R-P reviews goals


Fri, Apr 22nd, 2011
Posted in Sports



The district's goals and objectives are receiving some fine tuning, thanks in part to a desire to focus on a strategic plan. Board member Beth Stanford suggests the formation of a work group or committee to formulate this plan. The time factor is the biggest obstacle, with administration already occupied with several tasks, including the obvious end of the current year piggybacking on planning for the next.

The current compilation of goals includes several ongoing processes, and in large part, the board feels these goals are on target. However, the current goals were documented more than five years ago. Stanford has said she believes it would be prudent to further define the goals and the methods it will take to accomplish them, including prioritization. It will be the board's responsibility to set these priorities and parameters.

"As a realist, don't give me more than five or six under each category," cautioned Superintendent Chuck Ehler.

In an effort to address the goals, the board will hold a working session in early October aimed at the next three to five years for the district. By that time, it is hoped the legislature will have some indication of state funding, also a critical piece in the district's future.

In other news, the district will move ahead with the exploration of a foundation for fundraising. Teacher Jenny Helgemoe, Community Education Director Beth Theede, and board members Roger Metz and Greg Smith met recently to review the potential benefits and drawbacks of forming a self-standing 501c3 organization. It may be more beneficial for the district to fall under the umbrella of the larger Rushford Community Foundation (RCF). Metz has spoken with local attorney Dale Evavold as to the ramifications of each and believes a cooperative effort between the two foundations would be most beneficial.

In addition, the new R-P Foundation will require a paid worker to handle the day-to-day aspects, coordination of fundraising, and the handling of donations. In the spirit of cooperation and cost-savings, Theede intends to approach the RCF about the possibility of a shared employee.

The foundation will be set up with various categories or designations for donations. They are currently exploring the option of donation levels, set at varying amounts, to encourage "seed money" for the foundation. It is expected that the board will be presented with more information at the May meeting.
