                                         Nominated by a parent

       These teachers exemplify team work. Together they plan, prepare, and implement top-notch instruction for
       their students. Through daily collaboration, each instructor highlights her own passions and skills and then
       freely shares them with the other. Because of their close working relationship, their students benefit from
       the many talents of two expert teachers. Support, assistance, experience, knowledge, humor, and friendship
       constantly travel between these classrooms, making their rooms a model for success in schools.

                             Tina Murphy, Instructional Assistant at Ryland Heights
                                          Nominated by a colleague

       I congratulate Tina on her positive work ethic and endless patience with staff and students. She is a very
       hard worker that is extremely caring and giving.

   This month our district wide energy consumption is down 12.1% compared to our baseline year (2005-
   2006). We used 259,202 kWh less than in May 2006, that is a reduction of 388,803 lbs. of CO2. This is
   equivalent to removing 26 cars from the roads or planting 53 acres of trees.

     Congratulations to this month’s winners:

     Simon Kenton H.S. – 25.4%
     Twenhofel Middle – 31.6%
     Taylor Mill Elementary – 21.8%



D. 2010-11 Kenton County School District Gifted Student Population                                Enc. 6

         The Kenton County School District Gifted Education Program identification process for the 2010-11
         school year has been completed and entered into Infinite Campus as official documentation for all
         identified students in our school district. The information is required by the Kentucky Department of
         Education and will be used for state data collection in May 2011. The chart identifies each school and the
         percent of students identified in the PTP (Primary Talent Pool) for grades kindergarten through third and
         the percent of students in all categories of formal identification that take place in grades four through
         twelve. Once students are identified formally in any grade, their identification continues until high school
         graduation. Multiple gifted services are provided to identified students.

        The PTP (Primary Talent Pool) is an informal identification of students in grades kindergarten through
         three (P1- P4) who show potential for high ability learning. Students in the top quartile are considered for
         the Primary Talent Pool. Parents are notified in writing at the beginning of each school year of the
         student’s identification. Parents of Primary Talent Pool students are given a plan listing the teaching
         service options used with the student to meet their needs, interests and abilities.
        Students identified gifted and talented formally in grades 4 through 12 may be identified in one or more
         categories.
        Formal identification in gifted categories of General Intellectual Ability, Creative or Divergent Thinking
         and Specific Academics is for students in grades 4 through 12 who are identified using criteria of 96%/9th
         stanine on norm referenced test measures, teacher recommendations, behavioral checklists, and other
         appropriate documentations.
           Formal Identification in gifted categories of Leadership and Visual and Performing Arts consists of at least
            three pieces of evidence from nomination forms, characteristic checklists, anecdotal records, letters of
            recommendations, auditions, portfolios of performance, awards and other appropriate documentation.
            Parents/guardians of students formally identified gifted are notified in writing at the beginning of each
            school year listing all areas of gifted identification. Once each semester a (GSSP) Gifted Student Service
            Plan is reported to the parent/guardian providing information on multiple teaching service options being
            used to meet the needs, interests and abilities of their student. Parent Feedback Forms are sent home with
             the GSSP to receive parent input and to address any questions.

VI: Discussion and Action

      1. Revision to Title 1 Parent Involvement Policy – 08.13451                            Enc. 18

         The District Title 1 Parent Involvement Policy Meeting was held on March 7, 2011 and April 5, 2011 to
         meet the federal requirements of Title 1 Regulation. Input from the meetings was used to make the
         revisions to the existing policy.
    Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board adopt the revision to policy 08.13451.


 2. EduJobs Grant Approval                                                                  Enc. 19

    The EduJobs allotment for Kenton County Schools is $2,317,734. The funds must be expended by
    September 30, 2012. Expenditures must be for salaries and benefits only, and also must be school-based.
    The funds are to be used for the new associate principal at Turkey Foot, the elementary instructional
    coaches, and substitute employees. Health insurance costs for employees must be charged to the grant, since
    substitutes do not carry health insurance we will be able to optimize the use of the dollars. $875,222 will be
    used for the coaches and the associate principal at Turkey Foot for FY 2012. The remaining $1,442,512 will
    be used for certified and classified substitutes for the rest of 2011 and for 2012.

    Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board of Education approve the budget for the
    EduJobs grant allocation for FY 2011 and 2012.

