Receive the Monthly Head Start Supervisor’s Report, Including the Program Information Report for 2012-2013.    Superintendent D’Amico explained that Mrs. Karen Holmes-Shaw, Supervisor of the Head Start Program for the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board, was attending a conference; therefore, was not present at the meeting.  Mrs. D’Amico announced that Mrs. Shaw had e-mailed the monthly Head Start report reflective of May 31, 2013 to all School Board members and a paper copy was also printed for their folders.  Mrs. Shaw’s report reflected her gratitude to all who continue to assist her in Head Start Round-Up recruitment efforts; she provided enrollment figures for the number of children accepted or returning as of June 25, 2013, and listed the number of slots still available at each school site.  Mrs. Shaw included a copy of the 2012-2013 Head Start Program Information Report (06CH755-000 Pointe Coupee Parish School Board) in addition to the regular monthly report. 

 

Mr. Chad Aguillard made a motion to accept the monthly Head Start Supervisor’s Report, including the Program Information Report for 2012-2013.  The motion was seconded by Mr. Kevin Hotard.  The motion carried.

Discussion and/or Action Regarding Entering Into a Cooperative Endeavor/ Collaborative Agreement with the City of New Roads.  Superintendent D’Amico met Robert Meyer, Mayor of New Roads, to discuss an opportunity to participate in a cooperative endeavor/collaborative agreement with the City of New Roads with regard to applying for a Let’s Play Joint Use Grant (KaBoom).   This grant is being made available to cities in the United States with populations of less than 100,000 people. The joint effort will allow renovation (fencing, equipment upgrade, security, etc.) of the current playground located on the Rosenwald Campus providing children with an opportunity to increase their physical activity after school hours.  Mr. Warren Warr attended the School Board meeting as Mayor Meyer’s representative.  He provided handouts regarding the eligibility of the joint use agreement between the school system and the city (two separate government entities), for the proposed Kaboom Grant; he announced the city would be providing security at the site.

 

Mr. Chad Aguillard made a motion, seconded by Mr. Thomas Nelson, to enter into a Cooperative Endeavor/Collaborative Agreement with the City of New Roads to write a KaBoom Grant for the shared use of the playground at the Rosenwald Elementary School Campus. Mr. James Cline questioned the maintenance and liability of the facility after school hours. Superintendent D’Amico stated that part of the match of the city would be maintenance. Mr. Frank Aguillard stated the property owner would be liable. Following Mr. Warr’s mentioning of donation of the property that will be used to update and provide new playground equipment, Superintendent D’Amico stated that she did not remember discussing donation of property at the previous meeting with the Mayor.   Mr. Cline questioned if donation of the property was discussed at the Executive Committee meeting; he was informed that it was not discussed.   Mr. James Cline stated he is not against the Kaboom project; however, due to legal issues regarding donation of property, he would like to make a substitute motion to defer the item.  Superintendent D’Amico’s explained that a cooperative endeavor agreement is needed to apply for the grant, and if approved, the School Board would have another opportunity to address the item before an official cooperative agreement transpires between the two entities. 

 

President Bergeron announced that Mr. Chad Aguillard had made a motion, seconded by Mr. Thomas Nelson, followed by a substitute motion by Mr. Cline.  Mr. Cline announced that he will withdraw his substitute motion, since this item will come back to the Board prior to final approval.

 

The original motion made by Mr. Chad Aguillard, seconded by Mr. Thomas Nelson,  to enter into a Cooperative Endeavor/Collaborative Agreement with the City of New Roads to write a KaBoom Grant for the shared use of the playground at the Rosenwald Elementary Campus, passed by a unanimous vote of those present and voting.

Discussion/Action Regarding Monthly Financial Information.    Mr. Thomas Nelson made a motion, seconded by Mr. James Cline, to adopt the monthly financial information as prepared and presented by Mr. Stephen Langlois, Chief Financial Officer.   The motion carried.

