Chatfield School Board members briefly met for its regular monthly meeting on Monday, June 17 with four of six members present.

The board discussed the Activity Committee meeting held on June 12 with coaches, administrators and the new activities director, Dan Schindler. The committee with the help of Schindler is developing a coaching evaluation system and coaching handbook. As both items are under development, Superintendent Harris stated that they should be done by the end of July and then they will be ready to be approved by the entire school board. The new strategy to supervise coaches comes after a lack of oversight as the district did not have an athletic director or activities director.

Superintendent Harris also announced that the public, parents, and teachers should be aware that this year’s MCA testing scores will be lower than last year because a different scale is being used by the Minnesota Department of Education and Commissioner Cassellius.

Secondary Principal Randy Paulson thanked Tom Hughes, who served the school’s industrial tech position, for his 22 years of service. Hughes also was the high school prom advisor.

Consent items were passed by the board including the hiring of Adam Hurley as the 9th grade football coach for the fall, the resignation of eighth grade volleyball coach Nikki Ostby, and the hiring of B-squad basketball coach Jeremy McBroom.

The board also increased meal prices for the 2013-2014 school year by five cents. Breakfast is now $1.15, elementary lunch is $1.85, high school lunch is $2.05, and adult lunch is $3.30.

The next board meeting is changed to Tuesday, July 16 at 7pm in the high school media center.
