     Action #4016:  Motion by Malcomb, seconded by Waikel to enter into executive session at 7:09 p.m. to discuss student issues.  Chairman Beyer declared the board out of executive session at 7:22 p.m.

     Construction manager Dick Amert gave an update on the building project.  The project will possibly be completed by the end of April.

     Discussion was held with the Community Club.  During the construction process the water line was cut going to the outdoor concession stand/restrooms.  Due to the poor condition of the concession stand the Town of Ramona is okay with it if the school wants to demolish the concession stand.  It was suggested that the football crow’s nest be re-located and possibly rebuilt to also contain the concession stand and restrooms.  The brick archway is also in poor condition and needs to be removed.  A request to purchase a set of portable metal bleachers for the football/baseball season was discussed. 

     Action #4017:  Motion by Hojer, seconded by Matson to purchase a 2013 Blue Bird bus for $81,500 on the 2012-13 budget.  Grant money will be received in the amount of $19,937 toward the purchase.

     Action #4018:  Motion by Malcomb, seconded by Hojer to approve the employment contract for the remainder of the 2011-12 school year for Marilyn Riedel, head cook, $10.00/hour.

     The board discussed the possibility of starting a Head Start pre-school program for next year.  The board decided not to participate.

     The Experience Works position was discussed.  At this time no one has been placed.  The person would be a classroom aide working directly with students.

     There was an issue with the teacher negotiations.  Negotiations will be re-opened and another date selected to conduct negotiations.

     The shop room at the gym in Oldham was discussed.  Many items need to be discarded or surplussed.  Repairs will be made and the room turned into a display room for the old Oldham School items. 

     Action #4019:  Motion by Malcomb, seconded by Waikel to approve the open enrollment application.

     Action #4020:  Motion by Matson, seconded by Malcomb to approve moving the pre-school and driver’s ed expenditures and revenues to new accounts.  They would move from the General Fund to the current After School Program Fund.  The new fund will be renamed as “Other Enterprise Funds.”

     The non-certified employee contract renewals were tabled until the May meeting.

     Action #4021:  Motion by Hojer, seconded by Waikel to set the sport co-op coach salaries for 2012-13 giving a 5% pay increase.

     Action #4022:  Motion by Malcomb, seconded by Hojer to approve participation at the band competition on Saturday, April 21 in Flandreau.

     Mike Matson, the school’s Prairie Lakes Educational Coop representative had nothing to report as he was not present for the meeting.

     Matson and Hojer attended the sport coop meeting held in Rutland.  Decisions were made to continue the football program as is, having two games in Rutland and two games in Ramona each year.  The location of future District games was also discussed.  If O-R-R is to host District volleyball games they will be held in Rutland, District boys basketball games will be held in Oldham, and District girls basketball games will be held in Ramona.

     Interim Supt Dr. Moran gave the superintendent report.

     Action #4023:  Motion by Malcomb, seconded by Hojer to enter into executive session at 9:29 p.m. to discuss personnel.  Chairman Beyer declared the board out of executive session at 11:05 p.m.

     Action #4024:  Motion by Waikel, seconded by Matson to accept the resignation of John Roache, computer teacher/tech.

     The next regular meeting of the board is scheduled for Monday, May 14, 2012 at 7:00 p.m.

     Action #4025:  Motion by Waikel, seconded by Malcomb to adjourn at 11:14 p.m.
