Holy Angels School Committee – June 15, 2011

1. Call to Order / Prayer:

Present- Greg Rinn, Greg Zimmer, Tony Spaeth, Nancy Monday, Kyle Zautner, Beth Holbrook, David Tennies, Kelly Walla, Steve Stanek (PCL), Julie Schmidt, Brian Galszcz, Mike Sternig.

2. Approval of Minutes:

Motion passed 7-0 on a motion by Nancy Monday (Tony Spaeth 2nd)

3. Old Business:

Policy Revisions:

All of the policy changes received a consensus approval as written except for the policy that would open a 2nd classroom of a grade, where the “40” number was discussed.

After a lengthy debate regarding the increase in adding a 2nd class in a grade from 34 students to 40 students several motions were made. David Tennies motioned to keep the number at 34 students but the motion did not garner a second. Beth Holbrook motioned to accept the number at 40 (Greg Rinn 2nd) and the motion passed without consensus 6-2 with Greg Zimmer and David Tennies dissenting. As consensus is the norm for the HASC, a further motion was made by Greg Rinn to change the number to 38 (David Tennies 2nd). The motion to add the second class in a grade at 38 students passed with consensus 8-0.

Enrollment Update:

K3 – 15
K4 – 27
K5 – 25
Gr1 – 40
Gr2 – 36
Gr3 – 25
Gr4 – 32
Gr5 – 32
Gr6 – 37
Gr7 – 38
Gr8 – 34
Total: 341

Enrollment waiver request: A request for enrollment waiver in the K5 grade was discussed after being tabled in May. As one student left HAS, one of the three on the waiting list got in. The other two did not meet the criteria of the policy set by previous school committees. Nobody supported creating a new policy so the two students will remain on the waiting list for K5.

4. New Business:

Seating of new members:

Julie Schmidt and Kelly Walla and were welcomed as new members of the HASC while David Tennies and Tony Spaeth were re-seated for their second terms after being re-elected. Greg Rinn offered his resignation and Brian Glaszcz was seated to complete the final year of Greg’s term. The terms of Nancy Monday (completing Sarah Reisberg’s term) and Greg Zimmer expired.
