The minutes of the regular board meeting held on April 10th, 2019, were approved as presented, on a motion by Jodi Doering, with a second by Neal Hiemstra. Motion carried.  

Kami Moody addressed the Board with a proposal to purchase a new piece of playground equipment with funds to be contributed by the Woonsocket Elementary Parent Club and the District.

Chris Selland gave the financial report and reviewed the preliminary 2019-2020 budget. Also, the federal Title 1 allotment for 2019-2020 is up from $48,095.00 (2018-19) to $83,556.00. The allotment is based on an annual federal census that includes SNAP applications and tax returns from district patrons. The allotment can fluctuate from year to year, so there is no guarantee that it will not be reduced in the future, but this is by far the biggest increase the district has seen. Tentative plans are to hire a Title 1 Aid with the additional funding with the understanding that the position may have to be eliminated if the funding is reduced in subsequent years by a large amount.

Superintendent Weber advised that graduation went well and the last day of school for the students is Wednesday, May 15th, with a 1:30 p.m. dismissal. 

District test scores were discussed along with a plan to departmentalize subjects for the fourth, fifth and sixth grade students. One teacher will teach all three grades math, one all three social studies and one all three science with each teacher teaching one class of English/language arts. The students will be stationary and the teachers will rotate into the classrooms. 

The State Motto issue was discussed, along with current coaching openings. 

Superintendent Weber has been advised by a Sanborn Central parent that they are looking into an addition onto the 4-H building for additional shooting sports and possible gym space. 

Lisa Snedeker updated the Board on the community daycare and the Board was apprised on who would be responsible for what costs regarding the building. 

Lead Teacher Sarah Jensen updated the Board on Elementary activities, Dare, field trips, Title 1 math night and VIP day.
