Chris Selland gave the financial report and advised that the  group health insurance meeting for the school pool will be held on March 23 in Huron and we will have more information after the meeting.
Superintendent Weber updated the Board on the new funding formula with several issues yet to be clarified by the State. Also, he will proceed with an application to the SDHSAA to form a co-op with Sanborn Central in the sport of cross-country.  This would be the last sport to co-op for the Woonsocket District with the goal of increasing participation in the program.
A plan is in place to house the Ag/FFA programs at the Sanborn Central School next year with some details yet to be worked out with the goal of keeping the Ag/FFA programs viable for both districts.
Darin Schmiedt will assume the Industrial Technology position and will work towards certification and will be working with Mr. VanDenHemel this spring.
The District will have to find a new consortium to process the Federal Perkins grant money for technical education as Mid-Central Co-op will no longer be handling the Perkins program for area districts.
The Food Service inspection received a 98 percent rating out of possible 100 percent, and lastly, congratulations go out to the Girl’s Basketball Team, coaches, student managers, statisticians, and cheerleaders for the manner in which they represented our Districts, and thanks to the Boosters, students and fans for all their support during the tournament.
The meeting with the Wessington Springs District went well with no immediate plans for expanding the athletic co-op, but keeping the door open for future opportunities for sharing services and costs.
Principal Paula Lynch advised that testing (Smarter Balance and Dakota Step) will begin the end of March.
Also, the WEPC Bingo was a great success raising the most money yet (approx. $6,500.00), and thanks go out to all who donated prizes, attended or helped in any way.  Principal Lynch also advised that the elementary students have obtained recycle boxes for cans and are expanding their recycling project. Spring field trips are being planned.
On a motion by Gary Steichen,  seconded by Todd Olinger, the Board approved the following non-certified contracts for 2016-2017:  Julie Bebout, Rebecca Hinker, Trent Clayton, Cathy Hegg, Pat Carsrud, Emily Olson, Luci Grassel and Susan Sterna.  Motion carried.

It was moved by Gary Steichen with a second by Lisa Snedeker to approve the surplus/salvage of 34 boys basketball uniforms.  The uniforms will be sold for $20.00 each piece ($40.00 for one complete uniform) and the proceeds will be shared with Sanborn Central for those that are sold. New Boys uniforms will be purchased for next year as they are up for the five year rotation.  Motion carried.
On a motion by Todd Olinger with a second by Gary Steichen, the Board approved the resignation of Jedd Schlicht as Asst. Track Coach (personal reasons) with Emily Olson to be his replacement at a salary of $1,700.00.  Motion carried. Jedd may be serving at times in a volunteer capacity with the track program.
There being no further business to come before the Board, the March 14th, 2016 regular board meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was adjourned at 6:50 p.m. on a motion by Gary Steichen with a second by Todd Olinger. Motion carried.
