The Tomah School Board will address financial issues when it meets tonight (Monday) at Robert Kupper Learning Center starting at 7 p.m.
Board members will review the district's financial outlook and discuss a possible referendum next year to extend the district's ability to exceed state-imposed revenue limits. Voters in April 2016 voted to allow the district to exceed revenue limits by $1.5 per year over the next three years. That authority expires at the end of 2018-19 school year.
They will also review staffing needs for the 2018-19 school year with a possible vote to approve new positions.
On another financial matter, the board will consider increasing fees for Noah's Ark and Tomah School of Childhood, which participate in the district's four-year-old kindergarten program.
Other agenda items include:
- Consideration of several curriculum items, including approval of 6-12 social studies, a seventh-grade language class using Rosetta Stone to supplement instruction and several transcripted courses with Western Technical College.
- Update on Tomah students enrolled in Rural Virtual Academy.
- Cooperative Education Services Agency contract for 2018-19.
- Foul ball netting at Dennis Senz Field.
- Purchase of three school buses.
- Selection of board representative for CESA 4 convention June 6.
- Discussion of temporary shelter and transportation services with Tomah Memorial Hospital.
- Plans for May 18 teacher collaboration/training day.
- Resignations/approval of contracts.
Prior to the regular meeting, the Finance Committee will meet at 6 p.m. and the Personnel Committee will meet in closed session at 6:30 p.m.
