Public Workshop of HB Co-op Board Meeting held                        

Thursday, November 3, 2005 in the HBHS Music Room


In attendance,  chair Pam Kirby, Anne Dumas, Jim Murphy, Tom Enright, Steve Simons, HBHS Principal Tim Kelly, SAU 41 Superintendent Rich Pike.


The board reviewed the proposed new cafeteria location, and walked the site outdoors, discussing several options that might be feasible, to include a second-floor above the addition to house two additional classrooms.


Tom Enright moved that we ask Barbara Chalmers to provide another back-of-the-envelope estimate that extends the cafeteria to include a second floor for the purpose of adding team rooms, and 2 additional classrooms.  Steve Simons seconded the motion.  The motion passed 5-0.


Betty Hall arrived at 6:20.


Steve Simons reported that the portable were no longer required on the Middle School site.  Removing them early would require a payment of $23,760 to break the lease, but would be less than the $35,000 in rent if we retained them on site.


Steve Simons moved that the board approve the expenditure of $23,760 to break the lease on the portables 7 months early.  Anne Dumas second the motion.  The motion passed 6-0.


The board reviewed policies from Section J for first reading.


Dan Peterson arrived at 6:30.


Policy review and discussion continued for nearly 2 hours.


Steve Simons moved that the board accept for first reading policies as amended JCA – JICDD.  Anne Dumas seconded the motion.  The motion passed 7-0.


The board discussed the upcoming public information session about the proposed schedule changes, and agreed that we would conduct a workshop meeting following Tim Kelly’s presentation on Nov 8th.


Dan Peterson moved adjournment at 8:55 p.m.  Anne Dumas seconded the motion.  The motion passed 7-0.



Respectfully Submitted,


Jim Murphy
