6.5. August Board Meeting
Discussion:  As stated in my email on June 30. The August 14th date is also the back to school night for all of the schools so I am guessing that a few of you and building administrators will be unable to attend the meeting. This would change the board meeting to Monday, August 21 with our board budget meeting on Monday, August 28. 
6.6. Property exchange
Discussion:  This family has found and has worked with Bob Blevins to draw up the paperwork to find an equal exchange of property to have their children attend Seward Public Schools. Their property is currently in the East Butler district and the other property is located in the Seward district which is outlined in the document. The mother works for Sixpence and is housed at the Elementary. Her daughter was denied last year to option enrollment because of class size and would have also been denied this year because we have 22-23 students in first grade per class. The process is if approved by 60% by our board and also 60% by the East Butler Board it goes to the State Board of Education for final approval. Typically people never find someone to exchange properties with and in our history, we have done this a few times, but never during Greg's time. I would recommend this exchange of property since the family has done all of the legal work and we would end up getting a little more revenue.
