Administrative Report:   Progress on District goals has not changed from the end of the year. When the school year begins, the Leadership team will reconvene (after first replacing at least three integral members) and will begin work on a plan to implement, track, and evaluate our progress and success of these goals.

            Contact has been made with PowerSchool and we will begin with product demonstrations and introductions to their system. We have not signed a contract, but the plan is to take the transition slowly so we are able to ensure the new system is % ready to go before final implementation next year.

            Joe Roberts informed us several weeks ago that we were going to have to switch our health insurance plan as our current plan is no longer supported by Blue Cross/Blue Shield. He did say it looks as if we will have a very minimal increase, if any at all, but we are likely to have our deductible increased from $3,000 to $4,000. We will convene an insurance committee meeting to discuss options and how this will affect our current HRA for our members.

            The gym floor was refinished July 9th and is now ready to be used.

            As of Friday, both Emmylou and I have relocated our offices. I am in the old nurse’s station and Emmy is in the old HS principal’s office. Patty will be moved early the week of the 16th and will be located where Sue Johnston was before the RIF. The nurse will now be in the old district office and Eve Phillips will be located in my old office.

            The summer cleaning crew has really been able to dig in deep and get things cleaned that haven’t been touched in years. The buildings are taking shape, both inside and out.

            Zack Kern was notified that we were going to utilize our summer help to mow and Joe McKee began mowing the week before last. We did have a short break between mowing because the tractor needed to have an annual service which had not been done since it was not being used. All is well now and the lawn looks great.

 

Sandra Heiman entered at 6:25 P.M.

 

Enclosures:  None

     

Additional:  Kristel Schlorff asked if the high school sports schedule could be put on our calendar and not just a link to the Indian Creek athletic calendar.

            Renee Katschke asked if a plan was in place for sports transportation. Mr. Adcock stated that when school was in session that students would be transported for sports. The Board agreed that a shuttle was needed for the sports practices that take place before school starts.

 

Closed Session:

 

Kristel Schlorff, seconded by Sandra Heiman, made a motion to adjourn to closed session at 6:32 P.M. for the purpose of discussing employment, compensation, discipline, performance or dismissal of specific employees; student disciplinary case, and other matters related to individual students; collective bargaining; and for the purpose of discussing litigation when an action against, affecting, or on behalf of the particular public body has been filed and is pending before a court or administrative tribunal (5 ILCS 120/2 (c)(1)) at 7:36 P.M.

            Motion passed unanimously by a roll call vote 6-0.