 3. Waiver to the District’s Facilities Plan

    The Kenton County School District is scheduled to start its Four Year Facility Plan Cycle in 2011. We are
    requesting a waiver to the start of this process for the following reasons:

    1. The Kentucky Department of Education has contracted with a firm to develop an evaluation system to
       review the Commonwealth’s school facilities and provide an evaluation of categorizing all buildings.
       This information will be pertinent in developing our District’s Facility Plan.
    2. Also, we are still working on the major projects from our 2007 Facility Plan.

    Recommendation: It is recommended that the Kenton County Board of Education request a waiver
    to the current District’s Facilities Plan contingent on Kentucky Department of Education approval.

6. Change Orders to Purchase Orders – Turkey Foot Middle School – BG 08-143                    Enc. 22

    The new Turkey Foot Middle School project has been completed. Several of the material suppliers purchase
    orders were not used in full; therefore the original contract amount is reduced.

    MATERIAL SUPPLIER                             AMOUNT OF P.O.                AMOUNT NOT USED
    CBC Specialties- P.O. 09003377                $36,150.00                          ($2,237.00)

                                                             TOTAL             ($3,554.40)

    Recommendation: It is recommended that the Kenton County Board of Education approve the Change
    Orders to Purchase Orders for the above material suppliers, contingent on Kentucky Department of

7. Revised Calendar 2010-2011                                                                  Enc. 23

   The revised calendar for 2010-2011 is presented for board approval. This calendar reflects 6 snow days and is
   the final calendar for 2010-2011.

   Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board approve the revised calendar for 2010-2011.

8. 2011-2012 Salary Schedules                                                                  Enc. 24

  Administrative staff and the KCEA negotiating team came to agreement on the 2010-2011 187 Day Certified
  Salary Schedule on May 4, 2011. The salary schedules have been increased by 1.0% for 2010-2011. KCEA has
  ratified this schedule. Also included are classified salary schedules. These schedules have also been increased by
  1.0%. Supplementary salary schedules have been increased by 1.0% as have substitute teacher schedules.
  Employees will also receive the built-in experience step on their respective salary schedules. An additional
  experience step for 29 years of experience was added to all schedules. This enhancement was requested by
  KCEA. Bowling coaches have been added to the supplemental schedule. The Administrative index schedule
  includes the Director of Student Engagement and the Middle School Associate Principal. The Head Teacher
  Index for NKYDC was adjusted to reflect a 220 day calendar instead of 230. The Safety Officer schedule was
  changed to Safety Officer/Risk Manager and was increased from 185 days to 230 days.
  Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board approve the 2011-2012 Salary Schedules.


9. 2011-2012 Tentative Working Budget                                                Enc. 25

  A first draft budget for FY 2011-2012 was presented at the January 2011 meeting of
  the Board of Education. The next step in the budget development process is the
  Tentative Working Budget.


  The Tentative Working Budget provides a more defined picture of estimated revenues
  and expenditures than the January draft budget. The SEEK base has been estimated
  for next year at $3903 per student. The 2010-2011 SEEK base is $3.868. However,
  actual funding will be reduced by an estimated $501,000 due to the SEEK
  appropriation being underfunded at the state level.



  General Fund

  SEEK A.D.A. is estimated at 13,157 in the SEEK formula. This is a no growth
  posture. This equates to an increase of $393,000 in SEEK revenue. Preliminary
  property certifications have been received and local tax revenues from utility,
  motor vehicle, and property tax are being projected to increase about 2.5%.
  However at this time, local collections look as though they will be lower than
  last fiscal year. Total local tax collections are currently $580,000 below last
  year’s May levels. However, due to cost shifting to ARRA funding and budget
  adjustments our ending balance for 2011 should increase about $2M over last year.
  The projected beginning fund balance for 2011-12 is $18.9M.


  On the expenditure side, salaries, benefits and workers’ compensation are expected
  to increase by $5.2M. This is rather confusing since $4.5M of personnel costs are
  coming back to the General Fund from ARRA and State Fiscal Stabilization Funding
  and Patton Vocational School. At the same time $1.1 of substitute employee pay is
  moving from the General Fund to EduJobs. Actual new salary and benefit costs being
  absorbed is $2.5M. Non-personnel costs have been allowed an increase of 2%.
  Personnel costs are 80% of the General Fund expenditures. Utility costs are down
  7% over last year for a year-to-date savings of $166,000,and diesel costs have
  only increased 7%($41,000), in spite of the spike in per gallon cost. $640,000 is
  budgeted for the purchase of 8 buses. In addition we are purchasing 4 buses from
  Breckinridge County for $9,000 each, for a total of 12 buses to be added to the
  fleet. $317,750 is included as the KETS Match.




