School board hears presentation on clay target team

By Staff | Dec 15, 2017

Rugby High School clay target team coach Randy Knain expects more youths could be competing in clay target shooting.

“The word’s out,” Knain said Tuesday morning while giving an update to the Rugby Public School District No. 5 Board of Education during a regular meeting.

Knain said there were 900 students, counting Rugby, taking up clay shooting last year, and 634 shooters were at the state tournament in Horace.

On the Rugby team six boys and four girls made conference leaderboards, and Seth Jaeger emerged as a top shooter.

Other actions

– Superintendent Mike McNeff informed the board that the district received a rapid enrollment grant. On Sept. 10 the district had 30 more students than it had at the same time last year.

– The board approved the second reading of changes to the district’s substitute teacher payment policy. After five continuous days, substitute teachers may be paid the “base amount” paid to regular staff at the principal’s discretion. The daily rate would be determined by the base payment from the “current Negotiated Agreement” divided by 183 days.

– The board discussed the school finance and budget process as a board education item; AdvanceED report; data included on the N.D. Department of Public Instruction’s interactive dashboard; and making the school’s website compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

– The board approved the consent agenda, which included November meeting minutes, bills payable and financial reports.
