Business Manager Yodean Armour briefly highlighted her report. She noted increased travel expenses under Superintendent and Fiscal due to Jim Holien traveling during this transitional time to various state-wide meetings.  The District is working with our insurance broker to comply with the new health care law requirements. We have been approved for E-rate for FY 14. Approximately $290,000 would be anticipated from Forestry Receipts under the Helium Bill that has extended the Secure Rural Schools Act has signed by the President.  This is a one-year extension, but is a 10% decrease from FY 12 levels.  A second round of sequester (5.1% decrease) will likely come into effect unless the Congress passes a budget with significant cuts. 

 

                        F.            Superintendent – Superintendent

 

Superintendent Rich Carlson discussed his report.  Administrative transitions are taking place with training time allocated to Jim Holien and Kelli Larson.  AMO’s will be released October 14 with the targets for the next six years.  These targets will require increases in the number of students proficient on standardized test by a certain percentage unique to each district every year for the next six years.  Jim Holien will provide the district’s AMO’s to the Board in a Board Update next week.  Action Items A-F are re-approvals each year for grants and e-rate compliance.  Action Item G addresses the Boards concerns to require stringent requirements for Middle School participation in activities for less than full-time students.  If passed the administration will define how the eligibility verifications would occur in an administrative regulation.  Item H is the extension of the school day for kindergarteners.  The School Improvement process will coincide with the AdvancEd accreditation process.  The next meeting is Saturday, October 12.  Mr. Carlson will be out of the district on medical leave beginning October 14 for about a week and a half.  The district is working with the insurance broker on the Affordable Health Care Act requirements.
