V. Public Comment:
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:  We are working on the School Safety Grant requirements. MDE sent the schools who received the grant an extensive list of paperwork to get into them before work can start. This paperwork has had me running to the county assessor, talking to other districts, but I think we finally have everything in place.

Iron Range Collaboration met and worked on cost projections to run the camps and the future of what we want to do during the school year. The first step is the camps this summer, then we will move on to the bigger picture. 

We have asked Steve Pumper, who works for PMA, the company who holds our OPEB, to come up and meet with the board in April to talk moving money from the OPEB to the general fund.

I thought MSBA was valuable especially the time to get to know the new board members. Thank you for going.

We had two trainers in for Martin Luther King Dy. We had Lisa Urban in to train 4-12 grade teachers on the chrome books. We also had Chris Hagerdorn in for the PK-3 teachers, Chis worked on classroom management.  Joe Philips also trained teachers on the new website.
