Submitted by Jeff Cluxton, RULH Board President

The regular meeting of the RULH Board of Education was held on Wednesday, Sept. 16, 2015 at the Ripley Union Lewis Huntington High School with the following members in attendance: Mr. Jeff Cluxton, Mrs. Glenda Huff, Mr. Barry Sims, Mr. Jeff White and Mr. Jeff Wilson. Also present were Dr. Linda Naylor, Superintendent, and Mr. Jeff Rowley, Treasurer, various employees, and members of the public.

Dr. Naylor gave her monthly report after the Pledge of Allegiance. She noted that Mr. Rowley, Mr. Curtis, and she had spent considerable time over the last month finalizing the purchase of 735 Chromebooks for student and teacher use. This purchase will allow all students in grades 3-12 to have a device, and provide three carts of 25 devices each for use in grades K-2. In addition, teachers will have a device like their students in order to provide training and assistance. The Chromebook order had been placed and delivery is expected in the next few weeks.

Also, the staff in-service went well on Sept. 8, with a review of the Ohio Teacher Evaluation System and changes brought about by recent legislation. Various staff members were recognized for their service. The in-service concluded with an Emergency Table-Top Drill for each building to discuss responses to various emergencies. According to new state regulations, additional drills are scheduled with staff and students during the school day. The remainder of the in-service day was used to meet annual online training requirements.

The previous board meeting’s minutes and the current financial report of all financial systems of the school district as presented by Mr. Jeff Rowley, district treasurer, were approved.

The Superintendent’s report and recommendations were as follows.

Under Facilities and Transportation, the board approved an overnight field trip for FCCLA leadership training in Marengo, Ohio.

Several actions were taken in the personnel area. The board accepted the resignation of Tamatha Pfeffer as Prom Committee Sponsor for the 2015-2016 school year and the resignation of Brittani Price as High School secretary. They approved supplemental contracts for the following: Amanda Beetem, Middle School Spelling Bee, Jenny Brown, Drama Director/School Play, Heather Butler, Middle School Academic Team, Tammy Whaley, Middle School Yearbook Advisor, Justin Birchfield, Middle School Student Council, Kristi Rosenbaum, Middle School Science Club, and Justin Cluxton as Assistant Athletic Director.

The board approved revisions and updates to the Classified Substitute list. Janet Dugan was approved as a non-paid volunteer for Middle School and High School Cross Country and Joe Gutzweiller was approved as a non-paid volunteer for High School Girls Soccer. The board approved a Memorandum of Understanding with the RULHEA regarding supplementals and extended days.

Under old business, Mr. Rowley noted that RFQs were being advertised per state requirements for the Energy Project. No bids were received for the shelter house/concession stand and Mr. Rowley was discussing whether to re-bid the project now or wait until spring, with a decision made to re-bid the project now. The titles for the two new buses have been received and delivery scheduled for next week and the Everase installation at the High School is complete.
