Mrs. Stella Royal added that the NJROTC group had asked students to donate one dollar for a project to bring one Bloomfield Jr/Sr High School graduate, who is on active duty in the military, home for Christmas. Mrs. Royal said it was a new project for NJROTC and was one that brought a lot of cheer for the person who got to come home and also for those who donated.

2. Board Members Receive Special Recognition. Superintendent Sichting recognized outgoing board members Bill Bond and Eric Moody. Mr. Sichting presented both gentlemen with a plaque commemorating the time they served on the school board and thanked them both for the time they have spent serving Bloomfield students and staff as board members.

 

3. Approval of Minutes. The Board had been provided with minutes of a regular school board meeting held on November 20, 2014, which had been prepared by corporation recording secretary Kelli Usrey. 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 November 20, 2014… ” and ending with the sentence: “The (November 20th) meeting was adjourned by a 7-0 vote.” John Combs seconded the motion, which passed by a 6-0 vote.

5. December Indiana Department of Education State Aid 545 Report. Bloomfield School District received the December Basic Grant payment from the Indiana Department of Education on Monday, December 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 877.43 students and a Full Day Kindergarten class of 68 students.   Bloomfield School Corporation received four hundred sixty nine thousand three hundred eighteen dollars and seventy-eight cents ($469,318.78) on December 15, 2014.   The December Tuition Support payment was reduced by thirteen dollars and forty-six cents ($13.46) due to Medicaid reimbursement received in December by Bloomfield School District. The thirteen dollar and forty-six cent ($13.46) reduction will be transferred to the General Fund from the Medicaid clearing account by Bloomfield School District Treasurer, Mrs. Stacey Robinette.

                The Special Education Grant is based on student counts taken during the 2013-2014 school year. A new Special Education count will be taken on December 1, 2014. The Basic Grant will be adjusted in January to balance out in changes in Special Education student enrollment.

                Bloomfield School District’s December Tuition Support payment was twelve thousand seven hundred eighty three dollars and forty four ($12,783.44) cents less than the November Tuition Support payment. The reason for the decrease in funding was due to Bloomfield School District being overfunded from July through October in the Academic Honors Grant and Vocational Education Grant. As a result, the December Tuition Support payment is being reconciled due to funding additional students during July through October in those two areas.

                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.

 

6. December 2014 Financial Institutions Tax Settlement. On Monday, December 15, 2014, Bloomfield School District received notification of the December 2014 Financial Institutions Tax Settlement from the Greene County Auditor’s Office. The table below summarizes receipts by fund for the 2014 Financial Institutions Tax settlement.   The table also illustrates a comparison of 2014 Financial Institutions Tax receipts to Financial Institutions Tax receipts for 2013, 2012 and 2011:

11. Notification of Excess Title I Carryover Funds. Bloomfield School District received notification from the Indiana Department of Education that the district had not expended the minimum of eighty-five percent of Title I funds during the 2013-2014 school year. As a result of not meeting the mandated minimum spending requirement of eighty-five (85%) during the 2013-2014 school year, the Title I allocation for Bloomfield School District was subject to a reduction in the 2014-2015 Title I allocation of twenty four thousand four hundred forty eight dollars and thirteen cents ($24,448.13).

                Bloomfield School District had to request a waiver from the Indiana Department of Education by December 5, 2014 in order to not be subject to the reduction of the 2014-2015 Title I allocation. Mrs. Mary Jane Vandeventer submitted a letter to the Indiana Department of Education on December 3, 2014 to submit an amendment to exceed the 15% carry-over for the 2014-2015 school year. The request was approved and an amendment to the 2014-2015 Title I Grant is being submitted.

                The reason why Bloomfield School District didn’t expend the minimum of 85% of the Title I Grant in 2013-2014 due to the following reasons:

 

  1. A Title I employee retired mid-year during the 2013-2014 school year. The teacher was

replaced on a temporary basis for the 2nd semester of the 2013-2014 by a less seasoned teacher resulting in a savings in terms of salary.

 

  1. The 2013-2014 Title I budget included allocations for employee health insurance for

employees who had health insurance coverage through a spouse.

