Board approves interlocal agreement
Tonganoxie School Board members met in executive session for a total of 2 1/2 hours Thursday during a special meeting at Tonganoxie Middle School.
The board met for an hour before returning to regular session.
After the first closed-door session, the board moved to enter into an interlocal agreement with the City of Tonganoxie and Tonganoxie Recreation Commission, with the stipulation that the school board not be responsible for any attorney fees.
The board went back into executive session to discuss personnel for what would be another 1 1/2 hours.
When members returned from executive session, they moved to approve a contract extension for Tonganoxie High School instructor Ken Lott for the 2008-09 school year.
For much of the executive session, Kansas Association of School Board officials Bill Majors and Max Heim met with the school board. Superintendent Richard Erickson met with the board for the entire 2 1/2 hours.
Thursday's regular meeting agenda also included discussion and action on board policy, as well as classified employee work agreements for 2008-09.
However, the board moved to table those items until the next board meeting, which will be another special meeting. It is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. Monday.
According to an executive session agenda, the board discussed a central office employee audit and work agreements for classified employees.
The audit, which Majors and Heim presented to the board, was approved at a special meeting in February. At that meeting, the board moved to hire an auditor to evaluate job descriptions of secretaries and clerks at the board office for no more than $3,000.
