Bill Bond made a motion to approve the minutes beginning with the sentence: “The Board of School Trustees of the Bloomfield School District, of Greene County, Indiana, met in regular session on September 25, 2014… ” and ending with the sentence: “The meeting was then adjourned by a 7-0 vote.” Eric Moody seconded the motion, which passed by a 5-0 vote.

 

3. Treasurer’s Report. The Board had been provided with the Treasurer’s Report, prepared by corporation treasurer Stacey Robinette.

Sandy Parkes seconded the motion, which passed by a 5-0 vote.  

 

4. Approve Resolution of Appropriations and Tax Rates for Bloomfield School District 2015 Budget. It was recommended the Board approve the Resolution of Appropriations and Tax Rates for Bloomfield School District 2015 Budget. (See Attached) Sandy Parkes made a motion to approve the Resolution as presented. Bill Bond seconded the motion.   The Bloomfield School District 2015 budget and plans were properly advertised on Friday, September 5, 2014 and Friday, September 12, 2014 in The Greene County Daily World. A public hearing was held on the Bloomfield School District 2015 Budget on Thursday, September 25, 2014. An error was made by the Greene County Daily World due to a change in software and the 2015 Bloomfield School District Capital Projects Plan was advertised for the second time on Saturday, September 13, 2014. Superintendent Dan Sichting contacted the Indiana Department of Government Finance concerning the publication of the 2015 Bloomfield School District Capital Projects Plan on a different publication date as the rest of the 2015 budget. Guidance from the Indiana Department of Local Government Finance was to obtain a written statement from the Greene County Daily World concerning the error. A written statement was obtained from the Greene County Daily World on September 15, 2014 concerning the error.

Superintendent Sichting stated that no patrons were present during the public hearing to voice any objections and no petitions objecting to the budgets, tax rates, or tax levies had been filed. He said no changes had been made to the budgets since they were advertised and the public hearing was held. Given these considerations and completion of the applicable legal requirements, the budget and plans were now before the Board for final adoption.

                The rates advertised by the Bloomfield School District are elevated than the final rates due to adjustments to be made in total assessed valuation and other statutorily mandated maximum levies and tax rates. The Department of Local Government Finance will review the budget and make changes or “cuts” to bring the budget in line with those statutorily created maximum levies and tax rates. A comparison of the advertised levies and certified levies for the previous six years (2009-2014) budgets was provided during the August 27, 2014 and September 25, 2014 school board meetings. The Resolution was passed by a 5-0 vote.

 

5. Board Approves 2015 Bloomfield School District Capital Projects Fund Plan. It was recommended the Board approve the resolution for the 2015 Bloomfield School District Capital Projects Fund plan. (See Attached)   Eric Moody moved to approve the recommendation. Sandy Parkes seconded the motion, which passed by a 5-0 vote.

 

6. 2015 Bloomfield School District Bus Replacement Plan Approved. It was recommended the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees approve the resolution for the 2015 Bloomfield School District Bus Replacement Plan. (See Attached) Bill Bond made a motion to approve the recommendation. Eric Moody seconded the motion, which passed by a 5-0 vote.

 

7. Board Approves 2015 Neutrality Resolution for Pension Debt. It was recommended the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees approve the 2015 Bloomfield School District Neutrality Resolution for Retirement/Severance Pension Debt Service. (See Attached) Bill Bond moved to approve the recommendation. Eric Moody seconded the motion, which passed by a 5-0 vote.

 

8. 2015 Resolution to Adjust Appropriations Approved. It was recommended the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees approve the resolution to adjust appropriations as needed upon the Department of Local Government Finance issuing the 1782 notice for Bloomfield School District’s 2015 budget. Sandy Parkes moved to approve the recommendation. John Combs seconded the motion. The Bloomfield School District budget is built annually to raise the maximum levy or rate for each of the district’s funds. However, changes occur in assessed valuation, fund balances, or state tuition support requiring adjustments in appropriations within a budget. This resolution provides Superintendent Dan Sichting and Bloomfield School District Treasurer Stacey Robinette authority to make all necessary adjustments in appropriations deemed as necessary for the 2015 budget. The motion was approved by a 5-0 vote.

