— The city of Janesville is proposing to transfer ownership of Monterey Stadium to the Janesville School District.

The district has leased the stadium from the city since 1985, when the city and district became separate fiscal entities.


Over the years, the district has been in charge of making improvements to the facility in Monterey Park. Recently, the city and district split the cost of building a ramp to make the concrete grandstand accessible to people with handicaps.


The city recently approached the district, asking if there is interest in transferring ownership, according to recent memo to Superintendent Tom Evert from Doug Bunton, director of business services.


The memo makes no mention whether money or other consideration would be involved in the deal.


The current lease expires in 2023.


The board will discuss the possible transfer when its buildings and grounds/finance committee meets at 6:15 p.m. Tuesday at the Educational Services Center, 527 S. Franklin St. The topic is also on the agenda when the full board meets at 7 p.m.


Also on the agenda:


n Discussion of the process for selecting a new superintendent, who would take over after Tom Evert retires next June 30. The discussion will begin in the personnel committee, which meets at 6:35 p.m., and continue at the board meeting at 7.


n A presentation on the results of surveys of staff and parents, which will be used to rate principals and other administrators as part of the new Studer improvement process.


n The first reading of a board policy on locker-room privacy.
