Election of governing board president, vice president Wednesday


Newly elected board members Scott Bartle and Patti Coutre, as well as newly appointed member Torri Anderson, will participate in their first board meeting Wednesday evening. They will join Geoff Goddard and Carrie Vargas as MUSD governing board members.

On Jan. 5 members participated in a board retreat to review roles and responsibilities, ethics and their relationship with the superintendent. With that knowledge in mind, one of the five will be elected president of the board at Wednesday’s meeting. A vice president will also be elected.

In addition to the election of officers, the board will hear Dr. Ember Conley’s overview of Butterfield Elementary School’s demographics, data and goals.

Superintendent Jeff Kleck will provide information on the district’s five-year plan, as well as a report on the acceptance of vendor gifts by district personnel.

Galileo testing benchmark data for grades 1-5 for both fall and winter will be offered as information to the board by Lynnette Michalski, Director of Assessment and Accountability.

The newly formed governing board will discuss and possibly approve the use of a hearing officer for teacher termination and student expulsion hearings, and approve insurance broker services for the district.

In addition, the open enrollment capacity for all schools in the district will be presented for board approval.
