SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT: Both buildings are looking great; new teachers started today, Cody Freland and Johnathon Bowling introduced themselves to the board. Thanked office staff, they are working hard on transitioning to PowerSchool. Thank you to everyone, it has been a great transition so far, he is receiving lots of great ideas and feedback. Supt. Christiansen has been checking into resetting keys in both buildings for better security. Mr. Frohlich lined up transportation for a wheelchair bound student, it will cost $112/week. Still working on schedules, they will be done soon. Checking into early retirement policies, still waiting on information back from SAI and IASB. Supt. Christiansen reviewed facility drawings, colors for walls, tiles, and chairs in the auditorium with the board. PRINCIPAL’S REPORT: Mr. Frohlich reported the custodians have been working very hard preparing the school for the new year. Due to having a wheelchair bound student, the preschool playground needs updating; it has been graded, but concrete is not yet poured. The transition has gone very well; Hollie has been helping Scott with all his questions. Teachers have been in the building working on getting their rooms ready. TECHNOLOGY REPORT: We transferred to FMCTC, the bus barn can now page/call to here as if they were in the same building. There is no camera at the bus barn, there should probably be one installed. The new webpage is now up and running; we are making progress with Schoology and the new domain is going over well. Shelley suggests getting more flat panels for the BVS building and iPads for preschoolers as the chromebooks are too cumbersome for them. NEW BUSINESS: A.
