The Chatfield School Board met on Monday, November 19 with all members present at this regular monthly meeting. In addition to those who normally report to the board, auditor Alan Anderson was also present to present the 2011-2012 district auditor report to the board members.

Anderson reported good news to the district for another consecutive year informing them that the district’s general fund was up a significant margin even though the revenues for the past year were down by about $20,000. Anderson complimented the district’s student activities accounts for being well monitored and staying steady on a year-by-year basis, an important part of maintaining a positive educational district’s budget. To conclude his report, Anderson announced that the district’s auditor reports that have been submitted to the state this year are again adequate to state guidelines. Both Anderson and Superintendent Harris thanked the district’s business manager Karyl Lyon for her dedication in keeping the district’s funds accurate and in check.

Both principals gave a brief report from the elementary and high school. Principal Ihrke stated that the new reading program is working extremely well with 93 percent of students in the elementary school reading at or above their grade levels. Also, he described a reading research program that lasts a semester where students develop research skills. A total of 42 students in first grade through sixth grade are participating and can exit the supplemental program if an adequate level of reading skills are met. Principal Paulson congratulated the athletes of the fall sports season and is looking forward to an action-filled winter sports season. Principal Paulson also described the eighth grade Courage Retreat that focused on reducing bullying and discrimination.

In Superintendent Harris’s address to the board, he emphasized donations made to the district from Irv and Betty Timms of Stewartville, and a donation made in memory of Bill Stokes who graduated from Chatfield as part of the class of 1961. Harris elaborated on the teacher and principal evaluation projects and how new state legislation has an impact on the process. To end, he announced how two programs are expanding within the district including Knowledge Bowl, now available to middle school students and the progression of the Gifted and Talented Program.
