Open Forum:  

Shannon Wiercinski, Jr. High teacher at Paw Paw presented to the board a request from a parent of a Jr. High student to start an Academic Bowl team at the Jr. High level.  They would start in January and they would have to work around the girls’ basketball schedule, the Board asked Mrs. Wiercinski if she would sponsor them if the board approved this request?  She answered yes she would be able and do the High School also.  She was asking the board for $200 dollars for the entry fee and how far could they travel for these meets, if Board approved?  The Board thanked her and would take it under advisement.

Toni Pierce spoke on behalf of A.C.T.S.  She was there to ask the Board’s permission if the ACTS group could hold a Donkey Basketball game in the High School gym in March of 2016.  Basketball would be finished by then and baseball would have not started.  The fee to the public would be $9 or $11.  This would be a big plus for ACTS, with the workers being from the ACTS group.  The Board thanked her and would take it under advisement.  

Items for Discussion:

Old Business 

Discussion of Bus Route Stop for Wabansi Trail – the transportation committee met and therefore gave their recommendation that the bus should no longer stop at Wabansi Trail.  They are not in the radius that dictates bus stop, and they have sidewalks now.

Discussion of Bus Route Pay – CS

Discussion on Athletic Policy for Varsity Playing Times – the Athletic Committee gave their recommendation to not go against the coach, they are there to field the best team at the varsity level.

New Business 

Annual Financial Report (AFR) – Mr. Adcock spoke on this, that WIPFLi held their audit of our books and gave their findings.  Each board member got a copy of their report.  Basically what it said were things we always get written up for that because we are a small district, and we do not do because we are so small.

Approve Amended Treasurer Report for June 2015 – WIPFLi recommended that some items were not coded in the proper place and therefore we have to amend the report for June to reflect those changes.   

Approve Request from Freshman Class for Facility Use – Freshman Class is asking permission to hold their annual Spaghetti dinner in December and to use the cafeteria/kitchen.

Approve Teacher Seniority List – this is approved by you this time each year, Emmy has completed a seniority list.

Approve Retirement Request – CS

Approve Resignations, Extra-curricular Positions and Volunteer - CS

Principal’s Report:  

Mr. Schneider was unable to be here so his board report was in the packet.

Superintendent’s Report: 

He attended two different conferences last week.  Mr. Adcock sat down with the Levy people and he got a few pointers on filling out the levy for the district. 

Mr. Adcock informed the board that Kern Lawn Care did a bid for snow removal at a cost of $495 for snow removed from the sidewalks and entrances.  It does not include salting and parking lots. 

The tractor that is replacing our current tractor is due to be delivered on Friday from Holland and Sons, Mendota.  

The new buses, that were ordered last spring, are due to be delivered the last week in October, supposedly!

Happy School Board Member Day!
