- Judith Enright – Future Search
James Anastasio, Superintendent, introduced Judith Enright.

Ms. Enright distributed information to board members and explained the process and answered questions.
Motion by April Cusick to move forward to the board the recommendation to do a Future Search for the Augusta School Department in the fall of 2016. Second by Edward Hastings, so moved 3–0.
- Donation Process for ASD
The committee discussed the criteria for donations and forming an ad hoc committee to pursue the creation of a non-profit. Laura Hamilton said there needs to be an alumni association where we’re soliciting and making known that people can make donations or provisions to create scholarships. Currently, there’s no active program like that. Kim Martin suggested we establish a subcommittee for looking into a non-profit.
Motion by Edward Hastings to move forward to the board the recommendation to create an ad hoc committee to pursue the creation of a non-profit and criteria for donations. Second by April Cusick, so moved 3-0.
