1.02 Pledge of Allegiance
1.03 Accept and Approve Board Meeting Agenda - approved unanimously
2. SUPERINTENDENT'S COMMUNICATION - Federal lunch program - due to the pandemic, they were able to offer meals to all students at no cost last year. The USDA has not extended the program, so it is now operating at normal processes. Students will need to enroll in free/reduced plans. They can no longer give free meals to all students. The reimbursement rates have also dropped dramatically as well. Even with reimbursements, the district operates at a loss with students who receive free/reduced lunches. WIth inflation, costs have also risen for the Food Services dramatically. The district does try to reduce costs by being part of a consortium and utilizing the central office building for storage, forecasting, etc. Typical food product purchased by the district prices are up 30%. When looking at how our increases have gone, the increase this year is minimal in comparison. Our cafeteria services are not designed to make profit, but are also not designed to go into deficit with money to balance coming from the general fund. Any extra money from the pandemic needed to be used on equipment - it couldn’t be for food. Those were the rationale for the increases - and are in line with other local districts.
3. TREASURER'S COMMUNICATION - The transition in the Treasurer's office is going well and all office services are continuing as needed

Discussion - Karen Schulz - Was this covered at the PI meeting? Kristen Cavanaugh: yes, it was discussed in PI update. Todd Monroe: this is above the stage, cafeteria and stage. Will do an infrared test to determine what needs to be repaired and address those areas. KC: Were able to prove that the roof does need to be repaired. Comes with a. 20 year warranty. Dave Toth: 5 years ago, the board knew that the roof needed to be repaired. We’re looking at replacing the gym floor down the road and new equipment in the cafeteria. Shouldn’t put new money into the floor without addressing the roof. KC: this roof in 2018 was only in "Fair" condition above the gym and tests show it does not contain asbestos.
Motion - passed unanimously
7. ADJOURNMENT - adjourned at 7:23 pm
Post meeting - Dave Toth to members of the public:
Throughout the year, surveys may be done and community members can look them over. How will someone know? In the 7-12/CIS, they probably email parents out. Younger kids may just be notified by paper. All community members can contact principals or the superintendent to review surveys at any time.
