All Superintendents stated that they were fine with waiting for their 2nd half of funding until funds were available and understood that the second half of funds could possibly be reduced to 75% with the exception of the following: 
    • Hillside is not requesting ANY funds and can wait for total pay out
    • Seligman requested total funds to be paid out in the amount of $4,720.60
    • Skull Valley requested the release of the rest of available funds in the amount of $670.07
    • Beaver Creek and YASD will collect their first half and wait for the second half 
    • Stephanie Miller made a motion to pay out the total for Seligman in the amount of $4,720.60 and Skull Valley in the amount of $670.07; Kellie Burns seconded the motion; it was unanimously approved 5/0 by Danny Brown, Dennis Dearden, Stephanie Miller, Mardi Read and Kellie Burns 
  2. Determine Allocation of $342,200 to Districts for Technology – The board agreed since all schools are okay with waiting they will just hold the remaining funds with the intent that ALL districts will get paid out their remaining funds once funding is available.
