Arbon Valley – The Best Place on Earth
Arbon Valley – The Best Place on Earth Arbon Valley has gone through changes over the past 100 years just like any town has.  However, if you see an old photo of your great-grandpa standing on a street with his field behind him, chances are you could pick out that spot and it would look exactly the same today.  This town is full of rich history as well as kind and honest people.
“Have you ever been down to Arbon Valley ?
I spend a lot of time there in my mind.
And if God doesn’t live in Arbon Valley,
I’ll bet that’s where he spends most of his time.”

ARBON SCHOOL BOARD MEETING

March 11, 2014

The Arbon School Board met on March 11, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. members Jason Williams, Melinda Campbell and Jake Evans were present as were Debbie Curry and clerk, Cheri Evans.

The first hour of the meeting was spent listening to an Affordable Health Care Act presentation by Seamons Financial Corp.  It was geared mainly for individuals.  They did state that there have already been 34 changes to the Act so far. The board has decided to wait awhile before making any major changes or decisions with the insurance the school has now.

The motion was moved by Jake and seconded by Jason to approve the agenda. The motion was moved by Melinda and seconded by Jason to approve the minutes.  The bills were reviewed. The motion was moved by Jason and seconded by Melinda to approve them. The total M & O expenses for the month of March was $21,813.52. The school received $1,179.99 from property and $7.85 from interest on investments. The school M & O balance is $137,160.99. The Plant Facility received $2.24 from interest the Plant Facility balance is $42,997.21. The motion was moved by Jake and seconded by Jason to approve the financial statement.

Jacob has been gone so he has not checked into the issue with Rosetta Stone yet.  April 10th the school will go into American Falls for pictures and then on to Idaho Falls to the Museum of Idaho. IRI & SBAC testing will start in April. The Old Town Actors will be at the school on Friday, April 11th.

There is a hanging light in the gym.  Jake will try and find someone to take care of this.

The spread sheet on teacher duties in addition to teaching was tabled until next month.

The Board adopted a resolution to hold a two year supplemental levy for $50,000.00 each year for a total of $100,000.00 on May 20th.  The school would only receive an additional $300 from the State Department for doing a three year Professional Development Plan. The Board decided the additional money is not worth the paper work.

The next meeting will be held on April 8, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. The motion was moved and seconded to adjourn the meeting.  The meeting adjourned at 9:05 p.m.
