The Board of Education approved a $30.8 million school budget in a 4-2 vote Wednesday.

After an executive session following the meeting, the board approved an execution agreement to purchase 90 acres of land located west of the current school bus garage building on Wilbur Road, approximately 25 acres of which will be home to the new Granger Elementary School. The safe will store long guns, which the officers normally carry in their squad cars, making the guns more accessible to them if needed. They have since expanded that to include middle school students.

"We can't use [EROs] exclusively for enforcement action". Due to capital exclusions, Lictus noted that the current budget proposal accounts for the district adding $97,000 to debt services in next year's budget with the goal of keeping the tax levy flat and not exceeding the tax cap. "It's disturbing. When 75 percent of law referrals are for students with disabilities, and 90 percent of those law referrals are for black students with disabilities, we have a really big problem", Moffit said.

A checklist of questions addressed whether school security protocol was being followed, such as all doors to a school building being locked with visitors being buzzed in through a front door for admittance.

Approved the appointment of Judy Earl to the library board.

Filling every classroom with a class means things like small-group instruction will have to go somewhere else.

"The district leadership has met with Toronto Police and the (Jefferson County) sheriff's department to identify safety concerns, evaluate the schools' emergency operations plans and schedule future safety drills", Taggart added.

"I think we can agree that this trend of cost is borderline not sustainable", said Mazzocchi.

School board Chairman Alan Duncan thanked Williams for his invitation and later asked staff to determine if using High Point's council chambers would be feasible. Northwestern has opted out of the co-op, Huston said, so next year there will be seven schools involved in the Hayward Co-op instead of eight. However, I will say that playing a role in determining the educational path for students in your school district is a very important task, that needs to be taken seriously, and strong candidates need to seriously consider serving.

Coach Marianne Mueller said the students have had "an awesome year".

In order for the revenue to be used, the School Board will need to submit a request to the City Council for a supplemental appropriation by the end of April or early May, Krauss said to the board.

Moffit said she knows of at least five people of color that grew up in the Madison community, went through the school system, applied for jobs in the district and were not hired.

Superintendent Jennifer Parish said the school division is expecting more money from the state and saving on health and dental insurance, allowing her to request flat funding from the city.

"Not only do I bring that voice of being a Latina, but (I bring) my broad experience in law enforcement and looking at critical issues through policy", she said.

"We want what's best for the kids". "It's a balancing act".
