A public hearing for the 2015-2016 Clayton Ridge School District certified budget was held on Thursday, April 9, just two days after the school's bond referendum was rejected by voters.  Board members present were John Heying, Mike Finnegan, Christine Aulwes, Janice Andregg, Jason Reimer, and Jeff  Hoffmann. Kathy Ihde was absent.  Also in attendance were Allan Nelson, Kris Einck, Shane Wahls, Steve Hoff, David Schlueter and Mary Seifert.

Superintendent Nelson presented the proposed 2015-2016 school calendar with a start date of Monday, Aug. 24.

Receiving no comments from the public, the hearings ended at 7:27 p.m. and the regular meeting was called to order.

During the meeting, the board voted to approve the proposed budget as presented, as well as the

proposed school calendar as presented. 

The resignation of teacher associate Hilary Wahls effective at the end of the 2014-2015 school year was accepted, and the board also approved the ratification of the CREA Teacher Contract with a total package increase of 3.25%. Distribution of contracts was authorized.  

A motion by Hoffmann and seconded by Finnegan to approve the application for renewal of the Iowa High School Athletic Association Cooperative Sponsorship with Central for the 2015 summer baseball program carried unanimously.

The board granted Superintendent Nelson’s request to prepare a letter of agreement allowing him to complete his doctoral research on the self-reported school experiences of virtual school students in grades seven and eight.
