September 30, 2019 Board Workshop Minutes


Board Workshop          

CAM Board of Education

Monday, September 30, 2019


The CAM Community School District Board of Education held a board workshop on September, 30, 2019 in the superintendent’s office at the CAM High School in Anita. Present were Directors Gary Dinkla, Chuck Kinzie, and Todd McKee, Superintendent Paul Croghan, and Secretary Lindsay Jahde. Directors Julie Williamson and Nick Kauffman were absent.  Visitors were Jennifer Nichols, Larry Hunt, Barry Bower, Tami Williamson, Mike Plagman, Mark Pfister, and Daric O’Neal.  President Gary Dinkla read the mission statement, welcomed the visitors and called the meeting to order at 7:00 p.m. 


INITIAL FINDINGS OF THE FACILITY STUDY:  Mark Pfister with Boyd Jones and Daric O’Neal with Alley Poyner Macchietto presented on the findings of the study, using a 1-10 scaled system scoring each building in the district.  Many of the same deficiencies were identified in each of the buildings and include deferred maintenance issues, egress lighting and security concerns.  It is the district’s intentions to take a proactive approach in the operation and maintenance of the facilities and the study includes a 3 step process identifying “Where we are now?”,  Where do we want to be?” and “How do we get there?” Mr. O’Neal explained we are in the “Where are we now”, or discovery process right now.  The facility study is a way to assess the current deficiencies and needs.  Tools used in the assessment included 3D Scanning, 360 Capture, existing drawings as well as evaluations completed by the engineers. 


The next step is to evaluate the deficiencies, educate the community and create options with priorities determined by focus groups and input from the community.  Sources and uses of funding will be identified and discussed.  A Master Plan with implementation concepts will be developed.  Phase 1 is identified as 0-12 months, phase 2 is 1 to 4 years out and step 3 is 5+ years.   A meeting will be scheduled with an initial focus group made up of faculty for the week of October 7th through the 18th


ADJOURNMENT:   Meeting adjourned at 8:08p.m. on a motion received from Todd McKee, seconded by Chuck Kinzie and carried on a 3-0 voice vote. 


These minutes are as recorded by the board secretary and subject to approval at the next regular board meeting.   The action items carried and the full text of the motions, policies and discussion are on file in the board secretary's office or on the district website www.CAMCougars.org
