April 4 Agenda

The Miller Creek School District Regular Board Meeting Agenda for April 4, 2023 has been posted here.

The agenda for the meeting includes:

  • At the beginning of the meeting, the Board will recognize and celebrate our 2023 Golden Bell Honorees. Created in 1982, the Golden Bell Awards celebrate public education in Marin County by bringing the education community together to recognize certificated teachers and classified and confidential staff. The Miller Creek School District is proud to acknowledge our 2023 Golden Bell Honorees: 

    Mary Krause, Lisa Hooper, Megan Liebman, Hildie Sims, Molly Nugent and Carlos Pedraza.

    The awards ceremony later this spring will be sponsored by San Rafael Elks Lodge #1108, Marin County School Boards Association, Marin Association of Superintendents, Marin County Office of Education and Marin School Districts. Congratulations to our honorees.

  • Trustees will hear a presentation from Lisa Klein and Riya Aghi from Marin Healthy Youth Partnerships about the Raising the Bar program. The program was first developed in 2017 in collaboration with Marin Prevention Network when county health data showed that Marin’s drinking rate was found higher than 90% of the State’s 58 counties. Raising the Bar’s goal is to influence a shift in the social norms around adult alcohol consumption and substances use at youth events by encouraging adults to model enjoyment, entertainment and delight in alcohol- and substance-free environments. A number of schools and districts in Marin are participating in this program.

  • CanDo! Foundation Executive Director Jodi Chaban will provide a report on the CanDo! Events and fundraising in the 2022-23 school year. For nearly two decades, Can Do!'s mission has been to raise funds to provide enrichment programs for the Miller Creek School District. CanDo! contributions have supported the success of our schools for many years and the impact of their legacy of enrichment opportunities offered to thousands of students over the years is immeasurable.
  • The Board will consider approval of the plan for Extended School Year services for students designated to receive summer special education services.
  • Chief Business Official, Marie Henrio, will provide an update on district funds, other than the general fund, including funds for the cafeteria/food service program, capital improvements and bond funds.
  • Trustees will review the first reading of revisions or additions to Board Policies, Administrative Regulations or Board By-Laws with regard to conflict of interest, electronic signatures, food service operations and transportation program fees.

Also on this agenda, trustees will consider routine personnel actions related to leave requests, temporary hiring, shared contract assignments and new hires.