- - - -

Consider Adoption of the 2013-2014 Salary Schedules for Employees of the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board, effective July 1, 2013.  Superintendent D’Amico explained that the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board had previously adopted the 2013-2014 teacher salary schedules at the March 27, 2013 School Board meeting.  She and Mr. Langlois presented the following schedule changes for consideration of adoption at this meeting: 

 

·         The BASE Teachers’ Salary Schedule will be used for placing teachers on the new teacher salary scale, effective July 1, 2013.

·         The base pay for bus drivers is $16,589 plus mileage, as per the state schedule, and a monthly fuel supplement from August to May, based on monthly average fuel prices.

·         Athletic Trainer fee- $1500

Asst. Principal at Valverda is trained and has been volunteering, but I would like to compensate him in the future for the services that he will render for medical purposes.

·         $23.00 per hour for certified, temporarily certified teachers (i.e., TAT, OFAT, PL) or a degreed professional with five or more years of actual teaching experience for teaching, tutoring, training, or preparing and presenting a professional development activity beyond the regular school day or year.

 

Board member Thomas Nelson requested clarification in regard to the proposed increase from the State.  Superintendent D’Amico announced that the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board was informed of a decrease in funding from the MFP due to the rise in sales taxes, thus making a difference in the budget that Mr. Langlois presented at the Executive Committee meeting last week, equating to $186,000 being removed from the MFP; however, the system will receive a 2.75% growth factor supplement.  A short discussion ensued regarding the 2.75% supplement, not being a permanent increase in the MFP, but rather given as a one-time payment paid to the district in 12 monthly payments.  It was explained that $93,479, minus retirement, is earmarked for classroom teachers only; other supplemental funding from the State this year can be used as the district sees fit.  Superintendent D’Amico stated that since other employees haven’t received any pay supplement, she would like to have it dispersed to all employees and thus will need to be decided whenever the budget is adopted by the School Board.  Mrs. D’Amico mentioned that the supplemental money being provided from the state for our parish equates to approximately $379.00 per teacher, minus retirement, based on 194 classroom teachers; therefore, a determination will need to be made by the Board if the money should be given monthly, or at mid-year, etc.    She cautioned School Board members of yearly sustainability, if it is included as part of the salary rather than a supplement. 

 

On a motion by Mr. James Cline, seconded by Mrs. Leslie Grezaffi, the Board voted to adopt the 2013-2014 salary schedules for employees of the Pointe Coupee Parish School Board, as clarified and recommended by Superintendent D’Amico and Chief Financial Officer Stephen Langlois, effective July 1, 2013. The motion carried.

 

- - - -

Discussion and/or Action Regarding Adding One Salary Step Increase.  Chief Financial Officer Stephen Langlois announced the cost of one salary step which is estimated to cost between $101,000 to $102,000; he mentioned that he had included this in the proposed budget (item #19 on the agenda) that the Board will be considering for adoption at tonight’s meeting.

 

Mr. Thomas Nelson made a motion to grant a one-step salary increase for all employees.  Mrs. Leslie Grezaffi seconded the motion.  The motion carried. 

- - - -

Discussion and/or Action Regarding the Suspension of Policy File: GBAB (Stipend Compensation Based on School Performance) with Consideration of an Additional Salary Step Increase.  Chief Financial Officer Langlois stated the Executive Committee discussed the possibility of adding an additional step increase for every employee in the school system.  He explained $100,000 is budgeted annually for certificated personnel for meeting their school’s State assigned school performance score and if the Board suspends Policy GBAB for the 2013-2014 school-year a second step could be given for all employees. 

