Posted in Education

At the regular Chatfield School Board meeting on Tuesday, September 21st, 2010, Jerry Chase, Kathy Schellhammer, and Greg LaPlante were the board members that were present. Absent members included F. Mike Tuohy and Matt McMahon. Also present were English instructor Ben Volker, Title One assistant Julie Young, reading specialist Judith Brockway, Superintendant Ed Harris, and Principals Craig Ihrke and Randy Paulson. The agenda consisted of many items of business.

During Superintendant Ed Harris's address to the board, he first noted that the beginning of the school year has started off in great shape. Exceptional preparations by staff members have allowed these first days of the new academic year to be very successful. He mentioned that this year's homecoming is filled with fun events and participation from the students has been great. An update of the student enrollment numbers that will be issued after October 1st will allow for a budget update. When it came to the facilities report, Harris said he'd been looking into a roofing report saying that the surface of the roof is in good shape. Further information is coming at a future meeting on the projection of the roof's condition. The sidewalk project will soon be underway as soon as the fall weather cooperates with workers, along with the seeding and fencing at the elementary school fields. The future sport's seasons are also being looked at as the school will be conducting a spring sports participation survey.

In other business, the board approved the hiring of J.B. Mathison as the B squad girls basketball coach. Approval of Lauren Knuttila as the 9th grade girls coach was also passed. The board also recognized the resignation of Corey Dahl as the high school nurse and has given consent to have a posting of the position advertised. Another resignation of Reyne Knutson from a food service position was also observed.

In old business, the board agreed to pass the pay requests from the contractors who remodeled the high school restrooms. The total amount paid from the district totals $65,385.99 for the completion of the project.

New business consisted of hiring Hammell Equipment for the job of snow removal for the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school years. Fund raisers were also accepted for the current school year. Board Chair Jerry Chase recommended that the board set up a committee to check out and view fund raisers in the future. In addition, the projected levy payable for 20 .....