 

12. Cafeteria Employee Hired. It was recommended the Board approve the employment of Mrs. Kortnie Lee as a five and a half (5.5) hour cafeteria position. (See Attached) Bill Bond moved to hire Mrs. Lee per Mr. Sichting’s recommendation. Sandy Parkes seconded the motion. Superintendent Sichting explained that Mrs. Kortnie Lee was hired as a three (3) hour cafeteria employee at the November 20, 2014 board meeting per Miss Hendrix’s request. As a three (3) hour employee, Mrs. Lee would make the same hourly rate as a five and a half (5.5) hour employee. Miss Hendrix is requesting that Mrs. Lee be hired as a five and a half (5.5) hour employee in preparation of moving her to a full-time position later when a five and a half (5.5) hour vacancy occurs. Mrs. Lee was hired as a five and a half hour cafeteria employee by a 6-0 vote.

 

13. Board Approves Bloomfield Elementary and Bloomfield Jr/Sr High School Maternity Leave. It was recommended the Board approve a maternity leave for Mrs. Laura Helms who is a Music teacher at Bloomfield Jr.-Sr. High School and Bloomfield Elementary School from on or about Monday, March 9, 2015 through the end of the 2014-2015 school year on or about May 20, 2015. (See Attached) Eric Moody made a motion to approve the recommendation. Bill Bond seconded the motion. The recommendation passed by a 6-0 vote.

 

14. Superintendent’s Contract Extension Approved. It was recommended the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees approve a one-year contract extension for Superintendent Dan Sichting. The current contract expires on June 30, 2016. The one year contract extension would begin on July 1, 2016 and expire on June 30, 2017. No adjustment in base salary is a part of the contract extension.

Sandy Parkes moved to approve the contract extension. Matt Miller seconded the motion. The Superintendent evaluation for the 2013-2014 school year was finalized after the 2013-2014 School Year and District Performance grades were released in November. The Bloomfield School District conducted an evaluation consistent with the new evaluation criteria for Superintendents. The result of the evaluation was an effective performance rating. Vice president Hostetter said a hearing was held on the contract extension consistent with state law on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. He also gave some history of surrounding school districts of their Superintendent’s contract extensions and salaries. State statute requires the hearing to be held ten (10) days after public advertisement and a vote on the contract cannot occur until seven (7) days after the public hearing on the new contract. The contract hearing was advertised in the Greene County Daily World on Friday, November 28, 2014. The Public Hearing was held on Tuesday, December 9, 2014. Mr. Sichting’s contract extension was approved by a 6-0 vote.

 

15. 2014-2015 Extra-Curricular Recommendations. It was recommended the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees approve the following extra-curricular recommendations for the 2014-2015 school year:

 

  • Todd Deaton-Boys’ Varsity Assistant Baseball Coach
  • Stephanie Hill-Elementary Student Council Sponsor
  • Michelle Hughbanks-Sea Perch/Other Clubs Approved by Administration-Jr/Sr High School

                The extra-curricular recommendations were made by Mr. McBride, Mr. Dean and Mrs. Vandeventer. Bill Bond made a motion to approve the entire list as presented. Sandy Parkes seconded the motion, which passed by a 6-0 vote.

 

16. Cafeteria Employee Resigns. Cafeteria worker Dawn Baker submitted her letter of resignation effective January 1, 2015. Mr. Sichting recommended approval.

Mr. Sichting said Ms. Baker had served in the role of a three hour cafeteria employee at Bloomfield School District since May, 2013. He wished Ms. Baker the best of luck in her future employment career.

 

17. Marcus “Red” Oliphant Memorial Donation for Bloomfield Jr/Sr High School Accepted. It was recommended the Board approve a donation for Bloomfield Jr.-Sr. High School Academic Programs in memory of Marcus “Red” Oliphant from Luanna Goetz for one hundred dollars. (See Attached) Sandy Parkes moved to approve the donation. Bill Bond seconded the motion, which passed by a 6-0 vote. Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees has adopted policies for implementation for the school district. The Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees Policy #9510 requires all gifts, bequests, or donations to be approved by the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees.

The Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees, administration and staff would like to thank the generosity of the Oliphant family. Additionally, the Board also thanked Ms. Luanna Goetz for her donation.

 

18. 2015-2016 Bloomfield School District Calendar. It was recommended the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees approve the 2015-2016 calendar. (See Attached) Sandy Parkes made a motion to approve the calendar as presented. Matt Miller seconded the motion. Superintendent Dan Sichting created three (3) calendars for the Bloomfield Teacher’s Associations consideration. A committee comprised of Bloomfield Teacher’s Association members combined the three (3) calendars into two (2) calendars. A google survey of the two calendars was created by a member of the association. Parents, staff, and students were encouraged to voice their opinions. The survey results were:

 

  1. 298 responses favored Calendar 1 (Balanced Calendar)
  2. 1,105 responses favored Calendar 2 (Traditional Calendar)

 

The Google survey didn’t limit responses. So, some of the 1,105 responses were multiple votes from the same IP address.   The difference in responses was still substantial between the two calendars even in eliminating the multiple responses.

        The calendar also lists a commencement on Friday or Saturday. The staff preference would be to move commencement to Friday night, but no formal feedback has been gathered from students or parents. The staff also favors moving Commencement to an earlier time slot on Saturday vacated this year by White River Valley if a Friday Commencement is not an option. The proposed calendar was approved by a 6-0 vote.

 

19. Board Approves Donation to Bloomfield Elementary. It was recommended the Board approve an anonymous donation of three hundred fifty ($350.00) dollars to the Bloomfield Elementary School Extra-Curricular Account for at-risk students. Sandy Parkes moved to approve the donation. John Combs seconded the motion, which passed by a 6-0 vote.

                Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees has adopted policies for implementation for the school district. The Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees Policy #9510 requires all gifts, bequests, or donations to be approved by the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees.

                The generosity of an anonymous donor was the source of the donation. The Bloomfield School District administration, staff, and students would like to publically express our gratitude to the donor for the donation. Additionally, thank you to Mrs. Susan Street, Bloomfield School District “At-Risk” Counselor for facilitating receipt of the donation.

 

20. AdTec E-Rate Agreements Approved. It was recommended the Board approve an E-Rate filing agreement with AdTec for 2013, 2014, and 2015. Sandy Parkes made a motion to approve to approve the agreements as presented. Matt Miller seconded the motion, which passed by a 6-0 vote. Mr. Sichting explained that E-Rate filing in the past had been completed for Bloomfield School District by Mrs. Michelle Mattox. Mrs. Mattox’s job duties have expanded as a result of the 1:1 computer pilot at Bloomfield Jr-Sr. High School. He said as a result, E-Rate filing would be completed by AdTec for Bloomfield School District going forward.

                Mrs. Mattox had completed a large portion of the E-Rate filing for 2013 and 2014. The agreements have a cascading scale due with AdTec completing more of the E-Rate filing in 2015. As a result, the fee for 2015 is substantially higher than 2013 and 2014.

                Recently, the Federal Communication Commission requested the U.S. Congress increase the funds available for E-Rate for 2015. Schools will be able to file for internal connections and wiring for establishing Wi-Fi networks in buildings. As a result of the E-Rate increases, Bloomfield School District would be eligible for approximately $97,000 worth of reimbursement for internal connections.

 

21. Bloomfield School District Bullying Guidelines. Superintendent Sichting began this presentation by covering the Indiana statutes that govern bullying and legal statutes governing the reporting of “at-risk” students. Jr/Sr High School Assistant Principal Mrs. Stella Royal provided information on student reporting of bullying, bullying student instruction, and bullying protocols.

 

22. Bloomfield School District 2014 HEA 1260 Report. Superintendent Sichting told board members the Indiana General Assembly passed legislation previously mandating school districts in Indiana provide an annual report to the State of Indiana Personnel Department. (See Attached) He said the legislation also mandated that local school districts maximum threshold of contributions to employee health insurance premiums could not exceed 112% of the average state contribution to employee health insurance premiums. The Bloomfield School District submitted the annual HEA 1260 report to the State of Indiana Personnel Department on November 20, 2014. The reporting deadline was December 1, 2014. Bloomfield School District’s average health insurance premium contributions for employees were 108% of the state contribution. As a result, Bloomfield School District is within the threshold established by HEA 1260.

