The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met for their regular meeting on April 21st, 2015 at 7 pm. All board members were present.

The minutes from the March 17th, 2015 meeting were reviewed and approved by the board.

Chairperson Cristal Adkins noted that the Annual Senior Turkey Dinner was held on March 29 with over 1100 community members served by the Senior class. The district appreciated the amazing display of community and the generosity shown.

A big thank you was extended to Doug Wyffels and Suzie Monroe for chaperoning the Senior Class Trip.

The Finance Committee gave a brief report of their meeting which took place right before the board meeting. Committee member Mary Pat Kuhn noted that they have begun negotiations.

Board member Jane Hall thought that it would be prudent to get an estimate for any other repairs that may need to be done beyond the $5680. Superintendent Jennifer Backer concurred and will be acquiring more information from WHV about possible costs this week. The board approved the purchase at the cost of $5680.

The board passed a motion to approve the External User Access Recertification identified official. This was a formality, and the same people will still have access to the school’s reports.

Student Representatives Jon Selness and Sara Vettleson-Trutza requested that the senior class be allowed to take May 28 and 29 off from school. Vettleson-Trutza stated that the class has worked very hard all year and could use the time for graduation and college preparations. The board approved the days off with the stipulation that there will not be a senior skip day this year.

The school business manager, Todd Netzke reviewed the current budget with the school board. The state aid for Special Education is still lagging, but is expected to start coming in soon. Hall asked if the budget allows for the hiring of an extra custodian for the summer. Backer assured her that she and Netzke are currently moving some funds around to arrange for extra custodial help.

Backer commended the district on saving .....
