The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on October 15, 2013 at 7 p.m. All members were present.

The board accepted Dave Swenson’s resignation and thanked him for his 11 years of service as school board director. Swenson thanked the board for their support and said, “It’s been a real learning experience and it’s been fun.”

The consent agenda was approved. It included approval of the final reading of the Student Representative on the School Board Policy, approval of School Board Director Dave Swenson’s resignation, approval of the declaration of a School Board of Directors ISD 238 seat vacancy, approval of the Cooperative Sports Agreement which allows the Mabel-Canton school district to combine wrestling with Fillmore Central, and approval of a one day leave of absence for high school business teacher, Michelle Weidemann.

Superintendent Jennifer Backer presented the current budget. The revenue for student state aid was increased. The year to date expenditures are down at this time and the budget looks good.

Board member Jane Hall expressed concern over the order placed a few months ago for new basketball uniforms as it was over budget. Superintendent Backer said that the team is currently soliciting for donations to help cover the costs, but that in the future, big purchases such as that would come through the board and have to be approved before being made.

The payment of the district bills were approved.

Principal Jeff Nolte thanked band teacher Katie Larson for her hard work at homecoming. He reported that homecoming went well except for a tornado warning towards the end of the dance during which the attendees had to seek shelter in the tunnel. Principal Nolte stated that college week is under way and college representatives will be present this coming week to speak with students. He also reported that there is more racial diversity in the school this year than there has been in years past. The school is working to discover new ways to support the new students and make them feel welcome.

Superintendent Backer stated that the enrollment number last year at this time was 256 students and the current number is 255.

The Crisis Team has been working on a crisis plan. They are currently reviewing the new policy and it will be presented to the board within the next few months.

The board reviewed and discussed the second r .....
