NwOESC Governing Board Approves Numerous Personnel Decisions

The following actions were taken by the Northwest Ohio Educational Service Center Governing Board at their regular meeting held May 26, 2020 via remote meeting.

The meeting was called to order at 6:30 p.m. by President Nona Rupp.

REPORTS:

OSBA LEGISLATIVE LIAISON: Mr. Brian Baker share the Senate passed SB 248, which extends a moratorium on the requirement for storm shelters to be constructed for new school construction projects.  The House Primary and Secondary Education Committee accepted HB 239 which revises high school state testing requirements and requires each school district to form a working group to evaluate the amount of time students spend on testing. The revised version now provides an opt-out from the ACT or SAT but maintains all high school end-of-course exams. The House Criminal Justice Committee held a third hearing on HB 83, which increases the penalties for the offense of failing to stop for a stopped school bus and allows images captured by a camera installed on a school bus to be used as corroborating evidence for such offense. The committee also passed SB 10, which increases the penalty for theft in office when the value of stolen property or services is $150,000 or more. The House Finance Committee accepted a substitute version of HB 13, which establishes the residential broadband expansion program. The Office of Educator Licensure is now accepting applications for the one-year temporary license. To qualify for a one-year temporary license, an applicant must meet all qualifications for an educator license offered by the Ohio Department of Education other than passage of the required examination(s). All one-year temporary licenses will be effective for the 2020-2021 school year and are non-renewable.

CFO/TREASURER:  Homer Hendricks shared information on the potential change from Generally Accepted Accounting Principles (GAAP) financial reporting to cash basis, or OCBOA beginning with this year’s fiscal year-end reporting.  Mr. Hendricks has reviewed data from other districts and ESCs along with advantages and disadvantages of each reporting system. Mr. Hendricks has established periodic Zoom meetings with the area treasurers to discuss current issues and replace our regular monthly breakfast meetings. Most treasurers have been participating and discussions have focused on ODE updates, five-year forecasts, economic trends, and funding issues including the federal CARES Act. These meetings will continue to be offered until we can begin meeting in person again as new topics seem to show up frequently.  Districts are have continued to return their service agreements for 2020-21 with the remainder on this month’s agenda and are being loaded into ODE’s online portal.  The portal requires both NwOESC and local district approval before June 15 to begin their state foundation deductions starting in July.  All involved appreciate this process, as it is very easy to follow the approvals and ensure all approvals occur on time.

Final program costs are being completed for distribution to the districts in early June.  It is our first time using the new PRESIS system to generate the student lists for our staff and district reviews before finalizing the program costs. The lists are easy to navigate and we have worked with the developer to address outstanding issues affecting the reports.   They have been very responsive to those changes.

DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL EDUCATION: Jill Gilliland shared an update on early childhood screenings.  They will take place at the NWOESC during the first two weeks of June, with social distancing and sanitizing in place.  We hope to see up to 300 children at screenings.  Our team will be learning more about the possibility of conducting evaluations via online tools and will need to determine if ETRs can be completed remotely in the future if needed.  End of the year activities continue, including several online meetings with various groups.

DIRECTOR OF CURRICULUM, INSTRUCTION, & PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT: Kris Dobbelaere shared that the Curriculum Team held virtual Zoom meetings with teachers and received feedback regarding support that is needed in the event that schools do not open as normal next school year. Our team will use this feedback to provide support to districts in planning for next year.  NwOESC Consultants, Josh Clark, Katie Jimenez and Kallie Gensler will be facilitating training for OTES (Ohio Teacher Evaluation System) 2.0 in June. Districts who are implementing the new system will be able to take this training virtually.  We are planning for flexibility in professional development for the upcoming school year within the framework put forth by ODE.

