V. WIAA Membership Renewal for 2021-22 (Action Requested)
Description:  Dr. Rauscher will preview the WIAA Membership renewal.  The documents are expected to be sent to the District the first week in June in time for formal approval at the June Regular Board meeting. 
VI. Approve 10-Year Capital Improvement Plan (Action Requested)
Description:  One of the requirements to establish and maintain a Long Term Capital Improvement Trust Fund (Fund 46) is Board approval of a capital improvement plan that is at least ten years in duration. The following motion and presented capital improvement plan fulfills this obligation and offers desired flexibility that will enable the district to leverage this tool to maintain and improve District buildings and grounds.

VII. Transfer from Fund 10 to Fund 46 (Action Requested)
Description:  The District’s Long­-Term Capital Improvement Trust Fund (Fund 46) may only be funded through transfer from the General Fund. Following establishment of such a trust fund in 2016, transfers may be made from the General Fund to Fund 46. With the understanding that any such transferred funds would become available five years from the creation of this fund (during 2021-22), administration recommends an amount of $1,000,000 to be transferred. This amount will be considered a shared cost for 2020-21 for purposes of calculating equalization aid for 2021-22. This will effectively increase shared costs for 2020-21 in a year when shared costs are lower because of the increased dependence on ESSER funds.

IX. School Forest Storage Facility (Action Requested)
Description:  As part of continued School Forest capital improvements, administration seeks approval for replacing several smaller storage sheds at the School Forest with one larger, more functional building.  Funding for this capital improvement would come from the regular capital improvement budget along with the long-term capital improvement trust fund (Fund 46).
