Secondary Principal/AD Report: Mr. Cassens informed the board of the upcoming events and then told the board that the process of 2014-2015 class registration will begin in February TAP and Advisory periods. The board inquired on the possibility of earlier start times for District BB Tournaments.  Cassens stated he would look into it but said it was unlikely. Cassens said explanations of official rulings will be printed on the programs of home events again and the sports schedules for next year are 99% complete at this time.  The discussion of a shot clock in basketball was brought up and Cassens stated this is an AA and A school rule now and he could foresee that requirement for B schools within the next 2 years and wanted to make the board aware of that possible expense. 

 

Superintendent’s Report: Joel Price. Articulation Agreement. Mr. Price provided the board with an articulation agreement with Lake Area Technical Institute (LATI) that explained which HS courses could be articulated into credits at LATI. He stated all technical institutes have different requirements and the board of regents requires the instructor to have a master’s degree.  Standard Based Report Cards. Mr. Price explained the advantages and disadvantages of moving to a standard based report card with the board. He stated Mrs. Hammond is currently using this method in her class and said all of the elementary could possibly start using this in the Fall 2015. Mr. Price and 1-2 teachers will attend a training seminar on it this year.  Legislative & Funding Update. Price gave an update on SB 63 & SB 64 and urged board members to contact their legislators about concerns. He also stated the original 3% Gov. Daugaard proposed is still in place with no opposition but there is still a house bill to raise the ADA up to $4,805 (where it was 4 years ago) out there. Testing.  Mr. Price then covered the Smarter Balance and Dakota STEP testing schedule for this year with the board.
