Items for Discussion

 

  • Old Business 

     1.   Discussion of Attorney Qualifications – CS

 

  • New Business 
  • Approval of Senior Class Trip – Ashley Delhotal and William Zeman handed out the agenda for the Class of 2016 Senior Trip to St. Louis.  They will leave the school on March 21, 2016 and return the evening of March 24, 2016.  They are asking for the use of a school bus, with Daryl Rosenkrans driving and will be a chaperone.  Besides Mr. Rosenkrans, chaperoning will be Niesa Jacobs, senior class sponsor, and Rick Jacobs or Paul Aloisio if Rick cannot attend.  They have already talked to the bank about a “Travel Card” that would allow them to load up to $3000 on it, whatever is not used would be returned to the account.  This will keep chaperones from having to use personal credit cards.  Some of the places that they would visit are the St. Louis Zoo, the Arch and a riverboat cruise, Meramec Caverns, a trampoline park and a visit to Anheuser Busch brewery and stables, not to taste the samples!
  • Approval of Bus Sale – Dunn’s Garage, Shabbona, put in a bid of $800 for Bus #54, which has been decommissioned in our fleet.   This was discussed last month and needs to be approved by the Board.  This is the oldest bus that we own.

Principal’s Report:  

Mr. Schneider was not here tonight.  His board report is in the board packet.

Superintendent’s Report:

Mr. Adcock touched on PARCC testing.  It was done in the schools last spring and they are just now able to access the results.  This is December and students already have a semester completed.  If any students needed to be held back last school year, they were promoted since we didn’t get the results in a timely fashion.

WiFi networking is completed in the building so we should be up and running on the new system.

Senate Bill 100 which has passed in Illinois has to do with discipline.  There will be more on it in the future, but it looks like our teachers will have to take some training in PBIS, Positive Behavior Interventions & Supports.

Mr. Adcock will be bringing the calendar for 2016-17 to the board in January, to review, and vote on in February.  He has asked for input from the teachers.

Enclosures: None

Additional:

Jason Penman gave a review of the meeting of the Athletic Committee.  Amboy is not signing a coop agreement for next school year, they have brought just a couple of soccer players and didn’t see their way to having a soccer program anymore.  The committee discussed the coaches and programs for the fall sports.