  Total budgeted expenditures excluding on-behalf paid by the state and the
  contingency are $90.1M. Projected revenues are $87.3M. Expenditures exceed
  receipts by $2.8M and the budgeted contingency is $16.1M, equating to 17% of
  current expenses. Compounding this problem is that in 2012-2013, the EduJobs
  funding will be depleted, adding $1.1M of salary cost to the General Fund. This
  presents a potential serious funding gap in 2012-2013. The projects listed below
  are budgeted for 2011-2012. They are one-time expenditures and will not be
  recurring in 2012-2013.

Special Revenue Fund

This is essentially an in an out fund for State and Federal programs. All
federal and state programs are budgeted at a zero balance. These grants are
estimated at $17.8M. The actual district allotments have not been distributed by
KDE at this time. Some of the grants in this fund are:

KERA Preschool
Textbooks
Extended School Services
Professional Development
Safe Schools
Title II
IDEA
IDEA Preschool
Title I

The funding for these programs have not been released by KDE. Districts have
been cautioned to budget conservatively with regards to grant funding. The
reduction is estimated in the 3% to 5% range. However, we have been told it will
not be across the board cuts. Most of the district exposure from reduced grant
funding will come from KERA Preschool, Family Resource Centers, and Safe
Schools. These grants pay for employees that are already on contract. The
Preschool shortfall is estimated to be approximately $500,000. That shortfall is
budgeted in the General Fund. However, these projections also include the
EduJobs funding of $2,317.734. ARRA funding from previous years has been
expended. State Fiscal Stabilization Funding has been depleted. This funding
will not be available in 2011-12. $317,750 is included as the KETS Technology
Match.
      Capital Outlay

      $821,632 of this state allotment of $100 per student is to be used on debt
      service. The remaining $494,338 will be expended on Gym air conditioning at
      Beechgrove, Fort Wright, Piner, Ryland heights, and White’s Tower. The total
      received from the state is estimated at $1,315,700.

      Building Fund
      Only debt service is budgeted in the Building Fund. Debt service to be paid
      from this fund for FY 2010-11 will be $13,663,322. Revenues to the Building Fund
      are generated from local property tax ($12,272,718) and state matching
      funds($1,390,604). With the Scott projects, total district annual debt service
      is projected to be $14,484,954.


      Construction Fund
      This fund is budgeted for the Scott renovation. Approximately, $15,000,000 to
      $16,000,000 is planned for Scott in the next two phases. The construction fund
      will also be providing the match of approximately $1,350,000 for the solar
      panels at Turkeyfoot.

      Food Service

      The Food Service budget was increased to accommodate overall salary increases,
      food costs and provides for the payment of indirect cost to the General Fund of
      $300,800. Estimated revenues are projected to increase more than 9%. Even with
      increasing food prices and salary increases, the budgeted contingency for Food
      Service is expected to be $1,469,365 or 20.9%. The total budget for Food Service
      is estimated at $7,023,581.

      Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board approve the 2011-2012 Tentative Working Budget.




10. Change Order to Purchase Orders – Simon Kenton High School Phase VI – BG 09-226               Enc. 26

   Purchase Orders issued to two vendors at the start of the Simon Kenton Phase VI project exceeded the actual cost
   of materials required for specific areas of that project. Below is a summary of expenditures and remaining
   balances to be retained within the construction fund account:

      Material Supplier     P.O. Number     P.O. Amount             Amount Spent          Amount Remaining
      Anixter, Inc.         10001468.00     $58,816.00              $42,016.18                $16,799.82
      Gerdau Ameristeel     10001502.00       27,075.00              19,174.90                  7,900.10

      Recommendation: It is recommended that the Kenton County Board of Education approve Change
      Orders to Purchase Orders assigned to Anixter, Inc. for a credit of $16,799.82 and to Gerdau
      Ameristeel for a credit of $7,900.10, contingent on Kentucky Department of Education approval.

