Business. Proposal to revise policy GBAF to allow “long-term” substitute teachers to be eligible to purchase health insurance through the school district. (See attachment #1.) It would be to the advantage of the school district in recruiting long-term substitutes, and fairer to these employees, to have a stable benefit available, especially given the instability of the current insurance market.
The School Board made a first read of the revised policy. A straw vote was taken (advisory only) 5-0 in favor of adopting the revised policy. Second read and final vote to be made at the upcoming August 23, 2017, meeting.
At 5:30pm, in accord with NH RSA 91-A:3, article (a), the Board Meeting went into Non-public Session in order to discuss personnel matters. (Motion: Levey. Second: Greenway. Passes 5-0.)
At 5:52pm, the Board Meeting came out of nonpublic session. (Motion: Greenway. Second: Willette. Passes 5-0.)
Caroline Monson was nominated as a one-year long-term substitute teacher for 2017-18, as the 7th-8th grade language arts teacher. (Motion: Greenway. Second: Tullar. Passes 5-0.)
It was the understanding of the Board that the contract will not be written until after August 23, 2017.
At 5:55pm, meeting adjourns. (Motion: Greenway. Second: Willette.)
