No action was taken as the board scheduled a special meeting for 12 noon on June 25th to adopt a new budget and to financially close out the current fiscal year.

Superintendent Becky Albrecht indicated deliberate decisions made during the year on one-time purchases will cause two funds: technology and debt service to be in the red. However, both the operating and the teachers fund will be in the black.

Overall, Mrs. Albrecht said Trenton R-9 should maintain a reserve fund of about34 percent, continuing a trend of 30 to 35 percent each of the past eight years.

Mrs. Albrecht, using information from the department of elementary and secondary education, projected state revenue at 95 percent of the foundation formula however, state funding Trenton receives will be less due to declining enrollment.

More details are to be available when the board acts on the new budget in two weeks.

The board last night accepted a letter of retirement from Spanish instructor Denise Bruner, concluding 31 years in the Trenton school district. It also was reported Dave Johnson has declined a letter of intent to be re-employed as part time social worker.

Trenton school employees will take part, prior to the start of school, in an active shooter / intruder simulation. A Trenton police officer will provide the instruction after attending specialized training. Mrs. Albrecht said Trenton will pay the registration for the officer who, in turn, provides R-9 and others instructions in how to respond.


In other news briefs: the R-9 board approved more than 26 thousand dollars ($26,273) for high school math textbooks from Houghton-Mifflin.

Bids were accepted from Central Dairy doing business as Prairie Farms and
from M-F-A Oil for diesel fuel. Both are the current suppliers for Trenton R-9.

Approval was given to the I-pad handbooks as well as several policy updates as recommended by the Missouri school boards association. Mrs. Albrecht reported the
government e-rate has been approved to help Trenton with the costs of additional
technology and fiber optics. She also gave a progress report on efforts by WanRac

for constructing a fiber optics network connecting the Trenton school buildings.

Erik Coffey reviewed the A-plus program noting 46 graduates this year have completed the requirements. That increases the Trenton total to 705 since 1998. He noted A-plus enrollment has remained strong and consistent the past six years.

Coffey stated a change in the A-plus requirements is that the seniors of 2015 must earn a rating of advanced or proficient on their Algebra One end-of-course exam. Another option he said is for students to achieve proficient or advanced on a higher level math end-of-course exam.

Wes Croy presented an evaluation of the activities program for the Trenton middle and high schools.
