b. Wright Technical Center Update – Jeanne Holland
6. Old Business
a. Action on Property and Liability Insurance Carrier and Agent Process
Behle told the board he and Verbrugge attended an informational risk pool meeting at Arthur J. Gallagher, Risk Management Services, Inc. He said the advantages of joining a pool are insurance at a lower cost through economy of scale and the negotiation power of a large group. Behle also discussed questions he brought forth at the meeting. Behle told the board disadvantages include a three-year commitment from original pool district and the district would bear the cost of a local agent. Gallagher offered to submit a no obligation quote to the district for property and liability insurance. Behle recommended moving forward with soliciting bids from the four different insurance carriers through two local insurance agents. Behle will work with Finance Director, Verbrugge on the specs with the goal to have bids by July 15. Behle further recommended receiving a quote from Gallagher Risk Management for cost and coverage comparison.
b. Update on Community Outreach
Dr. Behle told the board that a number of community outreach correspondence items addressing school funding and property tax equalization have been prepared. A Question and Answer informational sheet and short power point presentation were sent to board members for their use. In addition, a sample letter for parents to fill in and send or email to representatives, and a list of legislators were prepared. Behle told the board the information would be sent out to parents through the auto dialer this week.
7. New Business
a. Action on Senior Recognition Day
High School Principal Driver requested Senior Recognition day on Friday, May 24, 2013 in which members of the senior class will be excused from school for the day. Driver stated that this class has been respectful leaders and recommended approval of this day.
Steffens/Lindquist. Motion to approve Senior Recognition Day on Friday, May 24, 2013. Motion carried.
b.
1) Action on Moving the High School SNAP Period to the End of the Day
High School Principal Driver told the board that past practice has been to move SNAP to the end of the school day in late April, after MCA’s, to accommodate early release of spring activities and maximize student class time. In addition, he requested the board approve this action going forward, rather than coming to the board annually with this request.
Steffens/Weber. Motion to approve moving SNAP to the end of the school day in late April, after MCA’s as the discretion of the High School Principal. Motion carried.
2) Action to Allow Senior Privileges During SNAP
Principal Driver requested to allow seniors to be dismissed during the SNAP period, beginning May 6, 2013. Driver stated that seniors are given a card they must show prior to leaving the building. Seniors who are not in good standing academically remain during SNAP for assistance.
Lindquist/Steffens. Motion to approve allow Senior Privileges during SNAP beginning May 6, 2013. Motion carried.
c. Action on Adding Assistant 9th Grade Boys Baseball Coach
Dr. Behle requested the addition of an Assistant 9th Grade Boys Baseball Coach stating that there are 46 9th grade boys signed up for baseball. Adding a coach would allow for a “B” team which would significantly reduce cuts. The Booster club would pay for uniforms and extra equipment.
d. Action on Adding Boys Tennis Coach
Dr. Behle requested the addition of a Boys Tennis Coach. Behle told the board that there are currently 46 boys in 7th through 12th grade going out for tennis. The United States Tennis Federation has a no-cut policy which the board asked Dr. Behle to explore. Behle told the Board that Activities Director Benson compared coach to player ratios with other districts and we were right in the range to add an additional coach.
Lindquist/Steffens. Motion to approve the addition of an Assistant 9th Grade Boys Baseball Coach and Boys Tennis Coach. Motion carried.

9. Donations
Board Chair Birk recognized the High School as the recipient of the Minnesota Toyota “Drive for Education” grant. The district first won a grant of $2,500, and through public decision, won an upgraded grant of $10,000 in lieu of the $2,500. High School Principal Driver told the board the idea of creating a school-sponsored community garden at the high school started last fall, but realized funding would be a major obstacle. Driver said the garden would be more than a fruit and vegetable garden and that it would contain flowers, paths, sculptured art and benches. The idea would be to have as many school disciplines involved in the project as possible. Students, through the Technology Education Department and the Art Department would provide the sculptures and outdoor furniture. Science and FACS students would work on planting preparation and food preparation. Driver further told the Board the benefits of creating a garden would be endless; including, providing produce to local community members, studying the growth cycle, working with senior citizens, mentoring our neighboring elementary students, and understanding the importance of working collaboratively to accomplish a goal. The Board commended Driver on this achievement.
Donations recently made to the schools in the district were recognized by the board. A list of donations is available in the district office.
