Second by Livedalen. All voting yes,

2020, the ND Governor allowed lim-

ited access to school buildings with

class size limitations and social dis-

tancing requirements. Dr. McNeff

delivered the Long Range Planning

district’s long range planning are the

following: 1. School Culture and

Climate includes Emergency Pro-

cedures, and Social and Emotional

Learning and Student Behavior, 2.

21st Century Readiness and Per-

sonalized Learning, 3. Academic

Engagement and Standards- Refer-

enced Instruction, 4. Professional

Learning and Development, and 5.

Facility Planning includes Ely Ele-

mentary Improvements. The Long

Range Planning Presentation and

report is available on the school’s

website. Mr. Gullickson gave the

elementary report. Included in the

report were the following items: The

custodians have been working on

summer cleaning, which is going

well. Teachers in grades K-2 are re-

viewing samples for a new phonics

curriculum, which will be paid for

with the new Comprehensive Litera-

cy Grant. Enrollment for kindergar-

ten is around 38 children at this

point. Kindergarten, 3rd grade, and

6th grade will each have three

classes. Gullickson is currently

working on class groupings. The

handbooks for the new year have

been printed and are ready for regis-

tration. Students in the Extended

School Year Program have been

participating in a combination of

on-site and online learning. Mr.

Blikre gave the high school report.

Included in the report were the fol-

lowing items: Graduation was held

on May 22nd on the football field. It

was a good day. Driver’s Education

will be done by virtual classroom for

the class part, and the driving por-

tion is being done in groups of two.

Summer work is being conducted

throughout the high school building.

Blikre will be participating in a

PowerSchool scheduling workshop

for setting up the 2020-2021

schedule. A thank you was made to

Jan Hagen, Bill Jansen, Stephanie

Skeen, and Kevin Leier for their ser-

vice. They will not be returning in

their teaching roles next year. Dr.

McNeff gave the District report. In-

cluded in the report: Teacher

Leader Academy was held last week

in the mornings. There are currently

32 students signed up for preschool.

A draft of the Strategic Plan will be

presented to the board on July 14th.

A new grading and reporting

software, Empower, will be piloted

by a few teachers next year. A pro-

fessional development day will be

held on August 5th for technology

learning. NCEC is organizing the

PD Day. The district has been look-

ing at joining a Health Insurance

Consortium, but with everything that

occurred due to COVID-19, the deci-

sion to join has been pushed off for

now. Mrs. Hauck reviewed the finan-

cial report. Each fund was re-

viewed. The General Fund is

currently $153,000 below this same

point last year, but revenue and ex-

penses affect this number daily.

This month, a transfer of $400,000

will be made from the Sinking Fund

to the investment accounts which

will be used to make the $6 million

balloon payment in 2025 for the

RHS remodel project. Items in the

consent agenda were considered.

Motion by Hager to approve the

Consent Agenda. Second by Heil-

man. Included in the consent agen-

da were the May 12, 2020 Board

Meeting Minutes, the May Board

Bills, the May Check Register, and

the May Financial Reports. Second

by Livedalen. All voting yes, motion

carried. The district has reached the

15 mill cap for the Special Reserve

Fund. According to NDCC

57-19-02, any excess funds must

transferred to the district’s General

Fund. The district would like to then

transfer funds to the Building Fund

to cover costs associated with build-

ing renovations, roof repairs, and the

lease of the modular classroom.

Motion by Livedalen to approve the

resolution to transfer $50,174.15

from the Special Reserve Fund to

the General Fund, and to also ap-

prove a transfer from the General

Fund to the Building Fund of

$50,174.15. Second by Blessum.

All voting yes, motion carried. Dr.

McNeff reviewed the request from

the Rugby JDA to renew the Renais-

sance Zone. The Renaissance

Zone defines an area in downtown

Rugby where property owners can

receive property taxes incentives for

renovations done to their businesses

or homes. Motion by Blessum to

approve the renewal request.

Second by Hager. All voting yes,

motion carried. Mrs. Hauck reviewed

information regarding Unclaimed

Property in the district, which in-

cludes uncashed checks. There

were eight checks in the General

Fund ranging from 10/15/2014 to

11/20/2018, totaling $195.69, that

were not cashed. These checks will

be voided and reported to the Un-

claimed Property Division of the

State. There were 10 checks in the

Food Service Fund ranging from

4/15/2015 to 8/31/2018, totaling

$125.80, that were not cashed.

These checks will be voided and re-

ported to the Unclaimed Property

Division of the State. There were 44

checks in the Activities Fund ranging

from 4/3/2014 to 12/14/2018, that

were not cashed. There are 9

checks over the $50 threshold,

which we are contacting. These

vendors have until June 22, 2020 to

respond for a replacement check,

otherwise they will be added to the

total reported to the Unclaimed Pro-

perty Division. Motion by Hager to

approve the voiding of the checks

and reporting to the Unclaimed Pro-

perty Division. Second by Blessum.

All voting yes, motion carried. A

needs assessment was completed

as part of the new Carl Perkins regu-

lations. Carl Perkins provides sup-

port for the CTE programs. McNeff

reviewed the needs assessment.

The assessment shows a lack in

health career courses. The assess-

ment will be submitted to the local

group. Dr. McNeff gave a summer

building update. An agreement has

been made to lease a modular unit

to put on the lot across from Ely. A

building permit was requested from

the City. The street will be closed

between the buildings in the fall. The

alley work and a fence will be con-

structed prior to the closure of the

street. Work will be done on the

preschool building to add another of-

fice. The bathrooms at Ely will get

new partitions. The Ag Shop area

will be getting a new ventilation sys-

tem. There will be RHS roof repair

done over the gym and auditorium

area. Dr. McNeff discussed the Soft

Start Guidelines as given by the

state. No more than 15 people are

allowed in a room, which would in-

clude ESY and athletics. The next

regular board meeting will be Tues-

day, July 14, 2020 at 7:00 AM.

Chairman Johnson adjourned the

meeting at 7:57 AM.
