Houston Public Schools held a school board meeting on Tuesday, September 17. At the meeting, Krin Abraham presented the Annual Report on Curriculum, Instruction, and Student Achievement for the 2012-2013 school year. The Annual Report is required by the Minnesota Department of Education and must be approved prior to October 1. There will also be a public meeting held to present the final report. A date has not yet been set for the meeting.

Justin Treptow and Cody Mathers also presented an update on the Minnesota Virtual Academy 2013-2014 school year launch. They compared the number of major incidents and site downtime with the 2012-2013 school year. The 2012-2013 school year had five major incidents, resulting in 693 minutes of downtime; whereas this school year has had no major incidents and zero minutes of downtime. Treptow and Mathers were very pleased to report such a successful launch and hope to have as few incidents as possible this school year.

At the meeting Interim Superintendent Bartleson turned in his resignation. Bartleson has decided to spend more time caring for his wife, who has stage 4 cancer. The board accepted his resignation. Bartleson’s last day will be October 31, with hopes that a new superintendent will be able to start on November 1. This gives the board six weeks to discuss the position (full-time or part-time), advertise, utilize a screening committee, go through the interview process, hold final interviews, select a candidate, and negotiate their contract. It will certainly be a busy month and a half for the Houston School Board.

The next school board meeting will be held on October 1, 2013 at the Houston High School library at 5:30 p.m.
