The USD No. 480 board of education will be conducting business as usual during its last meeting before the school year starts.

The first item on the agenda is setting a public meeting to discuss the 2014-2015 budget. Citizens will be able to express their views on the budget.

Soon after the reports from the superintendent, deputy superintendent and directors of business, human resources, curriculum and staff development, special education and data and development, the board, the board will move on to new business.

One of the first items in the new business is the awarding of three grants from the 21st Century Community Learning Center for the 2014-2015 year.  There will also be a couple of contracts discussed betwee the district and High Plains Educational Cooperative in Ulysses for sign language interpretation and occupational therapy services.

An agreement between Kansas Children’s Service League Head Start and the district’s Special Education Services will also be discussed. The purpose will be to establish a framework for special education and related services to be provided for eligible children from ages 3 to 5.

The district will also be taking another step in its eminent domain process with Resolution 8-4-14, which would continue the acquiring of Pine Street property behind Hampton Inn, where the district plans to build new elementary and middle schools with the bond passed in April.

After board comments, the board will then go into an executive session. After the executive session, the meeting will then be adjourned.
