To be in compliance with the U-S-D-A's National School Lunch Program, the board raised lunch prices by a dime.

For the 2014-15 year, the lunch price for a high school / middle school student will be two dollars and five cents. For a Rissler elementary student, the cost will be one dollar
and 80 cents. The adult lunch price will be two dollars 45 cents. The cost stays the
same for breakfast ($1.10 students $1.50 adults) and reduced price (40-cents) meals.

Trenton R-9 summer school finished with an enrollment of 208 students. The average daily attendance was 87 percent. Administrator Elisha Gass noted both figures are up a little bit when compared to last year. She also reviewed reading assessments, including gains, made by summer school students. Principal Dustin Jenkerson reported 19 middle school students were enrolled in “credit recovery” classes this summer.

The board approved a motion for Trenton R-9 to be in compliance with criteria of the federal Affordable Health Care Act. The action affects substitute teachers and non-certified staff who would be considered “full time” if they average 30 hours a week.

For those who qualify, Trenton R-9 would offer employee health insurance through the current provider, Blue Cross Blue Shield. Trenton will be tracking hours of substitute workers when the new school year begins.

The annual tax rate hearing was scheduled for 5:30 the evening of August 12th with the regular monthly meeting to follow.

Details are expected at next months' R-9 meeting on developing a food science lab for vocational agriculture students. It's to be in the old industrial arts building.

Kris Ockenfels discussed summer maintenance projects. Among them: a new parking lot has been completed at Rissler School except for the striping; a welder is sought to do some strengthening work at C-F Russell stadium before the press box canbe updated or remodeled; and Ockenfels feels Johnson ball field will be ready for the softball season. Ockenfels told the board that the fiber optic project is on schedule to connect all school buildings possibly as soon as classes begin. And he noted student I-pads are to arrive in about two weeks for distribution next month.

Superintendent Becky Albrecht reviewed activities and training for teachers and staff in advance of classes at Trenton beginning August 20th. This includes required training on parts of four days. Among them are sessions August 18th for “active shooter response” that's to be conducted by the Trenton Police Department. Sessions also are held regarding harassment, bullying, and confidentiality. Another involves C-P-R training (conducted by Instructor Chris Parks) Other activities include new teacher orientation, freshman orientation, Rissler school open house, as well as distribution of the I-pad devices to parents of seventh and eighth graders. Mrs. Albrecht stated Trentonwill host the football jamboree August 15th and the softball jamboree August 16th.

An executive session was held for personnel.
