Roll Call: All members voted “Yes.”

Dr. Vollmer reviewed the results of

the calendar committee’s surveys

from parents, staff & students and

he presented a draft of the

committee’s recommended two-year

calendar. Moved by Gessner,

seconded by Mihalick, to approve

the 2021-2022 and 2022-2023

School Calendars as presented by

Superintendent Vollmer

Roll Call: All members voted “Yes.”

Superintendent Vollmer recom-

mended that the Board contemplate

the performance nonrenewal of

teacher Angela Peterson’s contract.

Ms. Peterson is considered a

“probationary teacher” under North

Dakota Century Code statute

15.1-15-02. Being a probationary

teacher means she has taught in the

District for less than 2 years. The

contract nonrenewal process for pro-

bationary teachers is different than it

is for teachers who have taught with

MPSD#1 two plus years.

The reasons for Dr. Vollmer’s

recommendation to contemplate her

nonrenewal are due to her:

1. Inability to seek out, accept, and

implement constructive feedback

and help from supervisors and

coaches/mentors.

2. Inability to create detailed lesson

plans that address all needed com-

ponents in all subject areas, for ef-

fective learning to occur.

3. Inability to adequately engage all

students for effective learning to oc-

cur.

4. Inability to consistently use multi-

ple data sources to form skills-based

small groups and differentiate in-

struction based on individual

skills/levels of students in groups

which adversely impacts effective

learning.

The board must not discuss the sub-

stance behind those stated reasons

at this time. At this meeting, the

Board only determines whether it will

contemplate her nonrenewal, and if

the Board so moves, the probation-

ary teacher statute requires that the

Board then: 1) review the teacher’s

evaluations and 2) schedule a spe-

cial meeting to hold an executive

session meeting with Ms. Peterson

to discuss the reasons for the con-

templated nonrenewal. It would be

during that executive session meet-

ing that the Board would have the

opportunity to ask questions. The

difference between the process just

explained and the nonrenewal pro-

cess for teachers who have been

here 2+ years is that Ms. Peterson

does not receive a hearing before

the Board; instead, just the execu-

tive session meeting with her occurs

to discuss with her the reasons for

the contemplated nonrenewal. Dr.

Vollmer suggested this meeting be

held on Tuesday, April 20, 2021 at

4:00 in Curriculum Conference

Room at the MPS Administrative

Building.

Moved by Gessner, seconded by

Mihalick, that a special meeting of

the Board and executive session be

held at the Minot Public School Dis-

trict Office on April 20, 2021 at 4:00

p.m., at which time the Board will

meet with Angela Peterson to dis-

cuss the reasons for the contem-

plated nonrenewal of Angela Peter-

son from her current contract for the

reasons set forth by Dr. Vollmer, and

that the Business Manager send the

teacher a letter to that effect, includ-

ing the specified reasons, in a timely

manner prior to the Board meeting.

Roll Call: All members voted “Yes.”

As required by the probationary

teacher statute, the board was

presented with copies of Ms.

Peterson’s evaluations so that they

have time to review them before the

executive session. The board was

directed not to discuss the docu-

ments with each other, with any ad-

ministrators, or anyone else prior to

that executive session.

Moved by Mihalick, seconded by

Gessner, to approve a letter of resig-

nation from Sherry Carlson effective

the end of the 2020-2021 school

year.

Roll Call: All members voted “Yes.”

The next regularly scheduled school

board meeting is set for May 6, 2021

at 4:00 p.m.
