Kingsland Public Schools receive finance award

Posted in Education

Superintendent John McDonald announced to the school board during their meeting Monday night, May 16 that the Kingsland Public Schools had received the 2011 School Finance Award for Fiscal Year 2010 from the Minnesota Department of Education.

"This makes five years in a row - that is uncommon and phenomenal," he said. "This board and past boards have done an excellent job in difficult economic times of keeping this district in sound fiscal shape along with an eye on quality education."

"I also want to give special thanks and recognition to Kathy Beevers," McDonald said. "We have one of the finest business managers in the state of Minnesota."

The award recognizes districts for timely submission of fiscal year 2010 Uniform Financial Accounting and Reporting Standards data and annual financial statement, as required by Minnesota Statutes, as well as for having positive fund balances, demonstrating fiscal policies and procedures, and personnel training.

In other action, the board approved the Read 180, reading intervention program. "We are excited about this program. It is an excellent reading program, especially for students who struggle with reading," McDonald said. "We will deliver this program to special education students and at-risk students in the middle school in Wykoff and here at the high school."

Read 180 is a comprehensive system of curriculum, instruction, assessment and professional development designed for students reading two or more years below grade level.

The start-up costs for the program will be funded through the district's special education funds. The Read 180 program will be funded by federal grants.

The next school board meeting will be Monday, June 20 at 5 p.m. in the district conference room.
