Approved FY17 Audit Report and Findings.
Approved a proposal from SchoolDude.
Costs: Initial and prorated Year 1 $27,244.00
Year 2 (July 1, 2018 June 30, 2019) $ 3,660.00
Approved capital roofing projects based upon proposal from ICS Consulting, Inc., providing these costs for the basic services:
NE Range School $1,819,348*
Tower-Soudan School 187,849
Numbers are based on district-selected "medium" option, which includes partial replacement of decking. Costs could increase if additional bad decking is discovered when roofing is removed, or decrease if bids come in lower than anticipated. *These costs include the gym roof (18,300 square feet, approximately $500,000), which was previously thought to be under warranty. (Pool roof of 11,285 square feet in need of repair will be covered under ARI's warranty or by the manufacturer as that roof is only two years old.) The roofing project will be broken down into pieces when put out for bids in order to provide flexibility that may be needed to complete the project within budget.
Approved a new benefit to ISD 2142 staff as follows: Employees will receive a 50% discount if they have kids in any of the district's before- and after-school enrichment programs, effective at the start of the 2017-2018 school year. If any staff members have paid full price since the beginning of the school year, they will receive a credit that can be applied to their future use of the program.
Approved MOU to the 2017-2019 Teachers' Contract, serving a two-fold purpose:
1. It provides resolution to a grievance which was brought forth by Probationary Teacher Michelle Phillips.
2. It provides for an agreement between Education Minnesota Local 1406 and St. Louis County Schools ISD 2142 which applies to Article XV of the 2017-2019 Teachers' Contract, specifically that "no probationary teacher is entitled to benefits under Article XV."
Approved MOU to enable and structure the collaboration between Fond du Lac Human Services Division Behavioral Health Department and ISD 2142 in the implementation of the Creating Educational Success for American Indian Children Services.
Approved MOU serving to develop a mutual plan of support in the event of an unforeseeable situation, disaster or emergency requiring the Cook Hospital and Care Center to evacuate and relocate patients, clients or residents.
On June 9, 2014 the School Board approved, and entered into, a contract with FrontLine Technologies Group LLC for VeriTime, which is time and attendance software for use by hourly staff. The following amounts were paid under the contract:
$3000 paid on 6/27/2014 for startup and implementation costs
$9750 paid on 7/20/2015 for the 2015-2016 subscription cost (for 341 users)
VeriTime was never implemented due to time constraints in the payroll department. VeriTime will be implemented beginning this summer with custodians, with full implementation by the start of the next school year. Frontline has agreed to reduce their present implementation fee by the $3000 previously paid so from $4500 to $1500. The annual subscription cost will be $5784.03, broken down as follows:
Users $46.25 x 100 = $4,625.00
Substitutes $23.12 x 50 = 1,156.25
Sub Training 2.78
Approved the additional cost to implement VeriTime.

(Member C. Koivisto had left the Study Session prior to this time.)
Hired Reggie Engebritson, Ed.D. as Superintendent, subject to negotiation of a 3-year contract to be effective July 1, 2018 which will be approved at a future meeting.
