1/30/2012Jurenka, MaryTo Gerry Peters - On March 26, 2011 you received an email from Scott Renaud requesting a private meeting with one or two board members a school district attorney, you, Tim and a developer who was interested in a land swap for the old middle school and Lincolnway sites. You emailed Tim and encouraged this meeting and Tim relented. When did this meeting take place? Who attended the meeting? What was the land swap?1/31/2012
1/30/2012Jurenka, MaryTo Gerry Peters - There were several emails about Stachbotrys (sp) "black" mold issues. What was the final resolution about its presence, the clean up and the factors that made conditions favorable for its growth. Were there final recommendations from the abatement company?1/31/2012
2/3/2012Jurenka, MaryThe agenda for Monday's (Feb 6) includes an action on Policy EDC, Authorizad Use of School-Owned Materials and Equipment. One of my concerns is the personal use of technology resources including but not limited to computers, ipads, district servers and so on. Technology resources, like all other district-owned property ae not to be used for personal reasons. While Policy EDC states that personal use of school-owned property is prohibited and violates Iowa Code, I do not see a plan in Policy EDCC that monitors technology use. How can the district be sure that its employees are complying with Iowa Code? I also don't see a plan that details enforcement of this policy. I am writing to ask you to pull Policy out of the actionportion of the agenda. Since this policy has a direct relationship to Iowa Code, my suggestion is that you detail plans to monitor the use of school-owned property and enforce the policy (and code) when it is violated through the personal use of these resources.

3/8/2012Johnson, Jon-ScottAt the Board meeting you made mention of 100 building lots near Mitchell School. I hope I am quoting you corectly. The City of Ames does not have on file or pending any information relating to development of that size near Mitchell. Was this in relationship with another area of Ames? When are we going to see the proposed budget cuts to make up the "1M shortfall"? Before the Bond issue I hope.3/9/2012
3/18/2012Johnson, Jon-ScottI know the Riggenberg development. It is on the far western boundary of the district. With NEW Miller, those kids would be less than 1.2 miles from Miller. The last map I saw from Structure clearly shows that this development is in the MILLER are not Mitchell. Budget cuts done yet???
