SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT:                   

 

Mr. Meyer gave a brief report on the outstanding textbook and activity fees for the meeting.  We have sent the enclosed letter to those Senior parents with outstanding bills.  Over the next few weeks, Mr. Meyer will be speaking personally with those Senior students and their parents.  All must have these resolved in order to participate in the graduation ceremony.  We also continue to have reminders sent each month through the Qmlativ system to others with outstanding bills clearly stating the terms of late payment fees which will be assessed at the end of the school year.  We have received the annual capital credits payment as a cooperative member of Clinton County Electric.  This $4,010.86 payment is from our share of the retired earnings/profits during the 1991 calendar year.

 

We have many banquets coming up… The 18th Annual Clinton County Academic Excellence Banquet will be held at 7:00 P.M. on Wednesday, April 27th at 7:00 P.M. at the Albers American Legion.  Central has thirteen students and their parents who will be recognized at the event.  This is a great opportunity each year to reward and bring attention to those students who achieved great academic success.  We thank all of our corporate sponsors (especially the Clinton County Electric Cooperative from our district) for funding the event.  We also have our 10th Annual Academic Achievement Awards program here at Central on Thursday, May 5th at 7:00 PM.  This will be a chance to celebrate achievements by our students.  Presentations of scholarships, academic performance, attendance, and other special recognitions will be presented.  Invitations will be sent to those students being honored and their parents, but the event is open to the public. 

 

Mr. Meyer will be presenting two members of the staff who are retiring this year tokens of our appreciation to them on behalf of the Board of Education and Administration.

 

Mr. Meyer informed the BOE of the next year’s GSA, which is prorated at 92%.

 

Mr. Meyer gave an update on the Summer 2016 Project.  The project is moving forward with appropriate paperwork and planning for start of the work.  We have already held a meeting with Unterbrink Construction for the order placement they are doing with their subcontractor (Lyon).   This involved a detailed review of all doors, locksets, panic bars, etc. within the building for correct type and operation.    We will be holding a pre-construction meeting with CommSquad over the coming weeks to coordinate plans.  We will also be working on schedules and other matters here at Central that allow us to work around the project.

 

As part of our summer work, we have received the proposal from CTS Technology Solutions, Inc. for the door entry system that we have discussed over the past few months.  The system includes the door control units for 3entrances, software, desktop PC, battery backup, power supply, two packs of FOB’s (100 units), readers, wiring, and all installation labor.  Total cost proposed is $11,552.78.  This will make our three main entrances security enhanced and controlled for all staff members.  CTS is also the vendor that maintains our phone system and security system for which the door entry system will be coordinated.  This is advantageous for possible future issues.  A motion to approve CTS Technology Solutions, Inc. for the door entry system project this summer for the amount of $11,552.78 was made by Voss, second by Meier. Roll call vote:  Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Dennis Meier, Tina Winkeler, Mary Lou Voss, Mike Strieker, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

A motion to adopt the Wellness Policy added to the Board Policy manual was made by Winkeler, second by Voss.  Roll call vote:  Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Dennis Meier, Tina Winkeler, Mary Lou Voss, Mike Strieker, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

Mrs. Lisa Wiegmann and Mrs. Mandy Ringwald gave a technology presentation to the BOE regarding the efforts this past year and discuss the direction of our programs for the summer and into next year.  The condition of our technology program is in great shape but we will be making some purchases to maintain and grow the system.  They reviewed some long range planning and discussed goals for a future deployment and implementation of a 1:1 Platform in our programs.  This will be a major commitment of funds, training, and transition in instructional methods.  And finally, we would like to discuss some preliminary plans for an even longer range commitment that might fit into our building and facility planning.  A motion to approve the technology purchases for this school year and plans for next year was made by   , second by     .  Roll call vote:  Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Dennis Meier, Tina Winkeler, Mary Lou Voss, Mike Strieker, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

Mr. Meyer reviewed the Curriculum Study Cycle over the next few years.  Some revisions are needed that fit into the topics discussed in the previous item and place our budgetary situation in a better position.  We are recommending that we do our Career and Technical study over a two-year period while we are making a transition to the 1:1 Platform and place ourselves in a better position for subscriptions to e-textbooks in a few years for the core subject areas.  A motion to approve the curriculum study cycle was made by Voss, second by Winkeler.  Roll call vote:  Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Dennis Meier, Tina Winkeler, Mary Lou Voss, Mike Strieker, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

We have been notified by Mrs. Julie Wollermann, Superintendent of Schools in Regional Office of Education #3 (Bond, Christian, Effingham, Fayette and Montgomery Counties) that Bond County passed the County School Facility Occupation Sales Tax.  Since we have a portion of Bond County and students who reside in that county, we will receive funds from this tax on the 10th day of each month based on a formula determined by the statute.  These funds can only be utilized for the purpose of constructing new facilities or maintaining existing facilities at the school.  A motion to approve the Funds Distribution agreement with ROE #3 was made by Richter, second by Strieker.  Roll call vote:  Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Dennis Meier, Tina Winkeler, Mary Lou Voss, Mike Strieker, Tim Richter.  Nay – None
