Approved the Agenda.
Superintendent's Report: 1) Superintendent Evaluation Workshop April 30 at NESC. New evaluation model includes goals. Encourage SB Members to attend. Will request an evaluation by the Board this spring. 2) Legislative update. Watching Governor's budget recommendations closely. Transportation bill for rural districts receiving press would increase revenue for us by $330,000. Transportation losses FY14 $700,000 and FY13 $950,000 include vehicle purchases. Our per mile transportation cost is very low. Funding universal Pre-K for 4-year-olds $235 million in FY17 and $586.7 million. Funding for paraprofessionals to obtain teaching licenses, would pay up-front rather than reimburse. State recognizes and is responding to difficulty districts are facing in finding qualified teachers. Special Ed formula increase $39.5 million FY16-17, $97.4 million FY 18-19. 3) State is getting hit hard about their ACT testing format -- test 8:30 to 2:00 with one 15-min break. Our plan ­ serve all kids breakfast before test starts, have a grab-and-go snack for them at 10:30, and serve them a good lunch at 2:00. 4) Study Session Apr 13 at 3:00, prior to SB meeting at SR, to review revised 2014-2015 Budget. 5) One-on-one interviews with Seniors have been set up: Apr 20-21 SR, Apr 23 Cherry, Apr 29 NE Rg, and May 7-8 NW.

A presentation will be made to the SB annually on use of the School Forest.
Cherry School Report presented by Principal Scott Hall: 1) Teachers are focusing on preparing kids for MCA testing at the end of Apr. 2) Working with teachers to plan MCA testing format.

PROCEEDINGS OF
ST. LOUIS COUNTY SCHOOLS ISD 2142
A Special Meeting of the School Board of Independent School District No. 2142, St. Louis County Schools, was held at the District Office on Wednesday, April 1, 2015, beginning at 3:00 p.m.
Business Manager Kim Johnson provided a brief Budget update. The SB will hold a Study Session to review the Revised Budget in detail on April 13 prior to the Regular SB Meeting. The revenue side of the Revised Budget is coming in higher than the Adopted Budget by approximately $600,000. Approximately half of that is in the Debt Service Fund, which will decrease the tax burden for taxpayers, with the remaining half in the General Fund. Salaries district-wide, which are 75% of total Budget expenditures, are coming in close or slightly lower, at approximately $21 million. In summary, the Revised Budget will be better than the Adopted Budget.
The slow-down in ore production will affect us in the next three years and cause an increase in taxes, as taconite dollars are based on a 3-year average and offset a portion of the levy.

Superintendent Steve Sallee, Kim, and Tom met last week and developed their recommendation regarding priority projects; those priorities were likewise identified on the Capital Project List.
