5. Old Business
a. First Reading of Policy 534 – Student Use of Personal Electronic Devices
Dr. Behle discussed the redlined changes to Policy 534 with the board, which included edits for the primary, elementary and middle schools as discussed at the June 17, 2013 meeting. Dr. Behle also reviewed the edits to Section V-C High School. Additionally, Principal Driver stated that based on the board policy, guidelines would be developed by the high school staff development team clearly directing teachers and staff on student personal device use policy. Principals will review the policy annually with teachers and the school board. Additionally, the policy will be shared with all students the first week of school.
b. Action on Second Reading of Policy 506 — Student Discipline as Revised
Weber/Lindquist. Motion to approve Policy 506 – Student Discipline revised as presented. Motion carried.
6. New Business
a. Action on 2013-2014 Lunch Prices
Dr. Behle told the board that the Paid Lunch Equity provision of the Health, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010 requires school food authorities (SFA) to ensure each year that sufficient funds are paid to the school food service account for full-paid student lunches. He also told the board that for school year 2013-14 only, SFAs in “strong financial position” may submit a request to not raise its paid lunch prices for 2013-14. Food Service Coordinator, Helgeson and Finance Director, Verbrugge collected the necessary information to file the waiver. Information for the waiver included documentation that the district is in a strong financial position, and projects that additional revenues from raising lunch prices would cause the SFA to exceed its three-month expenditures limit on operating fund balance. Behle told the board that MDE accepted the waiver application for the district and lunch prices will remain the same for the 2013-14 school year. No action required.
b. Action on 2013-2014 Property and Liability Coverage and Quotes
Dr. Behle shared a power point presentation on the insurance proposals, focusing on the $25,000 deductible plans. In summary, EMC and Wright Specialty provide similar coverages and are excellent companies. Middleton Insurance (EMC), Zachman Insurance/Vaaler Insurance (Wright Specialty) can serve the school district.
Dr. Behle told the board that he’d met with representatives from Middleton Insurance and Zachman/Vaaler Insurance to review the proposals stating that the EMC proposal included different deductibles for the property extensions than specified. Behle reminded the board that the premium for last year was $210,237 with a $25,000 deductible. The quotes for the 2013-14 year are: $10,000 deductible, EMC – $245,110 and Wright Specialty – $250,069; and $25,000 deductible, EMC – $230,234 and Wright Specialty – $232,273.
Behle stated that primary difference is the deductible in the property extension. The EMC proposal uses the policy deductible of $25,000 and Wright Specialty $1,000 as outlined in the specifications. Dr. Behle indicated that a premium on $25,000 deductible was requested from Wright Specialty for comparable quotes, which would lower their quote. Additionally, Behle requested a premium on $1,000 deductible from Middleton (EMC) with additional clarification on language and costs. Dr. Behle told the board that he and Finance Director, Verbrugge also got a quote from the Minnesota Insurance Scholastic Trust (MIST), the new Minnesota school property and liability insurance pool for schools. The MIST quote ranges from $185,683-$196,763 which is over $30,000 less than the EMC and Wright Specialty quotes. The board discussed using MIST as a property and liability insurance provider based on cost, board commitment to a local provider, and newness to the market. The board agreed that at this time they would work with a local provider, but will further examine MIST in the upcoming year. The board asked Dr. Behle to make a recommendation based on additional clarifying information on the deductible for Property Extensions at the August 5, 2013 board meeting.
c. Action on Stipend Requests for Timers for Track Invite and Indoor Meets
Dr. Behle told the board that four years ago the district purchased an automatic timing system for track meets which eliminated the need for individual timers for each lane. The system requires five to nine hours to set up, dismantle and prepare for timing/scoring per meet. Because Appendix C in the master contract did not change stipends from $40 per meet per timer, Kevin Crocker and Jane Lynch have received only $40 per meet. When STMA hosted the conference meet, Crocker and Lynch were paid $250 each by the conference. There is no need for eight timers but instead the two people who set up and operate the system are required to have more expertise and commit many more hours. Dr. Behle said this was brought to his attention late in the track season and recommended compensating Crocker and Lynch more than $40 per meet. Furthermore, Behle recommended that for the past season Crocker and Lynch each receive $250 for the invitational and $125 each for the each of the two indoor meets. These amounts include the $40 they have received. Dr. Behle told the board he had delayed coming to the Board while Athletic Director, Benson collecting data; however, this system is used more at colleges and universities than high schools so we could not find comparisons from area high schools. Stipends would need to be negotiated beginning in the 2013-14 school year.
Lindquist/Scherber. Motion to approve the stipend request of $250 each for the track invitational and $125 each for indoor meets for Kevin Crocker and Jane Lynch as directed by administration. Motion carried.
d. Action on Memorandum of Understanding for Leave of Absence for Exclusive Representative with Accordance with Minnesota Statute 179.07, Subd. 6
Dr. Behle reviewed the memorandum of understanding for 2013-14 school year regarding leave of absence for STMA-EDMN local president, Kevin Crocker granting a .5 FTE leave of absence in accordance with Minnesota statute 179.07, Subd. 6 concurrently with the 2013-14 master agreement in order to conduct the duties of exclusive representative. The cost of salary and benefits for the .5 FTE position will be reimbursed by STMA-EDMN.
