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.
