The board approved a list of school fees. This is not a complete list. As the school year progresses, the board is expected to re-visit the fees, adding to the list and making changes as necessary. Parents may notice that PTA dues are not included. Mr. Manuel explained that PTA dues are not considered student activity fees but rather outside dues for a parent organization.
The board also reviewed the school board's financial reports which can be found here and here.
On a sad note, the board accepted the resignation of longtime school board member, Mark Dely. Mr. Dely will be leaving Germantown to accept a new job in Indiana where he and his family will be moving very soon. In saying goodbye, the board thanked him for his service and Mr. Manuel read Proverbs 27:17 complimenting Mr. Dely for always keeping him on his toes and making him a better superintendent. Ms. Fisher presented Mr. Dely with tokens of appreciation including a photo collage depicting his years of service.
The meeting then adjourned.
