                                                Schulz, Jill Glenn, Rachel Lewey, and Allan Eckelman
         Director Brinkopf moved, Director Pagel seconded, to approve the agenda as presented. Motion carried
unanimously.
         IASB Legislative Action Priorities were discussed. Director Hassman moved, Director Larsen seconded,
to submit the following resolutions in the following order;
         1) #11—Supports setting allowable growth at a rate that encourages continuous school improvement and
              reflects actual cost increases experienced by school districts and AEAs. Our priority is to increase and
              maintain the state cost per pupil and the spending authority associated with it to build a strong base for
              future education resources.
         2) #6 – Supports funding to ensure all 3- and 4- year-olds have access to a high quality public school
              preschool program, and allow 4- year olds to be included in the enrollment count, if those programs
              can demonstrate meeting the collaboration and quality standards requirements of the state voluntary
              preschool program. Also, we support the full-weighting of preschool students enrolled in full-time
              programs. IASB supports local district spending authority in the event of a future state spending
              reduction.
         3) #7 – Supports continuation of sufficient incentives for and assistance to encourage sharing,
              reorganization or regional high schools to expand academic learning opportunities for students and to
              improve student achievement. IASB supports expansion of sharing incentives to include special
              education, curriculum and other critical administrative positions. The incentives must be available to
              districts regardless of geographic proximity to each other.
         4) #27 – Opposes changes to labor and employment laws unless they:
              • Advance excellence and equity in public education with the outcome of
              improved student achievement for all.
              • Are based in sound research and proven best practices with a demonstrated
              positive impact on improving student
              achievement.
              • Promote accountability by all for improved student outcomes.
              • Include adequate resources provided by the state without a shift from other
              education resources or significant burden on property taxpayers.
              • Include a regular evaluation of the impact of changes on student achievement.
              • Balance the rights of the employees with the rights of management with scales
              tipped in favor of student achievement and student safety.
              • Require arbitrators to first consider local conditions and ability to pay; once the
              arbitrator determines the district has the ability to pay, the arbitrator should
              determine comparability.
              • Include a requirement that arbitrators demonstrate understanding of Iowa
              education funding and educational improvement.
              • Provide management with the flexibility to pay market competitive wages for
              shortage area positions, especially in the areas required to meet graduation
              and Iowa Core Curriculum mandates.
         5) #30 – Opposes unfounded mandates.
Motion carried unanimously.

less than 1/3 of the costs at each building.” and on page 4 under Handbook: “All hearings will be conducted by the

administration and Board of Directors where the student attends classes. A decision will be made by a majority vote
of that Board of Directors. The school districts agree to make every effort, when adjusting their current disciplinary
codes, school policies, student fees, and calendars to make them as uniform as possible.
 2) Expenditure and Proration Calculation. (General Fund) - The three expenditures (sharing certified employee
cost, coaching and athletic/activity cost, and instructional supplies and materials cost) shall be determined.
Proration for each District will be calculated from the student population at the middle school (grades 6-8) or the
high school (grades 9-12) as determined on the third Friday of September each year. The middle school/high school
proration will be determined by dividing the individual District’s population at the middle school or high school by

Food Service Committee works at the high school. Mrs. Moine discussed that the salad bar at the elementary was
working very well. Discussion was held about the low balance notifications from Infinite Campus.

purpose of conferences was being met and because of the tri-mester schedule should the timing be changed.
Elementary and middle school conferences are scheduled while high school is open for parents to come when they
can. Discussion was held about scheduling conferences at the high school, requiring students to attend conferences
with parents, issuing a grade to the student for a parent-teacher conference, and if conferences are a useful use of
time.

of texting on students. Mrs. Moine discussed steps the elementary is taking to address the issue of handwriting and
spelling. Mrs. Glenn discussed that spelling and grammar are emphasized in the language and literature area with
other areas working on it but looking more at content. Mr. Eckelman expressed that spelling and grammar are
addressed in content area at the high school level. Discussion was also held about the use of cell phones in the
classroom and concerns of bullying and harassment using cell phones.

have not completed the requirements to graduate but are eligible for a certificate of attendance.

Pederson has investigated this previously. It was felt that the area we are in was marginal for any savings and there
is a concern of where it could be placed.

field. The board held discussion concerning what they are going to do about storage if the old jr. high is closed,

program, and annual improvement goals.
