February Superintendent Report Litchfield Public Schools February 18, 2019 2019-2020 Calendar Attached is the 2019-2020 calendar proposal that Mr. Finley, Mr. Drew and the Ansley administration have put together. Motion: I recommend approval of the 2019-2020 calendar as presented. ESU 10 Contract Review and Approval Attached are contracts from ESU 10. All of these contracts are part-time individuals who come to the school when we have special education needs. These contracts save the district from hiring half-time or full time in- dividuals to serve our students special education population. The board needs to approve these annual con- tracts so the ESU may plan to hire appropriate personnel to serve the various school districts in the area. Motion: I recommend approval of the ESU 10 contracts for 2019-2020 as presented. COOP Agreement Update: We have to add the coaches evaluation and then we should be ready to have to board approve the final edition hopefully at the March board meeting. Road Bids If the board agrees to this we would need to make a motion for Improvements to the current road to be taken out of the Special Building Fund or Replacement of the road surface out of the Depreciation Fund.
