SPECIAL SCHOOL BOARD MEETING
14 October 2019
I. Call to Order. Matt Hartle called the Board of Trustees Special Meeting to order at 8:02 a.m. in the Creston School Library. The following members were present: Joanna Massie and Jessica Sandven-Sorensen. Absent: Arnold Bjork and Shawn McDonough. Also, in attendance: Tammy Bartos – District Clerk, Tammy Ward – Principal and Shanta Bisch-Milne – Kindergarten teacher.
II. Public Participation / Correspondence – nil.
III. Information Item(s):
A. Bus Repairs and Possible Bus Purchase. The bus has experienced problems with the transmission/engine and has been to the repair shop. It was returned to us October 11th after the transmission control module was replaced. Due to the age of the bus and the continual cost of repairs quotes to replace the bus are in process. We have sufficient money in the Bus Depreciation Fund – along with a trade in of the current bus – to purchase a bus. An update will be provided at future meetings.
IV. Consideration of Action Items:
A. Resignation of Custodian. Jessica Sandven-Sorensen moved, and Joanna Massie seconded accepting the resignation of J. Joy as received. Motion passed unanimously.
B. Approval of Hiring Process for a permanent Custodian position. As J. Joy has resigned effective last week, it is necessary to seek a replacement. Joanna Massie moved, and Jessica Sandven-Sorensen seconded to approve beginning the hiring process for a permanent part-time Custodian for the 2019-2020 school year. Motion passed unanimously.
C. Extra Duty Contract for S. Milne as Substitute Custodian. We are in immediate need of an additional Substitute Custodian. Our current staff/teachers have the required pre-employment approvals in place, so to facilitate an immediate start date they have been given the opportunity to pick up this extra duty. Shanta Bisch-Milne has accepted the offer. Jessica Sandven-Sorensen moved, and Joanna Massie seconded approval of the Extra Duty Contract for Shanta Bisch-Milne as Substitute Custodian as presented. Motion passed unanimously.
