The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on December 17, 2013 immediately following the Truth in Taxation meeting. All members were present.

The minutes from the November 19, 2013 board meeting were reviewed and approved.

The board wished to thank the students and staff who helped clean up after the recent 1st grade classroom flooding that occurred when a pipe broke sometime during the night of December 9. Superintendent Jennifer Backer expressed gratitude that there were no students present when the pipe broke.

Former board member Dave Swenson was present at the meeting. The board expressed their appreciation for his years of service to the school district.

The board approved a donation of $150 from Dave Zimmer for basketball uniforms and extended their thanks for the donation.

A motion was made and passed to accept the audit report and the Truth in Taxation report.

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

Principal Jeff Nolte gave his report to the board. The weather was good for the recent musical concerts, and he wished to congratulate all the students on a wonderful performance. Benchmark testing was recently begun, and Principal Nolte stated that the students’ academic progress so far this year looks good. The district is currently working to further define the teacher evaluation process in accordance with the World’s Best Workforce mandate from the Minnesota Department of Education.

Principal Nolte noted that in the seven years he has held the principal position at Mabel-Canton schools, almost every area of the curriculum has been updated. He has begun analyzing the curriculum adoption and next year the school will begin to cycle through to update the curriculum again. He also set up a meeting with the school’s data management coordinator.

The overall reading scores have not been as high the last couple of years as Nolte would like to see them, and measures are being taken to analyze the statistics and improve them.

Several January Term students from Luther College will be at Mabel-Canton during the month of January. The IEA, or Institute for Environmental Assessment, recently held their monthly safety meeting which went well. The application for next year’s Minnesota Reading Corp needs to be started soon.
