Fri, Dec 27th, 2013
Posted in Chatfield Education

CPA Alan Anderson was in attendance at the Chatfield School Board meeting on Monday, December 16 to give a district audit financial report on the 2012-2013 school year budget. Anderson reported that the school district is doing well in terms of its finances. Alan commented that business manager Karyl Lyon does an excellent job at maintaining records and keeping the district budget in check.

Superintendent Harris also spoke on the district’s finances explaining that the general fund has a typical breakdown and that all fund balances are positive. For the next two years Harris said that the district is on course for what he and Lyon had projected as expenditures will be reduced nearly $150,000.

By the end of the meeting, the board certified the final levy payable 2014, which was set at $2,015,395.07.

Principal Randy Paulson thanked those who helped put together the holiday concert, which was a huge success. Also, Paulson congratulated the varsity football team for a great season including the state run.

Principal Craig Ihrke also thanked those involved with the holiday concert for the elementary. Ihrke explained that MCA testing dates have been set and will be earlier than last year. Testing dates are also spread out this year as he and the teachers feel that students will have less test anxiety and will be able to focus better if the testing is spread out into smaller portions.

The MCA test dates are:

•5th/6th Grade Reading – Week of March 31

•3rd/4th Grade Reading – Week of April 7

•5th Grade Math – Week of April 14

•3rd/6th Grade Math – Week of April 21

•4th Grade Math – Week of April 28

Consent items approved included Jaden Glenzinski as assistant speech coach, resignation of Paul Wagner as elementary Math Wizard advisor, resignation of Jerry Chase as 7th grade football coach, resignation of Jerry Chase and Tyler Chase as 7th grade baseball coaches, and resigation of Troy Swancutt as varsity volleyball coach.

The Chatfield district will be hosting 400-500 teachers from six different districts on January 20 at the elementary for a technology workshop. The next regular school board meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, January 21, 2014. This meeting will include the board’s organizational meeting.
