Chelsey Rohm reported that winter sports have started. There was an ASB meeting last Tuesday. They passed a few fundraisers and discussed the "Mr. Woodland" DECA fundraising idea that they would like to do in the spring. It would be a talent show much like the Miss America pageant.
The Board reviewed the Operations reports.
Tech Report- Jim Bays asked for an explanation of the thin client lab. Michael Green said that he would give the Board a tour of the lab. He said the lab is where a central super computer is connected to a group of monitors, keyboards and small boxes at the workstations. This is a way to get more computers to students in a cost effective way.
Community Ed. Report- Kathie Griffin reported that the Snowflake Bazaar was a huge success this year. The Lyon's Club Turkey Bingo also sold out following the bazaar. 75 kids have signed up for Youth Basketball, which is about average. YCC's numbers are up a little and she's hearing great things about the program. WCC's numbers are down a little due to the economy and job losses in the area. Jim Bays asked Kathie if the community knows about the E-Scrip program. This is where Safeway customers can ask Safeway to assign WCC cents on the dollar whenever they use their Safeway Club Card. Kathie said that she would make sure that an article about this program gets published to remind the community about this.Financial/Enrollment Report- Stacy Brown reviewed her report with the Board which included the 2007-2008 Sources-Uses final list, the summary of fund balances for all funds, the 2008-2009 budget vs. actual comparison to 2007-2008 and the November enrollment report. Stacy said that she will have a budget extension on the next agenda and Michael said that there may also be a budget extension request later in the year should the KWRL Coop take over in-district Special Ed. transportation.
Mr. Green reminded the Board that there would be only one Board meeting next month on December 15th, as per Board policy. Jennifer Cullison is working with the O Ambassadors' Club on an overseas trip. This may be presented at the next meeting along with an agreement with the Port of Woodland to serve as our lease agent on the Dike Access Road property. Michael had a Thanksgiving feast with Kindergarteners today. Tomorrow is the last day for students before the Thanksgiving Holiday. The Board was asked to think about selecting a Board representative for the calendar committee next month.
The Board reviewed a thank you letter to WinCo Foods for totes that they donated for the Project READY! program.
WSSDA Annual Conference Review
Jim Bays said that he obtained copies of a sample superintendent evaluation tool that was similar to what the Board discussed at the last meeting. He said it is a lot like the tool that the Board uses, but without the items that the Board would not be able to answer. Michael will attach a copy to the Friday Notes for Board members to look over. Bill Woodard and Jim Bays will work as a committee on drafting the evaluation tool.
