Website Design Class Several of our students have enrolled in a new class this year that is being taught by our new business teacher, Nikia Hunt. They will be at the meeting to show the board our school district website and all of the information that has been added and updated to our school district website located at “www.litchfieldpublicschools.org.” Continued on page 14… Page School Board Workshops On Thursday, August 24, Wednesday August 2, and Thursday August 3rd Bill Howard and I attended the Area School Board Workshop, and the Labor Relations Workshop. Both workshops presented valuable information in regard to school board governance and school board negotiations. Appreciation is extended to Bill for taking the time from his busy schedule to attend these important school board events. He will share information with the board in regard to teacher negotiations about new software that has been developed by the NASB to assist Nebraska School Boards in the negotiation process. Information about the software is located at the NASB website at www.nebraska.bargaining.com. Users who want to see all of the negotiation functions are asked to highlight the “user manual” at the bottom of the page and work through all of the functions available to school districts. 13 Assignment of New Board Member Included in the packet are two letters, one from Mitch Feldman, and one from Will Johnson. Both are excellent candidates to fill the board vacancy. The board will need to make a motion to ask and assign one of these gentlemen to the board of education to fill the board vacancy, effective immediately. Motion: I recommend that Mitch Feldman be asked and assigned to fill the board of education vacancy that will run until January 2017.
