May 17, 2021 at 4:00 PM - Board of Education Finance Workshop

1. Call Meeting to Order
2. Roll Call and Establish a Quorum
3. Agenda
3.A. Review/discuss FY 2022 Budget
3.A.1. Boardbook Enhanced Features
3.A.2. Network Hire
Description:  Here are some proposals - Josh Gibbons (360 Technologies), Crosslake Communications, and Deerwood Technologies.

Deerwood's final proposal was the $1200/month and only included services eligible for erate reimbursement (at a rate of 70-80%, depending on our NSLP numbers).

Josh's final was for $900/month, most of which would be eligible for erate. I also included a very sound proposal from Josh for restructuring our network which would make it much more secure.

Crosslake Communication's final included fiber to access points at the campground and would total $999/mo, much of which would be eligible for erate.

Erate discounts would be reimbursed the year following the purchase of the services. That is, we pay for the services first, then we're reimbursed the discount the following year.

Another option would be to pay for training for me. An upfront cost would be around $1000-4000, and then a pay increase afterward, an increase commensurate with skill increase.

At present we are paying Silent Knight to monitor our network, and we can call on them to handle certain aspects, but they are not experts and they are not maintaining things.

I can get a better handle on training for me, if Finance is interested.

Thank you,
