Thank Special Ed Students For Planting Flowers At Village Hall

Issue Date: July 19, 2018

A letter from the Village of Wausaukee thanking the special education students and teachers Ms. Kim Dalberto and Mrs. Becky Whitton for planting flowers at the Village Hall was read at the start of the Wausaukee School Board's monthly meeting on Wednesday, July 11. The letter said the students did a fantastic job and the village is looking forward to purchasing flowers from the special education program in the future.

A second thank you card was submitted by Donna Pintarelli thanking the board for expressions of sympathy on the passing of her mother.

A notice of denial was received from the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development in regard to a grant request submitted by the school district. The notice indicated that denial was due to the fact that more focus had been placed on installation than on equipment purchase.

Prior to the start of the 6 p.m. regular meeting the board met in a brief work session to discuss current and new compensation models.

Elementary Principal, Katey Ambrose, who also served as Summer School Principal, started her report by giving the historic enrollment numbers from the the past three years of summer school. In 2016, 50 student were enrolled and eight courses were offered. In 2017, 106 students were enrolled and 17 courses were offered. For the summer of 2018, 94 students were enrolled and 15 courses were offered, with an average of 90% attendance. Ambrose said this year, for the first time, summer school collaborated with the Wausaukee Public Library. She said the partnership was a huge success.

Superintendent, Bob Berndt happily reported that the district received a $18,631 grant from the National School Lunch Program Equipment Assistance Program. The funds will purchase a stationary kettle along with a new milk cooler.

Berndt said the District has also received two gracious sponsorships to help fund conversion of the welding and automotive lab. One donor was Team Industries in Kaukauna which pledged $5,000 and the other donor was Witt Ford in Crivitz who pledged $25,000.

In his annual transportation report Berndt said the district remains under contract with Lamers Bus Lines through the 2019 school year. He said the school is pleased with the service and communication with Lamers Bus Lines. Fuel costs were up based on the past 2 years, mostly due to increase prices at the pump, Berndt said.

Berndt provided the Board with exit survey results from staff members who left the District this past school year.

On, Tuesday, June 26th the District went through a raffle license audit and was deemed in compliance after a full review.

The Board approved Wisconsin Association of School Boards membership for 2018/2019.

A number of bids were reviewed and awarded for the coming school year. The gasoline/diesel bid went to Exxon Quik Stop, the milk bid was awarded to Dean Foods of Wisconsin, the trash/recycling bid was awarded to Waste Management and the snow plowing/removal contract was awarded to J&R Enterprises of Wausaukee, LLC.

All seven of the overnight field trips proposed for the 2018/2019 school year were approved. These include trips to Fine Arts in Milwaukee, EAA Museum in Oshkosh, Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, Camp Bird, the senior class trip, ice fishing tournaments and a lock-in that takes place in the elementary school.

Teacher, Support Staff and Administrative Handbooks for 2018/2019 were all approved with minimal modification from previous years.

Resignation of part-time custodian Lenny Lutzow was approved, along with expressions of thanks for his service to the District.

The District welcomes Matt Robinson as halftime early childhood special education teacher, Beth Meyers as a 6th grade teacher and Amanda Seyer as the speech-language pathologist for the 2018/2019 school year, and is welcoming back Megan Graetz as a 3rd grade teacher.

A student activity accounts and purpose document was approved by the Board. The document includes a list of proposed fund raising activities and communicates Board policy and procedures regarding each activity in writing to student organizations and parent groups.

Beginning in the 2017/2018 school year, "Meet and Confer" open meetings were organized to help increase communication between staff members and the Board of Education. The Board agreed to continue this for the 2018/2019 school year. Approved meeting dates were Wednesday, October 17, Wednesday, January 16, and Wednesday, April 17. The meetings are scheduled to take place in the media center from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.

Under bylaw and policy updates, 15 polices were either added or updated to comply with new state regulations and state statutes. The youth options program policy was rescinded, since the program has been replaced by the Start College Now/Early College Credit Program.

The Board convened into closed session to discuss administrative contracts, which were approved after the board reconvened to open session before adjourning.
