by Amanda York Staff Writer

The Cloverdale Community School Corporation board met on June 13th for their first meeting of the corporation summer break and the last for board members Jim Sharp and Tony Hacker. Sharp and Hacker will be replaced on the board next month with incoming members Duane Huge and Brian Asbury.

After the organizational portion of the meeting, local citizen, CHS parent and Indiana State Teachers Association employee Kim Fidler asked to address the board, reading from a prepared statement. In the statement, Fidler addressed several education reform bills recently passed including House Bill 1260 (school corporation health insurance bill), Senate bill I (teacher evaluation bill), Senate Bill 575 (collective bargaining bill), House Bill 1001 (budge bill) and House Bill 1002 (charter school bill). She asked the board to “delay the devastation” that is planned for all traditional public schools by “working together to preserve local decision-making” and “settle a contract.”

Following the public speaking time, the board moved on to approve routine matters including May 9th meeting minutes, claims, and financial reports.

Upon completion, the panel moved on to communications, hearing from CCSC Superintendent Dr. Carrie Milner regarding several CHS programs including top senior awards, FFA, advanced placement students and band/choir all-music award recognition. At the recently held top senior awards dinner, retiring teachers were also honored including Carolyn Mann, Jane Irwin and Sandy Phipps.

During this time in the meeting, band director Bill Cole and choir teacher Debby Lambert presented a banner proclaiming Cloverdale High School as only one of four schools out of 348 in the state to receive the Indiana State School Music Association all-music award.

The board also heard updates from Dr. Milner on the Area 30 Career Center senior awards program, summer camp, CMS awards program and changes to the Indiana Code 30-130 regarding attendance, turning names of habitually absent students over to juvenile court or the department of child services. It was noted that CCSC policy is already in line with the IC code and therefore no action needed to be taken.

With no old business on the agenda, the board moved on to new business, voting to approve setting a budget review and adoption schedule, an application for Title I funds and the authorization to sign agreements for alternative services and private residential school placements.

Next the board heard from Jeff Underwood regarding physical operations, lighting and electrical issues within the corporation. The board also heard and voted on a proposal from Darren Lambert with Musco Lighting. After a short presentation and after board questions were answered the board voted to approve the lease to purchase agreement of the equipment from Musco Lighting. Details will be finalized at a later time.

The board also voted to accept a $200 donation from Cargill AgHorizons before moving on to approve facility use and field trip requests. The final act of the night was the approval of personnel including employment and coaching. The board approved the following: Employment
