MINUTES OF SPECIAL MEETING

FORT TOTTEN SCHOOL DISTRICT

May 15, 2008

A special meeting of the board of Fort Totten School District No. 30 was held at 4:30 p.m. on May 15, 2008 at the library at the Four Winds Community School. Present were Erich Longie, Marty Greywater and Galen Robertson. Raymond Cavanaugh and Derrick Dauphinais were absent.

Others present were Stephanie Anderson, Rick Smith, Lois Leben, Doug Yankton, Brian Pearson, Bernadette Brown, Paul Yankton, Curtis Walking Eagle, Mona Chaske, Mary Ann Blackbull, Art Carmona, Carissa Azure Smith, Devonne Robertson, Dancia Jackson, Darcy Delorme and Sandy Joramo.

Dr. Longie, board president, called the meeting to order at 4:40 p.m. Roll call was taken.

REQUEST FOR CHARTER BUS: Warwick Public School put in a request with the tribal council to use the charter bus for their FCCLA program to go to Minneapolis, Minn. Rick Smith stated that the charter bus is booked by the Four Winds Elementary School on the date that Warwick School is requesting to use the bus. The elementary school is using it to go to Stump Lake. Who gets preference? The Spirit Lake Tribal Council stated the elementary school did not need to use the charter bus to go such a short distance. Warwick School should get to use the bus since it is further away. Discussion was held between the Spirit Lake Council, Tate Tribal School, Fort Totten Public School District No. 30, and representatives from the Warwick School regarding who actually owns the bus. The Four Winds Community School Boards assumed that the Spirit Lake Casino, Spirit Lake Tribal Council and Sioux Manufacturing Corporation donated the money to them for the charter bus. The Warwick School representatives stated that at a general assembly, Mr. Carl McKay stood up and said he was only going to donate the money for a charter bus if it was for the Spirit Lake Nation Community.

Mr. Robertson said that the schools would let Warwick School use the charter bus but their school is using it on those dates. Dr. Longie stated that maybe all the entities could come to a compromise, which would be that the Warwick School would get to use it this time but following this the Four Winds Community School Boards would get together and set a procedure on the utilization of the charter bus.

Mr. Robertson made a motion, seconded by Mr.

Greywater, to follow the charter bus schedule with the Four Winds Elementary School using the charter bus on May 19 and 20, 2008. Further discussion was held. Roll call vote taken. Mr.

Robertson and Mr. Greywater in favor. Dr. Longie opposed. Two absent. The motion carried.
