Selective Insurance 40 Wantage Avenue Branchville, NJ 07826 Ms. Leidner moved for the adoption of the Finance and Insurance recommendations, reading Item #6, seconded by Mr. Small. During Board discussion, Ms. Leidner asked for an explanation of the Rollover and PERS reduction in Item #5. Mr. DeMarino explained PERS is based on a formula from the State on what the contributions should be, based on 1800 employees. He further explained the State asked districts to defer PERS payments to help out local municipalities. Mr. DeMarino stated he advised the Board and Dr. Crowe to make the full PERS payment. The State is still going to reduce the PERS payment. He stated the district lost the two state aid payments in June. He further stated the district would have incurred interest costs which is the reason why he advised the Board not to defer. He stated the money in the PERS line was moved. He explained that amount would have been the portion that we would have lost either way. Mr. DeMarino advised that the district will not incur any interest moving forward. He stated we would have paid interest starting with the 09-10 school year through 2012 at 8%. Ms. Leidner verified that the amount listed is the amount the state would have reduced our state aide. Mr. DeMarino stated she was correct. There were no comments or questions from the public. With all Board members voting in favor with the exception of Mr. Yuhasz who abstained on Item #1, Vendor #251900, the foregoing was adopted.

Mr. Yuhasz moved for the adoption of the Buildings and Grounds recommendations, seconded by Ms. Acquisto. During Board discussion, Mr. Yuhasz asked if Items #1 and #2 are using money from the sale of property. Mr. DeMarino responded, yes. He stated Item #1 addresses severe roof leaks at both Mawbey Street School #1 and Robert Mascenik School #26. He explained this is a bid that Spiezle Group, Inc., the district’s architect, put together. Mr. DeMarino stated the locks are part of the security program that the district is implementing. Mr. DeMarino stated because the bid prices were so competitive, he is able to purchase 792 locks instead of the 450 that were originally bid out. Mr. Yuhasz asked when work will begin on these projects. Mr. DeMarino stated both projects will begin shortly. Mr. Small asked how many schools the locks will be installed in. Mr. DeMarino stated based on the 792 locks purchased, approximately 22 schools will receive classroom locks. He explained the reason this project is necessary is due to a new law which mandates that teachers be able to lock the classroom doors from the inside with a key. He further explained that some of the schools were completed out of the regular budget. Mr. DeMarino stated the project will take awhile to complete, however all the locks will have been purchased for installation. Ms. Acquisto asked if the price includes installation. Mr. DeMarino stated the cost for installation is not included. He stated the cost, which should be approximately $25,000, will also be taken from money realized from the sale of property. There were no comments or questions from the public. With all Board members voting in favor, the foregoing was adopted.

370 June 29, 2009 Mr. Huber moved for the adoption of the Transportation recommendations, seconded by Mr. Garley. During Board discussion, Mr. Tamburello asked Madam Attorney to enlighten the Board on the letter from Wilentz regarding Item #2. Ms. Lordi asked Mr. DeMarino to explain, noting that he fully understands her comments in the letter. She stated Dr. Crowe, Mr. DeMarino and her had a lengthy conversation earlier in the day regarding this item. Mr. DeMarino thanked the Board attorneys for the quick turn around time of bids that were sent to them for review. He stated in the specifications that were written, some of the wording in the specs from the Board indicated that we were not looking for substitutions. He explained all the bids submitted had substitutions. Mr. DeMarino stated he conferred with Jonathan Triebwasser and Kenny Galvach, the district mechanic, regarding the substitutions in the low bid and was advised by them that the substitutions were not material enough to reject them. Mr. DeMarino stated the Board attorney made it very clear that the bid needed to be cleaned up as far as the language. He stated due to the fact that the district is using sale of property money which expires tomorrow, he is confident that after speaking with Ken Galvach, that the exceptions that the low bidder put in are acceptable to us and still meet the Department of Transportation code. Ms. Lordi clarified that any concerns the district had concerning the substance of the bid were not important based on Mr. DeMarino’s research and discussions with his staff. Mr. Tamburello commended all parties for expediting this matter and moving forward with an award. There were no comments or questions from the public. With all Board members voting in favor, the foregoing was adopted.

