School Board Briefs

At the March 14 meeting of the New Prague Area School bord.

• The board received information on the Scott County Association for Leadership and Efficiency, a group of government bodies that meets monthly and works to find ways to cooperate. The group is made up of different cities, townships and school districts in the county, along with the Shakopee Mdewakanton Sioux Community. Poplau asked the board to consider signing an equipment lease agreement. The board will consider the proposal at the March 29 meeting.

• The board approved the consent agenda, which included hiring of Rod Zivkovich as Director of Finance. Zivkovich held a similar position for Eden Prairie Schools. Also on the consent agenda was the retirement of Sue Stoddard, a second grade teacher, after 27 years of service.

• The board discussed the proposed school district calendar for 2005-06 and 2006-07, with board members making suggestions for changes. The calendar will be reworked and presented at the next meeting.

• Board members were updated on the 2005-06 budget process. Poplau said there were several areas that were being looked at for change, and that a full budget would be presented at the next meeting.

• A discussion took place on reinstating the cooperative sponsorship agreement with Montgomery-Lonsdale for boys hockey. The Minnesota State High School League has issued numbers for different classes in various sports, and a combined New Prague/Montgomery-Lonsdale team would still be in Class A, just short of the cutoff. The district has received letters from both the High School League and the Montgomery-Lonsdale district to reinstate the agreement for the next two years.

• Board members tabled discussion on their compensation until the next meeting, since only four of the seven members were in attendance.
