Bonds, bud­gets on deck for YUHSD board


The Yuma Union High School District gov­ern­ing is set to talk about bud­gets at its Wed­nes­day evening meet­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to the board’s agenda, it is set to ac­cept 2018-2019 funds from the South­west Tech­ni­cal Ed­u­ca­tion District of Yuma, the county’s joint tech­ni­cal ed­u­ca­tion district, and hear an over­view of the 2017-18 in­ter­nal bud­get (in­for­ma­tional only).

The board meet­ing will start at 5:15 p.m. Wed­nes­day in the li­brary of Yuma High School, 400 S. 6th Ave. An ex­ec­u­tive ses­sion is planned to­ward the end of the meet­ing to dis­cuss and con­sider Su­per­in­ten­dent Gina Thomp­son’s eval­u­a­tion and per­for­mance pay. Thomp­son started as interim su­per­in­ten­dent last Oc­to­ber and was named to the po­si­tion in Fe­bru­ary. Any de­ci­sion about Thomp­son’s per­for­mance pay will be made in open ses­sion.

Other ac­tion items in­clude pos­si­bly ap­prov­ing a grant writer; au­tho­riz­ing the sale of school im­prove­ment bonds and ac­cept­ing do­na­tions.

A new reg­u­la­tion for sab­bat­i­cal leave, GCCF-R, will have a first read­ing, and a re­vised 2018-2019 sab­bat­i­cal agree­ment is set to be con­sid­ered among items on the con­sent agenda.

A pol­icy on pay­roll pro­ce­dures/sched­ules is also part of that slate of items, as is a pur­chase for “com­po­nents for Len­ovo ThinkPad Chrome­books and Lap­tops” and “grad­u­a­tion sup­plies.” The con­sent slate also con­tains a sched­ule for board meet­ings for the 18-19 school year and a re­quest for the county trea­surer to au­tho­rize in­vest­ments for the com­ing fis­cal year.

The board’s agenda items may be re­viewed in the District Ad­min­is­tra­tive Of­fices, cur­rently located at Yuma High School. The district an­tic­i­pates mov­ing into its new of­fices at its lo­ca­tion on Av­enue A over the sum­mer.

Those need­ing an ac­com­mo­da­tion to fa­cil­i­tate ob­serv­ing the meet­ing or speak­ing dur­ing the call to the pub­lic should con­tact the su­per­in­ten­dent’s of­fice (928) 502-4600 prior to the time sched­uled for the meet­ing.
