a. Report on Knights Academy – Lisa Bjork
Lisa Bjork, Coordinator for Knights Academy spoke to the board about the Knights Academy program. Knights Academy provides a unique learning community in which each student can experience success. Through equal efforts, staff and students develop partnerships that promote individuality, cooperation and high academic standards. Bjork told the board that there were three items which she believed were necessary to a successful alternative learning program: dedicated teachers, hands-on active learning; and a strong sense of community and culture within the program. Bjork said that she believes the program is successful in meeting the students’ needs through dedicated teachers and hands-on learning, and will strive, in the upcoming school year, to continue to build the community and culture in the program. Bjork described some of the changes that occurred in the past year, including changing from three terms to six terms to provide more immediate feedback for the students. In addition, an advisory time was added to the daily schedule as well as silent sustained reading. In 2012-13, Bjork is excited and thankful for the addition of a language arts teacher, and will be working on implementing work release/independent study.
b. Report on Full-Day Kindergarten Costs – Ann-Marie Foucault
Ann-Marie Foucault presented cost projection for district-funded full day kindergarten. Currently, Albertville Primary has 11 sections of full day kindergarten, six morning sections, and six afternoon sections (23 total sections). There are 441 students and 17.0 FTE classroom teachers. Kindergarten students see specialists for art, music, and gym. To move to full day kindergarten, six new classroom teachers would have to be hired. The district would have to absorb .5 FTE for each of the 11 full day section teachers, as those are currently paid for by full day tuition. Total costs for additional classroom teachers would be approximately $690,000. In addition, $60,000 would be needed to acquire additional specialist time (1.0 FTE) needed to cover teacher preps. To cover special education students, additional para support would cost $55,586.25. To cover additional para professional costs for recess and flex, it is estimated $26,260 would be needed. Curriculum costs would be approximately $60,000 and furniture cost would be approximately $35,700. Total projected costs for district-funded full day kindergarten are $989,260. Currently, the state funds half-day kindergarten.
c. Staffing Update – Jim Behle
Dr. Behle updated the board on staffing changes that have been made since his last report. Changes include adding an additional section of first grade at Big Woods in order to maintain class sizes at ranges similar to the other elementary schools. Dr. Behle also approved an additional section of Kindergarten Express (half-day paid by parents) at Albertville Primary. Dr. Behle did not approve an additional section of fifth grade for Middle School East. Fifth grade enrollment has increased from 231 to 244 students at Middle School East. This will mean fifth grade class sizes over 30 students. Middle school class sizes at other grades, including fifth grade at Middle School West, range from 27-29 students. Dr. Behle also approved a planning room paraprofessional at the high school. This position will provide increased supervision with the high school enrollment increase, and allow the three principals more time to work with teachers on school improvement initiatives. This was paid for with the new literacy dollars. The overall cost increase to the budget in these changes for the general fund is for the one teacher at Big Woods Elementary.

a. Property, Liability, and Casualty Insurance Report – Arlen Middleton
Arlen Middleton reported that the premium increases for property, casualty and liability insurance and workers compensation insurance are proposed to increase 42.26%. Middleton stated that the significant increase is because of industry trends rather than local claims. He asked the board for direction in retaining quotes from additional companies. The board asked Middleton to get quotes from other companies and bring them to the September 4, 2012 board meeting for review and approval.
b. Board/Superintendent Joint Seminar or Trainings
Dr. Behle presented the board with several joint seminar / training options in response to feedback on his evaluation regarding his role in encouraging and/or providing Board training on topics of Board interest. He suggested that presentations could be made at Board meetings by groups, such as MSBA, presentations by district staff, or joint trainings among Board members and Dr. Behle. Dr. Behle also share that member Steffens suggested to have principals throughout the year present. Board members were in favor of principal presentations, we well as short, more formal trainings once or twice a year before a board meeting. Dr. Behle will continue to look at options with direction from the board.
