­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­ Administrative Reports

Amy Shalla, Principal for the Alternative Learning Center (ALC) and Administrator for the Special Education program in the District, shared and spotlighted some of the items and issues for the ALC.  She provided an overview of the standards for the ALC, expectations and graduation requirements.  Individual paced classes and group classes are offered for students in the program.  Summer school has been offered since 2006 for MPHS students.  For the 2017-2018 ALC Program: 21 students on the 1st day of school; as of today there are 16 students enrolled.  She provided collective statistics on these students.  The board asked questions about the program and trends Shalla sees within the District.  There are 50 graduates of the program since 2006.  Shalla then discussed the Special Education Program in the District.  Included in the overview:  Alternative Assessments and IEP diploma, the latter is winding down with no new students entering the IEP diploma program; Working in 4 PLUS Programs including VITAL through Kirkwood, though VITAL has changing requirements, Shalla also shared about  the High School Coffee Shop is in the works thanks to a Riverboat Foundation grant in late 2017.

Principal Jay Strickland presented an update for the High School. Highlights included:  On January 16th the High School is going to conduct Real Colors Training for all students; and the commitment to connect with students and establishment of relationships—this is being measured through an all school survey;

Principal Robin Foster presented an update for East Elementary.  Highlights included: sharing of some challenges with the integrated elementary buildings, these efforts are definitely a work in process, recently a survey was conducted of the teams to see how teams are functioning and using these to set expectations for teams as they meet and working to set a common vision within teams;

Principal Marc Pennington presented an update for the Middle School.  Highlights included:  Project Lead the Way presentations are underway this week; Boys basketball has 60 athletes participating; Thirty loads of clothing came in during the clothing drive; and Middle School conducted the “Mixed up Day” to encourage interactions between all students during the lunch periods in December;

Principal Bill Poock presented an update for West Elementary and the District’s Preschools.  Highlights included: Elementary Schools are preparing for mid-year assessments for Reading and Math; and Engagement Strategist, Melissa Rediger is helping to set up the West Elementary Maker Space and the SeeSaw program, Rediger also uses a virtual scavenger hunt with her Kindergarten classes.

Bus Specifications/Set Date and Time for Public Hearing

Business Manager Jeff Swartzentruber in the absence of Superintendent Schneider recommended the purchase of two new school buses to the board for purchase in late June for the 2018-19 School Year.  These propane powered buses will replace two existing buses that are reaching their useful life.  Doing so will keep our current fleet up to date.  Specifications for the new buses have been provided to the Board.  A Public Hearing is proposed for January 22, 2018—the next School Board Meeting—at 8 p.m. to allow for public input and comment on the specifications.  Request for Bids will then be sent with Bid Opening Scheduled for February 2, 2018 after 1 p.m.

George Schaefer moved to set a Public Hearing at 8:00pm on January 22, 2018 at the Library of Mid-Prairie High School for the purpose of reviewing the proposed specifications, form of contract, and estimated costs for two school buses with the bid action to occur on February 2, 2018.  Marianne Schlabach seconded the motion.    Motion carried 6-0.

Instructional Support Levy Discussion

Superintendent Schneider shared that the Instructional Support Levy currently in place for the District will expire at the end of the 2018-2019 School Year.  The Board asked questions and began to educate themselves about this process.  Further discussion is requested before taking action.  Appreciation was expressed for being proactive in starting this process earlier rather than later.
