Chatfield School Board members met on Monday, September 16, which has been the first meeting since the beginning of the new school year. All board members were present for the meeting along with Superintendent Harris, Principal Randy Paulson, and staff representatives Elissa Johnsrud and Kristy Cook who were there to speak on technology integration.

One of the district’s teachers, Adam Archer, made a statement before the board, thanking them for their support as he has just returned from spending two years as a volunteer in Tanzania. The board had granted Archer a two year leave of absence.

Principal Randy Paulson commented that the high school has had a very smooth start to the school year. All students have handed in their updated handbook agreements. Also in the high school, the Chatfield Student Senate is planning homecoming activities.

Superintendent Harris stated that enrollment is up slightly this year compared to the 2012-2013 school year. In September of 2012, the district had a total of 911 students, and the district currently has an enrollment of 921.

Superintendent Harris also explained to the board that he has been completing an updated Emergency Resources plan which consists of a group titled the District Crisis Team. The detailed plan lists how each type of possible emergency that could threaten the school should be handled. Administrators can control the district’s doors, phones, cameras, and skywarn system all from offsite locations.

In consent items the board approved the hiring of high school custodian Dave Ahern. In new business the board approved fundraisers, certified the projected levy payable SY2014 with the maximum amount in all areas. Even with maximum amounts in all areas, the levy amounts decreased by 8 percent from last year, which should lower taxes. Finally, the board approved a technology coordinator contract.

The next regular monthly school board meeting is October 21, 2013 at 7 p.m. in the Chatfield High School Media Center.
