Principal of Mabel-Canton High School resigns


Mon, Aug 25th, 2014
Posted in Mabel Education

The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on August 19th, 2014 at 7 p.m. All board members were present.

The minutes from the July 15, 2014 board meeting were reviewed and approved.

The board wished to welcome back the staff and students of Mabel-Canton.

The board approved the breakfast and lunch prices for the 2014-15 school year. The prices are as follows; K-12 breakfast: $1.30, adult breakfast: $2.10, K-6 lunch: $2.15, 7-12 lunch: $2.25, adult lunch: $4, milk break: $65, and snack cart: $55. The increases are in accordance to federal law.

Principal Jeff Nolte’s resignation, effective August 15, 2014, was accepted by the board, and Superintendent Jennifer Backer thanked him for his service to the Mabel-Canton School District.

The Salvation Army donated $500 to the school for the school milk program.

The 2014-15 Student Handbooks were approved with no changes from last year. The cell phone policy put in place last year was a seamless change, and the students were very respectful of the policy. Superintendent Backer will review the handbook with the Interim Student Administrator at a later date.

The board approved Michelle Weidemann as Interim Student Administrator/Dean of Students for the 2014-15 school year. Board member Mark Weidemann abstained from voting. Superintendent Backer will meet with Michelle Weidemann to determine how many classes she will be able to teach this year with her new duties. Backer has confidence that Weidemann will perform well with her new job.

The resignation of paraprofessional Joyce Graves was accepted by the board, and they thanked her for her years of service.

Mary Breon was approved as the new part-time choral/general music teacher for the 2014-15 school year. Mabel-Canton and Lanesboro school districts have agreed to share a music teacher which will allow Breon to be hired at full-time hours.

The 2014-15 budget is almost finished and will be audited September 8-12, 2014 by the district’s business manager, Todd Lechtenberg. Superintendent Backer commended the staff for the way they’ve tightened their belts since last May to save the district money.

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

The office staff is in the process of moving payroll, etc. to online for efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
