Call to Order

The meeting was called to order with Members Bryan Winkels, Greg Frisk, Chad Longbella and Brad Anderson present (comprising a quorum). Also attending: Supt. Tappe; Business Services, Herdegen; Principals Johnson, Schmidt and Regan; Communications & Marketing, Walz; Curriculum Coordinator, Ferdon; Activities, Boran; Staples World Managing Editor, Anderson; several community and staff members and Recording Secretary, Madson.  The Pledge of Allegiance was recited. 

Motion by Anderson, seconded by Frisk, to adopt the agenda. MC 

Continuous Improvement Plan (CIP)

Deb Ferdon gave an overview of how the planning process has advanced. Over 50 people, including administration, staff, community members and students have been involved. Ferdon and Walz have taken information from those sessions and created a Continuous Improvement Plan document. This document is still in the draft stage and Board members were asked to review and give feedback.

The document will be brought back to the Board  Feb. 18 for approval. Following approval, a press release will go out and the plan will be circulated to the community. Action plans will be written and the plan will be reviewed annually. 

The CIP creates an intentional response to community concerns and needs and builds a framework of accountability for the district. 

Athletics

Blake Boran gave the Board an update on Girls Swimming participation this past season. 

We are currently in a cooperative agreement with Verndale; SM had 10 swimmers and Verndale had five (5). The majority of the swimmers were in Jr Hi. This created difficulties in scheduling meets as there are not enough participants to compete in all events. The number of meets had already been reduced for the fall 2019 season.

Financially, it cost about $1,000 per participant this year (which does not include pool costs). This season the pool was $120 per hour for 247 hours. Next year would see a significant jump in program costs with the addition of pool rental fees. 

Boran advised the Board that the district should look at other options. 

The Board will be asked to make a decision regarding the Girls Swimming Program at the March 23 meeting. 

Adjournment
