The board discussed the direction that the football program will need to go due to numbers and revised NDHSAA football plan. A decision will have to be made in the immediate future whether to open a dialogue with Maddock. The Minnewaukan school board met last week to discuss its concerns with the program.

It was moved, and seconded to pursue discussion with the Maddock School District for forming a football co-op for the 2009/2010 season. After discussion of previous meetings on the subject, a roll call vote was taken: two members were in favor and one was opposed.
The motion carried.

Congratulations to Katrina Lybeck for being named "Commended Student"

The school law seminar is October 25 and the annual School Board convention is Oct 26 and 27. The registration deadline is October 15. Board members available to attend must let Mrs. Benson know by October 12 for rooms and registration.
A motion was made, seconded and carried to approve hiring Susan Braun as elementary aide.
The Board reviewed the NDHSAA by-law amendment. The general consensus is to agree with the recommendation.
Mr. Braaten gave the superintendent’s report: sidewalk in front of shop door; elementary boys’ basketball; junior high girls’ and junior high boys’ basketball coaching positions, new computers; possible tuition agreement.
