It is recommended the Board approve deleting Charlotte Williams and adding Darrian Dover as a signer on the following accounts:

Lone Star Investment Pool

MCNB (soon to be City National Bank):

Money Market account-0699

***Denotes accounts which did not have Mrs. Williams as a signer.  I verified there was nothing prohibiting this in our policy and also confirmed the practice of the Superintendent being a signer on all accounts with other local schools.  This would keep the Board members from needed to go to the bank for wires or transfers.

Description: 

Leave benefits that employers were required to provide through the Families First Coronavirus Relief Act (FFCRA) expired December 31, 2020.  In order to protect students and staff, the board should consider providing additional paid leave (not to exceed 10 days) for employees with COVID or in quarantine.
