    4. 2012-13 Board Goals Discussion.  Information will be available on June 18. 
      Mr. DeHaas reported he met with Dr. Orban and reviewed the list of goals.  Tonight, we would like to discuss measurements for the goals.

      Academic Performance:

      Dr. Orban stated there are more than one measurement and Board is suggesting utilizing three-year rolling measurements; there may not  be PSSA in 11th grade; suggest using attendance, graduation rate, AP Exams (numbers and scores), SATs (numbers and scores), grades 3-8, PSSAs; grades 7 & 8, PVAS model; grade 1, DIBELS; growth model incorporation for each student to show growth for students.  The administration intends to craft an easy to read document to track this information.

      A discussion continued.  Points of the discussion include - much of the information will be based on Keystone Exams; drop out rate, attendance and growth opportunity will be available but will be more difficult to acquire; the three-year rolling chart will be user-friendly to review academic performance; establishing targets will take place after measurements are established; financial assistance is available for students wishing to take the Advanced Placement Exams if a financial need is present. 

      Mrs. Clancy suggested the measurement report be formulated in the Academic Standards & Curriculum Committee and then presented to the Board.

      Accountability:

      Mr. DeHaas stated a format  could include a four or six page spread available to the public in electronic format and possibly a printed format.  The Communications Committee could work with this and present it to the Board.

      Advocacy:

      Mr. DeHaas shared a new initiative of the local county Board presidents is to meet and see if a theme is evident with all districts.  No objections were expressed and Mr. DeHaas plans to proceed to attend a meeting in late summer or early fall.  Would the Board be willing for the Solicitor to research and provide a short presentation (15 to 30 minutes) on what the Board's liability may be in joining with a lawsuit for a reconsideration of the funding formula?  The concensus was yes.

      A discussion continued.  Points of the discussion included - this would be good usage of resources; information would need to be researched if joining is still an option as it may be a closed class; what is the cost to join and would it be worth joining?

      Information and Communication:

      Mr. DeHaas stated a previous discussion included the idea of identifying items that the Board wants to pull back from committee and be sure the whole Board is involved during the process.  Dr. Orban and I discussed several things that could have been discussed at the whole Board level and taking information back to committee.  The Board will need to prepare with questions prior to when items are being voted upon and anticipate information back from administration in a timely manner.

      A discussion continued.  Points of the discussion included - several items from last year that may have slipped with awareness being known by Board members were outsourcing food service, athletic training services contract renewal, better support of the administration's effort would be available knowing these decisions needed to be made; an example of an item discused 18 months in advance was the boundary change; asking the right questions is important and having a sense of what is coming during the next academic year would be very helpful; having status updates throughout the process would be important too; communication is important with Board members to know when information is going to be shared with staff.

      Community Engagement:

      Dr. Orban stated with the election in 2013, scheduling an educational session for potential Board members having PSBA lead the meeting; having a short presentation from administration what is needed from board members; sharing from current Board members of their experience; open this type of program up to York County, with YSSD hosting program.

      Mr. DeHaas added that starting this program in the fall would be suggested.

      Financial Management:

      Mr. DeHaas stated that he was not able to work with Dr. Orban and Mr. Younkin on this yet.

      A discussion continued.  Points of the discussion included - in addition to knowing the structure and what is happening, the next question is what should happen?, examples are the tax rate and the cost per student, reimbursement rate, make it more than an observation, do we have control over any of these factors and what should they be?; the PDE Your Schools, Your Money program is no longer funded by the state and is no longer in existence; the administration has been moving in the budgeting and reporting process to breakout the costs by building and program, data is available from the state for data comparisons with tax rates with other school districts in York County and school districts of our size in the state, the information is two years old.

      Mr. DeHaas asked the Finance Committee to add this on their agenda for further review. 

      Mr. DeHaas stated that the committee chairs will create action plans for further work and report back to the Board.  The goal listing will be revised changing the title to District Goals and administration may have additional ones to include.

