                    Minutes:

                    Chairman Miller asked Mr. John Bowen, School Board Attorney, to
                    describe the process that would take place regarding this item during the
                    Board Meeting. Mr. Bowen noted that Ms. Waiters has requested an
                    administrative hearing. He noted that the hearing on this matter has
                    been scheduled for June 16, 2009.

                    Mr. Bowen explained that the only decision to be made during the
                    meeting would be approval to grant an administrative hearing, and take
                    action to suspend without pay effective May 19, 2009. Mr.
                    Bowen advised the Board and the audience that the Board may not
                    receive or review any information about this case.

                    Mr. Rob Shapiro, Staff Attorney, briefly reviewed the allegations that were
                    the basis for this case.

                    Mr. Adam Terbrugge, attorney for Ms. Waiters, addressed the Board. Mr.
                    Terbrugge briefly reviewed the events related to the allegations. He
                    stated his belief that this employee should not be suspended without pay.

                    Mr. Shapiro rebutted Mr. Terbrugge's statements.

                    The Board held discussion prior to voting on this matter.

                    At Chairman Miller's request, the Superintendent stated his
                    recommendation to grant the request for a hearing and suspend the
                    employee without pay effective May 19, 2009, pending the outcome of
                    the hearing.

                    Minutes:

                    Mr. Jeff Asher, Executive Director for District Planning, Policy, and
                    Program Evaluation, introduced this item to the Board.

                    Ms. Pfeilsticker expressed her appreciation for how difficult it will be to
                    implement this new rule. She requested that, at the end of each year,
                    this policy be reviewed for any alterations that could ease the burden on
                    principals, as well as ease any potential for strident communications
                    between parents on school campuses. She said she believes it is
                    important that students do not see their parents arguing on school
                    campuses.

                    Mr. Kinnan commended Mr. Asher and Mr. Bowen for their outstanding
                    preparation for this new rule. Because of the importance of this issue, he
                    asked Mr. Asher to consider advertising this new rule and the public
                    hearing in additional places besides the Bradenton Herald.

                    Mr. Asher noted that Mr. McGonegal had made that suggestion to him, as
                    well.

                    Mr. Gause commended all of the staff for the fine job they did in drafting
                    this rule. He also requested that they review and revise any portion of
                    the rule that requires parents to travel to the Parent Information Center
                    to fill out an affidavit. He would like to have as many forms as
                    practicable available at the schools. He would like to make
                    implementation of this new rule as client-friendly at the school sites as
                    possible.

                    Mr. John Bowen, School Board Attorney, noted that he had talked with
                    Mr. Gause about his requests, and will be providing suggested alternative
                    language for the Board's consideration. He said that once this rule is
                    approved, his office will conduct training sessions for school registrars,
                    front office people, and administrators. He said that he had circulated
                    this proposed rule to other school board attorneys in Florida, many of
                    whom are considering adopting this language in their own districts.

                    Mrs. Harvey commended Mr. Asher, Mr. Bowen, and their staffs, for their
                    work on this new rule. She asked if there is any way possible, when this
                    rule is being advertised, to convey the message to parents to please
                    make these decisions away from the school site.



                    Motions:
                    Motion and approval of advertising a notice          - PASS

                          Chairman Miller said he moved this item to New Business to
                          allow the Superintendent an opportunity to explain to the
                          Board and the community why he is bringing this
                          recommendation to the Board.

                          Mr. McGonegal explained that food costs are continuing to
                          increase at significant rates. He said Food Service is self-
                          sufficient, and he would like for it to remain self-sufficient.
                          He also said that he prefers to make necessary annual small
                          rate increases, rather than making less frequent, but
                          larger, rate increases.
