Mabel-Canton prepares to open SAC program


Mon, Jul 27th, 2015
Posted in Canton Education

The Mabel Canton School Board congratulated Cody Ward for competing in the National High School Finals Rodeo in Rock Springs, Wyo. at their regular meeting on July 21, 2015.

The second reading of the MSBA Policy 4427, which affects the workload limits for certain special education teachers, was reviewed and approved. The coaches and advisors for the 2015-16 school year were also approved.

The school business manager, Todd Netzke, updated the board on the 2015-16 budget. He stated that the budget looks good and it appears that the school will come in under budget in the coming year.

There was no interim administrator report from Michelle Weidemann, as she was absent from the meeting.

Superintendent Jennifer Backer reported that all the MDE reports have been completed, thanks to the office staff.

Enrollment numbers for the 2015-16 school year are holding steady.

The 2015-16 student handbook was reviewed. The school will be stopping the snack cart service, but will continue to offer milk break. The student dress code will be reviewed with the staff and enforced in the coming year. The finalized handbook was approved.

It was noted that the school only receives funds for approved applications for the free and reduced breakfast and lunch program.

The board discussed the final reading of the SAC handbook. Board member Jane Hall asked that the billing procedures be clarified. Crystal Adkins suggested switching from monthly bills to bi-weekly which would be more budget friendly for the families registered in the program. It was also decided that bills will be sent on the 15th and 30th of each month, and a late fee of $10 will be assessed if payment is not .....
