    1. Occured on May 17, 2021
    2. Presidio was out of compliance in a few areas
      1. Open Meeting Law
        1. The Charter Holder has modified the online posting of board meeting notices to reflect the provisions of A.R.S §38-431.02(A)(1)
        2. The Charter Holder has modified the meeting minutes to ensure compliance with all provisions of A.R.S §38-431.01(B), (C), (D) and -431.03(B). 
      2. Enrollment Policies
        1. The issues listed in Appendix F regarding Presidio School’s Enrollment and Attendance policies were  addressed.  All changes to the requested documents were highlighted in yellow.  Portions of the documents that will be removed have also been highlighted in yellow and “stricken” (black lines through the phrases), but left in the document for reference for the Presidio Board of Directors.
      3. Teacher Salary Posting
        1. The Teacher Salary Posting originally posted on the website was for FY2020.  It has since been rectified to show the Average Teacher Salary for FY2021.  Presidio will post the Average Teacher Salary for FY2022 after the Board approves the budget for FY2022.
      4. Recess Requirements
        1. The 2020/2021 SY Master Schedule included recess opportunities for all grade levels, but it was not clear that lower elementary grade levels (grades K-2) received two recesses.  The Master Schedule was updated to more clearly indicate two recesses.
