Monroe’s first Board President, Jamie Pierce, will speak at the event.
Discussion and Comments from the Board
Legislative – Mr. MacDonald shared information regarding HB260/SB8 which will require districts to pay more for special elections. OSBA opposes this bill. OSBA also opposes the alternative energy bills before the legislature currently. While the bills would save energy costs for districts, the associated tax breaks would cost districts more money than they would save.
Student Achievement – Mrs. Mueller, Monroe High School Art Teacher, has been invited by OSBA to attend the OSBA Capital Conference in November for her outstanding art program.
Butler Tech – Graduation ceremonies for the various Butler Tech programs will be held in the upcoming weeks. Mr. Guido plans to attend the graduations to support Monroe’s students who participate. Butler Tech will be conducting final interviews for the position of Superintendent on May 20, 2010.
Finance – None
Facilities – Petermann Transportation will be able to begin moving the bus garage from the rented facility on Breaden Drive to the new Monroe Administrative offices on Yankee Road.
