4.  Allow for the superintendent to have the same bereavement language as Classified Union with regard to using one sick day per year to attend the funeral of a close relative or friend.

10.c. Approve - Purchase of Two School Buses, North Central Equipment, Inc.
Presenter:  Dr. Parks
Description:  The bus procurement process has the potential to be lengthy due to supply chain issues.  It is the recommendation of the transportation team the District starts the process now to ensure buses are available when needed next year.  Seven of the fourteen buses are greater than 15 years of age.  The cost of maintaining old buses and the continuous maintenance issues are indicators it is time to replace.  My recommendation is for two buses.  1-route bus to replace a 2006 bus with over 200,000 miles and 1 transit style bus to use as an activity bus. Attached are the specifications and the state bid pricing for the two buses.  The District would purchase both buses using a lease-purchase option (timeline TBD) for $249,389.