DIRECTOR OF TECHNOLOGY:  Chad Rex reported that the last Technology Leaders network meeting of the year was Friday, May 22nd. The technology leaders decided to meet every two weeks during the summer to learn from and support each other as they prepare for the next school year. Mr. Rex was involved in the interviews for the Maintenance position and he participated in HVAC meetings. Mr. Rex continued to support Fulton County Job Fairs, however these have come to an end this month. Mr. Rex coordinated meetings with Remind, worked on an agreement, and submitted a requisition for a district account. This will provide the IEC with the ability to have one and two way communications with parents and students. Mr. Rex has been researching cleaning & sanitization supplies and submitted requisitions for masks and sanitizer for the main office and the IEC along with ongoing refills. This will be a focus of his work with the new maintenance technician. Mr. Rex also shared that he and Corey are in the final stages of our server migration project. Mr. Rex communicated to all NWOESC staff that they need to move any files that need protected by our backup system to be placed into their Google Drive. Mr. Rex also notified staff that Zoom account requests for the coming year should be made by June 30th.

SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT: Kerri Weir provided an update on several items. An Overview of NwOESC Services in Response to COVID-19 was shared.  The Ohio Department of Education is working on a guidance document to assist districts in the reset and restart of the coming school year given the current public health crisis.  As more information is released, schools will collaborate and continue to develop plans for the 2020-21 school year.

The Bryan City Superintendent Search has concluded with Mr. Mark Rairigh selected as the new leader of the district. NwOESC event planning for the 2020-21 School Year is underway. Bus and van driver training will take place on Monday, August 3, 2020 from 8:00 – 12:00 via virtual training. Registration is underway. New Staff Orientation is tentatively set for Tuesday, August 4, 2020 to familiarize new staff with our mission, vision and departmental processes. The Administrators’ Conference set for Friday, August 7, 2020 and the Annual Fall Staff Meeting set for Tuesday, August 11, 2020 are being reviewed for content and delivery given the current situation.  Focusing on what is “essential” is the key task the Administrative Team is tackling as plans are developed.Over the next few months, several key items will be reviewed in preparation for the 2020-21 school year.

Items include various handbooks, Public School Works Training Plan, the Employee Evaluation Management System, and updates to informational documents, our website and other social media platforms. Our administrative staff and directors have been working to finish pilot year OTES 2.0 staff evaluations as able and inputting information into the state data collection system – eTPES.  This year, several staff will be “exempt” due to COVID-19, which will place them into the evaluation cycle for 2020-21 at the same status they had at the beginning of 2019-20.  Nineteen (19) OTES 2.0 evaluations were completed during the 2019-20 school year, one (1) staff exempt due to retirement, one (1) staff exempt due to resident educator status, and the remainder of staff exempt due to COVID-19. NwOESC will implement OTES 2.0, which incorporates both performance and high quality student data measures, effective with the 2020-21 school year.  The NwOESC OTES 2.0 Policy is in the development stage and will be brought to the board later this summer for consideration.

NwOESC administrative staff are planning to recognize retirees this year by hand delivering their certificates of appreciation and retirement recognition gifts in early June.  2019-20 retirees include Mary Brandon, Gifted Education Teacher; Janet Lembach, Job Trainer/Paraprofessional; Stuart Schnitkey, Building Maintenance Tech; Brenda Sonnenberg, Paraprofessional; Cindy Suffel, Paraprofessional; Rhonda VonDeylen, Paraprofessional; and Sandra Wilhelm, Paraprofessional. Mr. Josh Clark has been selected as the Director of Curriculum, Instruction, & Professional Development with the departure later this summer of Kris Dobbelaere.  Josh has experience teaching, as a principal, and most recently as an Educational Consultant for the NwOESC. Mr. Larry Davis has been selected as Building Maintenance Technician, with the coming retirement of Stu Schnitkey. Larry has several years’ maintenance experience in both industrial and public sector settings, and will begin in early June.

Entered into Executive Session for the purpose of investigation of charges or complaints against a public employee, official, licensee, or student and for the purpose of consideration of the appointment, employment, dismissal, discipline, promotion, demotion, or compensation of a public employee or official. No action was taken.

As all of the business of the evening was complete the meeting adjourned at 7:51 p.m. The next meeting is scheduled to take place on Wednesday, June 23, 2020 at 6:30 p.m. at the Northwest Ohio Educational Service Center, 205 Nolan Parkway, Archbold, OH.
