March 28, 2017 CAM special board meeting minutes


Special Meeting

CAM Board of Education

Monday, March 28, 2017  3:45 p.m.


The CAM Community School District Board of Education held a special meeting on March 28, 2017 in the media center at the CAM High School in Anita. Present were Director Gary Dinkla, Superintendent Casey Berlau, and Secretary Linda Edwards. Visitors were Gary Ruderman, Jordan Aggen, and Peg Wheatley. President Gary Dinkla read the mission statement, welcomed the visitors and called the meeting to order at 3:50 p.m.  The Board was advised by our school attorney that a quorum of the Board was not required to be present when the Board presented its response to the CAMEA’s initial negotiation proposal.


OPENING OFFER TO CAMEA:  Dr. Berlau presented the Board’s opening offer to the CAMEA:


 “The CAM Community School District proposes to strike all items that are now considered to be permissive subjects of collective bargaining, as well as all items that are now prohibited subjects of collective bargaining and remove them from the master contract.


The Board proposes that the following language constitute the master contract:




The initial salary for an employee for the 2017-2018 contract year shall be at a minimum of $30,825.”



Dr. Berlau’s comment was that most items previously in the master contract would be in a teachers’ handbook, but not in board policy.


ADJOURNMENT:   President Dinkla adjourned the meeting at 4:05 p.m.


These minutes are as recorded by the board secretary and subject to approval at the next regular board meeting.   The action items carried and the full text of the motions, policies and discussion are on file in the board secretary's office or on the district website www.CAMCougars.org
