Information & Discussion Items
Sapulpa FFA Chapter - National 3 Star Gold Emblem Chapter
Discussion:  Mr. Kevin Burr, Superintendent, presented Brandon Kahle and Kurt Rose, FFA Teachers, with the Superintendent Outstanding Achievement Award for the achievement of earning the National 3 Star Gold Emblem Chapter. This is the highest award given to any FFA chapter on the national level and less than 10% of the FFA Chapters nationally receive this award every year. The students had put forth a lot of hard work and effort this past year in order to meet the national requirements. The award application consists of 15 activities that the chapter schedules and completes throughout the year. The application includes three areas of focus: Student Development, Chapter Development, and Community Development. During the National FFA Convention October 24-27 in Indianapolis, IN, the students will be recognized for their accomplishment.
Environmental Excellence Award
Discussion:  Mr. Marcus Laughlin, Regional Vice President of Marketing, presented Sapulpa Schools with an Environmental Excellence Award and certificate of savings. The Environmental Excellence Award is an environmentally-focused award to recognize the impact the organization’s energy program is having on the natural resources. It specifically focuses on the environmental equivalent of the reduction in energy consumption attained by the program and the program’s financial savings, recognizing the support and cooperation of administration. The district achieved a 20% cost savings totaling $355,392 in 29 months since forming a strategic alliance with Energy Education. The administration and all staff members are to be commended for their commitment to being good stewards of the organization’s energy dollars and the environment. Mr. Danny Housley and Mr. Max Caldwell, Sapulpa Schools Energy Education Representatives, were presented the award and commended on their work with the district.
Obesity Trends and State/County Health Report Card
Discussion:  Ms. Nancy Sitler, Child Nutrition Director, presented the Board a power point showing obesity trends in our country. The Oklahoma Department of Health did a study on the BMI trends in our country. The country has increased in size has the years have passed. Heart disease is the leading cause of death among Oklahomans, cancer is second and stroke is ranked third. All three are influenced by diet and weight. Only 14.6% of Oklahomans consume the recommended 5 fruits and vegetables a day compared to 23.4% nationally. 31.4 % have no physical activity in Oklahoma and 32% are considered obese. In 2007-08 the Department of Health reported 47.9% of first graders spend 2-3 hours in front of a screen each day. Jill Parker with Alliance for a Healthier Generation presented the Board with studies and goals that their program offers to school districts to help students make healthier choices. This program was involved in reducing high calorie beverages in our schools by 85%. They collaborated and have agreements with the beverage companies to reduce high calorie beverages to school districts. Healthy schools framework includes policies, health education, physical education and school meals with competitive food choices. This information is free to all schools to help make a difference, one step at a time. Ms. Parker will be visiting with all of our principles next week to see who is interested in utilizing this free service.
District Accreditation Status
Discussion:  Mr. Tom Trigalet, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, presented the Board with the 2012-13 District Accreditation Report . There are accreditation with warning on the Middles School, Junior High and High School. The High School made the list due to an activity bus driver not having proper certificates. This problem has been resolved and should not be a problem in the future. No deficiencies were reported on the elementary sites.
Enrollment Report
Discussion:  Mr. Tom Trigalet, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, presented the district enrollment totals. The district has a total of 4,072 students which is down 25 students district-wide from last year. Mr. Burr, Superintendent, will be surveying the district’s transfer students. He believes it is important to know why student’s transfer to Sapulpa and why they choose to leave Sapulpa Schools. Mr. Burr will report back to the board with the survey results.
Superintendent Comments
Discussion:  Mr. Burr asked Dr. Richard Rosenberger and Gear Up Logic Team to present the results of the walk through a couple of weeks ago. The Gear Up team is in Oklahoma City presenting results to another district. Gear Up commended the district for the efforts shown during the procedure. Dr. Rosenberger was pleased with the overall scores but there are still areas in need for improvement. High School and Junior High had many good ratings but Middle School scored low on their building structure. The Board and the district will need to make decisions on how to resolve some of the low scoring areas.
