AAPS Board Passes 2016-17 Budget; Ratifies Teacher Contracts

Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education regular meeting (June 15, 2016): Forsythe Middle School, 1655 Newport Rd

The board is holding an executive session at 5:30 PM, for the purposes of attorney/client privilege and negotiations.

Immediately following, a study session on Career and Technical Education (CTE) and Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) programming will be held. Study sessions are used by the trustees to learn more about a specific topic.

During the regular meeting, beginning at 7:00 PM, the trustees will first hold a moment of silence in honor of the victims of the Orlando shooting. There will be special recognition of the recipient of the Envision Michigan Scholarship Award, presented by Senator Rebecca Warren, as well as of the Project Lead the Way Master Teachers.

The trustees will hear the monthly budget monitoring report for the month of May. The annual culture and climate report will also be presented.

First briefings will be on the Sexual Health Education Advisory Committee (SHEAC) report and recommendations, the Rec & Ed contracts, the inventory resource management system recommendation, 2016 summer facilities work, and the MHSAA membership renewal for the 2016/17 school year.

Second briefings will be on Mitchell Elementary Expansion furniture purchase, the 2016/17 millage resolution, the 2015-16 final budget amendment, and the 2016-17 proposed budget.

The trustees are holding a second public hearing on the 2016-17 budget, after there was some concern voiced by members of the public that there hadn’t been enough time to view the proposed budget before the first public hearing.

Voting will be on the 2016-17 millage resolution, the 2015-16 final budget amendment, the 2016-17 proposed budget, and the Mitchell Expansion furniture purchases. As of 2:39 PM, there is a place holder on the consent agenda for a “new agenda item,” which potentially could be the ratification of the Ann Arbor Education Association (AAEA) contract agreement. Voting on the contract ended this morning for members of AAEA.

The board will also be looking at the 2016-17 proposed board meeting calendar.
