Yantis school trustees have pushed their regular July meeting back a week, but have called a session this week to handle some personnel matters and a waiver.

Yantis Independent School District Board of Trustees normally meets the second Monday of each month at 7 p.m. in the cafeteria at the school. This month YISD board, has opted to push back their regular July meeting by one week.

However, the board will convene at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 16, in YISD Conference Center for a brief meeting with two purposes. The board will consider accepting some resignations and other personnel matters presented during executive sessions as well as an accelerated instruction waiver.

Trustees will then hold their regular July session Monday, July 21, at 7 p.m. in YISD cafeteria.

During the regular board meeting next week, the superintendent is slated to give updates about the school grounds and House Bill 5, the bill approved by the Legislature in January. HB5 deals with a number of items, including the foundation high school program regarding graduation programs. Trustess will also be asked approve local school board policy EIE with academic achievement related to retention and promotion; 

They will hear financial reports and a technology update, and discuss items for future agendas, including setting dates for upcoming budget workshops.

A number of items on the July 21 agenda deal with financial matters for staff. The board will be asked to consider salary scales for the 2014-15 school year, wage increases for hourly employees and 2014-15 stipends. Also, the board is slated to accept resignations and, during executive session ,consider recommendations for new personnel to fill openings. The board will reconvene following the closed session and take action on those personnel matters.

Trustees will consider purchasing attendance credits for Chapter 41 status as well.

YISD trustees are being asked to consider minimum bids on property from three tax sales; an inter-local cooperative purchasing agreement with Region 7 Education Service Center; a flex year waiver; and budget amendments.
