BOYER VALLEY COMMUNITY SCHOOLS BOARD OF DIRECTORS - REGULAR MEETING – June 15, 2022 6:00 P.M. – BOYER VALLEY SOUTH CALL TO ORDER: President Steve Puck called the regular meeting of the Boyer Valley Board of Education to order at 6:03 p.m. Members answering roll call were Paul Cogdill (via telephone), Jen Miller, Steve Puck and Candace Ueding. Directors Hansen, Heistand and Malone were absent. Administrators present: Supt. Kurt Brosamle, Principal Mike Weber and Secretary Terra Sell. Visitors present: List on file at the Business Office. Secretary Sell read the mission statement. APPROVAL AGENDA/MINUTES: Motion by Miller, second by Heistand to approve the agenda as published with the addition of Discussion Items – Insurance Payment, Pest Control and Operational/Staff Sharing and Action Items – Pest Control and Booster Club Requests and minutes from previous board meetings. Motion carried 4-0. President Puck thanked Mr. Weber and Supt. Brosamle for all their years of service to the district and wished them luck in their future endeavors. PRINCIPAL’S REPORT: Mr. Weber reported that summer school was going well. Mrs. Branning is teaching the class, there are 10 students signed up and 8/9 of them are showing up regularly. SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT: Mr. Brosamle reported on the following: the custodians are currently all working in the Dunlap building working on cleaning floors and carpet, they will then all go to the Dow City building to do the same. The gyms will be closed starting July 5th (BVN) and July 8th (BVS) so that the new floor coating can be applied on July 13th. Andy has been doing a good job of getting vehicles ready for our prior to school inspection. Staff has been doing PowerSchool training and a group of staff went to Avoca for teacher clarity training. Mr. Brosamle would like to begin on staff scheduling. The quiz bowl team went to Chicago for Nationals and qualified for finals, which was done via zoom last weekend. They tied with a small school in Pennsylvania; this Saturday is the tiebreaker. He stated the board needs to address the after prom incident as it is still a hot topic in the community. DISCUSSION: Teaching positions: currently our open positions are: HS English, 6-12 P.E. and MS Math/Computer Instructor. Offered an English position, which might be taught online, need to consider $10k per period. Physical education – the elementary P.E. instructor might need to do ½ time elementary and ½ time MS/HS. Math/computer – there is an individual agreed to do it starting 2nd semester as they have to do student teaching the 1st semester. Sick Leave Payout: Mr. Brosamle stated he sent an email out with possible scenarios, there were no questions regarding his email. Work Comp/P&C Insurance: Mark Brasel with the Hoffman Agency provided the district with the premiums for 2022-23 for workman’s compensation and property/casualty. Many districts have seen large spikes in premiums, as well as deductibles. Our current deductible is $1,000; by increasing our deductible to $5,000 it reduces the property/casualty premium by $10k. Workman’s comp premium also went down. Overall, our premiums for the 2022-23 school year will actually be roughly $1,500 less than this current year. Pest Control: Rogers Pest Control is who the school had for many years; he retired and Plunkett Pest Control took over services; however, their service is not as good. Clark Pest Control is a local business in Logan and although the price is slightly higher Mr. Brosamle believes we will receive better service. Operation/Staff Sharing: Woodbine contacted us regarding operational sharing agreement; the biggest concern is Curriculum Director. Mr. Brosamle doesn’t feel this contract would be beneficial for us, it might cost us more than what we’d receive for services. The other positions agreed upon would get us up to 18 out of a possible 21. Sarah Malone wrote a letter stating she would provide Librarian services as a consultant, she is familiar with our operations and it is cheaper than having the AEA provide services. OPEN FORUM: Bud Dunham addressed the board and thanked Mr. Weber and Mr. Brosamle for all their service to the district and wished them luck in the future. He mentioned he agreed with Mr. Brosamle that the after prom incident needs addressed, as the district has lost two students who have open enrolled out because of it. He apologized to Mr. Brosamle for the treatment he has endured over the last year from some staff and other members of the district; he did not deserve it and asked he not hold it against the district when he leaves. CONSENT AGENDA: Motion by Ueding, second by Miller to approve the consent agenda as presented. Motion carried 4-0. APPROVE MAJOR PURCHASES: Mr. Brosamle stated he had no major purchases at this time and is still waiting on government pricing for a suburban. APPROVE PERSONNEL: Motion by Ueding, second by Miller to approve the resignations of Julie Malone – Asst.
