Special Meeting

Tuesday, March 26, 2024


The MFL MarMac Special Meeting of the Board of Directors was held on March 26, 2024, in the Learning Commons of the Monona Schoolhouse.


President Gina Roys called the special meeting to order at 6:06 p.m. Members present at roll call were Tonya Meyer, Roberta Hass, Aaron Schroeder, and Danielle Schlake. Dr. Jon Moser and Josh Grau were absent. Also present were Tim Dugger, Superintendent, and Karla Hanson, Board Secretary/Treasurer.


Motion by Danielle Schlake, seconded by Tonya Meyer, to approve the agenda as presented.


Motion by Roberta Hass, seconded by Tonya Meyer, to approve the FY25 Supplement Support Salary Schedule as presented with an additional lane for more years of experience. Motion carried unanimously.


Calendar Update: There has not been a formal announcement, but Mr. Dugger believes that the start date will be August 23 and not earlier due to tourism concerns in some districts.


Legislative Update: AEA reform is going to happen, and the district will adjust as necessary. Expect big changes in education and media services. We expect supplemental state aid (SSA) to be 2.5%. The minimum salary for beginning teachers will be $47,500 in FY25 and $50,000 in FY26. Teachers with 12 years of experience will receive a minimum of $60,000 in FY25 and $62,000 in FY26. Fourteen million dollars has been earmarked for support staff across the state. As with all things political, these can change if Governor Reynolds does not sign the bill, but this is a best guess now.


A list of summer projects was distributed. Mr. Dugger asked the Board for guidance regarding how to handle the bid process and what the board wants to approve versus what the superintendent has the authority to approve. Current policy states “For qualifying goods and services costing more than $57,000, but less than $139,000, the superintendent will follow the regulations for cost estimates as defined in the Code and current Iowa Administrative rules for bidding and letting.” The Facility Committee will meet in April and review and prioritize the suggested projects.


President Roys adjourned the meeting at 6:22 p.m.
