Superintendent Weber advised that Wolsey-Wessington would likely drop out of the wrestling co-op next year as they feel they have enough kids now to be independent. Wessington Springs and Woonsocket will continue with the joint wrestling program.  After a meeting with the three Athletic Directors, the football co-op will continue next year with Wessington Springs, Woonsocket and Sanborn Central and it was determined after reviewing the enrollment that the team would remain 9AA for the next two years and if enrollment is up after the two years, there is a two year grace period in existence before they would have to go 11-man.
The asbestos abatement and boiler repairs have been completed and the inspection approved.
Discussion was held on repairs/replacement of the balance of the roof that was not completed several years ago when the gymnasium roof was done. The foam roof system has worked very well on the flat gymnasium roof and the Board will consider budgeting to have the rest of the old roof done also.
The Board would like to thank the Staff and Students for honoring the veterans with the program on Monday and also the Veterans and Community Members that attended.
Principal Paula Lynch advised that conferences were very well attended and went very well.

It was moved by Gary Steichen, with a second by Darrin Uttecht, to approve a stipend of $300.00 (paid in December) to Jennifer Easton for extra-duty pay for the Christmas vocal concert as she will be a long-term substitute from now through December in the music program and will be in charge of preparing for the concert. Mrs. Easton is a certified music instructor. Motion carried.
Motion was made by Todd Olinger, with a second by Gary Steichen, to enter into executive session at 7:17 p.m. to discuss matters pertaining to personnel. Motion carried. The Board reconvened into regular session at 7:35 p.m.
There being no further business to come before the Board, the November 12th, 2012 regular meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was officially adjourned at 7:37 p.m. on a motion made by Gary Steichen, with a second by Todd Olinger. Motion carried.
