M/S Stacey Kessel/Reis to certify the election re- sults of Director District 3 and declare Joey Kessel elected to a three-year term, to declare the change from five separate director districts to two sepa- rate director districts approved, and to declare the publication of board Minutes approved. Arthaud, Joey Kessel, Stacey Kessel, and Reis in favor. (Klatt absent.) Arthaud stated that she, Erika Hon- eyman, and Danielle O'Brien served on a committee to review the bids submit- ted for Managed IT Services. Bids were submitted by Marco and SMART Com- puters. The committee recommended awarding the contract to SMART Com- puters. M/S Stacey Kessel/Joey Kessel to follow the recommendation of the re- view committee and contract with SMART Computers for the 2017-18 fis- cal year with the option to renew the contract for up to two additional years if both parties agree. Arthaud, Joey Kessel, Stacey Kessel, and Reis in favor. (Klatt absent.) Lori Noble developed a list of ap- proximately 100 food service products used at both schools. This list was pro- vided to Sysco and U.S. foods, the only two vendors known to provide service in Billings County. They were asked to submit a price quote on these products. The total estimate from U.S. Food Services was $28,606.83 and from Sysco was $27,674.17. Noble reported that she did reference checks on the vendors. It was Noble's recommenda- tion to the board to enter into an agree- ment with Sysco for the 2017-18 school year for food service purchases. M/S Reis/Stacey Kessel to follow the rec- ommendation of Noble to enter into an agreement with Sysco for purchases. Arthaud, Joey Kessel, Stacey Kessel and Reis in favor. (Kiatt absent.) Arthaud requested to jump ahead in the agenda to Principal report so Klatt could be in on discussion regarding school consolidation and Prairie expan- sion project. Peplinski reported on in- structional staff training. She also informed the board that there may be a need for additional teacher's aides for Prairie and DeMores, but will wait until school starts to have a better idea of whether additional staff are needed. Peplinski also informed the board that the preschools at both buildings will be run through Social Services licensed as daycares. Peplinski provided the board with an Interventionist Job Description. The board suggested adding ADA standards and approval was tabled until next meeting. Title II funds have significantly de- creased. This will impact the amount of professional development training that teachers and principals will be able to obtain. A draft of a new Tobacco Free policy was provided to the board. SW District Health staff had met with Peplinski and O'Brien to request that the school dis- trict's policy be updated. The board asked that the draft of the new policy be sent to the NDSBA policy services for their review and input before the board acts on it. O'Brien reported that the survey has not yet been completed at Prairie to es- tablish exact property boundaries. She will follow up with Jeremy Wood to see when he will be able to do the survey- ing. Klatt arrived at meeting. Wade Northrop discussed the con- solidation of the Belfield School District and the Billings County School District with the board. Arthaud presented in- formation she had compiled on the ef- fects the consolidation would have on the taxes for the Billings County resi- dents. She felt that prior to even build- ing a new school in Belfield, with tax levies remaining at the same level they currently are in both school districts, the consolidation would cause the Billings County residents' taxes to increase and the Belfield School District taxes to de- crease. If a new school is built after the consolidation, a bond would need to be obtained to finance the new building and this would require additional tax levies for all residents in the newly con- solidated district. She felt it would be imprudent of the Billings County school board to agree to move forward with a study when she knew the end result would be detrimental to the Billings County residents. She discussed a section in ND Century Code that allows one school district to contract with an- other school district to appropriate a share of taxes. If the Davis Refinery is built and the Billings County School Dis- trict receives a significant increase in tax dollars, this law would allow the Billings County School District to pro- vide support to neighboring school dis- tricts. Klatt stated that he strongly believed that the newly formed board in the consolidated school district would be forced to make the tough decision of closing at least one of the schools be- fore raising taxes significantly once a consolidation would occur. M/S Klatt/Joey Kessel to deny the request tO start a consolidation process but to con- tinue to work with Belfield to consider other options that could be worked on together in supporting the Belfield School District. All in favor. Dan Schaff presented revised