Chris Selland gave the financial report and updated the Board on the tax levy request for taxes payable in 2018. The general fund opt-out levy will be $0 (2017 general fund opt-out was $125,000.00) and the general fund regular levy will drop from $1.568 per $1,000.00 of valuation in 2017 to $1.507 in 2018. There will be an increase in the special education levy from $1.00 to $1.461 to accommodate for additional staff and anticipated increases in expenses, the capital outlay levy will be $600,000.00 as opposed to $475,000.00 for taxes payable in 2017 to build funding for a heating system for the gymnasium and elementary classrooms.
Superintendent Weber updated the Board on Homecoming plans and discussed the plan to host the October 13th football game at Wessington Springs instead of Woonsocket (this was the game that had been traded with Wessington Springs from the Aug. 25 rained out game) as the media box/crows nest can accommodate the announcers/coaches/cameras/radio personnel. Also, the field at Wessington Springs is more suited for the 11-man class with bleacher capacity and restroom availability.
Woonsocket, Sanborn Central and Wessington Springs Board Members (two Board Members from each school) along with Representatives and Administrators from each District met on September 6th. The purpose of the meeting was to hold a general discussion regarding football home events, future co-ops and future sharing opportunities for all schools.
Superintendent Weber also advised that there was an article in the state’s “Good News Bulletin” about our annual Veteran’s Day programs hosted by Mrs. Delvaux and the sixth grade class with help from all staff and students.
The ACT scores from last year are in with the Woonsocket School faring slightly better than the state average.
Also discussed was the plan to hire Koch-Hazard to proceed with and investigate plans for an elementary addition. Proposals were received from Koch-Hazard and Co-Op Architects.
The Board and staff would like to thank Todd Swenson for his generous donation to the school district with half of the donation split between the two Church-run Snack-Pack Programs.
Principal Paula Lynch advised that the staff is ready for parent-teacher conferences and the response to intervention program is going well.
Motion was made to approve the surplus/salvage of the following items: Old Elementary chain link fence, two outdated DDN TV’s, four DDN cabinets, 10 office chairs, one used AC unit, two file cabinets and two outdated smartboards. Motion was made by Lisa Snedeker, with a second by Jodi Doering, and motion carried. The Board will dispose of these items as they see fit.
Motion was made by Jodi Doering, with a second by Neal Hiemstra, to approve the following Junior Varsity/Junior High Football Referee stipends for 2017-2018: Junior High games – $25.00 and Junior Varsity games – $35.00. Motion carried.

Motion was made by Jodi Doering, with a second by Todd Olinger, to approve the proposal and procedures contract with Koch-Hazard Architects to start the process of investigating the design, cost, etc. for an elementary addition (approximately 5,000 square ft.). The architect will work alongside G&R Controls. The School Board will hold a public meeting once the preliminary design is created which includes estimated cost, time frame, etc. Motion carried.
On a motion by Neal Hiemstra, with a second by Lisa Snedeker, the Board approved the 2017-2018 consolidated Title and Special Education IDEA applications. These are the applications for our district’s federal funding. Motion carried.
It was moved by Jodi Doering, with a second by Neal Hiemstra, to approve a stipend of $35.00 per referee for our rained out football game from Aug. 25, 2017, in lieu of their regular fee for officiating a game, as they were present and spent time waiting to see if the game could be played. Also approved was one-way mileage for two referees. Motion carried.
Motion was made by Neal Hiemstra, with a second by Todd Olinger, to approve the resignation of Rob Baruth as Co-Head Girl’s Basketball Coach effective immediately. The Board thanks Mr. Baruth for his many years of service to the District. Motion carried.
On a motion by Lisa Snedeker, seconded by Neal Hiemstra, the Board approved a bonus payment of $150.00 each for Sarah Lieber and Pat Carsrud for time spent updating the library. Motion carried.