 

President Bergeron questioned stipend distribution for the schools that just recently reached their growth target. Superintendent D’Amico stated that this would be for the following year, as schools meeting their growth target in 2012-2013 would receive the money that is set aside in the next year’s budget.  Mr. James Cline stated the Board made a promise last school year to employees, if their school meets or exceeds the criteria required for attaining their growth target they will be awarded stipends; he expressed his concern about taking the money away from teachers at schools if their growth target was reached.  A discussion ensued.  It was explained that stipends are awarded months after the scores are released and the employees that reached their growth target during the 2012-2013 school year will receive money that will be budgeted the next year.  Mr. Kevin Hotard stated that it was never his intention not to pay the teachers for meeting their growth target, but was trying to find a way to reinstate the second salary step for all employees; one of the ways discussed at the Executive Committee meeting was to suspend the policy for the next school year, then move forward.  Mr. Hotard stated that he asked Mr. Langlois to calculate how much it would cost the general fund if an additional salary step would be funded. Mrs. Leslie Grezaffi stated that the School Board has to definitely meet its obligations for this year.  Mrs. D’Amico explained that due to the new compensation schedule for teachers, this is the last year that teachers will receive step increases based on the old salary scale format.  Board member Thomas Nelson stated that he concurred with Mr. Hotard, as it was never his intention not to award teachers for reaching their growth target for working hard.  He would like to give a step increase to the full extent possible according to affordability; as he would like to look closely at the budget to try to do something for the employees.  Mr. Langlois stated that perhaps half of the 2.75% growth increase, being provided from the State, could be used to fund a step, but must make sure that compensation is budgeted for required earmarked positions for teachers.   Mr. Frank Aguillard stated it would be great to be able to give all step increases to employees for a their hard work, but the Board must watch the budget very carefully and perhaps wait until October, after the scores are received to determine if another step could be given at this time.  Mr. Thomas Nelson questioned if there is a discretion regarding the measurement that is to be used (old year/new year).  Superintendent D’Amico explained in order to compare apples to apples, the old grading scale will have to be used;  she further explained that the State would not award schools rated C in the new grading scale and a D in the old grading scale.  Mr. Frank asked what the average step increase would be for teachers from the school system.  Mr. Langlois stated that the average step increase would be approximately $350.00. 

 

Mr. Bergeron questioned Mr. Langlois about the year the salaries were frozen.  Mr. Langlois stated every employee in the system’s salary has been frozen since the 2010-2011 school year.  Mr. Bergeron stated the last three years our teachers have not had a step increase.  He further questioned how it would work if the Board adopts the step increases now then they will be based upon performance, and what would happen if we don’t implement the second step now.  Mrs. D’Amico stated that you couldn’t come back and give a step, otherwise you would have to bump the whole salary schedule up; therefore, this is the time to lock in the salary steps and suspend the school performance score.  Mr. Bergeron stated he is of the opinion three years of frozen salaries is long enough; all teachers at schools throughout the district work hard and he would like the Board members to implement the second step now with suspension of Policy GBAB using the $100,000 School Performance Stipend to fund the second step.  Mr. Bergeron expressed concern regarding surrounding parishes paying teachers more money than Pointe Coupee and for recruitment purposes would like to reward the teachers by restoring the step to compete with other parishes.  Mr. Cline expressed that the school system made a promise to the teachers and the school system needs to honor that promise.  Mr. Chad Aguillard posed a question to the Superintendent regarding the sentiment of employees in the system.  Superintendent D’Amico stated that teachers would like to receive their steps and some Principals would not like to do away with the School Performance Stipend, but perhaps consider a reduced amount in an effort to restore the steps.  A discussion ensued regarding ways to implement a second step as well as continuing policy GBAB for school performance.  Board member Frank Aguillard stated that he is willing to give both steps as well as keep the $100,000 for school performance in the budget.  Board Member Leslie Grezaffi suggested once the Board finds out what school(s) made growth, perhaps the $100,000 could be used as a one-time supplement for employees.  Board member Hotard started a discussion about possibly using the $93,000 that is mandated by the state for classroom teachers as a possible option to fund the second step.  Superintendent D’Amico and Chief Financial Officer Langlois stated that the second step will be for all employees, but you will have to make sure that the teachers receive the proper amount of money allocated for teachers from the State.  Superintendent D’Amico advised the Board that using this one time money for a step increase meant that they would have to sustain the step.

