Mabel-Canton Schools face budget cuts


Fri, Jul 18th, 2014
Posted in Canton Education

The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on July 15, 2014 at 7 p.m. Principal Jeff Nolte was not present nor were board members Cristal Adkins, Jane Hall, or Troy Soiney.

The minutes from the June 17, 2014 board meeting were reviewed and approved.

The board wished to thank the custodial staff for the extra efforts and hard work provided this summer to keep Mabel-Canton School District beautiful. The custodial staff has been busy getting the school building ready for the 2014-15 school year.

The consent agenda was approved. It included approval of the membership of the school district into the Minnesota School Board’s Association, the Minnesota Rural Education Association, and the Southeast Service Coop. All three associations have great resources for the school district and have proved helpful to the district so far.

Also included on the consent agenda were the approval of Superintendent Backer as ISD 239 Title IX and Human Rights Coordinator and the resignation of choir teacher, Heidi Myhre pending a suitable replacement. Superintendent Backer has been in contact with the superintendent of the Lanesboro School District to see if an agreement can be reached for the two districts to share a choir teacher as both are looking for replacements at this time. She’ll have more information at a later time.

The board approved the Mabel Record as the official school district newspaper. They also approved Mabel-Canton to file for School Board elections. Jeff Ryan, Cristal Adkins, Chris Loppnow, and Troy Soiney’s terms as school board members are up.

The fall and winter coaches and advisors for the 2014-15 school year were approved as was the Health and Safety Policy and the grounds/mowing contract.

Todd Lechtenberg, Mabel-Canton’s business manager, wasn’t able to attend the meeting, but did send a note that the audit will be done September 8-12.

Superintendent Backer noted that every department is being looked at for budget cuts and no one is being singled out, saying, “everybody is part of this.” Cuts have already been made and more will be made to continue to improve the budget in the best interest of the district.

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

It was noted that the Staff Development day will be held August 25 at 7:30 a.m. September 2 is the first day of school .....
