At its regular August meeting on August 18, the Chatfield School Board approved a resolution authorizing new board approved referendum authority that will generate local revenue for the district. While the additional revenue will be generated locally, its impact on Chatfield taxpayers will be minimal.

Elementary Principal Craig Ihrke reported that the elementary handbook had been updated later in the meeting the board approved the handbook for the new school year. Ihrke also said he was waiting for MCA results to be released for the district.

High School Principal Randy Paulson reported that fall sports are up and running. Many of the coaches recently attended the “Why We Play” program that took place at Dover-Eyota. To conclude, Paulson stated that 7th grade orientation is scheduled for August 26 and 9th grade orientation on August 27.

Superintendent Ed Harris said that with the school year approaching, staff will return to high impact staff development planning at teacher workshops the week of August 25. Also, Harris said that a good draft has been composed for the teacher evaluation project. Harris ended by thanking Tom Sturgis and Kathy Schellhammer for their years of service on the Chatfield School Board. Both members have decided not to seek re-election. Matt McMahon’s term is also up, though he has filed for another term.

In New Business, the board approved staff and student handbooks. It was stated that handbooks are online and that only Kindergarten students and their families will receive paper copies this year in an effort to save paper.

The Truth in Taxation Hearing was set for December 15, 2014.

The board passed a resolution calling for the School District General Election.
