Runyon, Kersteen, Ouellette, auditors of our district finances, presented the report of the audit of FY
14. The audit has a clean opinion; a very solid finance staff and they are very knowledgeable which helps to make the process very smooth. He noted that the firm works for the school board and they should ask questions along the way. Amy Chasse was the manager in charge of the audit and shared that there was an unmodified presentation, which is positive. She then reviewed the audit for the board in some detail.

Superintendent Update:

The Superintendent shared with the board the Adult Education brochure. It’s a great representation of the program.

The Superintendent shared with the board a request from Patrice Glancey, a ninth grade English teacher at Noble High School for a brief leave of absence for an exchange program in China beginning March
1st. The board asked questions regarding what would take place in her classes for the time she is away and the superintendent shared the logistics. The board was supportive and they would really like an update when she returns.

Other business:

Mr. McCabe requested a future conversation regarding social media and the use of our school logo and name. He felt it would be appropriate for permission to be granted by the school system prior to anyone using our logo in social media.

Mr. Price made the motion to adjourn and was seconded by Mr. Cowan. All members voted in favor and the motion passed.

Adjourned at 8:24 pm.

Respectfully Submitted,
