Minutes of November 17, 2010 Board Retreat

The Board of Education of the Monroe Local School District in the County of Butler, State of Ohio, held its board retreat on the 17th day of November 2010 in the Monroe Board of Education Office, located in Monroe, Ohio.

The Treasurer, Mrs. Kelley Thorpe, recorded the minutes.

Roll Call — showed the following members present: Mr. Brett Guido, Mr. Mike Lane, Mr. John MacDonald, Mr. Chris Snyder, and Mrs. Leslie Stone. Also present were Superintendent, Dr. Elizabeth Lolli and Treasurer, Mrs. Kelley Thorpe, and guests as listed in Appendix “A”, which is attached and becomes an official part of these minutes.

All presentations/documents presented to the Board are available in the Treasurer’s Office, as referenced in the body of these minutes.

Dr. Lolli explained the pilot program for the Superintendent’s evaluation system. If Monroe wants to continue to be a part of the pilot, the Superintendent’s job description will need to be reviewed and modified for agreement with the new system and a formative evaluation will need to be completed in December. The board will compare the existing job description to the new standards as a starting point for the process.

Mrs. Thorpe presented an overview the BoardDocs program. The BoardDocs program is an online program to manage board meetings paperless. Butler Tech currently uses this program for its board meetings and Mr. Guido extolled the program’s benefits. However, the board feels that the cost of the program is prohibitive at this time and asked Mrs. Thorpe and Dr. Lolli to explore other, less expensive options.

Mrs. Thorpe advised the board regarding new information from OSBA this week stating that districts may want to plan for a potential 15-20% cut in education funding rather than the original recommended 10% cut. Mrs. Thorpe further explained that she and Dr. Lolli have begun working on budgets for next year should this major reduction actually occur. Governor-elect Kasich has promised to completely redo the existing OEBM of funding once he takes office. Given the uncertainty of what this funding model will look like, Mrs. Thorpe explained that she and Dr. Lolli are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst.
