Board to discuss redistricting

— Before the South Routt School Board begins discussing extended service award proposals and director redistricting, its members will take a tour.

Last year, a main waterline broke in the town of Oak Creek. The break caused damage to the district’s secondary campus. Today, board members will inspect the repaired areas on campus.

“It’s taken us this long to get all the different things repaired,” Superintendent Kelly Reed said. “Most of these things have been cosmetic fixes.”

The board also will review Colorado Student Assessment Program, or CSAP, test results with Soroco High School and Middle School Principal James Chamberlin.

Nine items are on the agenda for discussion, including extended service award proposals, which are post-retirement benefits, Reed said. The board also will continue to discuss its code of ethics and the possibility of redistricting to create an at-large School Board member position.

The board is scheduled to take action on the resignation of Walt Trout, a district maintenance worker and custodian, and approve the new contract for Nick Marzano, a middle school English teacher.

The board will hear first readings of its facility use contract, its amended code of ethics, its nepotism policy and a policy approval and procedure policy. Board members then will head into executive session.

The School Board meets at 7 p.m. today at the district’s administrative offices at 305 S. Grant Avenue in Oak Creek.
