Parents of student #A09-0182-36 expelled during the last school board meeting came
forward and asked to speak to the board. They shared with the board their child has
never been in trouble. The parents feel that a full year of expulsion is extreme,
especially since he admitted to what he did and was honest. They have to leave for work
before he leaves to go to school so he had no supervision in the mornings.

Mr. Gray responded that if their son behaves in school and works hard on his grades he
will be allowed to return to his school early. The board considers early returns for many
students.

Parents of student #A09-0351-49 came forward and stated they felt the punishment of
expulsion for a year was too harsh. They explained their son was a model child,
respectable, honest and has been an alter boy since age 8. He cooperated with the Dean
when questioned. Their son is learning English and is from Porto Rico. They feel he was
just trying to fit in with his peers and did not understand the consequences. He was
threatened by another student if he didn’t bring alcohol to school. The parents feel they
would rather their son loose an academic year than attend the Learning Academy.

Mr. Gray responded that as they probably heard earlier, it is possible for him to return to
school in less than a year, provided he behaves and keeps his grades up. Bringing alcohol
to school, which was given to a student and then passed on to another could have had a
devastating affect on the student that was on medication. The parents asked about ESOL
services and they were informed that those services would be provided to him at the
Learning Academy.

Clark Myers, Sodexho came forward to present the food service quarterly update. He
reviewed participation, operating position, web based F/R applications, the King Middle
School pilot, service improvements, and food safety.

Mr. Myers explained that although the 2008-09 participation is below the 2007-08
figures, food service is still showing a profit of $709,745.00. Mr. Myer reviewed the Web
Based Free/Reduced Application procedure. Parents can submit their application from
home, work or the school. There are multiple help and instruction buttons with the form
and it is impossible to submit an incomplete application.

Mr. Meyer reviewed some of the benefits of the pilot program at King Middle School
where the cashier is located at the beginning of the food line. The pilot should end meal
charges and help control unpaid meal balances. It will end phone calls to parents,
relieves principals of unpaid balance responsibility and places food responsibility back to
the parents.

N.     Items from Board Members

      Motion by Mr. Winkles, second by Mrs. Scott, approved having Mr. David
Brown re-appointed as its representative on the Civil Service Board. Motion carried
unanimously.

Mrs. Simpson asked to go on record that she was offended that a sale ad used “Spring
Break Specials” as advertising for beer. We lose students every year at this time due to
alcohol and as a parent and board member she did not approve of using Spring Break as a
way to promote the sale of beer.

Mrs. Scott mentioned that UWF had a seminar this week to discuss how the university
plans to use their stimulus funds for skill development and job training for those who
have lost their jobs. It may be something our employees are interested in pursuing.

Mrs. Coleman stated she appreciated the board members going to Tallahassee during
Legislative Days for the Florida School Board Association. She attended the Navarre
High School Advisory Council meeting this morning and was asked about deadlines for
transfers and re-hiring so that employees will know if they have jobs next year.

Mr. Gray asked if the district has put out any communication telling teachers we still
don’t have information about timelines. We are still waiting on legislators to finish up
their session. Mr. Wyrosdick responded that we haven’t yet because he didn’t want to
add to the confusion until we have some concrete information. We expect to have some
definitive information probably in about two weeks.

Mr. Gray shared with the board members that he received a fax stating funds have been
wired for the closing of the property in Gulf Breeze. He asked that upon confirmation of
receipt of the funds, we authorize Mr. Wyrosdick and the chairman to go ahead with the
closing. If the funds are not received for closing by the end of the day, April 20th
the board feels we should begin the process of re-bidding the property.

       Motion by Mrs. Coleman, second by Mrs. Simpson authorizing Mr. Wyrosdick to
proceed with preparing to re-bid the property in Gulf Breeze if the funds to close on the
property have not been received by the end of the day April 20, 2009. Motion carried
unanimously.


                                                                                          April 16, 2009
                                                                                           Page 9 of 11

Mr. Gray mentioned that he has talked with Karen Retherford and Doug Dillon regarding
the new HSA Account. He was concerned because it will require a bank that knows how
to handle these specialized funds. He has been assured that everything has been dealt
with and that a RFP is not necessary to proceed with changing the HSA account to Santa
Rosa County Federal Credit Union.

O.     Items from Board Attorney

        Motion by Mrs. Coleman, second by Mrs. Scott, approving entering into a lease
agreement with Santa Rosa County for office space (Marine Science Station) in the
Navarre Beach Park from April 1, 2009 to March 31, 2010 at an annual rental of one
dollar ($1.00). The term may be renewed upon agreement of both parties. The district
will be responsible for utilities and normal maintenance, while the county will take care
of any major repairs during the lease. Motion carried unanimously.

P.     Items from Superintendent

        Mr. Wyrosdick explained that he would like to schedule a workshop, followed by
a school board meeting to review and discuss the new ARRA (American Recovery and
Reinvestment Act of 2009 Funds). He stated that Carol Calfee (Title I) and Linda Novota
(IDEA) have been working hard on the Stimulus Package funds, trying to maximize
staffing plans utilizing these stimulus dollars. He would like to have a workshop and
meeting prior to May 15 if possible, so that teachers who may want to transfer have an
opportunity. After discussion, it appears that May 5, 2009 at 9:00 a.m. would work for
scheduling the workshop, followed by a board meeting.

        Motion by Mrs. Coleman, second by Mrs. Simpson, approving entering into a
subcontract agreement with the Dauphin Island Sea Lab. The district is willing to accept
the responsibility of the allowable expenses that are incurred pre-reimbursement and in
accordance with the agreement, at a maximum level of $19,250. Motion carried
unanimously.

There being no further business the meeting was adjourned.
