Another superintendent evaluation on agenda for USD 253 board

Another superintendent evaluation on agenda for USD 253 board

The Ozark School District Board of Education announced Chris Bauman as its new superintendent April 10 during a press conference hosted at Ozark Junior High School.

The curriculum will be all college coursework taught by Meramec faculty.

Raising to the state index would increase the tax rate by 1.1373 mills from 33.4511 to 34.5884 mills and would generate an additional $838,420 for the district. That includes tuition and transportation funds, earnings on investments, nutrition program sales, student activities and sales, and other local revenues.

The program will only be open to students who maintain academic as well as behavioral standards. The proposed "by-trustee area" model, which will be implemented by 2022, mandates that each trustee reside within separate areas (all trustee areas will be within Santa Maria Joint Union's boundaries) and will be elected by the area's registered voters, rather than all registered voters within the school district. Three others, Voskuhl, Nancy Reynolds and Robert Frisch, are stepping down after their terms end next year.

District leaders said they gave principals at low-performing schools in the district a couple of different options for models to jump-start academic performance at their school.

"That is about $20 million higher than a year ago", said Coughlin.

Twitter bans 270000 accounts for 'promoting terrorism'
As reported by Engadget , Twitter has already deleted more than 1.2 million accounts since August of 2015. As reported by CNET , the company has witnessed a steady decline over three separate reporting periods.


Board members said those days, if necessary, will begin with the Monday of the scheduled vacation week, in order to help parents and teachers schedule any vacation activities. The budget also includes a almost $1.2 million increase in wages and benefits district-wide; an anticipated $895,598 increase in special education costs; and an estimated $295,773 increase in facilities maintenance costs from C&W Services.

Resident and Dover High School teacher Kathy Spencer also urged the council to pass the budget.

"The board approved a capital plan in November that is the most comprehensive that we have ever had as a school system", Massey said in his address, referencing the plan.

The owner of a home that was assessed at $400,000 in 2017 paid $4,176 in K-8 school taxes.

Also at the school board meeting, the board approved the JROTC Academic Bowl Championship Trip and Cadet Leadership Camp. The board now plans to meet with their consultant from the Michigan Association of School Boards to address the superintendent search. Lewis, 52, plans to continue to work with the district through December 31. "We've had a dark cloud over this school district for a long time and, since the election, what I've heard from people over and over again is they're excited. I think we'll make a good team moving forward and I look forward to what this new board is going to bring", Pasley said.
