Dr. Foutch gave the BOE an updated schedule for fees collected and owed. We continue to send reminders about outstanding textbook and activity fees by monthly notifications and hope to collect much of this during the first semester. We also recently sent a letter to those families with significant outstanding accounts (of over $300) encouraging monthly payments or use of other payment methods.

We have received several inquiries in regards to our concession stand and storage building metal and siding project and two contractors have stated they will be submitting bids. A motion to accept the bid for the metal and siding project from Millenium Construction was made by Richter, second by Kennedy. Roll call vote: Aye -Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter. Nay - None

The Outdoor Project has been completed and all paperwork, documents, and warranty information has been submitted. Litteken Construction has been diligent this fall and they completed all work still required after their subcontractor fell short of our standards. Litteken completed their contracted work and also reseeded and mulched the outfield of the JV diamond, cleaned up the ditch going to the soccer field, re-graded and properly seeded the area around the long-jump and pole vault pits, and fixed a leak due to a damaged pipe by the JV field. The additional work was completed at no additional cost to the district. The substantial completion stage has been reached and Litteken has submitted their final Applications for Payment #9 in the amount of $8,958.50 and Payment #10 in the amount of $91,087.95. In regards to Payment #9, this amount was for the additional material required on the JV infield due to the original grass infield design error. FGM has agreed to reimburse Central for half of the cost of that material and we will submit an invoice to them in the amount of $4,479.26. A motion to approve payment to Litteken Construction for payment #9 and #10 for $8958.50 & $91,087.95 respectively was made by J. Kampwerth, second by Kruse.

The BOE had a discussion regarding Bass Fishing. The BOE decided to gather more information and hopefully make a decision by the November Board Meeting. If the program is approved, we will need to list it on our insurance renewal.

A motion to approve the goals set by the BOE as well as a new mission statement, "We Don't Have a Mission Statement, We Have People Who are ON A MISSION to Imagine and Achieve Greatness." was made by Voss, second by Richter. Roll call vote: Aye -Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter. Nay - None

When we completed our new additions this summer, and installed the required additional components to our Fire Alarm System, we realized that our old control panel was very close to its maximum operating capacity. In order to correct this issue, we need to upgrade the control panel to a new system with more room for the additional detectors that were added. We currently have an H/LS project open (for the new fire alarm components installed in the building additions) and there are sufficient funds available in the Health/Life Safety fund to cover the cost of the new Fire Alarm Panel. Health/Life Safety funds can only be utilized to replace existing systems or structures. Todd Jones of FGM Architects is working to prepare this amendment but requires our action to make final steps and submit. A motion to approve the submittal of Health Life Safety amendment for fire alarm control panel replacement was made by Kruse, second by J. Kampwerth. Roll call vote: Aye -Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter. Nay - None

The Swing for Sydney Foundation made a generous donation to Central High School last spring. This money was donated to help start a Lifesavers Peer Support Group at Central. We are in the final stages of selecting students to be part of this group and we will be sending 10 students to receive formal "Lifesaver" training on December 6th - 8th. This training will help our student support group develop skills in 12 core areas. Those areas are: self-esteem development, identifying struggling peers, coping, self-awareness, decision making, breaking communication barriers, listening, positive peer relationships, leadership, group participation, feeling/sharing concern for others, and knowing one's own limits and when to refer to a professional. A motion to approve the overnight trip for students to attend the Lifesaver training was made by Kennedy, second by T. Kampwerth. Roll call vote: Aye -Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter. Nay - None
