Sarah Swenson gave the financial report.

Mr. Weber updated that there is another grant available that the school will be applying for – it will assist in purchasing welders, an auto lift, and other equipment for the new CTE shop. The seventh through 12th grade students attended a distracted driver assembly this past Monday. It was a great message for students and staff to hear. Mr. Weber updated that wall murals have been ordered and will hopefully be hung by Christmas. This is part of the branding project for the school. 

Mr. Bruce updated that the lunch program and bus routes are going very well. 

Mrs. King updated that she has two new IEPs and a new 504 plan. Her team has been working hard to provide services to all students. 

Mr. Rodriguez updated that the school is officially signed up for the E-Sports pilot season. There are 28 schools in South Dakota participating. He also updated that 75 percent of elementary students have increased their reading fluency since they have started “flight school.” They are seeing great improvements with the students reading. 

Mrs. Jensen updated that this week (Nov. 13-17) is American Education Week. The students will be doing different activities throughout the week. Students were also sent home a book – each student the same – to get families involved with reading.

Chris Brockevelt from Koch-Hazard Architects was also present, and he presented the Board with floor plans for the new CTE Building. Brockevelt anticipates more finalized plans by December, and then the school can move forward with the bidding process.

Motion was made by Becca Grassel, seconded by Lisa Snedeker, to approve to hire Spens Schlicht as Assistant Boys Basketball coach for $3,280 and list Jordan Von Eye as a volunteer coach. Motion carried.

Motion was made by Becca Grassel, seconded by Rikki Ohlrogge, to approve mileage (state rate) to the school’s Wessington Springs/Woonsocket/Wolsey-Wessington Warhawk co-op wrestler, Tyson Eddy, when he drives to practices, etc. (Note: last year it was approved to pay a driver $25 per hour for driving and layover time, which will no longer be needed.) Motion carried.

On a motion made by Rikki Ohlrogge, seconded by Becca Grassel, the Board approves to surplus/salvage the old dumbbells in the fitness center. Dumbbells include: four – five pounds, two –  eight pounds, five – ten pounds, two – 12 pounds, four – 15 pounds, two – 20 pounds, two – 25 pounds, two – 30 pounds, four – 35 pounds, two – 40 pounds, two – 45 pounds, two – 50 pounds, one – 55 pounds, two – 60 pounds, two – 65 pounds, two – 70 pounds, two – 75 pounds. Motion carried.

Motion was made by Todd Olinger seconded by Lisa Snedeker to create a Trust and Agency Account (custodial account) for the HAWKS Committee. The HAWKS Committee focuses on student achievement and personal growth. Motion carried.

Motion was made by Todd Olinger, seconded by Becca Grassel, to approve an executive session for personnel reasons SDCL1-25-2(1) – started at 7:02 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. The Board then continued executive session with Sanborn Central School Board at 7:30 p.m. – out at 8:45 p.m. Motion carried.

With no further business to come before the Board, the November 13, 2023, regular school board meeting was adjourned at 8:46 p.m. on a motion by Becca Grassel, with a second by Todd Olinger. Motion carried.