 

9. Neutrality Resolution to Comply with IC 20-48-1-2. The Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees passed a Neutrality Resolution to Comply with IC 20-48-1-2 on October 25, 2012. The resolution stated Bloomfield School District would be neutralizing 25% of the amount needed to neutralize the Retirement/Severance Pension Bonds for 2015. As a result, Bloomfield School District will reduce the Capital Projects Fund by 25% of property tax levy needed to pay the Retirement/Pension Bonds for Bloomfield School District for budget year 2015. (See Attached copy of the resolution adopted in October 2012).

 

10. October Indiana Department of Education State Aid 545 Report. Bloomfield School District received the October Basic Grant payment from the Indiana Department of Education on Wednesday, October 15, 2014. The Basic Grant includes a tuition support payment per ADM, Academic Honor Diploma Grant, Special Education Grant, Vocational Education Grant, Complexity Grant, and a Full Day Kindergarten Grant. The current funding is based on an ADM of 867 students and a Full Day Kindergarten class of 51 students.   Bloomfield School Corporation received four hundred forty nine thousand nine hundred ten dollars and twenty-five cents ($449,910.25) on October 15, 2014.   The October Tuition Support payment was reduced by nine dollars and ninety-eight cents ($9.98) due to Medicaid reimbursement received in October by Bloomfield School District. The nine dollar and ninety-eight dollar ($9.98) reduction will be transferred to the General Fund from the Medicaid clearing account by Bloomfield School District Treasurer, Mrs. Stacey Robinette.

                The Vocational Education Grant and Special Education Grant are both based on student counts taken during the 2013-2014 school year. After the 2014-2015 ADM count is taken for the Fall semester, the Basic Grant will be balanced out to take into account any changes in ADM, Full Day Kindergarten enrollment, or Vocational education enrollment. The Basic Grant will be adjusted in January to balance out any changes in Special Education student enrollment. Bloomfield School District is currently being under funded based on the May, 2014 projections made to the Indiana Department of Education. The Indiana Department of Education will finalize the ADM and Full Day Kindergarten Enrollments from Friday, September 12, 2014 and will amend the monthly distributions for the SA 545 Basic Grant payments beginning with the November, 2014 payment.

                In 2010, Bloomfield School District was receiving one million thirty eight thousand seven hundred thirty eight dollars ($1,038,738) more in calendar year funding.   Bloomfield School District has lost 17% of funding. The loss of funding is due to a drop in student enrollment along with the loss of the Small Schools Grant and Rural Schools Grant.   In comparison, Bloomfield School District has lost 19% of the student enrollment.

 

11. Certification of Estimated General Fund Revenue. Bloomfield School District received the Certification of Estimated General Fund Revenue from the Indiana Department of Education on October 13, 2014. The Certification of Estimated General Fund is required by IC 20-29-8-12.5(b). The Indiana Department of Education is certifying the following estimate of revenue for the Bloomfield School District General Fund for fiscal year 2015:

 

  • Basic Tuition Support-$3,995,084.00
  • Honors Diploma Grant-$28,000.00
  • Special Education Grant-$272,421.00
  • Career and Technical Education-$106,600.00
  • Complexity Grant-$873,338.00
  • Full Day Kindergarten-$123,600.00
  • Total-$5,399,042.00

 

The estimated revenue for fiscal year 2015 is inaccurate in a couple of areas. Currently, Bloomfield School District is estimating the December 1, 2014 Special Education count to be lower than the December 1, 2013 Special Education count. As a result, the revenue for the Special Education Grant will be lower than certified. If the Special Education count was held on October 21, 2014, Bloomfield School District would have received approximately two hundred sixty thousand five hundred eighty four ($260,584) dollars in Special Education funding for fiscal year 2015.

Additionally, the Career and Technical Education Grant’s estimate is also higher than the expected grant proceeds. On Friday, September 12, 2014, the ADM for Career and Technical Education would have generated approximately ninety seven thousand and fifty ($97,050) dollars.

Due to the estimated decline in revenues in the areas of the Special Education Grant and Career and Technical Education Grant, it is estimated the revenue for fiscal year 2015 for the Bloomfield School District General Fund will be twenty one thousand three hundred eighty two ($21,382) dollars less than the Indiana Department of Education’s certification.