11. School Calendar 2012-2013 School Year                                                                    Enc. 27

    A committee consisting of KCEA representatives and Central Office personnel have met to create and
    approve the school calendar for the 2012-2013 school year. After it was created, this was voted on and
    officially ratified through KCEA. This calendar meets all current requirements for state and Kentucky
    Department of Education guidelines.

    Recommendation: It is recommended that the board approve the 2012-2013 School Calendar

12. Bus Purchases

   The new school bus purchase request for 2010-2011 is due in Frankfort this month. After reviewing past
   purchases and planning for the future I met with Kelley Gamble to discuss the purchase. We agreed the
   recommendation is to purchase eight (8) new buses for next school year. We will review the budget in early 2011
   to see if additional buses could be purchased.

   I recommend purchasing the following buses:

   Three (3) Freightliner/Thomas 66 passenger Conventional Hybrid Buses                 Approximately          $252,000
               with offset of state grant funds for full cost
   Five (5) Freightliner/Thomas 78 passenger Forward Control Buses                      Approximately          $455,000

                                                                                                               $707,000


   Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board approve these bus purchases.


13. Job Descriptions                                                                                    Enc. 28

   Through numerous meetings with Cabinet and principals about needs of the district, changes are needed to
   properly depict job descriptions for the 2011-12 school year. All new jobs and/or major revisions are addressed in
   the central office staffing plan for the 2011-12 school year.

   Construction Project and Facilities Manager (New – Salary Schedule enclosed)
   District Safety Officer/Risk Manager (New – Salary Schedule enclosed)
   Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources and Community Relations
   Coordinator of School Health Services
   Preschool Secretary
   Director of Secondary Education

   Recommendation: It is recommended that the Board approve the revised and new job descriptions.

14. Central Office Staffing Plan 2011-12

   In response to changing needs across the district and feedback from schools on future needs, the following
   changes in duties, positions and/ or responsibilities are being proposed for the 2011-12 school year.

                                                   Changes in Positions
       Vacated Positions:              Deputy Superintendent
                                       Autism Consultant

       To be Replaced with:            Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources and Community Engagement
                                       .6 Special Education Consultant



       Other Proposed Changes                                                   Cost                     Savings

      District Safety Officer to District Safety Officer/Risk Manager          $9,000

   With the retirement of the District Safety Officer it is proposed that the position be replaced with a District Safety
   Officer/Risk Manager at 230 days. An additional 45 days would be added to the existing position to allow for the extra
   duties of risk management. While there is a possible initial increase in cost, there is an expectation that there will be a
   savings when risk management duties are assumed. It is anticipated that a maximum of $9,000 could be incurred, but costs
   could be lower than current outlay, depending on the experience level of the employee and future gains acquired through
   prevention.

      Early Childhood Consultant                                                                        $18, 200

   With the retirement of the Early Childhood Consultant, an adjustment of duties will be made. The consultant days will be
   reduced by 10 days and the preschool secretary will increase from 180 to 197 days. Half of salary of the preschool
   secretary will be funded by new private school funding.

      Central Office .5 Clerk/STEM Consultant                                                           $28,000

   With the retirement of a .5 clerk, funds from that position will be moved toward a change in position of the STEM Consultant
   from Level I to Level IV. He will be given the assignment of District Chemical Hygiene Officer in addition to his
   existing duties offering Stem Consultant expertise, assistance in the design of the Patton STEM campus, ongoing
   work with UK green curriculum projects, and the continuation and expansion of the Duke Energy IPad projects in
   two schools. Existing administrative staff will assume the duties of clerk. This staffing change will result in a
   savings of $28,800.

      Project Construction Manager                                                             Up to $1 million

   This is a new position that will replace the need to contract with an outside contractor. It will allow the district to
   monitor all construction projects on a daily basis. This individual will supervise and work with architects,
   engineers, contractors and all entities involved in the construction of school facilities.

                                        Changes in Titles based on responsibilities

       Ellen Zimmer            From Director of Federal Programs to Director of Early Childhood Education (Will assist with
                               the supervision of district preschool and primary programs)

       These changes will result in no additional costs or savings to the district
______________________________________________________________________________

       Recommendation: It is recommended that the board approve the central office staffing changes for the
       2011-12 school year.
