Principals’ reports were reviewed.
A motion was made by Brandvold, seconded by Kenner, to approve a 50 cent per hour pro-rated salary increase for the non-certified staff. On roll call vote, all were in favor.
A motion was made by Lauinger, seconded by Brandvold, to approve the
2005-06 General Fund revenue budget of $1,698,965.01 and expense budget of $1,716,217.30, projecting a deficit of $17,252.29. On roll call vote, all were in favor. Mr. Bubach stated textbook and bus reserve allowances were reduced, but fuel expenses were increased. Following a fall review of the bus routes, Mr. Bubach doesn’t recommend reducing to five afternoon bus routes due to the distances traveled by the six current routes. However, he is looking for ways to reduce extracurricular transportation. Projections of future budget deficits and declining enrollment will mandate a review of all staffing and programs.
Representatives of the Maddock Multi Purpose Building updated the board on the building’s progress to date. Mr. Bubach stated that a contract dialog and building usage plan should begin, with the contract to include a rental agreement. He will contact NDSBA and legal services for further information.
A request from the Adams, Edmore, Starkweather and Munich School Districts regarding participation in a lawsuit demonstrating to the courts that current state legislation is equality-based legislation and not equity-based, was discussed by the board. Mr. Bubach will get more information.
Notification capabilities in the Power Lunch Program were compared to the current food service collection policy. Revising the policy was tabled until further review.
A motion was made by Lauinger, seconded by Ellingson, to approve the district-paid tuition contract with Oberon. On roll call vote, all were in favor.
The district health unit has provided a $250 grant for the installation of signs prohibiting smoking on school property. The prohibition of alcohol will be included on signs for the outlying areas of the school grounds.
Chris Lauinger will represent the school board at NESC meetings.
The next regular meeting will be October 11 at 5 p.m. Meeting adjourned.
Brenda Fossen
Business Manager
