The Greenwood School Board reviewed their Operational Plan.

Discussion centered on the current approach to contact tracing. The Board reiterated its concern for students missing school, so no changes to the plan were made.

The Board also received an initial proposal from administration to offer a path for teachers to complete reading teacher licensure through the district. The Board requested more information be provided at the next regular board meeting.

The Board also received an update on active projects, maintenance and repair and re-approved the School Safety Plans. The Board also received a 2021-22 budget update from Ms. Zimmer and tabled the discussion of the 2021-22 District Priorities.

The Board also discussed whether to provide Covid leave for staff. No action was taken. The item will be revisited at the December meeting. The Board also accepted a grant from Spark Young Minds. This grant provides a variety of welding equipment valued at $3,000.

The Board also approved 6 volunteers including Steven Arch as a Substitute Employer, Taylor Hand as a Student Teacher, Shawn Kolano as a Youth Basketball Coach, Vincente Morales as a Youth Basketball Coach, Abby Rowan as a Youth Basketball Coach, Walker Suda as a Assistant Boys Basketball Coach, and Steve Travis as a Youth Basketball Coach. The Board also approved the FFA Rodeo Trip to St. Paul, MN and the FBLA State Leadership Conference in Madison.

Board Member Dean Lindner reported the Co-Curriculars Committee reviewed participation numbers for athletics including the new eSports team and had a discussion on creating a developmental systems approach to the District’s athletic programs.

For the Administrators’ Reports, Elementary Principal Joe Green provided an update on the annual Thanksgiving Reading Challenge and the enrollment at the elementary school continues to rise.

District Administrator Todd Felhofer provided an update on the individual teacher meetings held in October and the staff development activities on November 3rd.

He also stated the district must raise adult breakfast and lunch prices to a minimum of $2.56 as part of the participation in the SSO program. The 1-Act play qualified for the state-level competition on November 19th.
