Superintendent's Report

Superintendent Collins updated the board on several items:

•Free Energy Analysis: Due to the School District's association The Center for Efficient School Operations, retired engineers will do a quarterly energy audit free of charge to continue to look at energy consumption in the district and provide feedback.

•Crisis/emergency Preparedness Meetings at each site: Mr. Collins informed board members that during the month of February, each site will be conducting site by site meetings to look at emergency preparedness, practices and procedures. A consultant who works with our Health and Safety Plan will offer suggestions and improvements to our current practices at each site.

•Mr. Collins reviewed with the board that at the recent Minnesota School Board Association Winter Retreat, a panel of Superintendent's provided feedback on the Principal Evaluation System they have been involved in piloting.

•Budget Comments: Mr. Collins briefly addressed some of the items that were addressed in Governor Dayton's State of the State address and how it could impact schools, but reminded the board that until the session is over it is difficult to predict how school funding will be impacted. In addition, Mr. Collins commented to the board that the Finance Committee met for an hour before the evening meeting and that the Finance would be meeting to address a course of action for cuts to the budget.
