The Superintendent then shared the Bidding and Purchasing Guideline for the district and made the request to approve this as an Operating Procedure Protocol to be kept at the Central Office. This is actually how we utilize the guideline at this time and it is not required to be in the policy manual. The Superintendent then gave the board examples of the current contracts, agencies, etc., that we work with and how the guideline supports that.
The Superintendent shared with the board the budget audit booklets for them to review for next week when our auditors will be in for the board update.
The Superintendent shared with the board the budget binders and also shared the information regarding the budget videos. There is a document that was shared with the board, via google drive, that has links to the videos for their initial review and a document where they may add in questions that they have on each cost center. Those videos will be released to the public on February 9th after the board has a chance to review them completely.
