Report Card Update

 

Dr. Gail Paludi shared with the Hollis School Board the latest draft of the new primary school report card.  The performance descriptors have been changed, both definitions and initials.  The rubrics will be tweaked so that the levels will be linked to the new performance descriptors.  This work will be done by each grade level at their individual staff meetings.

 

Anita Moynihan made a motion to approve this draft of the report card as final.  Kathy de Lacy seconded the motion.  The motion carried by a vote of 5 yes, 0 no.

 

Harry Haytayan requested Richard Pike check on the status of the performance descriptors for the HUES report cards.

 

Paving Update

 

Doug Cleveland reported to the Board on the paving update.  ACE paving has been solicited for a quote to pave additional spaces at HPS and at the SAU office.

 

The HPS quote was for $3,000.  The work can be done on a Saturday.  It will include a 2” binder and a 1” top coat over a gravel base.  Lee Ann asked if it came with a guarantee.  Doug Cleveland responded that it wasn’t mentioned, but that he would check on it.

 

SAU Parking quote was for $6,000 for 6 spaces (9’ x 18’) plus driveway.

 

Doug feels that both of these prices are very reasonable.

 

Harry Haytayan requested that Doug check references and reputation of ACE Paving.

 

 

 

Kathy de Lacy made a motion to appropriate up to $3,000 to pave additional spaces at HPS, subject to the presentation of a proper contract and appropriate references.  Anita Moynihan seconded the motion.  The motion carried by unanimous vote 5 yes, 0 no.

 

Other Business

 

Harry Haytayan wanted to reiterate that any request for Board action must be in writing. Also, any request for information from any other town committee needs to follow the proper channels. (i.e. through the other Board’s Chair to the HSB Chair, Superintendent or Business Administrator, as appropriate).

 

Farley Building

 

Even without a vote by the H/B Coop Board, the Farley Building will automatically revert to the Town of Hollis, once the conditions of the Quitclaim Deed are met.  Specifically, once the Farley Building stops being used by the Coop, ownership automatically reverts to Hollis two years from the date usage ceases.

 

At any point in time, however, the H/B Coop School Board can vote to return ownership of the Farley Building to Hollis.  We don’t own Farley yet; therefore, no Board action is necessary or appropriate.  The Hollis School Board has not decided what, if anything, we would eventually do with the property.  We will have that discussion when the appropriate time arises.

 

At 10:15 Kathy de Lacy made a motion to go into non-public under RSA 91A:2c for negotiations.  Anita Moynihan seconded the motion.  The motion carried by roll call vote 5 yes, 0 no. 

 

At 11:35 the Hollis School Board came out of non-public session.

 

Doug Cleveland made a motion to seal the minutes from non-public session.  Anita Moynihan seconded the motion.  The motion carried by unanimous vote 5 yes, 0 no. 

 

Doug Cleveland made a motion to hire Tom Flygare to be the negotiator for the Hollis School Board, subject to the receipt of a written proposal detailing a contractual arrangement not to exceed $12,000 for negotiation of HSD professional and support staff contacts and to authorize the Board Chair to negotiate the terms and conditions.  Kathy de Lacy seconded the motion.  The motion carried by unanimous vote 5 yes, 0 no. 

 

Doug Cleveland made a motion to have Harry Haytayan notify the union representatives that Tom Flygare will be negotiating for the Hollis School District and will be the point of contact for negotiations.  Jennifer MacLeod seconded the motion.  The motion carried by unanimous vote 5 yes, 0 no.

 

Anita Moynihan made a motion to adjourn.  Kathy de Lacy seconded the motion.  The motion carried by unanimous vote 5 yes, 0 no.

 

At 11:50 the meeting was adjourned.
