MINUTES OF MEETING
SCHOOL BOARD OF INDEPENDENT SCHOOL DISTRICT NO. 11
(Anoka-Hennepin School District)
STATE OF MINNESOTA
The School Board of Anoka-Hennepin Independent School District No. 11 held a regular meeting on Monday, June 25, 2012, at the Educational Service Center, Coon Rapids, Minnesota.
Vice Chair Hoffman called the meeting to order at 6:30 p.m.
The following members were present: Marci Anderson, John Hoffman, Mike Sullivan and Dr. Scott Wenzel.
Vice Chair Hoffman led the pledge of allegiance.
RECOGNITIONS
The School Board recognized the following staff and groups of students. Each of them was given medals in honor of their achievement.
The School Board recognized Eric Lehtola, Andover High School’s athletic director, for being named a certified athletic administrator by the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association (NIAAA). Lehtola was introduced by Andover Principal Rhonda Dean who outlined the comprehensive process Lehtola undertook for this certification.
Jeff Mueller, transportation safety coordinator, introduced Sandra Weinstock, a bus paraeducator who received a 2011-12 Minnesota Special Education Transportation Award and a District Transportation Specialist Award for keeping students safe during a bus accident in December. Mueller said that from the corner of her eye, Weinstock saw a car coming at the bus and her reaction was to protect the students. Keith Paulson, Transportation Department director, said Weinstock’s action was a tremendous show of how she cares about students.
Lynn Montgomery introduced students from two Anoka-Hennepin School District teams who joined more than 21,000 students from all over the world to compete at the Destination Imagination (DI) Global Finals in May in Tennessee. Competing in the architecture challenge, a team from Coon Rapids High School (CRHS) placed 12th in the world with their structure. A second team, consisting of students from CRHS, Blaine High School and Northdale Middle School, placed 29th in the improvisational challenge category. The teams were coached by volunteers Doug, Marian and Becky Boorman.

COMMUNICATIONS DELEGATIONS OR PETITIONS
Rick Heller followed up with School Board members with information relating to students with print disabilities.
Superintendent Carlson gave a report to the board and reviewed the board calendar. There is only one Board meeting in July on the 9th. In the report are updates from open forums and other matters. Mary Olson introduced Kay Pavel, Assistant Director of Communications and Public Relations. Kay will replace Brett Johnson who has left the district.
Jeff McGonigal, associate superintendent of high school, and Nancy Chave, Crossroads High School principal, briefed the School Board on the plan to best provide students who are 18 to 21 years old multiple pathways to earn a high school degree and other credentials to enter the job market or continue their education. Anoka-Hennepin School District will dedicate the Crossroads Alternative High School’s West Campus in Champlin to these students this fall. Crossroads West will offer students individualized schedules, online options and career- and college-related real world connections. Chave is working closely with Anoka-Hennepin’s Secondary Technical Education Program (STEP), Anoka Ramsey Community College, Anoka Technical College, and the Anoka County Workforce Center to provide students with a variety of opportunities to gain jobs skills as they earn their high school diplomas. The district’s Adult Basic Education (ABE) program is also a partner. Once students reach the age of 21, if they have not completed their work at Crossroads West, they will transition into the ABE program to complete their work. The school can accommodate 170 students; currently about 145 are enrolled. McGonigal said helping students to earn their high school diploma isn’t just getting them to a finish line; it is launching them into their future. Chave thanked the School Board for supporting alternative education in the district.
Greg Cole, principal of the Compass Program, presented changes to the district’s Student Discipline Policy. Under the proposed changes the possession, use and/or transmission of “tobacco in any form” is expanded to include “nicotine products, electronic cigarettes or look-a-likes in any form.” Students are no longer allowed to bring chemical irritants, such as pepper spray or mace, to school and check them in at the office. While the school district forbids the possession, use or distribution of weapons by students, a superintendent’s designee may use discretion in determining whether, under specific circumstances outlined by district administration and the School Board, a lesser discipline than referral for expulsion is warranted. The proposed changes will be included on the July 9 consent agenda for final approval.
To reflect the expansion of online learning, Jeff McGonigal and Ellen Delaney, director of Secondary Curriculum, Instruction and Assessment, proposed changes to the district’s online learning policy. The former policy applied to expelled students using online learning options. The new language expands the policy to include students taking online courses and includes a new section to apply to students who will enroll in an Anoka-Hennepin online high school when it is developed.
The new section addressing the online high school calls for the district to:
• Allow students to apply for online learning.
• Grant academic credit for completing requirements through work online.
• Provide online and students at high schools the same access to computer hardware and education software.
• Provide non-academic services to online students.
• Allow online students to participate in extracurricular activities.
• Follow federal and state rules and laws concerning special education students.
Language addressing participation in extracurricular activities by students who are expelled, excluded or withdrawn was added. The language was suggested by the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL). Language limiting the number of students using online learning, definitions of an “online learning student” and who provides online learning were deleted. A “learning pathway,” describing students’ attendance, transportation and support programs was also deleted. The proposed policy changes will be included on the July 9 consent agenda.
Chuck Holden, chief operating officer, presented a “Health and Safety Policy.” Although there has been a district Health, Wellness and Safety Committee since 1999, and there is a health and safety budget, there has not been a health and safety policy. (Wellness was added after the original committee was formed in 1999 and the district does have a wellness policy.) A change in state statute requires the district to have a health and safety policy.
The purpose of the policy is to assist the school district in promoting health and safety, reducing injuries, and complying with federal, state and local health and safety laws and regulations.
The policy of the school district is to implement a health and safety program that includes plans and procedures to protect employees, students, volunteers, and members of the general public who enter school district buildings and grounds.
The objectives of the health and safety program will be to:
• Provide a safe and healthy learning environment.
• Increase safety awareness
• Help prevent accidents, illnesses, and injuries
• Reduce liability
• Assign duties and responsibilities to school district staff to implement and maintain the health and safety program
• Establish written procedures for the identification and management of hazards or potential hazards
• Train school district staff on safe work practices
• Comply with all health and safety, environmental, and occupational health laws, rules, and regulations.
All school district employees have a responsibility for maintaining a safe and healthy environment within the school district and are expected to be involved in the health and safety program to the extent practicable. For the purpose of implementing the policy, the administration will, within the budgetary limitations adopted by the School Board, implement a health and safety program that includes specific plan requirements in various areas as identified by the health and safety advisory committee. Holden presented the $2.2 million health and safety budget for fiscal year 2014. The largest portion of the budget is for environmental management, which includes staff development and computer programs. The second largest budget item is asbestos abatement. School Board members will review the proposed policy and budget for approval at the July 9 meeting. School Board member Scott Wenzel recommended they get the budget earlier.
The board approved a resolution discontinuing positions for two paraeducator positions in supplemental programs and one project manager position for technology and information systems.
RESOLUTION DISCONTINUING AND REDUCING
EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS AND POSITIONS
Member Wenzel introduced the resolution and moved its adoption:

