SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT:       

 

Mr. Meyer informed the BOE of our current outstanding fees.  The collection process is moving very slowly at this point.  The senior and junior letters have been sent.  The 2010 Yearbooks have been handed out to all the students who paid for one.  Mr. Meyer reminded the BOE that this is the first year for an all color yearbook.  The Illinois School Board Association is having the Semi-Annual Conference and Dinner meeting at Germantown Elementary School on Thursday, October 28th.  Most of the BOE members will be in attendance.                

 

Normally at this time of the year, Mr. Meyer would be discussing with the BOE the purchase of a new Driver’s Education vehicle.  However during the Budget discussion it was decided to postpone this purchase.  A new van is scheduled to be purchased next year in the Transportation Fund, but will be addressed next year.

 

Mr. Meyer informed the BOE that since we have not met AYP in 2 years, we are designated as a “choice” school by NCLB guidelines and as an “Academic Early Warning” school by criteria.  This requires us to complete new mandates for our School Improvement Plan.  Keri Garrett from the Regional Office applied and was granted a grant that will assist us in these regulations.  The grant will pay for Dr. Ken Hill and Dr. Dennis Fancer to assist us in developing a new format to our new School Improvement Plan. 

 

The Summer 2010 project is still not closed.  However, most of the punch list items are completed. Those included touch up painting, installation of thresholds and repairing gaps above the doors. 

 

Mr. Dale Holtmann from J.W. Boyle Inc. submitted a proposed renewal for their audit services.  The proposal is for $7280 for their audit each year for the next 2 years.  This is a one-time 2% increase from the past 2 year contract.  A motion to approve the 2-year contract with J.W. Boyle Inc. for audit services for a fee of $7280 was made by Mike Nettemeier, second by Rick Taphorn.  Roll call vote:  Aye – Mary Lou Voss, Dave Wellen, Mike Strieker, Mike Nettemeier, Tim Richter, Rick Taphorn, Tina Winkeler.  Nay – None

 

Mr. Meyer reviewed the enrollment projection for the next couple of years.  Enrollment looks to be decreasing over the next few years.  All of the information is based on current enrollment at the elementary feeding schools. 

 

A motion to appoint Mrs. Jill Varel as a Designated Representative of the Board Secretary to disseminate and collect election materials was made by Mike Strieker, second by Tina Winkeler.  Roll call vote:  Aye – Mary Lou Voss, Dave Wellen, Mike Strieker, Mike Nettemeier, Tim Richter, Rick Taphorn, Tina Winkeler.  Nay – None

 

The Building Committee met on October 12th.  They reviewed the 10 year survey.  All but one Life Safety project have been completed.  It is projected that we will have $105,000 to spend out of the O&M fund for 2011 Summer Projects.  (This included a $200,000 reserve in the O&M fund.)  Life Safety is projecting to have $200,000 for any projects that qualify under Life Safety.  A discussion was held in regards to the outside restroom facility.  Mr. Todd Jones is getting more detailed information about this project.  The next meeting is scheduled for November 9th at 6:30 PM.

 

Mr. Meyer briefly reviewed the School Report Card.  This information was sent to him from the Interactive Illinois Report Card.  It provides comparisons with other districts.

 

A motion to employ Mrs. Christina Tebbe as an ESL aide pending all necessary paperwork was made by Tim Richter, second by Rick Taphorn.  Roll call vote:  Aye – Mary Lou Voss, Dave Wellen, Mike Strieker, Mike Nettemeier, Tim Richter, Rick Taphorn, Tina Winkeler.  Nay – None

 

PRINCIPAL’S REPORT:

 

Mr. Jeremy Shubert filled in for Mr. Jones while he was attending the IPA conference in Peoria.    

 

A Code Yellow, Code Red and a fire drill was all held the week of September 20th.  The police were in attendance for the Code Yellow and fire drill and were happy with the results.   

 

Homecoming Week was October 4th through October 8th.  All students had great behavior during the week and participated in the Homecoming Games on the 7th.  King Aaron Lackey and Queen Cassandra Merlock were crowned at the Homecoming Dance on Saturday night.
