The bills having been audited and found correct were ordered to be paid. Post payment bills (hand payables) were approved for $11,318.67. Prepayment bills of $55,714.60.

Mrs. Carr talked about the winter sports going well and winding down. Playoffs in mid March. Starting to think about gearing up for spring sports which is projected to only start a week later than normal. The subscription based camera system from Pixellot has been installed. Everything seems to be working well. Discussion was held about adding for football and baseball, but further discussion is needed.
There was discussion on Electronic Learning Days and how that would impact learning when we have weather related school closings. We now have the capability to still have school even though the kids are not in the building.
A recommendation to approve the Waiver of Tenure Contract with Tasha Dahl. Various circumstances have led to the extension. Motion from Pinnock, second Mortenson. Motion carried.
A recommendation to amend the approved Certified Staff Seniority list. Emily Kuzel was inadvertently left off. Motion to approve by Plaine, second by Olsonawski
Superintendent Jaszczak talked about upcoming school calendar items. Prom, class trip and graduation. He was looking for suggestions on what they should do, since dancing may not be a good idea with covid transmission. Also, what the class trip might look like. The East Coast is likely not an option, but they are contemplating other locations such as Yellowstone or the Black Hills. He was open to any further suggestions. Discussion with the students needed to happen first and see what they were wanting to do. The process of having staff members get vaccinated has gone well. All but 4 staff members received. The bus garage is in need of either a significant remodel, or rebuild. But with the cost of building supplies being so high, he isn’t sure what the best course of action would be. He was going to look into costs. The school year is going well with state testing going forward.
Next meeting is March 24th at 8pm
Motion to adjourn Olsonawski, second Pinnock. Motion carried.
