Mr. Siemsen reported on the following:

• Coating of the school’s roof has been going along, with some time interruptions due to weather. It should be completed soon. 

• All the end of school year items are being finished up.

• Summer school has begun for all grades. There are two high school students and 27 elementary students. This runs through June. 

• Waxing of the floors and other cleaning has been going well. 

• Summer sports activities (open gyms and camps) are in full swing. 

• An all-school assembly has been scheduled for August 29. Corey Greenwood is the presenter. There are two sessions, elementary, rooted in kindness and respect and middle school/high school, suicide prevention/mental health/school culture. Hopefully, these will be interesting and worthwhile. 

• The conference was discussed (ASBSD Convention in August – who can attend). 

• July board meeting alternate date discussion (leaving it at July 20th for the moment, may change).   

Mrs. Vermeulen provided the board with information on the comprehensive needs assessment and the plan developed by her group (Jennifer Larson, Susan Farrell-Poncelet, Chayna Jones and Connie Vermeulen). The three goals will be worked on district wide and accomplished over the course of several years.    

Discussion Items: 

• The Board discussed the proposal options from Direct Digital Controls for maintenance and operations quotes as well as system upgrades. They will look into this further and likely have a motion for action in July. 

• The rules pertaining to a board member being paid for work within the district was discussed (amount paid cannot exceed $5,000 in a calendar year). 

• The Board will grant a longevity bonus to all employees (currently just teaching staff receives this bonus after five consecutive years in the district), that will begin in the 2022-2023 year.
