Rugby Public School District #5,

Board of Education, held a regular

board meeting Tuesday, September

8, 2020 at 7:00 AM in the Library at

Rugby High School.

Board members present were Dustin

Hager, Kris Blessum, Shane

Livedalen, Carlie Johnson, and

Brenda Heilman.

Also present were Mike McNeff,

Jared Blikre, Jason Gullickson, and

Dawn Hauck. In addition, the follow-

ing were in attendance: Karleen

Blessum.

Chairman Hager called the meeting

to order at 7 AM.

Motion by Heilman to approve the

agenda. Second by Johnson. All

voting yes, motion carried.

The FY21 Budget Hearing was held.

Dr. McNeff gave a review of the FY

2021 Budget. Enrollment is up

roughly 13 students from last year.

There was a 2% increase to the

state aid per pupil payment putting it

at $10,036/student. The school dis-

trict is now off the state funding for-

mula and is relying on the transition

minimum for state funding purposes.

This is due to the increase in past

student counts from Wolford School

District. The district will remain on

this transition minimum until the dis-

trict enrollment increases or the per

pupil payment increases. Taxable

value has been affected due to the

addition of the land from Wolford

School District. The anticipated mill

levies are 82 mills in the General

Fund which includes the required 60

mills, plus 12 mills Miscellaneous,

plus 10 mills Discretionary. There is

a 3 mill Special Reserve Levy, a 5

mill Building Fund Levy plus 0.25

mills for Special Assessments, and

21 mills for the Sinking and Interest

Levy.

Mr. Gullickson gave the elementary

report. Included in the report were

the following items: Enrollment is

currently about 319 students with 14

being enrolled in the virtual

academy. The staff and students are

having lunch in their rooms so

reduce transition and contact times.

Phy-Ed is also being held outside.

Social distancing, hand washing,

and sanitizing measures are in

place. Gates have been installed

and are ready to use to close the

street once the alley re-routing work

has been completed. MAP testing is

the benchmark for Reading and

Math for grades 1-6. This bench-

mark assessment will be completed

this week. There are 30 girls in the

5th and 6th grade basketball pro-

gram. Picture day is the 15th. Last

Friday was the first Friday of off-site

learning for the year. Teachers are

using their Friday time for learning

the new Phonics and Reading

Mastery curriculums.

Mr. Blikre gave the high school re-

port. Included in the report were the

following items: Blikre noted how it

is good to have students back in the

buildings. MAP testing is underway

for students in grades 7-12. Picture

day is the 24th. Homecoming will be

held next week. There will be coro-

nation and a parade, but there will

be no bonfire, dance, or powder puff

football. Currently there are 281 stu-

dents enrolled with 11 enrolled in the

virtual academy.

Dr. McNeff gave the District report.

Included in the report: The virtual

academy currently has 29 students

enrolled. Their classes start this

week. Ashley Seykora will oversee

the curriculum and content for the

students through Arizona State

University. The district will pay the

tuition costs. There are five stu-

dents that may need a different cur-

riculum due to their needs. There

were two food service employees

and one custodian hired for support

staff. The Health and Safety Plan

has been followed as there have

been 5 staff members and 15 stu-

dents that either tested positive for

COVID-19 or were close contacts.

All staff and students should be back

this week. Contract tracing is being

done by McNeff in conjunction with

the County Health Nurse, Sam

Wentz. Spectators at

extra-curricular events is limited to

immediately family only. There have

been many technology issues as the

year starts. The district was given

1,000 more IP’s to help with the

volume of streaming and internet

use. In addition, about $70,000

worth of switches will need to be re-

placed very soon to help with other

issues as the old ones are going

bad. The Bank of North Dakota has

$30 million from the CARES Act that

may be dispersed to ND schools.

McNeff is on the committee to deter-

mine how the money will be given to

the schools.

Mrs. Hauck reviewed the financial

report. Each fund was reviewed.

State aid revenue has increased be-

cause the district is now reliant on

the transition minimum due to the in-

crease in past Wolford students.

The district was notified last week

that the USDA has extended the

free breakfast and lunch program

with the Summer Food Service Pro-

gram through December 31, 2020 or

until funds run out. This means all

students in preschool through grade

12 will receive free breakfast and

lunch. The district is still requesting

that families fill out the free/reduced

meal form since their status would

then take effect beginning in January

2021. Also, the student count for

free/reduced meals affects many

funding amounts for the district in-

cluding Title money from the Federal

Government.

Items in the consent agenda were

considered. Motion by Johnson to

approve the Consent Agenda with a

word change to the minutes with

Wednesday changing to Thursday.

Second by Heilman. Included in the

consent agenda were the August 11,

2020 Board Meeting Minutes, the

August Board Bills, the August

Board bills detail, and the August

Financial Reports. All voting yes,

motion carried.

The first reading for the new super-

intendent evaluation procedure was

held. The survey portion will contin-

ue. There will be a formative as-

sessment completed by the board in

November using supporting docu-

mentation from the survey. There

will be a summative assessment in

March. The school board president

will handle the communication for

the evaluation. Motion by Blessum

to approve the first reading. Second

by Livedalen. All voting yes, motion

carried.