floor plans for the Prairie Expansion project. Three different options were provided. The board will study the plans and meet for a work session two hours prior to the July regular board meeting. No decision was made on whether to proceed with the expansion or not. M/S Reis/Joey Kessel to renew the contract in the amount of $900 for the 2017-18 fiscal year with The Village Employee Assistance Program. All in favor. M/S Joey Kessel/Klatt to renew the annual membership contract in the amount of $2,710.71 for the 2017-18 fiscal year with the ND School Board Association. All in favor. Arthaud reported that the Billings County Commission plans to donate to the Billings County School District two suburbans that were going to be traded in from the Sheriff's department for new ones. The suburbans will be used to transport students to activities and sports practices. The board expressed appreciation for the donation and feel it will help retain students in the upper grades. Staff will be asked to volunteer to be drivers and allowed to take the ve- hicles home if transporting students. Staff drivers will be required to be in the drug and alcohol testing pool. The board was provided a written fa- cilities report from Dave Dickey. Simnioniw reported that the release for the water damage insurance claim was signed by Arthaud and the settle- ment payment of $96,964.50 should be received soon. A request from the per- formance bond insurance agency for a release of funds in the amount of $12,618.50 for repairing the work de- fects of the DeMores roof was received. The amount of the settlement payment will be less if the actual costs are less than the estimate. If more work is dis- covered after repairs are under way, the bond company will provide more fund- ing if supporting documentation demon- strates the need. M/S Joey Kessel/Reis to approve the release contingent upon additional defective work being covered if more deficiencies are discovered as work is being completed. All in favor. Simnioniw provided estimates from Cerberus Security for upgrading the se- curity camera systems at DeMores and Prairie Schools. The estimate for Prairie is $10,054.96 and for DeMores is $10,307.22. Sheriff Pat Rummel has committed $3,571 in DEM funds for the security cameras in the bid. The re- mainder can be covered through the building fund. M/S Klatt/Reis to accept the quote and secure the services of Cerebrus Securities to do the upgrades at each site. All in favor. Simnioniw reported that the Pioneer was requesting that we publish our un- official Minutes. It was the consensus of the board to not publish the Minutes until they were approved so as not to incur the cost of publishing them a sec- ond time if there were corrections. An audit agreement for fiscal year 2017 was received from James Wosepka CPA in the amount of $4,800. M/S Joey Kessel/Stacey Kessel to ap- prove obtaining the services of James Wosepka CPA for auditing fiscal year 2017. All in favor. Valuations, Inc. submitted a pro- posal for inventory services. Discus- sion was held on the benefits of this service. Simnioniw was asked to follow up with the ND State Fire and Tornado fund to determine what is currently on record for replacement cost of the build- ings and to try to determine the bene- fits of having a new assessment of the buildings and their major systems for in- surance purposes. A decision on se- curing these services was tabled. The board considered current prac- tices of who is charged for hot lunch. M/S Reis/Joey Kessel that all staff, in- cluding all substitute teachers (long- term and short-term), and substitute ancillary staff, excluding cooks and sub- stitute cooks, be required to pay for hot lunch when eating. All in favor. The board reviewed the family trans- portation payment report. M/S Klatt/Joey Kessel to approve the family payments as presented. All in favor. The high school and special educa- tion report was not yet available. This will be reviewed at the July meeting. Simnioniw requested approval to pay end of fiscal year bills out of the 2016-17 budget and payment list be presented at the July meeting. M/S Reis/Klatt to approve this request. All in favor. Simnioniw provided the board with a preliminary budget for the 2017-18 fis- cal year. It was the consensus of the board not to request LU funds from the county for the 2017-18 fiscal year in light of the generous donation of the suburbans. Discussion on whether to raise general fund taxes ensued. M/S Joey Kessel/Reis to hold a public meet- ing on August 29 at 6:00 p.m. for the purpose of proposing to the public a 12% tax increase to the general fund dollar amount. Arthaud, Joey Kessel, Klatt, and Reis in favor; Stacey Kessel opposed. Motion carried. Stacey Kessel gave the RESP re- port. The board reviewed correspon- dence which included thank you notes from Wyatt Tzap, Austin Klatt, and Grif- fin Kessel and a letter from Matt Bent- ley. M/S Joey Kessel/Klatt to adjourn. All in favor.
