Attendance: Dave Hazekamp, Elroy Buckner, Kris Cole, Bob Szymoniak, John Winskas, Jessica Wiseman, and Mark Mesbergen

1. Budget Amendment
Mark and Jessica presented the budget amendment for the General Fund and Special Revenue Funds. The budget amendments include many assumptions as to how the school year is going to end.

2. Shared Services Agreement with North Muskegon
Bob presented a recommendation to extend the shared service agreement with North Muskegon for another 18 months. North Muskegon’s price would increase by 3% for the 2021-22 school year.

3. Sewer to Shettler School
Bob talked about the option to get sewer to Shettler Elementary. John provided some background information about the history of the septic and their life cycle as of today.

4. Facilities Master Plan
Bob presented the updated facilities master plan.

5. School Resource Officer
Bob discussed the option to extend the school resource officer contract with Fruitport Township. Bob and Fruitport are going to discuss this option in the upcoming month(s) and will bring contract to the board in the future.

6. Reconfirmation of the Instructional Plan
Bob presented an update regarding the educational plan.

7. Calendar
Bob presented an updated school calendar for the second semester. The only change is how the district will handle the conference week.

8. Truck Purchase
Mark and John presented a recommendation to purchase two new maintenance trucks. This purchase is part of the truck replacement schedule. Once the district receives the two trucks, the district will be selling the two trucks that were purchased back in 2018. The intent of this process is to sell the two trucks for more than what we would have to buy them for.

Meeting adjourned at 12:40 p.m.
Respectfully submitted by Mark Mesbergen
