8.1 General Administration
       8.1.1 Superintendent Contract
Mr. Hoogestraat gave an update on the 2006-07 Superintendent Contract.
The salary for this year will be $125,000. Another amendment is to allow the
board to set the salary each year. The mileage rate adjustment is set by the
board in accordance with the annual IRS rate.
On motion by Mr. Bruggere second by Mr. Goode the board unanimously (4-
0) approved the superintendent contract as presented. Mr. Bruggere noted
that it has been the best year in his six years on the board. He congratulated
Dr. Woehl on an excellent year of leadership. He also commended Dale
Hoogestraat on his conducting of the superintendent evaluation. Mary
echoed Tom’s sentiments on a very positive year.
       8.1.2 Rosemont Ridge Principal
Dr. Woehl read a memo on the appointment of Debi Briggs-Crispin to the
Principal position at Rosemont Ridge. Debi replaces Thayne Balzer who has
joined the administrative team as Assistant Superintendent.
       8.1.3 Long Range Planning Report
Tom Miller presented the board with an update of the work of the Long
Range Planning Committee. The committee, comprised of 7 members has
been active since 1988. The purpose of the committee is to monitor school
and community growth among others. Noted changes:
     Added growth in Wilsonville due to building at Villebois.
    Issues involve timing for the next bond, and future building and land
    Mary thanked the committee for their work on the long range plan. She
    then opened for discussion ideas regarding a future bond.
    Use of portables may need to be discussed during the 06-07 school year.
                                                                                               Page 2 of 3
         The need to address additional primary school growth is imminent.
         Growth at Stafford and Willamette primary schools most critical. Those
         schools will field most of the growth. Current cost of a primary school is
         approximately 20 million. Tim noted that one strategy is to design up
         front of a bond. With permitting taking 6-9 months this would facilitate
         building to occur at a faster rate. Another value would be that there would
         be a drawing or rendering to show the public prior to going out for a bond.
         The local option which is extremely important to the future of the district,
         expires in 2010.

   Mr. Hoogestraat asked about the affect of potential changes in the Stafford
   Triangle. The Long Range Planning Committee is taking that into
   consideration in looking at future scenarios.
   Mr. Goode asked for a breakdown by school on growth and school
   Strategy for utilizing capacity at Bolton and Cedaroak would be an important
   undertaking during the next year.
   Ms. Furrow also asked for data on school capacities today. Tom noted that
   one challenge will be to find something on both sides of the district in order to
   pass a bond.
   It was suggested that this topic be revisited at the board retreat on August 22
   or at a future study session.
