The Paradise Unified School District will host a special meeting on Monday afternoon and the trustees will consider a range of issues.
District trustees will be asked to approve a legal services agreement between the district and the law firm of Gutierrez Perry and Villarreal.
The trustees will also be asked to approve a memorandum of understanding with the Butte County Education Office to participate in the school education and safety program at Cedarwood Elementary.
The new memo is a result of state legislators approving an increase in student daily reimbursement rates from $8.88 to $10.18.
According to a letter from the Education Office, the increase in reimbursement is due to an increase in the minimum wage.
According to the letter, each school site must provide and fund at least 33% cash or in-kind local matching funds from the school district, government agencies, community organizations or the private sector for every dollar spent.
The trustees were also asked to approve the job description for RTI speech support staff.
Trustees will also be asked to approve an agreement that allows the school district to use the Paradise Recreation and Park District’s swimming pools from August 16, 2021 to October 31, 2022.
The agreement will specify that the two districts share the pool’s operating expenses and that PRPD will be responsible for all remaining ownership and operating costs of the pool.
PUSD’s daily schedule for pool use is subject to prior approval of PRPD.
The school district will pay PRPD $4 per hour for the actual use of the pool, rent the swimming pool and the school district will pay a percentage of the PG&E fee equivalent to the school district’s actual use of the pool for the same amount of time. The time is divided by the normal time. The period of time during which the pool is generally open.
However, the total cost to the school district for the use of the pool will not exceed $6,000.
