Description: 

1.  The 2022 MSBA Delegate Assembly meeting is scheduled for December 2-3, 2022, at the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Minneapolis - Park Place.

MSBA’s Legislative Policies are adopted through the Delegate Assembly — which is recognized as one of the most effective grassroots approaches of any of the interests represented at the state Capitol. School board members from throughout the state are elected for a two-year term by their peers to serve as Delegates.

Resolutions that will be considered, must be submitted by School Districts by September.  Please let me know if there are any resolutions you are interested in being presented.

Each December, Delegates discuss and vote on various legislative resolutions submitted by school boards and individual school board members. Those resolutions that receive a majority vote, as well as positions adopted during previous years, become the basis for MSBA staff lobbying efforts on behalf of all public school board members in the state. More information should be coming from MSBA.  


2.  Fall Staff Development-Our back to school staff development is finalized.  It includes New Staff, ALiCE Training, MTSS, PLC, Student Motivation, Special Education, and more.  

3.  MCA Results are currently being delayed.  Once the results are released, we will analyze the data and share the results with the board.

4.  The September School Board Meeting is set for September 12th.

5. DESIGNATION OF IDENTIFIED OFFICIAL WITH AUTHORITY (IOwA)
Description:  MDE requires annual school board action designating a district official to authorize user access to secure MDE websites.  These websites are routinely used by school staff to submit and access information.  Examples include:  Accountability Reports, Assessment Reports, Early Education Reports, and Finance Reports.  I recommend designating the superintendent as the Identified Official with Authority (IOwA) to authorize user access to MDE secure websites.

10. SECOND READINGS
Description:  The policy committee has drafted policy 471.  MSBA does not have a related policy.  I do not recommend approval of policy 471.   I recommend immediately rescinding current policy 722 and replacing it with MSBA recommended policy 722. The current policy creates a number of legal, security and financial liabilities for the District.
10.B. 722

11. STRATEGIC PLAN
Description:  Per Minnesota Statute 120B.11, Subd. 2, which states, " A school board, at a public meeting, shall adopt a comprehensive, long-term strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning that is aligned with creating the world's best workforce". In addition, Policy 223, Strategic Goals states its purpose to establish the school district vision, student exit outcomes, school district exit outcomes, and school board annual strategic goals.

I recommend approval of the updated Strategic Plan.  This plan is based on multiple community committee meetings, input from cabinet, building, and district leadership, feedback from internal and external surveys, and the most recent special session board meeting on July 14th.
