November Superintendent Report
Litchfield Public Schools
State Education Conference
State Education Conference in Omaha is on November 20 th to 22 nd . I have registered April, Bill and myself to
attend. Plan on leaving around 1:30 – 2:00 on Wednesday.
The district audit was conducted on October 7 th . I have added to your board packets the copy of our 2018-19 An-
nual Financial Report. This report has been submitted to NDE and the State Auditors.
Classified Employee Grievance
I have enclosed a copy of the NASB Grievance Policy 402.05R2 for Classified Staff. This would actually give us
a policy to follow if we have to deal with a grievance from a classified employee. The Certified Staff Grievance
is part of the negotiation that is currently taking place.
Building and Grounds
-Nothing new on the finishing up the landscaping around the new road with Johnson Landscaping. As men-
tions before, they will need to move some sprinklers first.
-Did not get anything from Trane on the possible Air Conditioning in Spartan and Trojan Gyms. Another
engineer will be here on Tuesday, November 19 th . We will talk with them at the Conference in Omaha this week.
-Jim Goodner said he will contact us when they get a price set for the land and house down by the football
field. He will discuss it with his people.
-Cole Electric replaced all lights in the Spartan Gym. Said that we may want to look into replacing current
lights with LED lighting. They will also be putting in some outlets on the outside in back of the blue building for
plugging busses in during the winter.
Board and Superintendent Evaluations
I have enclosed evaluation forms the self-evaluation of the board and the superintendent evaluation on me. Mitch
has asked me to ask that each board member complete each evaluation and return to him by the December meet-
The LEA has a meeting on Friday, (November 15 th ), and should have an updated response from the first meeting
with Mitch and Marie. Mitch will not be here but we could go into executive session and discuss what has been
discussed thus far and further discuss their counter offer of response.
