Ann Arbor Public Schools Board of Education organizational/regular meeting (January 17, 2018): Forsythe Middle School, 1655 Newport Rd
The Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) Board of Education (BOE) trustees will vote themselves into executive session at 5:30 PM this evening, citing attorney/client privilege. Executive sessions are closed to the public. The regular meeting begins at 7:00 PM.
Tonight’s meeting will be a combination of an organizational meeting and a regular meeting. The organizational meeting is held the first meeting of the new calendar year. The election of officers takes place, the parliamentarian is appointed, committee assignments are made, and the meeting schedule is approved.
The December Monthly Budget Monitoring Report will be presented as an information item.
There are three first briefing items on the agenda. They include a Playground Equipment Purchase for Bach Elementary; Classroom Area Rugs Purchase; and a Utility Vehicles Purchase.
There are no second briefing items on the agenda.
The consent agenda will include the approval of meeting minutes and donations.
Board action will be taken on the 2018 Operating Mills Proposal. This action had been deferred from the last meeting, since there were only four trustees present. While technically a quorum, they wanted a stronger vote for the proposal. Also, the trustees will work to approve a Superintendent Evaluation Timeline. Several attempts have been made to approve such a timeline, but so far, the trustees cannot agree on if it should be a timeline based on the calendar year or the school year.
