The financial report and payment of bills were reviewed and accepted on a motion by J. Kampwerth, second by Richter.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter, Tanya Kampwerth.  Nay – None

 

Dr. Foutch reviewed the communication and information with the Board.  An email to parents was sent out to our parents regarding our “Back to School” plan.

 

We have not received official information regarding the Career and Technical and Perkins Tutorial grant commitments or allocations, but every indication from the people at the CTE office has confirmed a likely approval.  Just as other years, we are hopeful that we can supplement the RTI tutoring services with supply and material money from the Career and Technical Education grant program.  We have Mrs. Stacy Schroeder supervising the program and we have confirmed that Mrs. Dawn Becker will return as the tutor on grant funds.  When we get word, we will move forward with the CTE “materials and supplies” portion of the program. 

 

Dr. Foutch went over the important upcoming dates regarding the start of the school year.   There will be small changes to our registration schedule.  This fall, we will only be registering freshmen and transfer students “in person.”  The rest of our returning families will be able to register their students and pay fees online.  Our “Back to School” Committee also decided that it would be best for only 9th and 10th grade students to attend on the first day of school.  This decision was made for two purposes.  One, due to the ISBE guideline stating that no more than 50 students can gather in any one area, we need to be able to direct our students to their morning and lunch locations in an efficient manner.  By having only half the students here on the first day, it will greatly improve that process.  Also, due to this same restriction, we will be unable to host our “normal” Freshman Orientation.  This orientation will now be for “students only” and we will not be able to run through certain aspects of the program (lunch lines, simulated schedule, etc.)  We felt that it would be good for freshmen to have a day to run through their schedules with fewer students in the building.

 

The Varsity Baseball Dugout project was briefly discussed.  Todd Jones provided some printouts of the dugouts.

 

Dr. Foutch reviewed the “Back to School” Plan for the 20-21 School Year.  A motion to approve resolution to reopen school via our "Back to School" plan was made by Richter, second by Kruse.  Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter, Tanya Kampwerth.  Nay – None

 

The Health Insurance Committee will meet on Wed., July 22nd to review the renewal package from our current provider.  The board will approve the selected package at the August Board Meeting.  We are also still under the same coverage for Term Life/Accidental Death/Disability policy that we currently have with Dearborn Life.  This program (although offered at basic levels of coverage by the district as part of the options to get group rates) does get contractually deducted from the monthly cap amount just like health insurance and therefore affects the salary level for our staff members.  (Staff members can obtain additional coverage in this area at a payroll deduction.)

 

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that we must complete and submit a Consolidated District Plan (CDP) in order to be eligible for federal Title I funds. A motion to approve the Consolidated District Plan for Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was made by Kennedy, second by T. Kampwerth. Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter, Tanya Kampwerth.  Nay – None   

 

Annually, in order to remain a member of the CTE COOP, we must complete an Intergovernmental Agreement with the Marion, Clinton, and Washington Counties Career and Technical Education System.  We have been extremely pleased with the services provided by our CTE system.  A motion to approve the Intergovernmental Agreement with Marion, Clinton and Washington Counties Career and Technical Education System was made by Kennedy, second by Kruse.Roll call vote: Aye –Mike Nettemeier, Sean Kennedy, Mary Lou Voss, Amy Kruse, Jeff Kampwerth, Tim Richter, Tanya Kampwerth.  Nay – None

PRINCIPAL’S REPORT:

 

Dr. Ketchum informed the BOE that there are 7 “last year” seniors who still have outstanding student fees.  Dr. Ketchum is calling each one of these students/parents to try to get payment for their fees.

 

Our Driver’s Education instructors are working tirelessly to get caught up on driving hours this summer.  For example, several students with early/mid July birthdays have finished and received their driver’s licenses.

 

The E-Learning Team will be meeting on Wednesday, July 22 @ 1:00pm to utilize the most updated guidance from ISBE, along with our Back to School Plan, to adjust our E-Learning Plan accordingly for 20-21.   

 

Dr. Ketchum stated that new procedures will be put in place for “drop-offs” at school to decrease gatherings and unnecessary group contact. 

 

The IHSA announced on July 14th that all “Return to Play” guidelines will be deferred to ISBE, IDPH, and the Governor’s office going forward.  Until direction is received from those named groups, Central Athletics will continue with the same guidelines as what we are currently under. Student athletes will continue workouts and are wearing masks for indoor workouts.  Social distancing will remain mandatory for indoor workouts as well.  For outdoor workouts, masks do not have to be worn if social distancing can be upheld.

 

Dr. Ketchum also recognized Amy Kruse, Michelle Essenpreis, Dawn Thomas, MANY other parent volunteers, and PAWS for planning and hosting a wonderful Summer Formal for our Juniors and Seniors on July 11th!  The feedback was extremely positive and this was such a great opportunity for our students!
