North Branch School Board notes...

North Branch Area Public Schools offered a Distance Learning Academy or DLA during the coronavirus pandemic, that apparently is now enticing outside enrollment.  Superintendent Sara Paul told the school board in a regular meeting last week (member Sara Grovender participating remotely,) that the district came out of covid better in some aspects,  and staff are monitoring growing inquiries about opportunity to participate in distance programming.  

District staff are also reviewing the federal covid relief monies being distributed and Supt. Paul said funds will be applied with the understanding that spending of one time funding comes with tails.  

The School Board also heard a summary of highlights from the “safe learning plan” the district leaned on during the pandemic.  
District core values and the strategic plan were also gone over by the Board, and wording finessed.

Board member Heather Osagiede applauded the openness and willingness of administrators to embrace requests and address the public’s needs in covid-time,  and  discard what wasn’t working.  She stated,  “I can clearly sense the work is being done,” and the effort to bring in what were previously unheard voices is being noticed.

In other matters, the Board holds a special election November 2 for a seat that was appointed and expires January 2023.  

Anyone who wants to file for putting their name on the ballot can get an affidavit at 38705 Grand Avenue in the Ed Center and file for $2.  Filing closes August 10.

In reviewing district policies the substitute teacher pay has been set at $145 per day and $72.50 for a half day.  

Finance and Human Resources Director Todd Tetzlaff said there’s also a monetary incentive for subs who are repeat instructors (over 50 days in an immediately preceeding school year.)   The district values its subs, Tetzlaff added.
North Branch will now be at, or near, the top of wage schedules for substitutes.