The NDSBA conducted a policy re-

view for the school district. Of the

124 policies, about 117 need

changes or actions to correct them.

McNeff would like a small committee

to review the recommended

changes and the final changes

would be brought to the board for

approval. Blessum and Heilman

agreed to be on the committee.

The board reviewed the Annual

Compliance Report stating the dis-

trict is in compliance with statutory

requirements. Motion by Heilman to

approve the Annual Compliance Re-

port. Second by Johnson. All voting

yes, motion carried.

The NDSBA Convention will be held

virtually this year. They are only

offering the New Member Seminar

and School Law Seminar this year.

The School Law Seminar will be

held in 1-1.5 hour sessions over the

course of five days, October 26-30.

Each staff registration is $100 with

the board members being free with a

staff registration. Hauck will register

all board members and they can at-

tend sessions as they are able.

The next regular board meeting will

be Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at

Rugby Public School District #5,

Board of Education – Policy Com-

mittee, held a meeting Thursday,

September 24, 2020 at 7:00 AM in

Dr. McNeff’s office at Rugby High

School.

Committee members present were

Kris Blessum, Brenda Heilman, Mike

McNeff, and Dawn Hauck.

The Committee reviewed the poli-

cies that NDSBA recommended to

rescind. Dr. McNeff discussed that

he would rather not rescind the

Reduction in Force policy as that fits

our district better than the recom-

mended policy. NDSBA recom-

mended that the handbooks be tak-

en out of policy and maintained in a

separate area.

The Committee reviewed NDSBA’s

recommendations for required board

policies. Some policies were

changed slightly, but most policies

were not changed. A policy regard-

ing Extra-Curricular Participation Re-

quirements was tabled until more

discussion is held with principals

and the athletic director.

The adjusted policies will be brought

to the October 13, 2020 board meet-

ing.

The next policy committee meeting

will be held on October 1, 2020, at

7:00 AM.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:45

Kris Blessum, Brenda Heilman, Mike

McNeff, and Dawn Hauck.

The Committee reviewed 42 policies

that NDSBA recommended to adopt.

Dr. McNeff discussed that he would

rather not adopt the Reduction in

Force policy as our current policy fits

our district better than the recom-

mended one. The curriculum policy

will also not be recommended for

adoption.

The Committee reviewed NDSBA’s

recommendations for policy pro-

cedures. Some policies were

changed slightly, but most policies

were not changed. The committee

recommended a handout be created

for audience members regarding au-

dience participation during the

school board meetings.

The adjusted policies will be brought

to the October 13, 2020 board meet-

ing.

There will be another policy com-

mittee meeting after the board meet-

ing.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:35

AM.

NOTICE

Rugby Public School District #5,

Board of Education, held a special

board meeting Wednesday, October

7, 2020, at 7:00 AM in the Library at

Rugby High School.

The purpose of the special meeting

was to provide an update on close

contacts and Face Coverings and to

update fan expectations for activi-

ties.

Board members present were Kris

Blessum, Dustin Hager, Carlie John-

son, Brenda Heilman, and Shane

Livedalen.

Also present were Michael McNeff,

Jason Gullickson, Jared Blikre, and

Dawn Hauck.

Chairman Hager called the meeting

to order at 7:00 AM.

Motion by Johnson to approve the

agenda. Second by Livedalen. All

voting yes, motion carried.

On October 1, 2020, Governor Bur-

gum announced that if two people

are within six feet of one another in

the K-12 setting, both are wearing

face coverings, and one comes

down with COVID-19, the other par-

ty is not required to quarantine due

to the face coverings. Administration

is wondering if a continual mask

mandate would be something the

board would like to adopt with this

new state policy. The students and

staff have been doing very well at

wearing their masks in the hallways,

but the classrooms are harder to

monitor and to keep six feet apart.

Many of the board members felt that

a mask mandate would be difficult

with enforcement and also hard for

the students. At the lower elementa-

ry level, students need to see mouth

movement and expressions to learn.

The board recommended that the

current policy be re-affirmed and

possibly re-educated and enforced.

Hager recommended information be

sent home to parents as well.

Dr. McNeff reviewed recommended

changes to the fan expectations at

indoor activities. After discussion, it

is recommended that a voucher sys-

tem be used for admittance into ac-

tivities. There will be 250 vouchers

available for home teams, with each

athlete given 4 vouchers. Students

in grades K-12 would be able to re-

ceive vouchers, however students in

grades K-6 must be accompanied by

an adult. Staff will be allowed

vouchers after students. If any

vouchers remain, the public will be

allowed to purchase them. The

away team will be given 100 vouch-

ers.

Masks will be required whenever a

fan leaves their seat and whenever

they are not socially distanced. This

will be enforced with reminders over

the PA system. Those that refuse to

be in compliance will no longer be

allowed to obtain a voucher. Motion

by Livedalen to approve the recom-

mended fan expectation changes.

Second by Johnson. All voting yes,

motion carried.

It was recommended to put mes-

sages on the vouchers regarding

mask requirements.

The meeting was adjourned at 7:54

AM.