 

Mr. Thomas Nelson made a motion to implement a two salary step increase for all employees using the $93,000 allocation for teachers and using part of the other $93,000 for the rest of the employees, without the suspension of policy GBAB (Stipend Compensation Based on School Performance) this school year.  The motion was seconded by Mr. James Cline.  The vote was unanimous.

Adoption of the 2013-2014 General Fund Budget.    A public hearing regarding the proposed 2013-2014 general fund budget was held at 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, June 20, 2013, as advertised by Chief Financial Officer Stephen Langlois. Mr. Langlois presented the proposed 2013-2014 general fund budget with a $286,000 spending deficit; this budget includes one step increase for employees, $100,000 for school performance and the $93,000 payout for classroom teachers that was mandated by the 2013 legislature.  Mr. Brandon Bergeron questioned the CFO and the Superintendent regarding any cost saving measures they may be able to be implemented to deter deficit spending in the future.  Superintendent D’Amico stated that the SRCL grant will hopefully offer relief with regard to personnel costs and is looking at rerouting First Student bus routes to save money.

 

Mr. Bergeron stated that he has not voted for a deficit budget in the past and would like to table the adoption of the 2013-2014 general fund budget until the Finance Committee is able to meet and make a recommendation to the Board.  Mr. Bergeron stated that they tried to have a Finance Committee meeting this week, but due to scheduling, the full Committee was unable to meet.  Mr. Nelson expressed his concern about waiting another month to adopt the budget.  Mr. Bergeron stated that he has been begging the Superintendent to present a budget in May so that one would be adopted by July 1st.  Many financial factors are uncertain until the legislature completes its session in mid-June.  Discussion ensued regarding whether or not to postpone the adoption of the budget.

Board Member Kevin Hotard left the meeting at 7:13 p.m.

Mr. Chad Aguillard made a motion to adopt the 2013-2014 general fund budget, seconded by Mr. Thomas Nelson.  The motion carried.

Lease Purchase of Four Double Classroom Modular Buildings’ Project Tabled.   

Previous administration entered into a lease agreement with a company for four double classroom modular buildings for more than six years.  In an effort to own the buildings, rather than paying a monthly lease, Superintendent D’Amico thought that it would be more feasible to request bids for lease purchase.  Architect David Mougeot, of Mougeot Architecture, assisted Mr. Donald Fuselier, Director of Maintenance and Support Services, and Stephen Langlois, Chief Financial Officer, with the development of bid specifications and the advertisement for bids for four double classroom buildings.  After review of the bids, it was the recommendation of the bid opening committee (David Mougeot, Yvonne David, Stephen Langlois and Donald Fuselier) to reject all bids with the intent to rebid early next year.  This delay will allow adequate time to bid, award the project, and replace modular buildings during the summer of 2014, prior to schools reopening.  The current leases on these four buildings have expired and M Space, the lessor, has agreed to extend the leases on a month to month basis. 

 

On a motion by Mr. Thomas Nelson, seconded by Mr. Chad Aguillard, the Board voted unanimously to table the agenda item regarding the lowest submitted bid for lease purchase of four double classroom modular buildings.

Consider Request to Move a Building from Rosenwald Elementary to Valverda Elementary or Rougon Elementary, if needed due to Enrollment.  Mr. Frank Aguillard made a motion, seconded by Mr. James Cline, to move a building from Rosenwald Elementary to Rougon Elementary or Valverda Elementary, if needed, due to increased enrollment.  The motion carried.

Discussion and/or Action Regarding Contracting with International Center for Leadership in Education for Professional Development Relative to Common Core State Standards.  Mrs. Karla Jack, Supervisor of Federal Programs and Secondary Education, stated that since the state did not spend all of the Teacher Incentive Funds (TIF) school districts were re-issued money for instructional training; Pointe Coupee was allocated $90,000.  Mrs. Jack requested permission to engage the consulting services of the International Center for Leadership in Education (ICLE) to conduct professional development training for district leaders (Principals, Assistant Principals, Supervisors and Master Teachers) and again for teachers and paraprofessionals on the first 3 days of school.  All professional development provided by ICLES will lead the district to be prepared for Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