Lindquist/Weber. Motion to approve Memorandum of Understanding for Leave of Absence for Exclusive Representative with Accordance with Minnesota Statute 179.07, Subd. 6. Motion carried.

4. Reports
a. Report on FY2014 Referendum Revenue, Location Equity Revenue and Equity Revenue Legislation
Dr. Behle reported on the changes in referendum and location equity legislation. These changes allow school boards to convert $300 per Allowed Pupil Unit (APU) of voter approved referendum levy and participate in the location equity revenue. Dr. Behle recommended that the board not convert $300/APU of voter approved referendum to a board approved levy because there is no immediate benefit. He stated that the conversion must be renewed every five years and the district’s current $695 levy is for nine more years. Additionally, Dr. Behle recommended the district not opt out of the location equity revenue because it would reduce equity revenue by $64,233. Dr. Behle also recommended the district study the change in the legislation that would designate the St. Michael-Albertville school district as a metro school for purposes of location revenue. Elk River, Buffalo and Rockford school districts have district area in the seven county metro area, which makes them eligible for the higher amount $424/ADU whereas ISD 885 is only eligible for only $212. Dr. Behle said the study would not have an immediate effect but could provide some flexibility to school boards in the future. No action was required by the Board.
b. Report on MSBA 2013 Summer Seminar
Dr. Behle and Jeanne Holland attended the MSBA Summer Seminar on Monday August 5th. The presentations centered around school safety, including discussion on prevention, crisis response, and recovery.
c. Wright Technical Center – Holland
Board Member Holland said the WTC Director, Ray Przekurat, started in July. Holland also told the Board Przekurat has been meeting with Principals and Superintendents and anticipates meeting with community businesses to begin creating partnerships.
5. Old Business
a. Action on Second Reading of Policy 534 – Student Use of Personal Electronic Devices as Revised
Dr. Behle presented Policy 534 – Student Use of Personal Electronic Devices to the board which included additional language as requested by the board.
Scherber/Steffens. Motion to approve Policy 534 – Student Use of Electronic Devices as presented. Motion carried.
b. Action on 2013-2014 Property and Liability Coverage and Quotes
Dr. Behle told the board that he met with Arlan Middleton to review his quote for property and liability coverage. Behle stated that Middleton was able to get the $1,000 deductible on the property extension items by moving them under inland marine or a special limit provision, except for five items which remain under the policy deductible of $25,000. According to information provided by Middleton, the changes did not alter his original quote of $230,234. Wright Specialty’s quote was $232,273.
Middleton told the board there was an error in the original quote from EMC for the $25,000 deductible plan under the Equipment Breakdown Endorsement. EMC used the premium for a $10,000 deductible plan for both the $25,000 and $10,000 deductible plans. Correcting this error reduces the EMC premium to $224,126. Dr. Behle said he went through the two original quotes and the Equipment Breakdown Endorsement for both deductibles was quoted as a $10,000 deductible. The premium for the current year is $210,236.
Dr. Behle told the board that he’d talked with Dan Zachman after the July 15, board meeting and offered Zachman/Vaaler the opportunity to review their quote again within the specifications outlined by the Board. Zachman told Behle they would not offer a new quote as they followed the specifications. Dr. Behle told the board that with reservations, weighing issues of bid integrity as well as the error found in the original EMC quote, against a premium that is $8,000 less than Wright Specialty, he recommended that the Board accept the EMC quote from Middleton Associates.
After lengthy discussion, board members remained concerned that the integrity of the process was compromised when Middleton did not meet the original specifications and had the opportunity to submit a revised quote.
Scherber/Weber. Motion to approve Wright Specialty as 2013-2014 Property, Casualty and Liability Insurance Provider. Motion carried.
New Business
c. Action on Call for Nominations to Serve at MSBA’s Delegate Assembly
Dr. Behle stated that Board Chair Birk has been the Delegate Assembly member for the district and would like to continue as delegate.
Steffens/Holland. Motion to Nominate Doug Birk to Serve as the ISD 885 MSBA Delegate Assembly representative. Motion carried.
d. Action on Legal Counsel Ratwick, Roszak & Maloney, P.A.
Dr. Behle told the board that Jennifer Early, District Legal Counsel, changed law firms from Knutson, Flynn & Deans to Ratwick, Roszak & Maloney. Dr. Behle recommended that the district stay with Jennifer Early because of her understanding and positive long-term relationship with the district and designate Ratwick, Roszak & Maloney as legal counsel for the district.
Director Weber recognized the long-term relationship with Knutson, Flynn & Deans. The Board discussed the benefits of remaining with a legal firm compared to a relationship with an attorney.
Lindquist/Scherber. Motion to designate Ratwick, Roszak & Maloney, P.A. as Legal Counsel. Aye: Holland, Lindquist, Scherber, Steffens, Weber. Nay: None. Abstain: Birk.
