Superintendent's Report: 1) Wrapping up loose ends and working with Mr. Sallee to ensure a smooth transition. 2) Three years went by quickly, have learned and grown as a leader. Felt like a punching bag, coming in during a time of change, pain, and turmoil, and have helped the district to overcome that. Had to look closely at the budget regarded necessary cuts as right-sizing the budget, had to be done. 3) Made huge strides in technology, including the iPad initiative. 4) CGI, a huge benefit, has a ripple effect made the investment in teachers and now have a coaching and mentoring system in place. 5) Continued to promote Q-comp and now 2142 is leading the way in staff development. 6) Promoting Early Childhood has increased our enrollment. 7) We have new and newly-remodeled schools. 8) A lot of positive things have happened in 2142 in the last three years. Want to thank the SB for the opportunity to lead the district. 9) Sit on some leadership committees in the area and have asked them if Mr. Sallee can take my place on the ALI Cabinet Committee and the EIP Leadership Committee.

In addition to the leadership role Ms. Knife Chief played as a member of the committees she mentioned, Member Rantala recognized the Superintendent for her leadership role working with State legislators who have brought a lot of money into the district.
