Board Minutes January 8, 2018



The CAL Board of Education met for its regular meeting on January 8, 2018 in the CAL District Office.  President Mitch Vanness called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m.  Present were Board Members Mitch Vanness, Cathy Carlson, Beth Podolan, Jacob McNutt and Rob Peil.  Also present were Superintendent Todd Lettow, District Administrator Steve Lane and Secretary Amanda Heiden.


Motion by Peil, second by McNutt, to approve the agenda.  All ayes.


The board recognized Greg Forbes, Dixie Olk and Cub Cadet Staff and Board Members: Robyn Kofoot, Traci Bruns, Melinda Vanness, Jolene McWilliams and Crystal Bezerra as visitors.

The daycare board was invited to have discussion on possibly using the high school wing of the school as its facility.  Mr. Lettow took everyone on a tour of the wing to get an idea of the space that would be available.


Motion by Podolan, second by Carlson, to approve the consent agenda and the paying of the bills.  All ayes.


The Board reviewed the facilities, transportation reports and curriculum reports.  Mr. Lettow gave their administration reports.


Mr. Lettow gave the board a quick update on the construction project for the summer.  He asked that the board consider removing the conference room to keep from using too much of the library, the board agreed.


The Board held discussion on Drivers’ Ed expenses for students whom receive free or reduced lunches and choose to take the course in another district.  The issue died for a lack of a motion, the Board chose not to pay the tuition for students who choose to take the course in another district since it is offered at the CAL District.

Motion by Carlson, second by McNutt, to approve doing a joint newsletter with Hampton-Dumont.  All ayes.

The Board reviewed four open enrollment applications out of the district to Clarion-Goldfield-Dows for the 2018-2019 school year.


The Board will hold a special joint meeting on January 29, 2018 in Hampton at 5:30 p.m. to approve and sign the whole grade sharing agreement.


Motion by McNutt, second by Carlson, to adjourn.  The meeting was adjourned at 8:19 p.m.
