The Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) Board of Education (BOE) trustees will meet in executive session at 5:00 PM this evening, citing attorney/client privilege. Executive sessions are closed to the public.

The regular meeting, starting at 7:00 PM, will begin with a moment of silence for Huron High student Benjamin Pierce, who passed away November 8.

Skyline High School student Darius Hall will present. Special recognition will be given to Executive Director Ann Farnham and the PTO Thrift Shop.

The trustees will hear two informational reports: the monthly financial monitoring report and the FY 16 Annual Financial Audit, conducted by Plante/Moran.

There are no first briefings scheduled.

A second briefing will be held on the snow removal contract recommendation. Three local companies have been recommended for the job, splitting the district into 10 zones. The minimum unit price per push [the cost of snow removal each time it snows] will be $94,054 with the approval of the recommendation. The contracts will be funded through the General Fund.

Voting will be on the snow removal contract.

In addition to the Allen update, the trustees will hear a first briefing on a snow removal contract recommendation. There will be two Board Action Items. As trustee Donna Lasinski is favored to win the 52nd District Michigan House of Representatives seat, the trustees will discuss the process they use to fill vacancies on the board. The second Board Action Item will be to vote on the Allen Elementary Restoration and Enhancement Plan.
