I have reviewed the minutes.  I agree with Kent that the board were in
agreement with the expenditures proposed by Roberta; viz
R. Barone discussed with the board using of some of the contingency fund to
purchase ground cover (mulch) for both playgrounds at a cost of
$2200-3000.00 and approximately $1,800.00 for folding chairs needed for
school programs etc.
THE BOARD EXPRESSED AGREEMENT WITH THESE PROPOSALS

There is at least one typo:
R. Barone also presented a letter of acknowledgment for a rate increase
effective March 1, 1999, from the law firm or(OF) record, Paul, Frank &
Collins, Inc.

In respect to the following I would ask for the correction IN CAPS:
NEW MEMBER OBSERVATIONS & QUESTIONS: K. Holden wanted to ask that in future
meetings the board should add to their agenda time to discuss how much of
the principal's time is currently being spent on administering special
education, and what the board might be able to offer in the way of
solutions to this time issue. (W. Cowan requested that R. Barone spend time
preparing solutions she sees as possible, and come prepared to present
these to the board for discussion)

W. COWAN SUGGESTED THAT R. BARONE SORT OUT THE VARIOUS COMPONENTS OF THE
TIME SHE SPENDS ON SPECIAL EDUCATION ISSUES, IDENTIFYING THOSE WHICH SHE
FEELS COULD BE SHIFTED AWAY FROM HER.  IT WOULD THEN BE POSSIBLE TO
BRAINSTORM SOLUTIONS.

I would suggest that under OLD BUSINESS in the next AGENDA the following be
listed:
Report from D. Deutl re Waitsfield meeting.
Approval of "old" minutes.
Report from Wavell re Community-School Project meeting
Status Sp.Ed legislative initiative
Status of review requested by superintendent
Status of transportation problem
Status of the Barone Sp.Ed overload problem
Status of Board retreat
