The Muskego-Norway School District Board continues its 'tour' and will convene Monday night at at 7:30 p.m.
The meeting opens only to go into closed session as the board discusses signing on with a search firm to find candidates for the upcoming vacancy in the superintendent's office. Dr. Joe Schroeder will be leaving at the end of June to take the associate executive director's role at the Association of Wisconsin School Administrators.
A decision is likely on the 2012-2013 budget assumptions, which involve what the district can do to address facilities renovations and repairs as well as what shifts in funding can mean to the tax levy. Business director Scot Ecker has cautioned that any numbers are preliminary, however an earlier memo indicated a 4.89 percent hike in property taxes from the current year, despite a 4.21 percent decrease in expenditures predicted for 2012-2013.
In addition, the board will discuss and possibly take action on adopting a calendar for the 2012-2013 school year. Feedback from both parents and teachers was weighed on issues like time allotted for conferences, start of school dates, and the possibility of altering time off during the school year to support learning retention.
