Monica Ripplinger, President of Student council, reported the Spring Fling (MORP week) activities. Student council members for 2022-2023 will be announced soon. Mr. Joe Hegland reported on the 6 different initiatives in the strategic plan that drives the professional development plan for the school. Mr. Hegland reported on how the professional development helps teachers in their instructional writing and coaching. Cognia engagement review has been changed to 5 years Jamestown’s is extended until June 2025. A state mandate for K-3 teachers and principals are required to do 3 days of training on the foundations of reading. There is training in August and then a fall session for those who cannot attend. SEEC is developing online trainings for K-3 non reading teachers. Superintendent Lech reported on personnel changes. Gussner had a larger Kindergarten class several years ago, therefore 3 sections were made to accommodate the student need. Those students are now progressed to the next grade therefore kindergarten can be moved back to 2 sections. The teacher would transfer to an open position. Superintendent Lech reported there are 2 release of contracts on the agenda. He recommends release due the timeline to fill those positions. He also is looking at administrator staff sharing possibilities. Superintendent Lech reported meeting with SEEC regarding the after school program changes. This program is federally funded and had regulation changes. More schools are asking for funding which means less funds per pupil. Superintendent Lech is looking at providing services to more buildings for a shorter length of time which would impact more students. The other option is to have less program hours of service. Dr. Lech is thankful for SEEC working with us to figure what is the best solution. Superintendent Lech reported on the capital projects update. Superintendent Lech reported he had conversations with Heidi Budeau, Special Education Director, regarding a Behavioral Health Grant. The funds with this grant could be used to work with the Village to expand coverage form 1 day to 2 or 3 days per week to assist the 43 students on a waiting list. This also assumes that the Village is able to accommodate the additional workload with existing staffing. Superintendent Lech reported the Wellness policy is being updated and has a descriptor code change according to NDSBA. The policy has added a building level assessment. The wellness committee will review the assessments for any gaps at a specific building or as a district. Mrs. Nelson moved, seconded by Mr. Haut to approve the Capital Project Plan revisions and summer projects. Superintendent Lech reported small items were grouped together and listed in the District.
