal Behavior Program. The growth of our students' communication skills is absolutely astonishing...truly, watching Elyse working with her kids will leave you speechless and a little teary-eyed!!
        Elyse's most valued attributes are: her positive outlook on aspects of her position, her dedication to her kids, her unending work ethic and being a relentless advocate for her kids! I really cherish the moments when she celebrates with her students. Her kids might have only made tiny steps toward reaching their goals each day but she makes them feel as special as the shining star on top of your beloved family's Christmas tree!!
