The minutes from the March 25, 2015 board meeting were reviewed and approved.

The district bills and payroll were approved by the board.

Principal Heath Olstad reported that, although the weather was hit or miss, the senior class trip was a success. Twenty-six of the twenty-eight senior students went on the trip, and seven of the eight foreign exchange students were able to go.

Due to a glitch in the program, the MCA testing was delayed a day and half, but is currently underway and going well.
