Jen Wilwert gave the board an overview of the ISASP test scores and explained how scores continue to
improve and staff is working very hard to make sure our students are proficient in the three areas of
testing: English, math, and science. It was noted that the tests are a snapshot of a student’s ability and
cannot factor in outside distractions, such as illness, hunger, or anxiety.

per gallon for dyed fuel oil and $1.78 per gallon for LP. Motion carried unanimously.

Administration Reports:

Kathy Koether, Elementary Principal: The Class of 1972 had a reunion recently and donated $1,500 to
the elementary. Enrollment looks to be trending upward in the elementary again this year.
Construction continues to progress. Even though it is not ideal to start the new school year in a
construction zone, plans are in place to work around issues and the end result will make the temporary
inconvenience worthwhile.

Denise Mueller, Middle School Principal: Many projects were completed over the summer including
painting, locks, gym floor, window wraps, bathroom sinks, shelving and the addition of a Zen Room – a
safe, relaxing space for students. Summer school was held in McGregor this year, scheduling is being
done, transition meetings are happening, CPI and T-track training, and the AEA will be assisting with co-teaching skills this year.

Dr. Crozer, Superintendent: An energy audit will be conducted this fall. The daycares received over
$90,000.00 in grant funds, an application for an electric bus was filed with the EPA. The district is still
planning to purchase or lease an LP powered bus within the next year.

The meeting adjourned at 4:42 pm.

The next meeting will be on September 12 at 6:00 pm in the Learning Commons at the Monona center.

Respectfully Submitted,

Karla Hanson
Board Secretary
