In other action during the January meeting, the Havre School Board:
Authorized Havre High Activities Director Charlie Klimas to vote for the district on 27 proposals before the Montana High Schools Association during their annual meeting in Billings on Jan. 15. Chairman Jim Heberly asked Klimas about some proposals to delay or reverse the MHSA decision to abide by the findings of the Human Rights Commission to reverse the girls' basketball and volleyball seasons. Klimas said some smaller schools are making the proposals in opposition to the court ordered switch.
"I don't see how the association can do anything about a court order," he said; "it's a court order."
Reviewed a letter from the Northwest Association of Schools and Colleges about Havre High School receiving Exemplary Approved accreditation, one of only 11 Montana schools to receive this rating. Schools receiving exemplary status meet and exceed NASC standards and continually strive for improvement through new and innovative programs, the letter stated.
Received the district's audit report from Kim Downing, principle auditor for Denning, Downey & Assoc., which she said was a clean audit with no adverse findings.
Approved a 3 percent salary increase for the second year of Miller's superintendent contract, from $72,813 to $74,998.
Received a report from Dennis Parman, Jackie Rygg and Andy Carlson on the progress through the Goals 2000 grant, including information on assessing and improving technology use in the schools and in implementing student and curriculum assessment programs.
