This could be a pilot structure that could spread to other parts of the state ff it works out effectively. They think it's creative and has some real pos- sibilities." Principal Bonnie Thompson reported that she and Mrs. Shumway have completed the Winter Benchmark and IRI Assessments and they will compare the results with the fall data, identifying the at-rlsk kids who need some additional support or change in their instructional program. Thompson said the kids really like the Study Island program that was bought in the fall, and they are really using it, so she hopes to see a payoff in their ISATs and general knowledge. This is an on-line program that is individualized according to how each child performs. There will be a Lifetime Sports Day on March 8. Grades 2 - 6 will go to Brundage Mountain, and the first grade is going to cross-country ski at Ponderosa Park. Cathy Lakey pointed out that the school financial report that details the school's budget for the year to date, as well as monthly expenditures, are available on the school's web site: The board received only one bid for the district's surplus bus. The minimum bid was set at $1,500 and the bid, from the Council VaLley Assembly of God Church, was $1,550. The board approved that bid and the sale of the bus. Sixteen people who attended the February 7 planning presentation have expressed interest in participating in committees to be formed to study the issues facing the schools and form a five-year plan. Dalgleish said he will create an email contact list and propose dates for meetings. "I want to start working immediately on that next week," he said. Mark Mahon proposed adding a fundraising committee, saying, "Obviously the state's not going to fund our education, and as a rural community we need to do it ourselves." He said by applying for grants we may be able to tap into the money that he believes is out there- that we just have building.

Kevin Gray has volunteered to work on doing that, having had over a decade of experience with such matters as a member of the school board. Freedman explained, "He looks, from his experience with the school board, at the policies, what we have in place, and then aligns them and makes recommendations for us." Kevin outlined the six additions or amendments about which he is making recommendations right now. He said there will be another six or so next month. Mr. Dalgleish explained the situation with Coke and Pepsi concerning vending machines in the high school. Each company has made offers that have advantages and disadvantages for the school, and Dalgleish has been pitting them against each other to see which one can offer the school the best deal. "They're making money off of us, we've got to see what we can get back," he said. The board voted to allow him to make the final decision as to which company to go The Adams County Record t 0 m with. Resignations ", Last month the school board received a letter of resignation from Cheryl Clayton who is the p speech and language  pathologist. She will be, resigning at the end of the school year. That position will need to be ; filled for next year. Bonnie Thompson explained that the school has also been trying, unsuccessfully, to find an occupational therapist. Schools are required to make this therapy available to students who need it, and if push comes to shove, the state can force the school to bus those kids to someplace out of the area for therapy. Thompson said they have advertised everywhere for an occupational therapist. She said McCall had been unsuccessful in the same pursuit, going so far as to offer a full time occupational therapist position with benefits, and yet they got no response. The board also received a letter of resignation from thel girls' basketball coach,  Kimberly Zumhofe, whose husband has accepted a job in Arizona. They will be leaving on March 6. to render aid.
