The agenda also mentions, under "Communications," emails the Board of Education received regarding their decision last month to administrators and central office staff. (As of press time, 177 people had requesting the board to rescind these raises, as well as the two-year contract extension granted to Dr. Hunderfund.)
The terminations of three personnel -- two teaching assistants and one civil service position -- will be voted on tonight, along with two resignations, a leave of absence and 74 appointments, including 23 teachers/teaching assistants.
The school board will be also voting to adopt the minutes from last month's board meeting, as well as the June 2012 Treasurer's report, and more than a dozen contracts for various services for the upcoming school year, which are outline in the attached draft agenda.
