The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on August 20, 2013 at 7p.m. All members were present except Mark Weideman, Todd Metzke, and Chris Hansen.

The Summer School Program at the school was a success with almost 30 participants. The board wished to congratulate Justin Ward for placing 26th at the National High School Finals Rodeo Steer Wrestling Competition in Rock Springs, Wyo.

The board approved motions for membership into the Hiawatha Valley Education District for the 2013-14 school year, to accept a donation of 21 laptops from The React Center, and for the School Bus Transportation Contract.

The following were approved for hiring, pending background checks and licensing: Roger Lamm as the agriculture teacher, Jill Kleckner as the EBD teacher, Heidi Myhre as the music teacher, and Heather Wilder as the English teacher. The resignations of Jackie Parker, Lauren Lund, and Chelsey Ardinger were accepted.

The Mabel Record was approved as the official school district newspaper. It was voted to approve the Joint Powers Agreement for the 2013-14 school year with the MnSCU System for PSEO students. The Special Student Services Agreement with Innovative Therapy Solutions, LLC was approved.

A motion was approved to have the signatures of board members Chris Hansen, Todd Metzke, Jennifer Backer, Mary Pat Kuhn, Troy Soiney, and Cristal Adkins on the Bank of the West district credit card application. Chris Hansen, Todd Metzke, and Jennifer Backer will have credit cards with limits of $5,000 for Hansen and Metzke and $10,000 for Backer. The board also approved a motion to have staff who use the school credit card sign out the card stating their purpose for using and sign it back in when they’re done.

Superintendent Jennifer Backer and Todd Metzke reviewed the budget before the board meeting. The budget looks good, and the district is up a number of students from last year although the final number won’t be clear until school starts.

The board discussed possible changes to the student handbook. They decided to approve a motion to allow responsible cell phone use by high school students during the lunch hour. A change to the current closed campus policy was also discussed, but it was decided that due to the lack of options available for lunch in Mabel and the concern for student safety, the campus will remain closed for lunch during .....
