The Chatfield School Board convened for its June meeting on Monday, June 16 at 7 p.m. Present were all school board members, district principals Craig Ihrke and Randy Paulson, Superintendent Ed Harris and the district’s activities director, Dan Schindler.

The meeting opened with comments from both principals on a great end to the school year. There will be two summer school sessions taking place this summer. The dates for 8th grade trip to Washington D.C. is also rapidly approaching.

Activities Director Dan Schindler was present at the meeting to recap the new coach evaluation plan that was put into place at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year.

To begin, Schindler went through a list of achievements of Chatfield’s student athletes. Schindler then continued to explain what modifications to the district’s activities programs that he and the activities committee had made during the previous school year.

During July of 2013, Schindler held a meeting with coaches to lay out his expectations. Head coaches had a pre- and post-season meeting with Schindler as part of their evaluation. Coaches were also required to provide parents with weekly emails. This coming year coaches will set a goal for themselves as well.

Most of the expectations that Schindler and the activities committee set seemed to create positive results, as shown by a survey and by student performance in extracurricular activities. There will be a few more changes implemented in the coming school year such as requiring coaches at all levels to send out weekly emails to parents in order to keep them informed.

Also during July of 2013, Schindler held a combined acquaintance meeting with parents, athletes and coaches which they hope to do again.

Superintendent Harris’ report to the board consisted of information on the 2015SY budget. Harris’ projections were preliminary, but included a minimal enrollment decline due to a smaller Kindergarten class in the upcoming school year. However, Harris is optimistic that the five year average will stay where it is currently at, making revenue based on the number of students steady.

Later in the meeting the board approved the budgets for the 2014-2015 school year as follows:

1. General Fund: Revenue $8,140,494, Expenditures $8,266,996, Net ($126,502)

2. Food Service Fund: Revenue $397,245.63, Expendi .....
