River Valley School Board Minutes & Bills — October 14, 2019

River Valley Board of Education
October 14, 2019

The River Valley Board of Education met in regular session on Monday, October 14, 2019 at 6:01 p.m. in the High School Media Center in Correctionville, IA.  Members present were:  Gaylen Goettsch, Scott Knaack, Kristi Krager, and Nicole Deeds.  Absent: Deb Stevenson

An open forum was held regarding the potential sharing of sports with another district.  Visitors expressed concerns in regards to last years sharing of track with Ridge View and they felt the River Valley identity was not recognized.  Visitors also said the girls did have some good experiences while sharing track.  Visitors expressed concerns of declining numbers in many sports if we share with another district and communicated we could enhance our current programs by encouraging participants to participate in multiple activities.  Visitors communicated if the board decides to share a sport or sports, that a group name and uniforms be established to recognize the River Valley participants as well.
