BEMENT COMMUNITY UNIT SCHOOL DISTRICT 5

REGULAR MEETING OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION

NOVEMBER 11, 2020

The regular meeting of the Bement Community Unit School District 5 Board of Education was held Wednesday, November 11, 2020 in the small gym. The meeting was called to order by board president Todd Scott at 7:00 p.m.

Board members present were Kyle Rogers, Janice Fogerson, Todd Scott, Denise Strack, Trixie Stoerger-Flavin, Layna Somers, and Jeff Funk.

Mr. Kepley gave his middle school/high school principal’s report on middle school students of the quarter and high school students of the month, Veterans Day activities, extracurricular clubs and the annual Mike Walsh Tournament.

Mr. Cline gave his assistant principal/athletic director’s report on middle school and high school sports. Mr. Cline told the board that the IESA still has middle school boys’ basketball and middle school volleyball scheduled to start practice in January. The IHSA has stated that winter sports can begin practicing November 16 with Tier I mitigations. The board would need to decide if they wanted athletes to start practice or to wait. Starting practices on November 16 goes against the recommendations of the Illinois Department of Public Health, Illinois State Board of Education and Governor Pritzker. Dr. Greenwood told the board that if practices start at this time going against recommendations school districts would be liable if sued. Board consensus was that Bement not start practices at this time and will follow the Illinois Department of Public Health guidelines. Mr. Cline will inform Cerro Gordo of Bement’s decision. Mr. Cline also discussed the Student Interest Survey results and the sports cooperative proposal.
