9. REPORTS & COMMENTS
9.1. Principals, Administrators, and Directors
9.2. Superintendent
9.2.1. Congratulations to Deb Harkless on her retirement, and belated congratulations to Kyle Hoehner and Greg Bacon on their retirements submitted at the prior board meeting--regrettable oversights in my comments due to COVID on the brain! Thank you to each of them for their years of service to students and our school district, and best wishes in their retirements. 
9.2.2. Congratulations to the Graduating Class of 2020! This class broke the LHS record for having the highest graduation rate with an amazing 93.8% graduating. Kudos to our teachers, admin, support staff, students, and parents on this terrific accomplishment. Special thanks to outgoing principal Kyle Hoehner who has always made earning the diploma his top priority. Breaking this record in his final year is the "icing on the cake" of a distinguished career in public education. 
9.2.3. The rescheduled graduation ceremony will be at 10 AM on Saturday, July 25. We have discussed a range of formats depending on the social distancing requirements that may be in force.
9.2.4. Thank you to all of our teachers, counselors, food service staff, and administrators who have been helping students and families through the COVID-19 crisis. Their dedication and extraordinary efforts have been inspiring.
9.2.5. We are working on summer school plans at all levels, including Zooming with teachers and counselors, discussing formats, and considering possible dates. We will have plans finalized soon!
9.2.6. Our 2020-2021 hiring process is nearly complete with only one teaching position yet to be filled. We had 23 certificated staff resignations or retirements; over 90% of currently employed certificated staff members will be returning next year.
9.2.7. Bo and I toured Tyson on Friday to see all that the company is doing to protect their workers. They are utilizing plexiglass barriers, infrared body temperature scanners, automated hand sanitizer stations, copious safety-related signage, queuing and door changes, constant cleaning, among other steps. They are doing a lot. We may need to copy some of their solutions when we reopen.
9.2.8. We have a technology & curriculum committee meeting this Friday at 6 AM unless you want to change the time? Cindy, Travis, and Garth on that committee. 
9.3. Board members
