The Skyline R-II Board meeting met in regular session on Wednesday January 18, 2017 with all 7 members present. The consent agenda items consisting of Board minutes, bills and financial statement were presented and approved.
In old business: Charles McDonald from MR Ranch Bus Transportation presented the Board with a proposal to lease buses to the school district. The Board did not make a decision at this time. They are still considering all options to the bus fleet situation. The Board received an update on the purchase of a new lawn mower.
In new business: The Board approved the Election Notice as presented. Skyline has 3 positions that will be up for renewal. Only one person filed to run for the Board. Therefore, we will have an election to fill the other two spots. Anyone wanting to run will have to file a declaration of interest. Superintendent Curtis discussed amending the budget to account for some unexpected expenses that have occurred this year. Changes will be made and presented at the next meeting. The Board has started a discussion on a calendar for the next school year. The main discussion is going to be the length, number of days, of the calendar. There were no program evaluations or policies this month.
