NOTICE

Rugby Public School District #5,

Board of Education, held a regular

board meeting Tuesday, December

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

Rugby High School.

Board members present were Dustin

Hager, Kris Blessum, Carlie John-

son, Shane Livedalen, and Brenda

Heilman was present via Zoom.

Also present were Mike McNeff,

Jared Blikre, Jason Gullickson, and

Dawn Hauck. In addition, the follow-

ing were in attendance: Scott Gro-

chow and Breanne Welk. Heidi

Backstrom and Travis Risovi were

present via Zoom.

Chairman Hager called the meeting

to order at 7:00 AM.

Motion by Livedalen to approve the

agenda. Second by Blessum. All

voting yes, motion carried.

Scott Grochow gave a presentation

on the athletics programs. Atten-

dance at winter season events, ac-

cording to NDHSAA, is recommend-

ed to be 50 home fans only. That

number does not include players,

coaches, statisticians, or other event

staff. When all three squads play,

there will be two tickets given to var-

sity and one ticket given to JV and

C-squad players. When only varsity

and junior varsity play, each player

will be given two tickets. Tickets can

only be used for parents, siblings,

and grandparents. Four tickets will

be given to the administration of the

other team. For Junior High games,

each athlete will be given two tick-

ets.

Mr. Gullickson gave the elementary

report. Included in the report were

the following items: Mrs. Mattson

has been meeting with the 12 lego

league participants once per week.

A competition will be held in Janu-

ary. The 5th grade classes held a

food drive that raised over 900

pounds of food to give to the Pierce

County Food Pantry. The deadline

for evaluations for teachers in their

first three years at the district is De-

cember 15th. There are seven

teachers that fit into this category at

Ely. Mid-year assessments in

English/Language Arts and Math will

begin on January 11th.

Mr. Blikre gave the high school re-

port. Included in the report were the

following items: The first semester

will end on January 15th. There will

be no semester testing time. After

winter break, schedule changes will

begin for the new semester. The

deadline for evaluations for teachers

in their first three years at the district

is December 15th. There are 13

teachers that fit into this category at

RHS. Winter activities have begun.

Competitions can begin December

14th after the governor’s ruling on

the activity break ends. As of yes-

terday morning, only 13 students

were out due to COVID-19. The

numbers are getting much better.

Dr. McNeff gave the District report.

Included in the report were the fol-

lowing items: The Governor release

his budget for the next biennium,

which included 0% and 0% in-

creases for FY22 and FY23 on the

per pupil state aid payment. There

will need to be a big legislative push

to get an increase. The district has

received CARES Act money for the

following grants: Ed Corps Funding

$158,000, Resiliency Grant

$178,000, and ESSER Funds

$115,000. Much of this money will

be used to upgrade the technology

systems to better serve the distance

education students. There is a dis-

cussion about another relief bill for

education. There will be more to

come on this issue. Empower is the

new grading and reporting system.

Fifteen teachers agreed to work with

the system this year to get it ready

for implementation next school year.

Mrs. Hauck reviewed the financial

report. Each fund was reviewed.

The General fund is roughly $85,000

below this same point last year.

There have been many purchases of

personal protection equipment to

help with distancing and sanitizing

due to the COVID-19 pandemic as

well as technology purchases

through the CARES Act grants.

Those funds are received on a reim-

bursement basis, so the expense is

seen before the reimbursement is

obtained. The Sinking Fund current-

ly contains roughly $5 million of the

$6 million balloon payment that is

needed in May 2025. Another

$400,000 transfer will be made in

May 2021 to the fixed investments

that are set aside for the balloon

payment. Items in the consent agen-

da were considered. Motion by Bles-

sum to approve the Consent Agen-

da. Second by Johnson. Included in

the consent agenda were the No-

vember 10, 2020 Board Meeting

Minutes, the November Board Bills,

the November Board bills detail, and

the November Financial Reports. All

voting yes, motion carried.

Mrs. Hauck reviewed the FY20 Final

Audit Report. The same items were

noted in the Finding of the Financial

Statements as have been in the

past. The first finding states that the

auditors assist in creating proper

financial statements and notes. The

second finding states that the district

must provide segregation of duties

as much as possible with the staff

we have. In the management report,

it was noted that there was a student

activity account that was negative.

This will be fixed going forward. A

second observation was that one

employee file did not contain the

employee’s start date. Employee

files will be gone through to ensure

all necessary paperwork is con-

tained in the files. Hager requested

information on the Financial State-

ment Disclosure Checklist as noted

in the first finding of the audit.

Hauck will request information from

the auditors on this issue. Motion by

Johnson to approve the FY20 Final

Audit Report and Management Re-

port. Second by Livedalen. All voting

yes, motion carried.

The board discussed the 2020-2021

School Calendar. Dr. McNeff recom-

mended to continue operating in the

current four day in-person and one

day virtual learning model until the

end of March. Discussion was held

on teacher burn-out if the district

were to go to five days in-person.

Teachers are required to make sure

there the curriculum is ready for both

in-person and online students each

day. Several students in the Virtual

Learning Academy are not doing

well. The district is asking for some

virtual students to return to in-person

learning next semester so they do

not fall behind in their learning. The

end goal is to return to five days of

in-person instruction. Motion by

Blessum to re-evaluate the calendar

in January, look at how the holidays

affected COVID cases, and discuss

the calendar again at the February

board meeting. Second by

Livedalen. All voting yes, motion car-

ried.

Board Member Johnson exited the

meeting at 7:38 AM.

The Winter Activity Spectator Guide-

lines were reviewed. It was dis-

cussed that the district should follow

the guidance provided by NDHSAA

for spectators and if the administra-

tion feels differently, then they can

come to the board at that time. Mo-

tion by Blessum to use NDHSAA

recommendations for spectators un-

less the administration feels dif-

ferently at which time they can bring

concerns to the board. Second by

Livedalen. All voting yes, motion car-

ried.

Dr. McNeff gave a COVID-19 up-

date. New guidance from the CDC

states that close contacts can come

back after seven days if a negative

rapid test is obtained on the 7th day

or after 10 days if there is no test

done and no symptoms. Positive in-

dividuals must still quarantine for 10

days.

Dr. McNeff updated the board on

BINAX testing for that is available for

school staff. Weekly voluntary CO-

VID testing will be available for staff.

It will be self-administered. The

tests will be available in about 2-3

weeks. There is no cost to the dis-

trict for these tests.

A vaccination survey will be going

out to staff members. School per-

sonnel are included in Phase 1b of

the vaccine administration schedule.

It could be available to staff in late

January. The survey is needed to

know how many staff members

would want to receive the vaccine so

Pierce County Health can be

prepared. There are still issues to be

worked out. More information will

come in the next few weeks.

There is a big decline in the number

of quarantined students in the dis-

trict, which is a good sign. The hope

is that this continues but with the

holidays coming up, we could see a

spike in numbers again.

There will be a school policy review

committee meeting on December

16th at 7 AM with Blessum and Heil-

man. The information will be brought

to the January board meeting.

The staff participating in the Teacher

Leader Academy will be presenting

their Action Research Presentations

on December 16th at 3:30 PM. The

board members are asked to attend.

The Negotiations Seminar is

scheduled for February 4-5th. No in-

formation has been provided yet as

to how the seminar will be conduct-

ed. It is a negotiations year so we

will have to pick the negotiations

committee soon.

The next regular board meeting is

scheduled for January 12, 2021.

The meeting was adjourned at 8:10

AM.
