_________ Minutes _________

The regular meeting of the Brandon Valley Board of Education, Brandon, SD was held at 6:30 p.m. on the 28th of March 2022 at the Brandon Valley High School Community Room with the following members present:  Renee Ullom, Gregg Ode, Ellie Saxer (via phone), Nick Scott, and Gregg Talcott.  Absent: None.  Also present were Superintendent Jarod Larson, Business Manager Paul Lundberg, High School Principal Mark Schlekeway, High School Associate Principal Jordan Paula, Middle School Principal Brad Thorson, Intermediate School Principal Nick Skibsted, Robert Bennis Elementary Principal Kristin Hofkamp, Valley Springs/Inspiration Elementary Principal Tanya Palmer, and Special Services Director Wendy Otheim.

Renee Ullom called the regular meeting to order at 6:30 p.m., beginning with the Pledge of Allegiance.

Motion by Talcott, seconded by Ode to approve the agenda as presented.  Motion carried.

BVHS Associate Principal Jordan Paula, along with Staff Advisor Amy Frantzen and several student advisors presented tonight’s Good New Report highlighting the District’s Best Buddies Program.  Best Buddies is an International Organization that promotes 1:1 friendship outside of school with student/peer interactions.  Brandon Valley started this program in 2016 as the first school in South Dakota and now is 80-100 members strong.  They strive to plan two group events per month outside of school, including a buddy match program, bowling, pumpkin painting, movies, games, and this year, a Best Buddies prom.  Superintendent Jarod Larson relayed his pride with this group and congratulated this excellent addition to Brandon Valley activities!

Administrative reports were presented.   Superintendent Jarod Larson reported on the following:

The COVID-19 Information Website: https://brandonvalley.k12.sd.us/covid/covid.html is the centralized communication hub.   THE MESSAGE:  If you are sick – stay home!  COVID-19 vaccination available for children ages  5-11.  Larson encouraged families to communicate with their primary care provider and make the right personal choice for their situation.  Our plan is to revert back to our pre-COVID protocol for next year.

The 2022-23 Budget process began in early January, 2022, with the distribution of budget forms/documents.  The Business Office has reviewed and compiled these documents throughout March of 2022.  At the February 28, 2022 meeting, the 2022-23 new staffing requests were presented.  At the March 14, 2022 meeting the preliminary Capital Outlay budget was presented for approval in order for major items to be bid in a timely manner. Negotiations and wage/salary recommendations will be reviewed in April of 2022.   In May 2022, a preliminary budget presentation will take place, and in July 2022, we will hold the public budget hearing for potential action.

The 2022-23 negotiations timeline/wage recommendations have begun with a pre-negotiation meeting between the BVSD Admin and the Brandon Valley Education Association (BVEA) on Wednesday, March 16, 2022.  The Personnel Welfare committee met on March 22, 2022 with a scheduled BOE Executive Session for negotiations preparations scheduled for tonight’s meeting (March 28, 2022).  A Personnel Welfare/BVEA Negotiations meeting is then scheduled for March 30, 2022 (with additional dates scheduled thereafter, if necessary).  Tentatively, at the April 11, 2022 Board of Education regular meeting, we will plan to ratify the 2022-23 Master Contract, approve Classified wage recommendation/approve Administration salary recommendation, and enter Superintendent contract negotiations.

The USDA update on free school breakfast/lunch will end on June 30, 2022.  The free and reduced application will be critical paperwork for the 2022-23 school year to qualify for free or reduced meals for the 2022-23 school year.  The Brandon Valley School District is no longer eligible for the Summer Feeding Program and we will have no summer lunch program the summer of 2022.  The Child Nutrition department plans to provide the ELL Summer School Program with lunches utilizing the Child Nutrition Services Charitable Needs Fund.

 Good new reports will be held at the second meeting of the month. Thank you to the Special Services department and the Best Buddies program for tonight’s presentation.  The following schools will present in the future: April-Middle School; and May-High School.