 

12. Approval of Title II, Part A, Improving Teacher Quality and Effectiveness Application. Bloomfield School District received notification from the Indiana Department of Education the application for the Tittle II, Part A, Improving Teacher Quality and Effectiveness Application was approved. The Title II, Part A, Improving Teacher Quality and Effectiveness Application was due on September 30, 2014 in the Indiana Department of Education office. Bloomfield School District will receive twenty eight thousand three hundred seventeen ($28,317) dollars in Title II, Part A Grant funding for FY 2015.

                Bloomfield School District is planning on using the funds in the following manner:

 

  • Category 1-Recruitment, Retention, Incentives, and Differentiated Pay Activities-$18,317
  • Category 3-Class Size Reduction-$10,000

 

13. Custodial II Employee Hired. It was recommended the Board employ Mr. Jeffrey Montgomery as a Custodial II employee at Bloomfield School District effective Monday, October 27, 2014.

22. Notice of Termination of Long Term Disability Insurance Carrier Approved.

(See Attached) Eric Moody moved to approve the recommendation. Sandy Parkes seconded the motion.

                The administration of Bloomfield School District and the Bloomfield Teacher’s Association began looking at options and changes for the Long Term Disability Insurance coverage for employees of Bloomfield School District in May, 2014. In June, 2014, representatives from the Bloomfield Teacher’s Association, Superintendent Dan Sichting, and Treasurer Stacey Robinette met with rival carriers. In August, 2014, members of the Bloomfield Teacher’s Association heard presentations from the current carrier, Madison National Life Insurance through National Insurance Services, and the proposed carrier, Guardian Life Insurance Company through Neace Luekens Insurance Services.

The Bloomfield Teacher’s Association and the Bloomfield School District administration made a mutual decision to switch the carrier of Long Term Disability Insurance to Guardian Insurance. The following are cited as reasons for the switch:

 

  • Guardian’s AM Best Rating of “A”
  • Guardian’s ability to offer a taxable and non-taxable benefit
  • Term Life Insurance Coverage and Long Term Disability Insurance will be provided by the same carrier which is considered an industry best solution

The recommendation was approved by a 5-0 vote.

 

23. Memorandum of Understanding between the BTA and the Bloomfield School District. It was recommended the Board approve the memorandum of understanding with the Bloomfield Teacher’s Association concerning the carrier and terms of the Long Term Disability Insurance program for employees of Bloomfield School District.

                Bloomfield School District’s Long Term Disability Insurance coverage was with Madison National Life Insurance and administered through National Insurance Services. The Long Term Disability Insurance through Madison National Life Insurance Company had the following terms:

 

  • Long Term Disability Insurance after a ninety (90) day waiting period
  • Employees would receive 66 2/3% of annual salary for the first five years of disability.
  • After five years, the coverage would increase to 90% of annual salary.
  • Non-Integration with Public Employees Retirement Fund and Indiana Teachers Retirement Fund
  • Long Term Disability Insurance benefit was taxable

 

This coverage was very costly. In the last eight (8) years, no Bloomfield School District employee has utilized the Long Term Disability Insurance program for more than two (2) years.

                Bloomfield School District’s Long Term Disability Coverage is being recommended to switch to Guardian Insurance Company. The Long Term Disability Insurance through Guardian Insurance Company will have the following terms:

 

  • Long Term Disability Insurance after a ninety (90) day waiting period
  • Employees will receive 60% of annual salary if the employee chooses a taxable benefit plan.
  • Employees will receive 66 2/3% of annual salary if the employee chooses a non-taxable benefit.
  • Integration with Public Employees Retirement Fund and Indiana Teachers Retirement Fund
  • Cost of Living Adjustments in which no cost of living adjustments occur within the first five years of coverage, but the cost of living adjustments are unlimited after exceeding five years of coverage.
  • Term Life Insurance and Long Term Disability Insurance is now administered by Guardian Life Insurance.

 

The recommendation passed by a 5-0 vote.

 

24. Clinical Affiliation Agreement with Vincennes University Approved. It was recommended the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees approve an updated Clinical Affiliation Agreement between Vincennes University and Bloomfield School District to provide Vincennes University Nursing students a clinical experience at Bloomfield School District from Thursday, October 30, 2014 through July 31, 2016.

                The recommendation was approved by a 5-0 vote.

 

 

 

25. Approve Additions and Amendments to the Bloomfield School District Non- Certified Employee Handbook.
