Faculty/Parent Support: Tim Crites and Kraig Sutherland said they would like to
encourage board to devise outward support to administration, faculty and parents. It
was suggested to invite a parent and faculty member to each open session as part of
monthly meetings. After discussion and in addition to having two parent
representatives and two teachers at each monthly open session board meeting, it was
decided board will set up once a month a forums (breakfast or lunch) with parents and
faculty. First faculty forum will be a breakfast August 8th at 8:00 AM -10:00 AM to share
goals, input and brain storm ideas with teachers. First meeting with parents will be
September 7th at 7:00 AM – 8:30 AM in the commons. Cathy, Brad, Heather and
Elizabeth all agreed to be here, but any board member is invited (Elizabeth is bringing
donuts). The goal is to let teachers and parents know we are here to support them and
will listen to their input, needs, etc. Brad to speak on subject at each upcoming
orientation. Sara also told board that teachers would like to see school board members’
presence in the school…..walking halls, stopping in classes from time to time.
Dustin reported school received a gift from Farmington public school
system for K-6 new Journey’s reading and language series. He estimated this was
approximately $20,000 to $30,000 of material. Eileen is going to send a thank you letter to the
school board or Shana Turner, Director of Elementary Education.
Dustin passed out school calendar and sheet with enrollment numbers by grade as of July 10th.
Grand total is 229 students, not counting Little Giants. Preschool is 54 of the 229 total. We
have 175 in grades K-8.
Anti-Bully Policy – Seth Pegram is rewriting. Dustin will follow-up with him to see where
Elizabeth requested to change meeting time and day. After discussion on possible
options, it was decided to keep on the third Tuesday of each month but meeting will not
start until 6:30 PM verse 6:00 PM. However, board members will attend the all-boards
6:00 PM opening in commons area.
Vacant Board Position – After discussion on possible fills for vacant board seat left by
Seth Pegram, the following three possible candidates will be approached and discussion
results brought back to next meeting.
Nancy Rouggly – Cathy will speak to.
Tracy Laut – Elizabeth will speak to.
Lisa Short – Dustin will speak to.
Marketing – Elizabeth requested we set up a Marketing group to help promote the
school. We have a $2,000 budget for this already. Elizabeth will head the group. Each
board member is asked to bring to next meeting one person that would be able to help
with this promotion. Heather suggested we have each board member take a turn
adding a paragraph one time a month to the school news letter.
School Operating Budget: Dustin provided recap. Budget is still on track from report last
New milk cooler has been delivered.
Continuing Ed program - Dustin still needs to write out policy detailing how tuition aide
will be fairly distributed to teachers wishing to use funds.
Delinquent tuitions – We still have five families behind. Dustin is working with them to
work something out (last family contacted him this week to discuss). Current policy is
that tuition has to be caught up prior to start of first semester for enrollment or family
has to be working with Dustin in good faith to get back on track.
All needed teachers are in placed/been hired.
Church and Sunday School Attendance for Lutheran members: Lack of Sunday School
attendance from Lutheran members was briefly discussed. Dustin is to start conversation with
Pastor Constien on subject to look for help with problem. School handbook clearly states
regular church and Sunday School attendance are expected. Parents should also be
encouraged that supporting regular church and Sunday School attendance sets a pattern for
later in life. Sara will also see how teachers can encourage this more.
