Dundee school board 6/10/10

Meeting: Dundee Central School District board of education met for approximately one and one quarter hours on June 10. The meeting was preceded by an executive session to discuss personnel matters lasting 30 minutes.
Attendance: Board members Kristen VanValkenberg and Carl Christensen were absent. Ten members of the public were in the audience.
Action: Approved the senior trip, a four day cruise to the Bahamas, in November. Seventeen of the 69 students in the incoming senior class are eligible .
• Approved the contract with Superintendent Kathy Ring.
Discussion without action: Ring announced all seniors have completed their service learning requirement for graduation. A total of 703.4 hours were performed.
• Ring said there have been discussions with “Our Town RoCKS” about the possibility of an Operation Graduation program at Dundee. The program provides a safe, fun environment for graduates on graduation night.  The amount of interest will be determined.
• During the public comment portion of the meeting, youth sports coaches Fred Cratsley Jr. and Rob Neu expressed concerns that the school sports fields would not be available for the teams. Cratsley said the soccer program has been offered the use of fields at Freedom Village, but he was concerned about the negative economic impact on the village if the youngsters practice there as well as transportation problems. Ring said they are “O. K. this fall,” adding, “Right now our fields are available. State education department has made no decision yet. All groups will have to find other areas when the field is being done.” Koehler added, “We want to improve our athletic facilities and there is a price to pay.” Renovation of the football field and track is part of the current capital project approved by voters last year.
• Viewed a technology presentation given by computer technician Jeff Snow and computer point person Kathie Sheradin. The program outlined technology services in both the elementary and Junior/Senior high school. Dundee supports 650 computers at this time as well as 17 smart boards. Of the total number of computers, 231 are over six years old.  Koehler asked about the needs and Snow said more smartboards are needed as well as an even rotation of equipment.
Bids/purchases over $1,000: Approved a contract with the Yates County Sheriff’s Department for the 2010-11 School Resource Officer at a cost of $38,161. Costs will be secured through a grant.
Upcoming meetings: June 24, if needed, and reorganizational meeting on July 8. Meetings are  scheduled at 7 p.m. in the public meeting room.
