The regular meeting of the Board of Education of Central Community High School was held on February 18, 2020 at 7:00PM in the Board Room.

 

Members present were Mike Nettemeier, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Tim Richter, Jeff Kampwerth and Sean Kennedy.  Visitors included Mike and Kelly Kampwerth, Ami Shanafelt and Kelly Ross.

 

The agenda was amended and approved on a motion by Richter, 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 minutes of the previous meeting were approved on a motion by Kennedy, second by Voss.   Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

Dr. Foutch updated the BOE on the outstanding student fees.  At this point, personal letters will be mailed to the parents of students who have an outstanding balance.   

 

Dr. Foutch informed the BOE that the upcoming FFA Banquet on April 7th and KSED Spring Governing Board on April second have been cancelled.  Ms. Carlson plans to hopefully reschedule the FFA Banquet in May. 

 

In August, the State of Illinois began allowing school districts to use Health / Life Safety Funds to cover the personnel costs involved with hiring a school mental health expert.  In order to use these funds, a school district must have sufficient money in the H/LS fund to cover all their 10-year health/life safety needs AND the additional cost of the new employee.  Dr. Foutch has been working with our architect to examine whether or not Central meets these criteria and it has been determined by FGM that we are more than capable financially to meet our building and grounds needs and still have sufficient funds left over to hire a mental health expert.  Dr. Foutch has also worked with our school attorney, Jeff Funk, to ensure that we were on solid legal ground and he created the resolution necessary to make the hire. The estimated total personnel costs involved in the hire would be approximately $70,000.  Again, this money would all come from the H/LS fund.  A motion to approve the use of Health/Life Safety funds to hire a mental health expert was made by J. Kampwerth, 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

 

Another item previously discussed was the creation of an Athletic Director/Assistant Principal Administrative position that would take on the duties of the current athletic director position and also various tasks that will be determined by the building principal.   A motion to create and post the Athletic Director/Assistant Principal position 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   

 

Dr. Foutch reviewed the Transportation Bids with the BOE.  He went through each transportation run and stated the bids from both bidders.  A motion to approve and award all transportation routes to M & K Bus Services was made by Kennedy, second by Richter.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Tanya Kampwerth, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter.  Nay – None

 

After being reviewed by our architect, Todd Jones, it was determined that the “courtyard” space would not be suitable for a greenhouse. Todd stated that the “fire rating” of the current walls of the courtyard would not support another structure being built in that area and all the walls would need to be replaced with materials that would meet code.  This would be extremely cost prohibitive and Todd recommended a site for the greenhouse that is directly west of the current Ag. Classroom. 

 

Millennium Construction recommended that we place “snow guards” on the concession stand and maintenance building’s new metal roofs.  The owner of Millennium, Mark Kabureck, stated these guards were needed to keep snow and ice from accumulating on the roof, melting, and then sliding down the roof and ripping off the gutters or injuring passersby.  The cost of installing these guards would be $5,450.  Dr. Foutch will revisit this option next month after a few questions are proposed to Todd Jones.   

 

With the current situation of Coronavirus pandemic, the BOE decided to table the talk of approving the amended 2019-2020 calendar.

A motion to re-employ all non-certified employees for 2020-2021 was made by Voss, 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

PRINCIPAL’S REPORT:

 

Freshman Registration Night was held on Wednesday, March 4, 2020 from 3:00pm-7:00pm.  The event was very well attended with 141 incoming freshman families registering during the four-hour time frame on that evening.  Now that Freshman Registration Night has occurred, our counselors and office staff are working through enrollment numbers, seat counts across classes and master schedule design.  The number of families that attended that night is 10 larger than last year and when looking at current class sizes and the estimated number of incoming freshmen who still need to register, our 2020-2021 enrollment will definitely increase.

 

All 18 Certified Teaching Evaluations were completed and submitted to Dr. Foutch on Friday, 2/28/20.  During the early summer months, Mr. Ketchum will update the evaluation list for the 2020-2021 year and prepare teachers for their evaluation timelines and overall process for evaluating the other half of certified staff.

 

For the 1st time in 20-30 years (and possible in history), Central CHS will be sending 5 students to the Academic Challenge State Competition.  Our students consistently demonstrate how our academic prowess is highly competitive against high schools across the state of Illinois.  The 5 students being recognized will be competing on April 21, 2020 at Eastern Illinois University in the State Competition against students from across the state.

 

Congratulations to Central Cougar Sophomore, Austyn Jansen, for advancing to the IHSA State Finals for Class 2A in the Girls’ Basketball 3-point Competition.  Thank you for representing Central in such a positive way at the state level!

 

Thank you to Ms. Katie Florczyk and her 5th Hour Communications class for creating and hosting a special awards ceremony for our FLS program.  Specifically, students in Ms. Florczyk’s class interviewed students in Ms. Weh’s class and after gathering significant information, they present each student with a “Student of the Week” award, along with a recognition reception.  The instant bond that was created between learners from both classes was evident and impactful!

 

Congratulations to Ms. Nicole Weh for being awarded the 2019 Southern Illinois Community Support Services Advocacy Award.  The focus of this recognition is to award an individual for making a difference in the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
