Chris Selland gave the financial report. The new general fund opt-out amount will be starting with January 2012 taxes and the reduction in Capital Outlay (from $2.50 per $1,000 of valuation to $2.00) and Special Education (from $1.40 per $1,000 of valuation to $1.00)  levies will also start in January 2012.
Superintendent Weber advised that the winter sports season with basketball and wrestling is underway and off to a good start. He discussed the Governors address as it pertained to education funding for FY2014, with expectations that the Legislature could approve funding increases based on current state statute. We would still be funded at levels per student several hundred dollars less than the 2010 per pupil allocation (due to the 6.6 percent cut in FY2012 and very minimal increase in FY2013).
The lunch program was discussed briefly with further discussion to be held at the January meeting.
Principal Paula Lynch advised that the Christmas craft fair had been organized and the Elementary Parent’s Club was planning their “Merry Mixing Day” for December 19th.
Motion was made by Darrin Uttecht, with a second by Jason White, to approve the purchase of new band percussion equipment for the band and the newly-formed drumline core at a cost of approximately $8,249.50. Motion carried.  The source of funding for the equipment consists of:  Federal reap grant to the district in the amount of $5,438.00, Band fundraising from the marching band concert/lasagna feed in the amount of $1,701 and a donation from the Booster Club of $1,110.50. Motion carried. The District and Mr. Kroeger would like to thank the public and Booster Club for their generous support of this project. The Sanborn Central Band will be purchasing a similar amount of equipment and the drumline will be a joint one between the two schools.
Motion was made by Jason White, with a second by Darrin Uttecht, to approve Neil Putnam as the District’s vote for Associated School Boards of South Dakota Southeastern Region Board of Directors.  Motion carried.
Due to a conflict with the 281 Girl’s Basketball Tournament on January 14th, the regular board meeting will be held on January 14th, 2012 at 5:00 p.m. This change was approved on a motion by Todd Olinger, with a second by Jason White.  Motion carried.
There being no further business to come before the Board, the December 10th, 2012 regular meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was officially adjourned at 7:35 p.m. on a motion made by Gary Steichen, with a second by Darrin Uttecht. Motion carried.
