Mabel-Canton struggles to get SAC program off the ground


Mon, Aug 24th, 2015
Posted in Mabel Education

The Mabel-Canton school board met on August 18 at 7 p.m. The board extended a warm welcome back to the students, staff, and families of the Mabel-Canton school district, as they will be starting another school year soon.

The 2015-16 school breakfast and lunch prices were approved. Federal regulation mandated a $0.10 increase in all prices.

The hirings of Russell Larson as the B-Team boys basketball coach, Stena Lieb as a .2 fte Art teacher, and Tanya Kidder as a special ed paraprofessional for the 2015-16 school year were approved. A 3-year contract with food service management company Taher was approved. School business manager Todd Netzke noted that with the increase in breakfast and lunch prices, the district should break even in revenues and expenditures.

A donation in the amount of $800.00 from the Salvation Army for the milk program was accepted with gratitude.

The 50/50 fundraiser raffle for the 2015-16 Junior class was approved. It will run through the fall sports and possibly into the winter and spring sports sessions.

The school business manager, Todd Netzke, updated the board on the 2014-15 fiscal year budget. Revenues are coming in on target, but the school could come up a little short for state aid this year. The budget is currently at 98.1% for the fiscal year.

The district bills and electronic fund transfers were approved after review by the board.

The board watched a short video released by the Minnesota State High School League as a requirement for being a member of the MSHSL. The video emphasized the role of coaches in students’ lives and encouraged coaches to move from being transactional coaches to transformative. 97% of school athletes do not play organized sports after graduating from high school and so there needs to be less of an emphasis on performance and winning and more on mentoring and “team family” to give kids life skills and experiences. The MSHSL is urging coaches, athletes, and families to look beyond the trophy. The board found the video to be informative and interesting and are planning to have all students and staff members watch it at some point.
