AGENDA ITEM: #15 AGENDA TITLE: Equipment release

ITEM PREPARED BY: Stuber ITEM REQUESTED BY: Hillman

SUMMARY: Krista Craig is resigning from the SD. Because of a back injury, the state made several modifications to her work site to include a special workstation/desk. Ms. Craig believes the desk is hers, but the state has told us it belongs to the district. It is not surplus property and could be used by the district however we cannot give it to Ms. Craig as that requires board action. There appears to be some question as to whether the desk was always intended to be hers but the paperwork from the state is clear that the equipment was "Assigned to employer" not the "worker." Whether it was deemed surplus at the time of purchase and other matters are also in question; none-the-less we (the administration) cannot give it away to anyone.

SUPERINTENDENT'S ADVICE: If the objects have utility for the district I find it unwise to give it away when it will need to be replaced.

AGENDA ITEM: #13 AGENDA TITLE: Residency issues

ITEM PREPARED BY: Stuber ITEM REQUESTED BY: Chair

SUMMARY: The Board Chair and DO have been made aware of CSD residents attending other schools by ruse or deception, all without a transfer agreement or by paying tuition. In one case a student is allegedly living at home but the attending district has on file a Confirmation of Residency Application and an Execution Of Power Of Attorney Agreement both of which imply the student is a resident of their district. Another case involves a student living at home but listing with the attending district what is reported to be a fictitious residence/address.

SUPERINTENDENT'S ADVICE: The District can and will upon Board direction write ODE and inform them of our suspicions. ODE has told us that if there is a statutory problem ODE will not allow the student to be counted by the attending district. One problem for the Supt is burden of proof because the time and/or resources to investigate these issues (beyond a letter to the attending district) is not available. There is a problem dealing with parents who legitimately try to obtain a transfer and are denied when they find that others are getting around the transfer resolution WITH our knowledge (whether we know for sure or not). From time to time we find students attending our own schools whose parents are not residents and I would be hard pressed to state with certainty how many still are attending here under those conditions.

AGENDA ITEM: #12 AGENDA TITLE: Transfer request

ITEM PREPARED BY: Stuber ITEM REQUESTED BY: Randall

SUMMARY: The Randalls have a son they wish to enroll in Pleasant Hill. Their reasons are not attached but I anticipate a formal letter from them. We have no exchange candidates at this time so the Randalls have been informed they must appeal to the school board.

SUPERINTENDENT'S ADVICE: The Randalls attorney (Lerner) contacted me after learning the transfer position of the School Board. The attorney argues that the student is possibly TAG and we have no honors classes to meet the studentís needs. I referred the Lerner letter to a respected TAG-knowledgeable attorney and her response is represented in a May 5, 2003 letter from me to Lerner. I met with the Randalls on May 5th and it appears to me that they want the transfer because PH has AP classes and/or we donít, or because while we may have comparable course offerings we donít have the number of students in those classes that they think is appropriate for their son. I believe the whole TAG argument is moot because their son is not legally identified at this point and if he is identified we are required to provide TAG appropriate accommodations as our attorney points out. From a policy point of view the board should consider their treatment of all students who are TAG, or high achievers.
