Action Items

Agenda Item 7.0

Adoption of Budget: Fiscal Year 2018/19 – 7.01

The board approved adoption of CCSD59’s 2018-19 budget.

Approval of the Intergovernmental Agreement between CCSD59 and the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago For After School Care Agreement – 7.02
CCSD59 and its various park districts have had agreements in place to provide before and after school recreation programs for CCSD59 families for elementary students. Junior high students are not eligible to participate in the park district’s elementary before and after school program. In an effort to provide services for junior high students, the District contacted the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago. The YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago will be able to provide fee-based after school care for all CCSD59 students including junior high students and students with special needs.

The board approved the intergovernmental agreement between the YMCA of Metropolitan Chicago and CCSD59. Following this approval, the YMCA board will take action to approve. Once approved, the agreement will be effective immediately until June 30, 2019.

Approval of the Educator Prep Memo of Understanding Between District 214 and CCSD59 – 7.03
The CCSD59 Board of Education and the District 214 Board of Education are working together to provide an Educator Prep Program for secondary students who are aspiring teachers in order to support the development of a local, diverse, high quality pipeline of future educators. A variety of other local districts are also expected to participate in the program.

The board approved the memorandum of understanding, which represents a formal agreement between the CCSD59 Board of Education and the District 214 Board of Education. The memorandum of understanding will be effective with the 2018-19 academic year and is subject to renewal annually on a fiscal year (July 1 – June 30) basis.

Midas Education, LLC Agreement – 7.04
CCSD59 is in the process of building a comprehensive and timely system of communicating learning that is meaningful for all parents, students, and staff and encompasses our district beliefs, direction, and whole child approach. As part of this effort, the district explored tools that will help make this system of communicating an interactive and easily accessible experience. CCSD59 will partner with MIDAS Education, LLC, to create this tool. The district will have three years to develop system components with no additional charge, and the district will have the option to extend the agreement annually for the next ten years.

The board approved the proposed contract between CCSD59 and MIDAS.
