  • The Brookfield R-3 Board of Education met in regular session on Tuesday night with all Board members present for nearly all of the meeting.  At this meeting, the Board formed a committee to address their Title IX noncompliance, accepted some bids, and re-hired their staff.
    The agenda was amended and approved, there were no public comments, and the consent agenda was approved unanimously as well.  Motions and seconds came from Toni Fay, Marc Amer, and Jeff Vogel on these two votes.
    The Board then held a pair of recognitions.  Brookfield High School Science Olympiad coach Nancy Polley presented the students that had competed at Districts.  Polley noted that three students of the seven present were heading to the upcoming state competition.
    Farron McCollum and Justin Keune from the R-3 Maintenance Department were recognized for the award that had been featured previously in the LCL for the painting and maintenance at Burlington Field.  McCollum related the amount of time the Bell Game paint work had taken.
    Special Services Director Denise Carlson presented the annual Homeless, Migrant and ELL report to the Board.  The District currently has 10 students who qualify under the ELL guidelines.  This means that English is not the only language that is spoken in their home.  The District has 22 students who are considered homeless, which also includes families who have “doubled-up” in another residence.  This number has risen in recent years.  There are no migrant students in the District at this time.
    Under Communications and Petitions, the Board accepted the resignation of Brandy Gladbach, Elementary Art, who has accepted another position in a different District.  This resignation was accepted unanimously after a motion and second from Vogel and Amer, respectively.  The Board also accepted a thank-you card from the High School staff from the recent Enrollment Expo for the Board members’ appearances.
    In the continuing saga of extracurricular activities offered in the District, and the District’s non-compliance with the federal Title IX standards, the Board of Education voted to form a Title IX Compliance Committee.  
    Said committee will consist of:  the Superintendent, High School Principal, Activities Director, and a student of the under-represented gender.  This committee will be formed soon, and a report on its activities will be given on a monthly basis at the regular Board meeting.
