BISMARCK – The Bismarck Board of Education had a light agenda at Thursday’s monthly meeting. The District Evaluation Plan that the board reviewed at the meeting was the instructional process for MSIP purposes.
“We feel pretty good about it,” said Bismarck Superintendent Dr. Damon Gamble. “It’s still early but we feel like we are on the right path.”
Bismarck’s third cycle MSIP review is scheduled for March 8-9, 2005.
The board also granted a proxy to the Missouri Schools Investment Program Board of Directors (MOSIP) to vote on the school’s behalf in the election of directors and upon any other matters that come before the meeting.
“About two years ago the district elected to pull the district’s funds out of MOSIP and go with a local bank,” said Gamble. “However, the school has maintained its membership in MOSIP.”
The board revised the board policy to add college algebra as a weighted class. The board decided to contract with AM Barnhart for auditing purposes.
In an executive session the board evaluated certificated staff and renewed the contracts for one year of all teachers who requested contract renewals.
