Chair Tim Sather opened the special meeting, called it to order at approximately 6:00 p.m. and led those present in the Pledge of Allegiance.

The following trustees and officers were present: Trustees Susanne Vinton, Tim Sather, and Jason Hamrick, Superintendent Eileen Johnson and District Clerk Laurie Noonkester. These trustees serve as the Board Negotiating Committee.

Mr. Sather advised the following:

Any person present who wishes to address the board or raise any question about public school district matters or governing policies may do so under public participation. No discussion of personnel or individual students is permitted at this time. A limit of three minutes is placed on each speaker. Persons who want more time may make arrangements to be placed on a future agenda. The public is also reminded that they may provide input on all motions being considered by the board at this meeting.

The negotiating team for the Lockwood Education Association of MEA/MFT was present. Members of the team are Cindy Gopp, Stephanie Smith-Miller, Sharon Harris, Lynette Larson and Barbara Frank.

Teachers present were Susan Andersen, Linda Engdahl, Amy Muir, Teresa Marchant, Gretta Henrickson, Barb Asleson, Mary Kay Rottrup, Nikki Alt, Hank Yasenak and Denise Wulff.

The LEA Negotiating Team and the Board committee discussed the prioritization of items that were returned from a survey the LEA conducted by polling their members.

The LEA team has requested that a current budget report, last fiscal year budget report, proposed budget for 2012-13 and insurance premiums for 2012-13 be made available.

Due to health insurance premiums not being released until sometime in mid April the next meeting to continue negotiations was set for April 26, 2012 at 6:00 p.m.

The meeting adjourned at 7:50 p.m.
