Summit School District meets tonight at 5:30

Getting organized is the theme for tonight’s Summit School District meeting, slated for 5:30 at the Central Administration Office.

The meeting will kick off with a budget work session, in which board members intend to do what they can with ambiguous numbers, as they wait for final numbers to come from the state. It’s currently based on interim superintendent and assistant superintendent of business services Karen Strakbein’s best and most conservative guess as to what will happen on the state level.

There could be discussion about unfreezing salaries that have been static for 3 years, something administrative team members have said is their highest priority.

At the regular meeting, which begins at 6:30, board members will hear progress reports on updating curriculum throughout the district and in the technology department. The updates are required by the state Department of Education.

Board members will also consider adopting the new program design for alternative education, which could see increased enrollment as it enters its second year of Summit School District administration.

And a Colorado Department of Education-required district unified improvement plan is on the table, which is geared toward streamlining the schools’ improvement plans and tying them to the district’s strategic goals.
