The audit report was satisfacto- ry. Principal Soehren reported on cur- rent enrollments at each school, and plans to switch classrooms around in Medora in order to make it possible for the preschool to expand to the two classrooms in the resource center since there will be too many for the one room they are currently using. Soehren stated she would like to purchase another iPad for use at the preschool at Prairie for translation apps to be used with the ELL student. It was suggested they use the iPad which had been purchased as a floater to see if it suits the purpose and dis- cuss this again at the January meet- ing. Soehren also stated she had a conflict for the January 11 Board meet- ing and asked the Board to consider rescheduling to January 18. The Board briefly discussed a letter from the City of Medora stating that the school could only have access to half the gymnasium at the Community Center for physical education classes due to the number of people using the facility for oil field training. The City is waiving the fee normally charged to the school.

The motion carried unanimously. The business manager informed the Board of increases in the assess- ments and contributions for Teachers' Fund for Retirement and Public Employees' Retirement System to take effect in January and July. After discussion, Rodne moved, Downing seconded, to have the District pick up the cost of these increases. The motion carried unanimously The Board discussed Scott Rask's salary. When he was offered the main- tenance position, the Board had stated his salary would be reviewed after a six month probationary period which was up in November. Rodne moved, Burian seconded, to give Rask a $.50 per hour salary increase. The motion carried unanimously. Proposals for repairs needed were tabled until the January meeting. The Board discussed the portable generator and trailer that they had decided in April to keep to be used wherever needed within the County, but which has been permanently mounted at the Dist.# 3 County Shop and the trailer traded by the County. Since this is still listed as District inventory, the business manager was instructed to draft a letter to the County Commission, to be signed by-the Board president, to see how they would like to handle this matter. Downing will be the Board's repre- sentative to Belfield's next meeting. The Board briefly discussed bus route contracts which will be up next spring. The consensus was to negoti- ate with current contractors rather than re-bid the routes. The business manager reported someone is interested in purchasing the bike rack at Prairie which is not being used there. It was decided to move it to Medora if needed there. The meeting was adjourned at 2:32 p.m. Darlene Mitchell, Business Manager Darren Baranko, President (January 5) Please support your local merchants
