In attendance:Â Janice FlaniganÂ – Joan ThompsonÂ – Wendy TimothyÂ – Daniel BartholomaÂ – Cassandra BowersÂ – Wendee WeightÂ – Chris Scott
– Daniel All my kids are in school.
– Cassie All my kids are in school.
– Joan I love that school is beyond the first couple of weeks and we are finally getting into a routine. It has been a pleasure working with this council this last year.
– Chris Really excited about the Kearns-Cyprus town hall meeting he attended the night before at Kearns High School. The district was very forthcoming.
– Wendee I am really excited for my kidsâ€™ teachers this year.
– Janice Just celebrated her 43rd wedding anniversary. We are up 1Â˝ teachers. That goes in this Friday. However, there is a teacher shortage.
– Wendy School started off really well.
Election process changes and their reasons, including current election terms
Daniel apologized for the mistakes made in our election process. Janice and Daniel were given incorrect information. They were told that the elections must be within the first 3 weeks of the year and candidates had to declare at the end of last year. The rules should have been that candidates could declare at the first of this school year.
With one candidate having moved, we now have 4 parent candidates and 4 open parent positions, so we don’t need to have elections.
One of the seats needs to be for a one year so that we will have 2 open seats next year to maintain turnover balance.
Report from Principle and Council Chair on status of the Music program
The county will contract with Riverton Music for the after-school music program for up to 17 students. If enrollment is more than 17, the cost will be divided amongst all students.
At the music assembly it was announced that it would cost $120, but since the county is involved, families will not have to pay the full cost.
Notes will go home with information about band noting that there will be little or no cost.

There is a Cyprus Network boundary open house on October 1st.
