Wednesday night at 6 p.m. the MUSD governing board will hold its regularly scheduled meeting at the district office.
Superintendent Jeff Kleck will review the history and purpose of the Ak-Chin Grant, and Suzette Moe will discuss the federal mandate to raise school lunch prices.
The board will be asked to approve donations that range from athletic t-shirts for the softball team to computers for Maricopa Wells Elementary, a donation valued at $3,000. They will also vote on travel for both students and administrators. Five students from Maricopa High School were selected to attend the HOSA (Health Occupations Students of America) National Competition in Anaheim, Calif., with expenses paid for by the Central Arizona Valley Institute of Technology.
For administrators, two separate trips, one to Anaheim, another to Las Vegas, are both part of Grant Writing USA grant management classes and will be paid for by the Perkin’s Basic Grant with a combined estimated expense of $15,000.
The 2011-2012 salary schedules will be up for approval, as will personnel schedules which include resignations, terminations and new position requests along with any employment ratifications.
Discussion topics will include possible dating abuse policies within the health curriculum. A public meeting is required by law to define dating abuse and its warning signs while describing the characteristics of healthy relationships.
Board members will look at possible budget reductions. They will also discuss and vote on the services of a marketing and public relations firm. The services will be intended to prevent a loss in student population, to fight negative public perceptions of the district and to improve its messaging about goals and achievements.
