Chris Selland gave the financial report.
The volleyball standards have been replaced at a cost of $3,874.00 with a generous donation from the Athletic Boosters. The new standards have a lifetime guarantee. The Board and staff  thanked the Boosters for their ongoing support.
Superintendent Weber advised that our enrollment is at 186 students, up from 181 last May and we have welcomed a new junior student this past week.
Discussion was held also on the asbestos removal from the boiler system that was completed over the weekend and plans for the required boiler repairs to be completed in the next few days.  Superintendent Weber has researched several options to replace the boiler system, but costs were prohibitive so we will continue with the current system as long as parts and repairs are available.
We have had our first tutor day of the year and it went well.
A new co-op school song has been developed and will be used for co-op activities. The Woonsocket District will retain its original school song for all other non-co-op activities, graduation, etc.
The school and students helped welcome Mr. Bill Fagan, who has walked here from Woonsocket, Rhode Island over the past four years and an assembly was held upon his reaching town. We have received a $250.00 donation from Mr. Fagan and his wife and it will be used for physical education equipment.
Principal Paula Lynch updated the Board about fire prevention week and upcoming elementary activities.
Motion was made by Jason White, with a second by Todd Olinger, to approve the new Blackhawk co-op school song to be played at sporting events.  Motion carried.
Motion was made by Gary Steichen, with a second by Todd Olinger, to approve the asbestos abatement proposal from Gary Snow and Associates for $12,485.00. This must be done prior to the repair work needed as per the latest boiler inspection report. The repairs will be made as soon as possible. Motion carried.
Motion was made  by Jason White, with a second by Todd Olinger, to approve an operating transfer in the amount of $10,000.00 from the General Fund to Enterprise Fund  #53 (Pre-K and Drivers Education). The state has mandated that Pre-K and Drivers Education revenues and expenses be separated out from the General Fund, but these programs are not nor have they ever been financially self-sufficient.  Motion carried.
There being no further business to come before the Board, the October 8, 2012 regular meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was officially adjourned at 7:26 p.m. on a motion made by Todd Olinger, with a second by Jason White.  Motion carried.
