By Hannah Wingert

The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on June 18, 2013 at 7pm. All members were present except for Principal Jeff Nolte and Troy Soiney.

The board approved a motion to renew Jeremy Braun’s Speech and Language contract for the 2013-2014 school year. A resignation from Erica Lind was accepted.

The hiring committee recently met with Principal Nolte to work out a one year contract for the 2013-2014 school year. He will receive a 2.5 percent increase in salary, and an annuity amount increase by $10. The committee plans to negotiate a two year contract soon after the school year starts.

Bonnie Wenthold had previously retired, but will be returning to work at the Mabel-Canton schools with part-time hours in a .6 FTE English Teacher Contract. The board approved her return.

The board approved a change to the language of the Superintendent Contract concerning health insurance.

It was voted to approve online/signature access for the Bank of the West and MSDLAF for Jennifer Backer and Todd Metzke.

The 2013-2014 preliminary budget was approved. The Health and Safety Budget/Policy was also approved.

The Minnesota Board of Education or MBE has said that the school needs to either charge $2.52 for a school lunch or increase the current prices by $0.10. The board approved a motion to increase the cost for school lunches by $0.10 which will bring breakfast prices to $1.30, elementary lunch prices to $2.05, high school lunch prices to $2.15, and adult lunch prices to $3.80. The milk and snack cart prices will remain the same.

In Principal Nolte’s absence, Superintendent Michael Moriarty read a letter addressed to the board by Nolte with comments for the board to consider for the next meeting.

The school has had a closed lunch policy for approximately 12 years. Nolte suggested having an open lunch for high school seniors one Friday a month. He also recommended reviewing the current cell phone policy, which does not allow students to use cell phones during school hours at all, and possibly revising it to allow students’ cell phone use during the lunch hour.

Nolte commented that the entire 2012-2013 senior class had graduated in May, many with honors. He thanked the 2013 class for their leadership.

A new Social Studies curriculum will be ordered soon for the K-5, seventh, eighth, .....
