6. Director's Comments and Items of Information
Dr. William Kovach, Director

Cindy Payton and I are working on the 2021-2022 C9 operating budget.  We plan on introducing our draft to the board for consideration in a work session in May before the scheduled May meeting.  We will then take comments and adjustments and return with a potential final draft in June for approval.

This round of ESSER funding does not include C9.  Instead of requesting funding through the participating schools (the way we do for the Teacher Appreciation Grant), our 2021-2022 budget proposal will include a slight increase to accommodate.

6.1 Superintendent Meeting Notes
Dr. Kovach

I went to the Statehouse to meet with Senator Raatz (chair of education committee) and Representative Behning (chair of the education committee) Monday and advocated to keep the "less than moderate" CTE funding in place.  Instead of hosting a meeting with the superintendents due to this conflict in my schedule I sent an email.  The legislators continue to say they are going to remove the language that is detrimental to CTE, but the language has yet to be removed.

-I am presenting updates with scope, cost, and timeline for the potential building project for C9 at NHJ, Center Grove, and Franklin Township in April.  I will also be forwarding the slides to Franklin Community.

-We are finalizing decisions for C9 programming to determine which ones will implement Next Level Programs of Study by this fall and which ones will wait a year and follow Perkins V.
