Mabel-Canton band trip is a success


Fri, Jun 20th, 2014
Posted in Canton Education

The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on June 17, 2014 at 7 p.m. All members were present as well as Todd Lechtenberg, Mabel-Canton school district’s business manager.

The minutes from the May 20, 2014 board meeting were reviewed and approved.

The school board wished to thanks the students and staff of Mabel-Canton schools for another great school year.

Band teacher, Katie Larson, was present at the meeting to update the board on the recent band trip. She said that the trip went very well, and she was impressed at how well-behaved and respectful the kids were. The band members enjoyed visiting Graceland, the Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame, and more. They performed for Dr. Sagen of Vanderbilt College who was able to give the group some positive critiques and feedback. Larson is hoping that, with fundraising efforts, the 7-12th grade bands will be able to take another band trip in about three years.

The board reviewed the second reading of the Pupil Transportation To/From Childcare Locations resolution. Board member Jane Hall asked if the bus company had presented the school with written proof that they were unable to pick up/drop off children in Hesper, Iowa as it’s across the state border. After discussion, it was decided to table the resolution until the July board meeting to give Superintendent Jennifer Backer time to obtain more information and details from the bus company concerning crossing the state line.

Todd Lechtenberg, Mabel-Canton’s business manager, reviewed the 2013-14 and 2014-15 budgets with the board. At this point, his only concern with the 2014-15 budget is the special ed revenue. So far, he has been unable to obtain numbers from HVED, but is continuing to work towards that goal.

Last year, the school district showed a deficit of $285,000. This year, the deficit will go down to $140,000 which is a good improvement. The school staff were all asked for ideas on where to make cuts in the budget and came up with cuts and freezes equaling about $100,000 which the new budget does not include yet. The 2014-15 budget was approved by the board.

The payment of the district bills and electronic fund transfers were approved.

The student representatives, Jon Selness and Sara Vettleson-Trutza, have the summer off and so were not present at the meeting to give a report to the board.
