Stillwater School Board Business Meeting on February 20, 2024

The board approved start times for the 2025-26 school year as follows: Elementary schools at 7:45 a.m., Middle schools at 8:35 a.m., and High school at 8:45 a.m. A link to the Executive Summary Start Time Feedback is here. A link to the new start times is here

A 2024-25 budget update was provided. Resources are not in alignment with district priorities. $640,000 of Covid money is still available. There are specific requirements attached and the deadline to use the funds is September 2024.  There is instability of district leadership and unrealized budget assumptions. A budgeting framework is being used for best practices looking at return on investment and aligning priorities with the strategic plan. 

Updates were provided on renovations at Lily Lake Elementary, Afton-Lakeland Elementary, Rutherford Elementary and Stillwater Middle School. Lake Elmo was scheduled to vote on March 6 on the new elementary school site. 

Some school policies were reviewed with discussion of aligning them to the MN School Boards Association. 

The meeting was difficult to hear and the closed captioning was not sufficient. The board went into closed session for discussions of strategy on labor negotiations and disposition of property
