                         offered to audit the School District insurance program. He also spoke
                         about the success of his Weapons in Schools Eliminated (WISE) program,
                         which he proposes the Board implement.

                         James Copeland - expressed concern about the portable units located at
                         Freedom Elementary School.

                         Jensina Gill - asked the Board not to cut salaries as a way to help balance
                         the School District budget.

                         Dave Miner - expressed his belief that it is time for new leadership in the
                         School District.

                         Jay Ruth - expressed disappointment in what he believes is a lack of
                         professionalism in School District leadership.

                         Board that bullying has become a national epidemic. He expressed
                         concern about the possibility of closing a portion of Sixth Street West to
                         accommodate Elementary E. He suggested exploring the possibility of
                         limiting access rather than closing the street.

                         Randy Howard - expressed concern about the method the Board is using
                         to deal with the district budget.

            SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT (9:15 p.m.)

                     67. Comments by Dr. Roger Dearing



                              Minutes:

                              Dr. Roger Dearing

                              Superintendent Salary - addressed the difference between his salary and
                              the salary of the Sarasota County Schools superintendent.

                              Teacher Salaries - noted that when he became Superintendent of
                              Manatee County Schools, teacher salaries were 25th in the state.
                              Currently, Manatee County teacher salaries are third in the state. He said
                              when the District has funds available, those funds go to salaries, but
                              when the state reduces funds to the District, salaries need to be reduced.

                              Media - he said that the harmful and untrue comments made in local
                              newspapers and blogs is poisonous and disastrous to the community. He
                              said this is a great community, and the community should not tolerate
                              the kind of negative and untrue comments that are being made in the
                              blogs, newspapers, and in public.

                              Singles Tennis Champion - congratulated Grayson Golden, a home-
                              schooled student, winner of the Spring National Championship Tennis
                              Singles competition, which took place in Delray Beach in April.

                              tentative contract agreement. He commended the union representatives
                              on their attitude about bargaining during the current budget crisis.