WHEREAS, said recommendations have been received and considered by the School Board,
BE IT RESOLVED by the School Board of Anoka-Hennepin Independent School District No. 11 as follows:

Classified Positions Reductions Number of Position
Paraeducator Supplemental Programs 2
Miscellaneous Project Manager Tech/Info Systems 1
That the motion for the adoption of the foregoing resolution was duly seconded by Board Member Sullivan and upon vote being taken thereon, the following voted in favor: Anderson, Hoffman, Sullivan, Wenzel and the following voted against: None whereupon said resolution was declared duly passed and adopted.
The board approved a resolution rescinding the termination of eight probationary teachers whose positions had been terminated earlier in the year when it was not yet certain if positions would be available for them.
PROPOSED RESOLUTION TO RESCIND THE INCLUSION OF CERTAIN TEACHERS’
NAMES IN RESOLUTION TERMINATING PROBATIONARY TEACHERS
Member Wenzel introduced the resolution and moved its adoption:

That the motion for the adoption of the foregoing resolution was duly seconded by Anderson and upon vote being taken thereon, the following voted in favor, Anderson, Hoffman, Sullivan, Wenzel and the following voted against None.
Whereupon said resolution was declared duly passed and adopted.
Dr. Joel VerDuin, chief technology and information officer; David Treichel, instructional technology facilitator; and Greg Cole, COMPASS principal, shared revisions to the Acceptable Use of Electronic Information, Communication and Technology Resources policy and guidelines. Personnel from the Secondary Best Practice in Technology Integration and Technology Steering Committees worked for more than a year to enhance the policy and its guidelines in order to more closely align with the district’s educational objectives. An additional paragraph was added to the policy complying with the Children’s Internet Protection Act (CIPA), which focuses on teaching appropriate Internet use and networking: “the school district has created units of learning to educate students about appropriate online behavior, including interacting with other individuals on social networking websites and in chat rooms and cyber bullying awareness and response.” Guideline revisions included additional language on properly using the district’s wireless network with personal electronic devices (smartphones, tablets, netbooks or laptops) during the school day. This fall will be the first opportunity for staff and students to access the network in what the district has coined “AH-Mobile.” The new guidelines outline parameters for this access, most notably that capturing photo, video or audio recordings without permission from a teacher or administrator is prohibited. The full policy and slideshow shared with the School Board can be found in the June 25 agenda. A final approval is expected at the next meeting.
The School Board approved a resolution authorizing the district to borrow up to $35,016,800 for cash flow purposes. This is necessary because the state legislature enacted a payment shift as a strategy to balance the state’s budget. As a result of the shift, the state will delay payment to the district of 64.3 percent of its state aid, or approximately $107 million, until after the fiscal year has ended. Vargas noted that the amount of borrowing needed is down by several million dollars because the state reduced the amount of the shift slightly and the district has reserve funds.
The borrowing will occur through the sale of general obligation aid anticipation certificates, which will be issued Aug. 30, 2012 and paid back by Sept. 10, 2013 with state aids received through June 30, 2013.
Michelle Vargas, chief financial officer, said she will not know the interest rate on the certificates until they are sold in mid August. The district has been able to invest money from the sale of similar certificates at a higher interest rate until it is needed, which reduces the total cost of borrowing. She noted that several districts are working together on this sale to get a better interest rate. For the current fiscal year the district borrowed $42,128,570. Net interest costs were $120,394 and issuance costs were $91,720. Investment earnings are estimated at $115,500, bringing the net cost for borrowing down to an estimated $96,614.