Ms. Rotella stated the district assures that all students have the opportunity to take the PSAT’s which helps them to understand their potential which allows them to get into college. Ms. Rotella stated the program is offered free of charge to all 10th and 11th grade students. She stated it helps the district realign its curriculum. It also indicates if a student should be placed in Advanced Placement classes. Ms. Rotella stated it helps the students be more successful in high school with a more rigorous schedule, enabling them to get into college. Mr. Tamburello verified that this program is free to all district students. Ms. Rotella stated it is. Mr. Tamburello asked Ms. Rotella to elaborate on Item #7 as well. Ms. Rotella stated Item #7 is a partnership with Middlesex County College which will allow sophomores to take pre-calculus over the summer months. She stated students will receive college credits for this class. Ms. Rotella explained that Middlesex County College received a grant which will enable the first 10 students qualified to register at no cost. She stated students registering after that will be pay only $100 for the course. Mr. Tamburello clarified that this course will be available to all high school sophomores to which Ms. Rotella responded affirmatively. Mr. Tamburello stated he hopes the students take advantage of this opportunity. Ms. Acquisto asked how many students have already signed up for the course. Ms. Rotella stated, the last time she checked, 15 students had signed up. Mr. Molnar stated courses at Middlesex County College were well over $100 per credit when he attended in 2001. Mr. Molnar encouraged parents to take advantage of these courses. Ms. Rotella stated a lot of students are not strong in math so this is a perfect opportunity for them. She further stated since the course is a requirement for several colleges and offers college credit, the students then become exempt from taking the course again. There were no comments or questions from the public. With all Board members voting in favor, the foregoing was adopted. The Technology Committee, on the recommendation of the Superintendent of Schools and the Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction, presented the following: 1.

That the Board of Education approve the purchase of 77 computer workstations for JFK High School and Colonia High School; batteries and chargers for 16 elementary schools at a cost of $182,854.28 to Dell, Inc., Attn: Ed Crumley, One Dell Way, Round Rock, TX 78682 – State Contract #A-70256-WSCA/NASPO – WSCA Contract Code N326AAH.

Mr. Miloscia moved for the adoption of the Technology recommendations, seconded by Mr. Small. During Board discussion Ms. Leidner asked if Item #2 is for two rooms, one at Avenel Middle and one at Iselin Middle which will be utilized strictly as computer rooms. Ms. Rotella stated yes, in both cases. Ms. Leidner asked if the district has the equipment already purchased. Ms. Rotella stated they are in the process of acquiring the equipment and she is working with the schools directly. She stated Mr. Rumage is hopeful to eventually make a multi media room. There were no comments from the public. With all Board members voting in favor, the foregoing was adopted. Board Attorney, Viola Lordi, had nothing to bring before the Board for open session. Under "Old Business," Mr. Yuhasz commended the Buildings and Grounds department for the appearance of the grounds at the high school graduations. He stated he was given the opportunity to give the commencement speech at Colonia High School. Mr. Yuhasz congratulated the graduating seniors, Mr. McLaughlin and the teachers on their accomplishments. Mr. Molnar thanked Mr. D’Orsi and the Buildings and Grounds department, commenting that there is a tremendous amount of work that goes into getting all three high schools ready for graduation. Mr. Molnar stated the Buildings and Grounds department sets up for six graduation ceremonies, three indoor and three outdoor. Mr. Molnar thanked the Board members and the Administration for their attendance at the graduation ceremonies. He congratulated the graduating seniors as well as all the students in the district. Under “New Business," Mr. Tamburello highlighted the Princeton Review which was approved at the previous month’s meeting and the PSAT training and pre-calculus program approved earlier tonight, noting this will save parents a tremendous amount of money. Mr. Tamburello stated he is hopeful that all high school families will consider enrolling their children into these programs. Mr. Tamburello commended everyone who worked on bringing these programs into the district. Mr. Miloscia commented on the upcoming performance of Godspell by the Woodbridge Community Youth Players. Mr. Molnar announced the times of the performances which will take place at School #21. The Board President opened the meeting to the public. During this portion, D. Davidson, Fords, gave an update on the PACE parent upcoming fundraiser. P. Ballotta, Woodbridge, congratulated Ms. Leidner on her appointment to the New Jersey School Boards Legislative Committee. Mr. Ballotta asked if the district has any additional information regarding the balance of the bond money. Mr. DeMarino stated the district received $2,077,000 on June 4th and an additional $289,947 on June 12th. He stated the district is still owed approximately $3,000,000 which will hopefully be received by November in order to pay off the short term note. Mr. Ballotta commented on the projects from the sale of property money. He asked if all the money was used. Mr. DeMarino stated he used all but $16,000 for various projects. Mr. Small then presented to the Board for its consideration, a resolution for a Closed Session to discuss subjects exempted from the public portion of the meeting. The discussion to be held in Closed Session will be about personnel matters which include: resignations; extension of sympathy; retirements; leaves of absences; transfers, and appointments of certified and non-certified staff; home instructors, After-School Child Care Program, coaches; summer appointments which include guidance, speech evaluations, professional development, curriculum committees, extended school year, bus drivers and bus aides; changes in extra-curricular, professional development; termination of employee suspension; salary adjustments; approval of substitutes as follows: principals, teachers, school aides, secretarial, cafeteria, paraprofessional, custodial, bus drivers, bus attendants, and summer typists. There will also be discussion on employee discipline. Any information regarding the Closed Session discussion will be released to the public when the reasons for discussing these matters in Closed Session no longer exist.
