Chris Selland gave the financial report. As a point of clarification, the First National Bank involved in the paying agent issue from earlier where a $600 fee was charged for submitting a payment on the capital outlay certificates with the payment being delayed by the Trust Department, was First National Bank Sioux Falls, with no affiliation with the local First National Bank.

Also, the board was advised that K&D Busing out of Miller, the district’s contracted bus company, donated the three buses that traveled to Pierre with the seventh through 12th grades to meet with the Department of Transportation regarding the all-way stop sign at the three mile corner intersection.  Cost of the trip for all three buses would have exceeded $2,000.00, so the district greatly appreciates this donation and would also like to thank the Booster Club for providing the noon meal at Pizza Ranch for all the students, drivers and chaperones.

Superintendent Weber advised that Homecoming week went well with students exhibiting respect throughout the activities. Discussion was held on a joint homecoming date/game with all three districts in the football co-op and the other districts in the co-op will all have a discussion on this proposal.

Superintendent Weber also advised that the State has developed guidelines involving tiers of high school graduation requirements ranging from basic to the most advanced coursework.   This will most likely involve just a reference to the criteria met on high school transcripts and should not change any of the classes offered, electives, etc. The district is currently at work getting ready for the five year state accreditation review that will be completed the end of this month. 

There will still be several counseling sessions set up for students who may still feel the need for some assistance.

Plans are being developed for the track/practice football field project.

Lead Elementary Teacher Sarah Jensen updated the Board on elementary issues and advised that she was putting together an elementary newsletter to be sent home to parents.

There being no further business to come before the Board, the October 14th, 2019, regular board meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was adjourned at 5:51 p.m. on a motion by Neal Hiemstra with a second by Jodi Doering. Motion carried.