The School Board approved the district’s budget for the 2012-13 fiscal year as reviewed by Michelle Vargas, chief financial officer. The board had heard a more detailed overview of the budget at the May 21 meeting. Revenues for the General Fund, which covers the costs of educating students including teachers, textbooks, transportation and more, are projected at $407.8 million, a decrease of about $4.5 million, or 1.1 percent, due to several factors including the loss of $7 million in one-time federal EdJobs stimulus dollars. However, there will be an increase of nearly $6 million in state revenue as the result of new Literacy Incentive Aid, an increase in general education revenue of $50 per student, and increases in special education and basic skills revenue. The district will also receive an additional $3 million in local taxes as a result of voter approval of a capital projects levy for technology last November. Expenditures are projected at $415.5 million, an increase of approximately 4.5 percent. Approximately $5 million of the increase is from the combination of the $3 million technology levy approved by voters and $2 million in Literacy Incentive Aid, which is a new state funding source that will be used to expand a kindergarten readiness program for four-year-olds and all-day-every-day kindergarten in schools with greatest need. Another $4.4 million is the result of strategic investments in educational programs approved by the board at the last meeting. Energy costs as well as property and liability insurance are expected to increase by 3 percent and capital expenditures on technology by $3 million. Salaries are estimated to increase by 2 to 2.5 percent based on previously negotiated contracts. Social Security and retirement contributions will also increase an estimated 2.5 percent and there will be an extra .5 percent TRA contribution increase mandated by the legislature. On the other hand, health and dental benefits plus group life and disability insurance premiums are expected to remain at 2009-2010 levels and the current contract for transportation includes no increase even after a 4 percent decrease for the current year. Under the proposed budget, the unassigned fund balance will be approximately $39.3 million on June 30, 2013, which is 9.5 percent of expenditures. The district has a goal of maintaining a fund balance of at least 5 percent and the Government Finance Officers Association recommends a fund balance of 5 to 15 percent so the projected balance is well within guidelines, according to Vargas. In the Food Service Fund, the district expects revenue of nearly $18 million and expenditures of $19.5 million. The $1.5 million deficit is covered through a substantial $5 million fund balance, which is nearly 26 percent of annual expenditures. No increase in the price of meals is planned. The district expects to receive about $740,000 additional federal revenue due to increasing numbers of students qualifying for free or reduced cost meals. Vargas noted that local sales are decreasing by about $570,000 due to the economy and the impact of declining enrollment. The Community Service Fund shows projected revenue of approximately $18.5 million and expenditures of $18.3 million with a fund balance of nearly $4 million or approximately 22 percent of annual expenditures. The increase in both revenue and expenditures is less than 1 percent. Revenue increases are due primarily to increases in the enrollment in Adventures Plus school-age childcare and Community School participation, which are both fee-based programs. There is also a federal revenue increase linked to the Adult Basic Education program. The Capital Projects Fund consists of money from the Alternative Facilities Levy, which is levied in the General Fund and transferred into the Capital Projects Fund to pay for building improvements. The district expects to spend the entire $3.7 million that will go into this fund, leaving a fund balance for the third year of $721,792. The Debt Service Fund is used for paying principal and interest on bonded debt for school construction. The district currently owes $113 million. Revenues for this fund will be about $22.5 million and expenditures $22.7 million with an ending fund balance of $4.8 million. This fund will remain static for several years and then drop off substantially in fiscal year 2016 when a large share of the debt is retired. The Trust Fund is used for managing scholarships and the Other Post Employment Benefits (OPEB) trust fund managed by Wells Fargo. Revenue will remain stable at $1.2 million and expenditures at approximately $2.2 million. There is a balance of $28.8 million in this fund. When all funds are combined, total revenues are expected to be $471.6 million and expenditures to be $481.8 million, leaving a projected fund balance of $131.4 million. Mike Sullivan moved the budget for approval, Dr. Scott Wenzel seconded. Motion passed.
