STURGIS, S.D. – The Meade 46-1 School Board meets tonight for their regular November meeting.
The board will get a report on Whitewood Elementary, who received an overall score of 91 out of 100 on its school report card through the South Dakota Department of Education. This is the highest score for a West River elementary school and was the third highest score in the state.
The board will also recognize the Sturgis Brown High School Boys Cross Country Team, who brought home a second place finish from the state cross country meet.
The board will also hear from Business Manager, Brett Burditt, who will present the 5-year capital outlay and facilities plan for FY25.
Also tonight, Sturgis Brown High School Principal Pete Wilson will update the board on the previous meetings held to gather input on a proposed trimester plan at the high school.
The board will also revisit the early resignation agreement that was brought to the Board for review at the October board meeting.
The purpose is to receive resignations early for the district to plan staffing needs and recruitment of high quality staff or manage any staffing or program changes needed for the 2024-25 school year in January and February.
If it is successful in planning and recruitment of teachers, the board will review to see if this would be beneficial in other employment areas.
The Meade 46-1 School Board meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. and will take place in the Board Room at the Williams Administration Building.
