Other Business

Expenditure/Budget Update:We have a total budget of about $82,000 with the carryover from last year. We have budgeted $81,000 for this year’s School Improvement Plan. We have in the budget $11,000 to send teachers to a conference, Matt has since found out we have Title 1 money that can be used for that instead. Matt suggested that we use that $11,000 for electronics. We are short in a few of the grades on chromebooks, so this could help fill in the gaps. We are still working on a Personal Electronic Agreement to be sent home with the students.

Fall Elections and Open Positions: We welcomed our two new council member, Kate Clayton and Lannis Christensen.
