Posted in Canton Education

The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met for their regular meeting on May 19, 2015 at 7 pm. Board members Cristal Adkins, Jane Hall, and Mark Weidemann were not present at the meeting.

The minutes from the April 21, 2015 meeting were reviewed and approved by the board.

The board wished to congratulate the Mabel-Canton graduating class of 2015 and let them know how proud of them they are.

The dates and times for the 2015-16 school year board meetings were approved along with the calendar for the upcoming school year.

The district’s food service contract is up, and the board approved a motion to begin accepting bids for a new contract.

A resignation from paraprofessional, Monica Pierce, was accepted by the board.

Donations of $500 from the Mabel Lions Club, $250 from the American Legion, and $60 from Shelly Gerard were approved. The donations are for the 5th and 6th grade field trip to the state capitol. The board extended their thanks for the generous donations.

Superintendent Jennifer Backer informed the board that they will be approving the finalized budget at the June meeting. The budget and expenditures are on track, and the 2014-15 fiscal year will not be ending in statutory operating debt. Backer noted that the budget is available to the public to view anytime it is requested.

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

The Dean of Students/Interim Administrator, Michelle Weidemann, gave her report to the board. She thanked Lana Hollar for putting together the scholarship dinner. Approximately $20,000 in scholarships were awarded to students.

Weidemann presented the tentative class schedule for the 2015-16 school year and pointed out that it is very student driven and was put together with input from the students.

The school is busy with spring field trips and is happy to announce that almost every field trip has been or will be paid for with donations.

The current enrollment number for Mabel-Canton is maintaining at 245. Backer hopes to see the district increase its enrollment over the next few years and is hoping that the student driven class offerings will pull in more people.
