The Centralia SADD Sponsor Lisa Schmitz, along with student Cooper Deters, talked about what the group has been working on during the last semester and said they haven’t has a meeting yet to decide what they will be doing for the second semester. Schmitz talked about working through the Too Good For Drugs Curriculum. The board asked Schmitz and Deters questions about how the board can help them and about how to improve communication between all of the SADD chapters.
The board approved the November and December minutes, with the correction of December minutes to say that 12 interviews had been completed instead of 11.
Stewart delivered the Grant Coordinator report. Supplemental Forms that are to be submitted to the State and the grant checking account were presented to the board. Stewart said the quarterly report that was submitted to the State for the grant is in the Dropbox and was also emailed to the board members. She also updated the board on the deliverables that are due for the grant by Jan. 15, which include the Capacity Building Plan and Logic Model. The Capacity Building Plan will be emailed out to the board members following the meeting for the board to provide feedback on the proposed action steps.
Renyer and Stewart explained to the board that a work group would be needed for next grant deliverables. The work group will be determined at a later time.
Stewart presented bank forms that required the signatures of Nick Scott, Adam Reel, Heather Stewart and Susan Bowman. This will allow the above board members to be able to sign on the grant checking account. Susan Bowman was not present at the meeting and will need to sign the papers at a later date.
Scott gave the treasurer’s report. The board discussed the funds coming from the Nemaha County commissioners. The board agreed that we should request $5,000 for the second and third quarters from the commissioners. Scott questioned when the $3,000 that was given to the grant account from the board account would be replaced. It was decided to wait until later to transfer the amount back into the board account.
