V. Public Comment:
Description:  Welcome to this meeting of the Board of Education Independent School District #695, Chisholm School District. We are extremely pleased that you have shown an interest in school district affairs by attending this meeting. The Board of Education allows public participation at its meeting, but at the same time has the responsibility for conducting its business in an orderly fashion. We will provide the audience with an opportunity to request to speak. We request that before you speak to announce your name. Each speaker will be allowed five minutes unless the time limit is waived by a majority of the board members present. At a public meeting of the board, no person shall orally initiate charges or complaints against individual employees of the district or challenge instructional materials used in the district. All such charges, if presented to the board directly, shall be referred to the Superintendent for investigation and report. We would also like to remind the public that the school board is not allowed to comment on your concerns. If there are no questions, we will open the public comment section of the board meeting.
VI. Reports
VI.A. Superintendent's Report
Description:  Welcome to the New Year and a huge welcome to our new board members. Please remember to contact me any time with any concerns or questions.

It has been an interesting start to the year.

The threat made on SnapChat. The young man did not have access to a gun, had no concerns with anyone or the school, and in fact did not name the school. Social Media and rightful so parents expressed their concerns. We took the concerns seriously and made sure we had extra police presence available. The school has issued an impact statement to the courts. We had over 100 students not attend school on Wednesday and 50 on Thursday. In our impact statement, we showed the cost of these students not being at the school. The statements also talked about the emotional stress put on staff and students.

Renovations with the bond. We will be issuing a call for bids for the various projects we have to get going this summer. The design work is completed and at the Department of Education, so we can move forward with the projects. We are also completing the design work for the entryway at the V/S, We have had several meetings with the architect and are ready to move forward on some of that work.
