Keehn will assume her role as principal July 1.

The board voted to offer a retirement incentive to staff members who are eligible by age and years of service, provided they submit a letter of retirement to the district by the end of February 2014 by a 3-1 vote.

District Superintendent Chris Peterson reported that open enrollment is approaching fast. (Feb. 3-April 30), The board and administraters are discussing several possibilities for promoting the district.

An amendment was approved to the 2013-2014 adopted budget to update the budget based upon current expectations for staffing and benefit changes, including medical leaves and expenditures, grant revisions to revenues and related expenditures, reallocation of budget resources for supplies, equipment and technology needs, the debt service crossover refunding interest payment and completion of the capital project fund.

This amendment continues to utilize $300,000 of the general fund balance that was approved at the Oct. 2013 board meeting.

The board accepted Michael Buehler’s letter of retirement with regret.

Due to the weather, the board voted to change Feb. 21 from a no-school day to a weather-related makeup day.
