Chris Selland gave the financial report. The financial software upgrade has been installed and data conversion completed. An elliptical machine has been purchased for $500.00 for the weight room from Federal Surplus Property in Huron and the National  Honor Society and Student Council have each contributed $100.00 towards the purchase. The Board thanks these two organizations for their contribution.
Superintendent Weber advised that there was a proposal to the Wolsey-Wessington School that the co-op wrestling costs be shared equally three ways (Woonsocket, Wolsey-Wessington and Wessington Springs).
Superintendent Weber advised that homecoming activities have been planned for the week.
Discussion was held also on a request from a daycare provider to have the bus stop at her residence as she had recently moved from outside city limits to town. It was decided that the mini-bus would be able to stop at the daycare residence in the morning after the shorter route and that the daycare centers would all be contacted to provide the same service if requested.
Bleachers for the football field were discussed with the conclusion that the cost at this time would be prohibitive when there normally is only one home game a year scheduled. The new food service program has been implemented successfully and software will be ordered to help facilitate the new federal regulations and the billing transactions.
Principal Paula Lynch updated the Board about the recent test score data provided by the State and the Board and Staff would like to congratulate the Faculty and Students on their performance. She also shared a brochure that she has completed over the summer that has information helpful for new students/families to the District.
Motion was made by Jason White, with a second by Gary Steichen, to approve Rebecca Foos as part-time Special Education Aide at a salary of $2,955,00 per year  (based on 1.5 hours per day)  pro-rated for this year.  Rebecca is certified as a Highly Qualified Aid.  Motion carried.
There being no further business to come before the Board, the September 10, 2012 regular meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was officially adjourned at 7:38 p.m. on a motion made by Gary Steichen, with a second by Todd Olinger. Motion carried.
