Below is a summary of the Caldwell School District Board of Trustees July 8, 2019 meeting intended to provide information about board decisions in a timely manner. It is not the official record. The minutes, which are the official record of the meeting, are finalized the following month after approval by the Board.
The Board approved its agenda.

The Board approved the following items on its consent agenda.
Fee Hearing for Proposed Fee Increase for Non-Academic Activities for Non District Students. Chief Finance Officer April Burton reviewed information about an amended Dual Enrollment Policy 3030 that establishes fees for students not enrolled in the district to participate in extracurricular activities. It was noted that Idaho law mandates district’s provide dual enrollment for students living in its boundaries but attending non-district schools. The mandate is not funded. The hearing and fees were advertised twice in the newspaper as required by law. No patrons attended the hearing. The Board tabled the vote on enacting the fees to its Aug. 12 regular meeting.
