Attachment: First Amendment.pdf
Attachment: Bd Attorney Employment Agreement.pdf

Motions:

Chairman Reads:

Negotiations were concluded last Wednesday afternoon, March 16, 2011, on the First Amendment to the Chief Counsel's Employment Agreement.  Due to the time-sensitive nature of this matter, this item was added to the agenda after the first publication.

This item was added to the online agenda Wednesday afternoon March 16, 2011, which is sufficient notice under these circumstances.  I believe good cause exists for adding this item to the agenda.

Motion to approve LR2 as presented by staff and authorize the Chairman to sign any realted documents related to this item.

50. LR4 - Amended Contract between A. Denise Sagerholm and the School Board
Attachment: AmendedContract031711.pdf
Attachment: OriginalContract121510.pdf
Attachment: QuesLR4.pdf (Confidential Item)

Motions:

Chairman Reads: 

 

Good cause exists to add this item to the agenda, so that the Attorney can continue to perform the necessary legal functions in Employee Relations and the Office of Chief Counsel.  Her current contract expires on March 31, 2011.

 

As stated in the attached amended contract, the purpose of amending the contract between the School Board and A. Denise Sagerholm as an Attorney is to continue filling a void in the Office of Chief Counsel due to an employee being on a temporary leave of absence.  The possibility exist of the employee on leave may request additional leave beyond April 1 and there will be a need to continue our relationship with the Attorney, A. Denise Sagerholm.  She will pprovide legal advice and represent the School Board in the areas of personnel, disciplinary matters, and Employee Relations.  Ms. Sagerholm is assisting with the preparation of trial in the Buccini matter, which is on the trial docket for April 11 through July 1. The potential liability in this matter is great and the need to have continuity is of great importance.   Also, the Attorney will aassist the Chief Counsel on any other legal matters as assigned.  Ms. Sagerholm is a former attorney for the Office of Chief Counsel and she is familiar with District procedures and guidelines.

 


Superintendent Reads:

 

I recommend that the School Board approve the attached amended contract with A. Denise Sagerholm and authorize Superintendent and Board Chairman to sign all necessary documents to execute this agreement.

Board Discussion Item
57. Barbieri - Protocol for Communication with Staff

Minutes: Mr. Barbieri reviewed the protocol for communication between staff and the Board and everyone agreed to continue with the system currently in place.
58. Barbieri - Master Board Training

Minutes: 

Mr. Barbieri reviewed options for Master Board Training.  The Board could receive Master Board Training here in Palm Beach County or group training in Gainesville with other districts.  Board Members requested that Mrs. Gent obtain dates for both options.

Board Members discussed the status of Superintendent Search due to Mr. Malone staying until August 2012.  Board Members agreed to schedule a Vision and Goal Setting Workshop and possibly using a facilitator such as Wayne Blanton sometime in May.  Mrs. Andrews discussed Town Hall Meetings and having them at locations to serve everyone.

59. Brill - Ethics

Minutes: 

Ms. Brill encouraged Board Members to set up a function within the organization regarding global ethics and requested the Board have a workshop to develop such an idea.

Mrs. Brown shared that she was glad to hear that this concept includes culture and looks forward to discussing this issue at a workshop.

Dr. Robinson stated that our ethics policy includes a hot line which needs to be identified.  Dr. Robinson was pleased to hear about the on-line training, sign off and accountability.

Mrs. Andrews thanked Ms. Brill for bringing this item forward.

Mr. Barbieri would like to invite Sharon Bock as she has already implemented this idea and have her share ideas at this workshop.

60. Brill - Parental Controls for Cell Phones

Minutes: 

Mrs. Brill discussed options that cell phone companies offer to filter and control what children are doing on their cell phone during school hours.  Mrs. Brill requested staff gather the information and options for parents and put the information in the parent handbook to educate our parents.

61. Robinson - Workshop to Outline Strategies to Expand Initiatives

Minutes: 

Dr. Robinson requested a workshop to outline strategies to expand initiatives such as the "I" contract at Atlantic High, Honors Contract at Atlantic High, and setting the expectations/positive behavioral support during the first week of school as they did at Boynton Beach High School.  This initiative would require buy-in and in-service training.    

The Board agreed to discuss this on April 6th since we will be at Boynton Beach High School and Mr. Barbieri suggested we invite Kathy Weigel to discuss her programs as well.                              

62. Robinson - Potential Expansion of Area Offices

Minutes: 

Dr. Robinson requested Mr. Malone provide an update regarding the potential expansion of area offices.  Mr. Malone discussed several reasons for the thought process such as succession planning and it could be another option for principals who have achieved being a successful principal at all levels and are looking for somewhere to go.

Dr. Robinson further stated that someone doing an Area Superintendent job for one year would not be her desire for Superintendent.  Dr. Robinson discussed the concept of the Area Directors moving into those positions but was not convinced that could work either.

Mrs. Brill requested that Mr. Malone review options for the entire district and bring back organizational recommendations.

Mr. Barbieri stated that he asked Mike Burke to do an analysis of having all Area Superintendent's housed at district office and share a staff.

Mr. Malone thanked the Board for the conversation and stated that Mrs. Klinek will be meeting with the Area Superintendent's tomorrow to discuss a plan which he will bring back to the Board.
