Chris Selland gave the financial report and advised that there will be two board member terms up in June of 2021 – Jason White and Todd Olinger.

Discussion was also held on the federally mandated Family First Coronavirus Relief Act that provided for up to 80 hours (one-time) of COVID-related leave for employees. The federal mandate expired on December 31, 2020, and each school district has now to decide whether to continue the leave, modify the leave, or discontinue it.

Maintenance bills for the Governors building were also discussed. 

Superintendent Weber informed the Board that he did have a recommendation for the part-time custodian position.

Also, a discussion was held regarding the mask requirement, with no changes in the policy at this time. The district currently has no known positive cases (staff or students). 

Discussion was held on Superintendent Weber possibly being appointed to the Sanborn County Commission.

Lead Teacher Sarah Jensen updated the Board on Elementary issues.  

On a motion made by Todd Olinger, with a second by Lisa Snedeker, the Board set the annual school board election for April 13, 2021. Motion carried.

On a motion by Lisa Snedeker, with a second by Todd Olinger, the Board approved Spens Schlicht as a Volunteer Assistant Boys Basketball Coach. Motion carried.

It was moved by Todd Olinger, with a second by Neal Hiemstra, to approve Nichole Lamb as Part-Time Custodian at a wage of $13.90 per hour (no benefits) on a probationary basis. Motion carried.  

On a motion by Lisa Snedeker, with a second by Todd Olinger, the board approved extending the one-time 80-hour COVID-leave that expired on December 31, 2020 until the end of the school year. Employees will be entitled to a one-time limit of 80- hours of leave for the 2020-21 school year that cover a COVID-related absence without drawing that leave from their regular accrued sick or personal leave. Motion carried.

Discussion was held on the demolition of the Goergen house and tree removal sometime after the closing date.

There being no further business to come before the Board, the January 11th, 2021, regular board meeting of the Woonsocket Board of Education was adjourned at 5:43 p.m. on a motion by Neal Hiemstra, with a second by Todd Olinger. Motion carried.
