While in session board members expect to address some personnel matters of nonelected personnel that are likely to include some discussion behind closed doors after they recess from public session. After the meeting resumes, board members expect to take action regarding recommendations for employment, accept resignations and/or approve terminations.

Board members also expect to appoint two or three of their members to serve on a search and interview screening team to select a suitable candidate to hire as the new intermediate principal at Atchison Elementary School.

Board members also expect to approve the Apple Lease Agreement concerning the purchase of new 13-inch MacBook Air Eighth-generation laptops for all teachers and administrators. The current 4-year-old laptops in use will replace other laptops in the district that are timing out for recycling. Every four years, board members sign an Apple Lease agreement for the computers.
