Trustees to meet Thursday
A decision on the Legal Services position will be among the items considered Thursday when the Churchill County School District Board of Trustees holds its first regularly scheduled meeting of June.
The meeting is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. in the district administration office, 690 S. Maine St.
Legal Services will be determined after trustees interview three applicants: Charles Woodman and Scott Jamieson (Reno), Jeffrey Blanck and Martin Crowley (Reno and Fallon), and Sharla Hales (Minden). The firms have provided proposals in response to the district’s Request for Proposals for Legal Services. Hales, who is also a member of the Douglas County school board, has served as CCSD’s legal counsel since May of 2007.
The meeting’s time change is due to a 30-minute break at the start of the meeting when trustees will recognize Bus Scharmann’s contribution to the district as interim superintendent. Scharmann, who retired after 37 years with Western Nevada College, stepped in as interim superintendent for the 2012-13 school year. Dr. Sandra Sheldon has been appointed as the new superintendent.
Trustees will also discuss or take action on the following items:
• A renewal proposal from Nevada Public Agency Insurance Pool (POOL) and approval for payment from Fiscal Year 2013-2014 funds will be considered.
• Accept Workers Compensation Insurance Coverage from National Council on Compensation Insurance, as the lowest bidder, in the amount of $319,029 for Fiscal Year 2013-14.
• The Churchill County Community Coalition will provide a presentation on the Search Attitudes and Behaviors survey results.
• Consider renewal of telephone and internet contracts with CC Communications.
• Consider the purchase of new wooden cubby-style lockers with bond funds for the E.C. Best Elementary School round building classrooms for $21,978.37.
• Decide whether to raise the lunch price for the 2013-14 school year by 25 cents per meal and consider approval of the 2013-14 sponsor application for the National School Breakfast and Lunch Program.
• Hear a presentation from Director of Maintenance Brian Byrd on the West End floor plan for bond project remodel, which is scheduled to begin this fall.
• Consider approval of a motion to relinquish the old district offices at 545 E. Richards St. to the city of Fallon, pursuant to a clause in the original deed.
• Discussion and explanation of the board budget.
• Budgeting money for the board to send students to state and national events.
• Discuss a draft of the district’s Security Plan.
