The Policy committee has reviewed the 600 series and with no further issues from the Board will recommend that they be adopted as presented.

V.A. Food Service Contract Action

VI.C. KW Education Foundation Annual Report 2008-2009 Action
Description:  As in years past the Education Foundation presents their annual report for the school board to review and accept. The Education Foundation provides a tremendous service to Kenyon-Wanamingo Schools in their efforts to support the funding of projects that are not provided by the school. The people and community businesses that support the Education Foundation are invaluable to the district. As Superintendent I very grateful for their generosity to the students of Kenyon-Wanamingo.
VI.D. Truth-in-Taxation Public Hearing Action
Description:  This year the school district does not have to have a separate Truth in Taxation public hearing as in past years. The Board does need to designate a regular board meeting at which it will hold a "hearing" to discuss budgets. This is the date that will be shown on tax statements mailed to the public. I recommend to do this at the November 23rd board meeting at 7:00 p.m.
VI.E. Superintendent Contract Proposal Action
Description:  A different option for my contract has been explored with the Administrative Committee. I appreciate the Board considering the proposal that is coming. This proposal will give me the opportunity to collect my retirement and will give the Board an opportunity to save on my salary. Hopefully this will be a win win situation for both of us. The enclosures will explain the procedures for this to take place. The Board would need to accept a resignation from me and then enter an agreement with School Administrative Specialty Services for Superintendent services. The spreadsheet will show the outline of Superintendent pay savings to the district and duty days. I thank the committee for their patience.
VI.F. School Board Retreat Discussion
Description:  As discussed last month the Board has a desire to have a retreat to examine the goals of the district, organization of the district and other topics the board wishes to have on the agenda.
VI.G. WETC Joint Powers Agreement
Description:  The WETC Board is reviewing the Joint Powers agreement that exists with member districts. This has not been reviewed for many years and some areas of concern have been addressed with proposals. A Zumbrota-Mazeppa board member did some revisions and presented them to the WETC Board. The WETC Board members were to take the recommendations back to each of their districts for full school board review.
