The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on December 16, 2014 for a Truth in Taxation meeting at 6:30 p.m. immediately followed by a regular meeting. All board members were present.

Several community members attended the Truth in Taxation meeting. The school district business manager, Todd Lechtenburg gave the presentation. A deficit in the amount of approximately $38,000 is currently projected and he will have updated numbers on the budget in January or February. The board approved the maximum levy.

The minutes from the November 11, 2014 board meeting were reviewed and approved with one correction.

The board wished the staff, students, and community members of the Mabel-Canton school district happy holidays.

The board approved the hiring of Heather Kleiboer as the Yearbook co-advisor for the school year of 2014-2015.

Two donations were accepted. Kimberlie and Matthew Dillon gave $100 designated for the band department and Helen Kahn-Williams gave $500 towards the high school science department to be used for field trips, curriculum, and supplies. The board expressed their appreciation and wished to thank the individuals for their generosity.

Lechtenburg noted that after he’s finished with the 2015 budget in January or February of next year, he will begin working on the budget for 2016. The current budget presentation was approved by the board.

The payment of the district bills and electronic fund transfers were reviewed. Board member Jane Hall pointed out that Schmidt Bus Services has effectively voided the terms of their contract with the school district by not invoicing monthly as agreed upon. Superintendent Jennifer Backer stated that there have been monthly meetings held with the bus service to work on this issue as it affects the school’s budget. She emphasized that the district needs to be sure to be ethical in their dealings with Schmidt’s. The last meeting was very productive with Schmidt’s agreeing to provide a paper copy of their bus routes to the school by January 1. The possibility of dropping the fourth route to save the district money was raised at the meeting, but Schmidt’s offered to waive the fuel surcharge instead which was a much better option for the school.

The district bills and electronic fund transfers were approved by the board.

Backer informed the board that there will be a sta .....