 

23. Naming Request for Tennis Courts at the Bloomfield Outdoor Physical Education Facility. Mrs. Laura Kay Rose and Mr. Keven McIntosh have submitted requests for the Bloomfield School District Board of School Trustees to name the six (6) new tennis courts in honor of Mike and Nancy Canty. (See Attached)

                The administration of Bloomfield School District had discussed possible criteria for the consideration of naming facilities in honor of Bloomfield School District patrons or students. The criteria discussed have been longevity, career success, and program influence. Obviously, the Bloomfield High School gymnasium was named in honor of Mr. Guy Glover. At this time, no district policies or guidelines are in place for naming of facilities. Mr. Sichting said he was not ready to make a recommendation at this time until criteria for naming facilities is in place.

 

24. Bloomfield School District FFY 2013 (SY 2013-2014) Special Education Compliance Report. Bloomfield School District received the Indiana Department of Education’s Special Education Compliance Report for FFY 2013 (SY 2013-2014) on December 4, 2014. The Indiana Department of Education routinely looks at a series of indicators to determine compliance for Special Education. These indicators include:

 

  • Rate of suspension or expulsion of Special Education students is significantly larger for students with IEP’s in comparison to General Education students
  • Students from certain race or ethical background with Individual Education Plans are significantly susceptible to expulsion or suspension than other race or ethical backgrounds
  • Students from certain race or ethical backgrounds are more susceptible to be identified for an Individual Education Plan
  • Students are evaluated for placement for Special Education within 50 days of parental consent for evaluation
  • Students are evaluated for placement for Special Education Preschool prior to the child’s 3rd birthday
  • Students reaching age 14 or older have measurable goals for transition purposes

 

Superintendent Sichting told those present that Bloomfield School District was found to be compliant on the federal indicators with no further action required.

 

25. Bloomfield School District Inspection by the Greene County Health Department. Superintendent Sichting provided board members with a copy of a recent inspection report conducted by the Greene County Health Department of the Bloomfield School District Cafeteria showing no violations. (See Attached) Mr. Sichting congratulated Miss Hendrix and her crew for a flawless inspection.

 

26. Indiana University Special Education Grant. Mr. Sichting told board members that he was approached by Indiana University about applying for a Special Education Grant. He said basically colleges are turning out doctoral students that are not well trained in a Special Education classroom. The doctoral students then provide training to university students training to be Special Education students. The grant would provide internship opportunities for doctoral students. Mr. Sichting said he had indicated that Bloomfield School District would be interested in participating in the grant. He said the grant had been turned in, but he had not received word on whether I.U. had been approved or whether Bloomfield School District would be one of the schools that would get to participate in it.

 

27. Comments and information from the public. Tim Latimer, a step grandparent of a Bloomfield Elementary student spoke to board members concerning bullying in Bloomfield Schools stemming from a situation involving his step granddaughter. Mr. Sichting responded to some comments made by Mr. Latimer. Resa Woodruff read a prepared statement on her feelings about bullying at Bloomfield Schools. Parent Rodney Roark spoke on what he believed to be a bullying situation with his son. Mr. Roark thanked Mr. Sichting for listening to what he had to say and said he received a call from Mr. Dean the next day. Mr. Roark thanked both Mr. Sichting and Mr. Dean for acting on the situation as quickly as they did. Billy Vester shared his feelings on bullying at Bloomfield Schools. Parent Dawn Ray was present with her son who is a student at Bloomfield Jr/Sr High School. Ms. Ray spoke on what she thought to be a bullying situation with her son. Vice President Hostetter thanked those who spoke for their participation in the meeting.

 

28. Adjournment. There being no further business Eric Moody moved to adjourn. Bill Bond seconded the motion. The meeting was then adjourned by a 6-0 vote.
