Mueller recommended that election of board officers to the beginning of the agenda.
4.1 No public comments on the election of officers. Youngblood nominated Cavanaugh as Board President. Cavanaugh accepted. Youngblood motioned Cavanaugh nominated as President, with Peters seconding. Peters nominated Scott Youngblood to be Vice President, seconded by Sandie, and Youngblood accepted. Sandie nominated Peters for Clerk and Youngblood seconded. Peters accepted.

8.1. NEA Union Lead, ACT President. Landry. Shared contacts of all the union reps that may be contacted if parents have problems with curriculum, etc.
8.3 DOD Education. Dr. Megan Battle and Dr. Shannon Colter, SD COE Grant Evaluator. Colter reviewed grant process for benefit of new board members? Talked about three grants: E^3 (engage, explore, and excel in Math), World Language Plus (military grant), STEM Read-1 (Robotics Program) grant. Youngblood, asked if the reading issues in 3, 4, and 5th grade could be addressed with Grant, to which Dr. Colter said the grant is sunsetting, no.
8.4 Department Updates. 12 days of Gratitude, nice shout-out to local businesses and expression of gratitude by CUSD. Youngblood brought up $500,000 a year bus service…any other options? Antrim advocated for bus service. No one looking to cut it, just to consider options.
BBMAC operation cost was average based on 2018 market study. Currently, pool cost $180,000 and CUSD is considering getting rid of costs for CUSD teams and groups. Local groups or clubs will pay more. Tier 1 group cost rates would favor Coronado residents.
8.5 Superintendent’s Long Range Plan. Last time we paid for a independent safety assessment was 2012-13 (Stratagos, $20,000). Recommended consultant, SSO, was selected for work that needs voted on. (Editor’s note: not sure if they are getting 3 bids?) CUSD and City 2×2 Restoration recommended by Mueller. Results by June or Fall 23. Antrim asked Mueller, “What about a discussion or a study session sooner vice later, because A/C at village, etc. Peters asked a fair question what does a study session mean?, to wit, Antrim said “you go to your Governance Handbook”. Antrim mentioned someone from Emerald Keepers could come when referencing experts, etc. She mentioned Uvalde. Peters supported Antrim’s proposal citing a study session could support approval / review of a report. Mueller supported as well, “Form a study session that connects the dots on how one impacts the other.” Peters asked where doe $20,000 come from? Answer: the General Fund. Cavanaugh, good question, How were 3 safety consultants winnowed down? One backlogged, one out of state, to cost-prohibitive.
9.1 Public comment. Request that if the public brings something up that it gets agendized within a 60-day window. Mueller, “oftentimes Revisions to Board Policies are recommended by CSBA and some are mandates.” Youngblood, two revisions based on law, one on CTE.
11.1 Youngblood moved to put on agenda in January. Creating a temporary committee for a 360 degree evaluation of 4×4 program, changes, improvements for January. Subject matter experts, parents, stakeholders, early than later in order to adopt any changes necessary. Antrim agreed and supports for discussion. Will see if it makes agenda! Superintendent wanted to know what to do to support / facilitate January review. Two staff to support Staff. establish a board committee to discuss 4×4. Antrim recommended: Intersection of safety / AC/Solar/electric issues. Cavanaugh look at format of Agenda to support meaningful two-way discussion, rather than one-way. Public can attend protocol meeting for handbook governance.