      An opportunity was provided for public comment?  There was none at this time. 
  4. Superintendent's Report - Dr. Orban
    1. Student Enrollment Report
      Dr.  Orban highlighted above information.  The Kindergarten enrollment is still low and there is not much change from last month. 
    2. PA Economy League Student Enrollment Study Proposal. 
      Dr.  Orban reported the last time an enrollment study was requested from PA Economy League was 2004 and it was updated in 2006.  The administration suggests another full study be requested.  There is a cost involved.

      Motion, Shaffer, Second, Bates; Approval of the proposal to request a student enrollment study from PA Economy League.  Roll Call Vote, all present, yes.  Motion carried 8-0.
    3. Approval of the Graduates of the Class of 2012.  The administration recommends the Board approve the list of graduates of the Class of 2012 and that a listing be placed in the minutes of tonight's meeting.  [Motion and Vote] 
      Motion, Bates, Second, Leopold-Sharp; Approval of the Graduates of the Class of 2012. 

      A discussion continued.  Point of the discussion included - Per the School Code, action is necessary from the Board granting authority for distributing diplomas and academic certificates.

      Voice Vote, all present, yes.  Motion carried 8-0.
    4. High School Model United Nations Club Recommendation.  The administration recommends approval of the High School Model United Nations Club Recommendation.  [Discussion, Motion and Vote]
      Dr. Orban highlighted the above information and added Mr. Jesse Weld is in attendance this evening for any questions.

      A discussion continued.

      Mr. Weld responded to several questions.  I am anticipating 20 students and it will be an open opportunity for all students.  There will be no overnight trips as events take place in Lancaster, Central York School District and Eastern York School District and one van would be utilized for transportation.  The registration cost per student is $3.

      Motion, Bates, Second, Clancy, an unanimously passed; Approval of the High School Model United Nations Club Recommendation.
    5. Overnight Field Trip Request for the High School Band and Color Guard.  
      Dr. Orban highlighted the above information and stated Mr. Matt Husler is in attendance to answer any questions.

      A discussion continued.  Points of the discussion included - concern was expressed about students performing at the Wild Horse Saloon where alcohol would be served; would this be in line with district policy?; previously, band trip performances were done in a restaurant where a bar is present; is the district being consistent with these situations? 

      Mr. Husler replied the restaurant in downtown Nashville, TN and is accustomed to having student groups perform.  Earlier this year, he visited the venue and believes it is a great opportunity for the students to perform in front of a large number of patrons.  The stage is a distance from the patrons.  The students would eat in a private room away from the general public.  Students are permitted to perform at HersheyPark in the spring and alcohol is served in the park.

      Dr. Orban stated students have performed at the Employees Reception previously under controlled conditions.

      A dicussion continued.  Points of the discussion included - what will color guard be doing during the concert performance?

      Mr. Husler replied the color gard will perform with the band in the front of the stage.

      Mrs. Clancy commented that she objects with the performance during the trip in a restaurant where alcohol will be served.

      Ms. Bates stated the administration and policy review committee could look at this for practice and consistency. 

      Motion, Leopold-Sharp, Second, Kirk; Approval of the overnight trip request for the High School Band and Color Guard.  Roll Call Vote, all present, yes, except Clancy, Miller.  Motion carried 6-2.

      Dr. Orban had an additional item to discuss with the Board, the proposed Trojan Youth Center.  The center would be operated in partnership with CTC and Luther Memorial Church for an after school activity for high school and middle school students.  This activity is not a faith-based activity.  Middle school students would have the option to ride a bus to the center after school if room exists on a bus that is coming by the center.  The district does have a strong partnership with Luther Memorial Church and the church will be assuming all liability.  CTC would train volunteers and clearances are necessary.  A study area and socializing area will be available.

      A discussion continued.  Points of the discussion included - the Board was supportive of the concept but had concerns with the name that may be misleading that it is a district operated activity.

      Dr. Orban will contact CTC and ask for a revision with the name and make sure the disclaimer statement is on all communication to parents.

      There was an opportunity for public comment.  There was none at this time.
