River Valley School Board Minutes & Bills — January 16, 2019

River Valley Board of Education
January 16, 2019

The River Valley Board of Education met in regular session on Wednesday, January 16, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in the High School Media Center.  Members present were:  Gaylen Goettsch, Scott Knaack, and Kristi Knaack.  Absent were Deb Stevenson and Nicole Deeds.

An open forum was held concerning the sharing of the high school girls track team with Galva-Holstein and Schaller-Crestland.  Visitors expressed some of their concerns such as losing students because they didn’t want to travel, losing our identity as a school and wanting to provide a coach from our school to go along with our students.  Others expressed that fact that the wrestling program that is currently shared with Ridge View is going very well and that there are not enough girls currently out for track to be competitive with other schools.

Motion by Goettsch, second by Krager to approve consent agenda consisting of minutes of the December 17, 2018 meeting and the work session, Business manager’s financial statements and audit of claims.  Carried 3-0.

In old business, Motion was made by Krager, second by Goettsch to continue to fund elementary counselor and MS/HS counselor through at-risk funds because due to carry over, we are unable to levy for At-Risk Money. Carried 3-0.

Motion by Krager, second by Knaack to approve sharing the girls track program with Galva-Holstein and Schaller-Crestland for one year and to include the River Valley name.  The program will be evaluated after one year. Knaack, Krager – ayes. Goettsch – nay. Carried 2-1.

Motion by Goettsch, second by Krager to approve contracts for Brittni Bormann as Shared Girls Track Coach at $2,100.00 and Mike Persinger as Boy’s Track coach at $2,959.59.  Carried 3-0.

Motion by Krager, second by Goettsch to approve contract for Tara Hill as Basketball Cheerleading Coach at $1,078.00.  Carried 3-0.

Motion by Krager, second by Goettsch to approve the purchase of a Genie AWP 30’ Lift from Bierschback Equipment and Supply at a cost of $10,900.00 to be taken from PPEL.  Carried 3-0.

The next meeting will be February 11, 2019 at 6:00 p.m.

Adjourned at 9:10 p.m.

Scott Knaack, Board President
Kathy Fick, Board Secretary
