The School Board Work Session Meeting of the Howard Lake-Waverly-Winsted ISD #2687 was called to order at 7:39 p.m. on December 6, 2004. Roll was taken with members present: Al Doering, John Lideen, Tom Hammer, Dan Schaible, Lori Custer; Charles Weber, and Charlie Borrell. Also present were Superintendent George Ladd, and Board Secretary Marilyn Greeley.

Borrell motioned to approve the agenda for December 6, 2004 School Board Work Session; Weber seconded; Hammer asked if the superintendent evaluation and goals could be added; all members voted against approving the agenda.

Chair Lideen said to move item 5 to item 6 and have item 5 be school district goals and superintendent evaluation; Hammer motioned to approve the agenda with the changes; Weber seconded; passed unanimously.

Ladd reviewed communications.

(Item 1) Doering reviewed the proposed budget reduction list.

(Item 2) Ladd reviewed the timeline for mail in ballots for a February 15th mail in election, and said the district needs to notify the county auditors by December 24th. Each board member expressed their opinions on the February timeline verses a later timeline. No consensus was reached, therefore Chair Lideen suggested a Special School Board meeting to discuss when to run the operating levy election. Lideen set a Special School Board meeting for Wednesday December 15, 2004 at 4:30 pm at the Howard Lake High School Media Center. Ladd said we need a timeline of when we want the operating levy election, and the dollar amount, and if we want more than one question.

(Item 3) Schaible motioned to approve the Bus Driver Contract; Weber seconded; passed unanimously.

(Item 4) Ladd reviewed items for the agenda for December 20th school board meeting.

(Item 5) Lideen stated he would have an overview of the superintendent’s review.

Lideen also indicated that a special school board meeting would be held to review this and to set school board goals. The board unanimously agreed to a Special School Board meeting on January 10, 2005 at 6:00 p.m. to discuss the superintendent evaluation and to set the school boards goals.

Hammer motioned to adjourn at 8:45 p.m.; Custer seconded; passed unanimously.

Respectfully submitted,

Allen Doering, Clerk
