Enrollment numbers up for Mabel-Canton School District


Mon, Feb 23rd, 2015
Posted in Mabel Education

The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on February 17th, 2014 at 7 pm. All board members were present.

The minutes from the January 12th and 28th, 2015 meetings were reviewed and approved.

Minnesota School Board Recognition Week is February 16-20, 2015. The dedication and care that the Mabel-Canton school board has shown for the district is appreciated.

A $20 donation from Troy and Trisha Soiney designated for technology use was accepted. The donation was greatly appreciated by the district.

The Mabel Business Association donated $11,890.00 towards the water storage tank for the school. Board member Chris Loppnow abstained from the vote to accept the donation as she’s a member of the association. The board thanked the association for their generous donation.

The school business manager, Todd Netzke, presented the final revised budget for 2015. Superintendent Jennifer Backer noted that the budget was several months early and that Netzke is on top of his game. The projected end of year balance is $48,619. Backer will have a Powerpoint presentation of the budget ready for viewing at the March school board meeting. The 2016 budget will be prepared for the June school board meeting.

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

Student representative, senior Sara Vettleson-Trutza presented her report of student happenings to the board. The playoffs are coming up and students are preparing for them along with the senior class trip. The school recently had a special burrito bar for lunch, which was enjoyed by all the students.

Dean of Students Michelle Weidemann was unable to attend the meeting, so Superintendent Backer gave Weidemann’s report for her. In recent years, several senior class students have opted out of the senior class trip. The Mabel-Canton faculty discussed ways to encourage attendance. They also suggested assigning a project involving researching daily points of interest on the trip itinerary to students who choose not to go. A final decision has not been made at this time.

Weidemann wished to congratulate Mabel-Canton student Jonathan Smith for placing 12th in the spelling bee in Rochester.

Superintendent Jennifer Backer was pleased to report that the current enrollment number is 248 which is up from 240 at the end of 2014. She hop .....
