1. Senior Leadership Team Presentation – Justin Maillet
Mr. Maillet presented about the district-wide Facilities Survey that was conducted back in January 2019. The survey had 858 respondents this year compared to 60 respondents the year prior. Feedback was solicited via Survey Monkey sent by mass email to all users in the registration software system and signage in the buildings. Paper copies were available as well. The Board appreciated the data collected and the plans for fine-tuning future surveys and the follow-up that happened with customers who asked for response or who asked questions.
2. Request for 2018 Audit Extension – Jim Reasor
Mr. Reasor updated the Board on the progress of our State-required annual audit. This is typically due by July 31 every year. The District has some additional work to do and information to provide, so we submitted a request to the State for a 30-day extension. The Board stated they hope that in the future, no extensions will be necessary as this is a point of pride for the District.
There was none.
