The North Bend Central Board of Education approved the 2019 - 2020 capacity resolution at the monthly meeting held Dec. 12.

Looking at the enrollment as of Dec. 5, kindergarten, grades two, six and seven will be the only classes open for option enrollment for the 2019-2020 school year. The remaining classes have peaked at their capacity level which is 40 for grades K - 5, 50 for grades 6 and 7, and 40 for grades 8 -11.

It was reported that the new greenhouse is ready for use, pending the approval of the fire marshall, which came with a $12,200 price tag. The contractor had submitted a bid without the fire safety requirements in it as they would not know that until an inspection was done. Superintendent Dan Endorf said he has requested item accounting of the fire safety bid and will see if there are ways cost can be cut down while still remaining in code. The board approved Endorf spending up to $12,200 to get the work done so that class use of the greenhouse may start next semester.

Endorf shared with the board a tool he found to combat bullying in the school. He is going to ask teachers to share anti-bullying teaching and learning opportunities they have in their classrooms. This will be posted on the NBC website so parents will know what is being done to prevent bullying problems.

The board spent some time discussing opening up the weight room to students during community use times. Some suggestions were made and strength and conditioning coach will be brought into the conversation before any changes are made.

In other business the board:
• approved midterm graduation for Grace Brodd
• heard Jennifer Karnatz discuss bringing techniques to the middle school to help main stream SPED students.

The next meeting will be Jan. 14, 2019, at 7 p.m.
