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

April 14, 2015

The Arbon School Board meet on April 14, 2015 7:00 p.m. members Jason Williams, Melinda Campbell and Jake Evans were present as were Debbie Curry, Robin Claunch and clerk, Cheri Evans.

The motion was moved by Jake and seconded by Jason to approve the agenda. The motion was moved by Jake and seconded by Melinda to approve the minutes. The bills were reviewed. The motion was moved by Jake and seconded by Melinda to approve them. The total M & O expenses for the month of April is $21,982.89. The school received $443.00 from the State Department, $948.80 from property taxes and $11.62 from interest. The school M & O balance is $148,592.66. The Plant Facility received and $3.32 from interest the Plant Facility balance is $46,626.24. The motion was moved by Jason and seconded by Melinda to approve the financial statement.

The teachers went to Boise on April 10th and met with Laurie Wolf to discuss math curriculum for the 2015-2016 school year. She recommended going with Singapore Math along with some training. The Board approved. The teachers will attend a training in Phoenix, Arizona in July for three days. She also recommended two internet based math programs that are already Common Core aligned. Dream Box for K-1st and Ten Marks for 2nd – 6th grades.

Robin and Cheri attended the Post Legislative Tour on April 8th. A lot of changes coming. The SBAC/ISAT II tests are locked in for three years and then the required test will probably be changing. The Standards will probably be changing too. They will be just as or more rigorous than what is in place now. Teacher salaries will increase. We will be getting more funding but a lot of it is not discretionary and can only be spent on specific items.

The Arbon and Crystal Trustee petitions have been turned in. There will be no election because both zones are uncontested. The budget hearing date was set for June 9th. Kade made a list of maintenance items that need to be addressed. The board went over it and agreed they need to start addressing the larger items before they all need repaired at the same time. The hall and restroom floors are number one on the list.

A special meeting was set for April 22nd at 7:00 p.m. to open the contract bus bids and accept one.

The next meeting will be held on May 12, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. The motion was moved and seconded to adjourn the meeting. The meeting adjourned at 9:15p.m.

Approved 05-12-2015
