At the Fillmore Central School Board meeting on January 22, 2013, new board member Emily Ellis took her oath and was sworn in. Ross Kiehne and Jim Love were also sworn in, as they had been re-elected.

The officers for 2013 will remain the same, with Kiehne the Chairperson, Craig Britton, Vice Chair; Deb Ristau, clerk; and Sue Sikkink, treasurer.

The board salaries will remain the same as last year. The committee assignments were approved, with a few changes. The drivers training fees will also remain the same.

The official newspapers are the Fillmore County Journal, Republic-Leader, and the News Record. First Southeast Bank in Harmony, F&M Community Bank in Preston, First State Bank in Fountain, and the MSDLAF (Minnesota School District Liquid Asset Fund) are the official depositories. The authority to wire transfer funds and purchase certificates of deposit, and the authority to pay bills that have a penalty for a late payment before the school board meeting were approved. The meeting schedule will remain the same at the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. Knutson, Flynn, and Deans will remain the official school district legal counsel, and the posting for official notices will remain at the elementary office, high school office, and district office.
