  • Call to order

Kim Thorpe called the public hearing to order at 6:02pm.

Bo Charlton gave a presentation on the District Budget with information on all of the funds and enrollment.

This covered a summary of the 2021-22 and projected 2022-23 budgets, revenues, and expenditures.

  • Questions and Comments

Erik asked about the Transportation Fund and revenues on the General Fund.

Bo and Brad explained why the District builds the expenditures to cover emergencies and that they are not required to have a balanced budget.  This allows for flexibility to cover unplanned expenditures without having to request a change to the budget from OSPI (Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction).




  • Call to order

Kim closed the public hearing and opened the regular meeting at 6:20pm.

  • Approval of Agenda

There were no changes to the agenda.

Barb moved and Jeff seconded a motion to approve the July 12, 2022 minutes as presented; motion carried.

  • Public Comments or Request on Non-agenda Items

Cheyenne Stocker came to talk to the board about her support for more security in the school buildings. She feels that it is important that the school looks at extra security and that person should be able to carry a weapon on campus. She also feels that teachers with concealed weapons permits should be allowed to carry at school.

Loren Stocker and Dan Gilpin also came to the meeting an echoed their support for having more security in the schools.



1st Readings

This would have the ability to change meeting nights from Tuesday night to Monday night.

Kim asked for a list of activities for Monday nights. Brad will look at activities and holidays on Mondays throughout the year.

The board would like to use more of a consent agenda to approve action items, saving time at meetings.

Something new in Food Service this year is that LCSD qualifies to use CEP (Community Eligibility Provision).  The district will distribute the Letter to Households and the Family Income Survey to all student households at the beginning the school year. The district needs families to complete the Family Income Survey as this allows for other benefits in the district.


If families complete the survey it will allow the schools and district to provide other services and waivers for students.  ASB (Associated Student Body) and CEP are different programs that Brad and Bo are working on qualifications to get the ASB card and other fees waived.  Qualification would be shown by using the F&R documents. There is no incentive to complete these forms for meals, but there are local benefits for students and families to complete.



  • Celebrations

The summer athletics are going strong with students practicing on several fields and working out in the weight room.  Coaches, kids, and families are all working around summer schedules.

  • Board Retreat – Discussion of Date and Time

Brad discussed some other dates for a board retreat with plans to meet for about 4 hours.  They are trying to schedule around athletics and events.  There was a decision of Thursday 9/22 Work session with no action at the meeting.



End of the 2021-22 school year enrollment was 1256 students in grades K-12.

Bo explained all of the financial reports and answered any questions.



  • District Security Officer

Brad shared that the Board has discussed if the school district should move forward in pursuing the option of posting a job for a District Security Officer.  It would be a key component that the person hired would have demonstration of building relationships with students and staff.  Kim discussed the budget balance of having a part-time SRO to having a full-time school district security officer.  The District would need to review the benefits of having a security officer and SRO at the same time.  Legal counsel suggests that a district not have teaching staff carry weapons.

Jeff moved and Stephanie seconded a motion to approve posting a position for a School Security and Safety Specialist for the 2022-23 school year; motion carried.
