FY FINANCIAL UPDATE: Spargur reported fiscal year to date figures as of March 31, 2015: year to date revenue of $10,088.98; expenditures of $25,148.11 and cash balance of $57,740.72.


SDCL 13-42-9 Discussion: The Board reviewed the information provided by ASHA; it is not appropriate for a licensing board to deal with individual school district contract negotiations, universal licensure law was enacted to allow individuals to practice with a license in any setting without additional credential requirements, requiring a school certificate would potentially add additional requirements for practice and negate the universal provisions. The consensus of the Board is to leave the language as it exists and not to pursue adopting language from SDCL 13- 42-9.

COMPLAINTS/INVESTIGATIONS: There were no complaints/investigations.

Motion carried by roll call vote; Schmidt, yes; Heinemeyer, yes; Hauge, yes; Gohn, yes; Tucker, yes. Meeting adjourned at 8:53 AM MT.
