Monroe School Board Meeting
Monday, August 28, 2000 12:00:00 AM - Monroe Ohio
A special meeting of the Monroe Local Board of Education was held Monday, August 28, 2000 at 7 p.m. in the Monroe Community Building. A presentation was given by Bill Hyatt, faculty member at the high school on wireless computers for the elementary school modules. The board will consider a proposal to buy 30 portable student computers at a cost of between $64,000 and $76,000. The board then adjourned to executive session to discuss personnel and negotiations. When the board returned Arnol Elam, district superintendent brought up three items for approval. The first was to accept the Monroe Education Association as a bargaining unit for the Monroe Local Schools. Donna Petrocy, president of the MEA made a short speech declaring the association’s excitement and enthusiasm for working in the new school system. The second was to accept a collective bargaining agreement between the Monroe Local Schools and the Monroe Education Association and the third was to approve the policies in Appendix A. The board approved all three of these items. Mr. Elam then brought up enrollment policy in the new district. He stated that it had been brought to his attention that some students enrolled in the Monroe district do not actually live within the district. He discussed a five-point practice used in the Mason school district to use as a guideline to enforce proper enrollment procedure. Needed to enroll a student are the following: 1) Proof of residency (rent/lease agreement, purchase contract, copy of deed) 2) Proof of date of birth (birth certificate or passport) 3) Proof of custody (copy of court order granting custody) 4) Social Security Number 5) Most current grade card and name and address of previous school. The board members supported his use of these guidelines as a means to insuring that Monroe’s students all live within the boundaries of the school district. During the public participation portion of the meeting Lynette Leigh expressed her unhappiness with the district’s plan to transport non-public school students (John XXIII, Fenwick and Middletown Christian) to their schools in Middletown. Mr. Elam and Mr. Pierce stated that they would look into the situation and contact her with their decision. Next meeting of the school board will be TUESDAY, September 5 at 7 p.m. in the high school media center.
