Grant application on board agenda

Kelly Silva

— Steamboat Springs School Board members and guests will meet today for a study session to have a roundtable discussion on a variety of subjects.

Mary Bramer, director of the North Routt Charter School, will update and inform board members of the Title X application for grant money.

Next on the agenda is an update from Content Standards Director Kelly Stanford on the revision of the assessment matrix. As the state continues to develop Colorado Student Assessment Program tests and expands its repertoire, matrix assessments need to be revised constantly.

Rick Denney, district facilities director, will present information about a five-year plan of capital needs such as future building renovations or land acquisitions. About two months ago, the board asked Denney to come up with a five-year plan for the capital commission under the Education Fund Board to look over further.

Dale Mellor, district finance director, will present information on the 2000-2001 audit report and update the board members of the auditor’s recommendations.

School Board Director Paula Stephenson and Superintendent Cyndy Simms have been developing a possible amendment to the board’s policies on public comments. Because of a matter during the 2000-2001 school year regarding personnel, Stephenson and Simms have written a rough draft of a policy to curb the humiliation and ridicule of anyone during school board public comments time for the safety of personnel.

The study session will conclude with Simms giving board members a school finance lesson. The meeting should be adjourned at 9 p.m.

The next school board meeting is Nov. 12.

The school board usually meets for study sessions the first Monday of every month. Board meetings occur the Monday before the 17th of the month.
