Mabel-Canton continues discussion of controlled entry


Fri, Apr 19th, 2013
Posted in Mabel Education

The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on April 16, 2013 at 7 pm. All members were present except Cristal Adkins.

The meeting opened with the Pledge of Allegiance. Michael Moriarty made three additions to the agenda. A motion was made to approve the additions and carried. Consent agenda items including the minutes from the March 26, 2013 meeting and the monthly bills were approved.

First on the agenda was old business with controlled entry into the school being discussed. Several of the board members were not in favor of a buzz-in and camera system being used to allow entry into the school. Board member Jane Hall stated the teachers and workers in the school need to be vigilant and be sure there are no doors left propped open. Troy Soiney commented if someone really wanted access to the school, a locked door wouldn’t stop them. Mr. Moriarty said quotes have been made for the addition of a buzz-in and camera system and it wasn’t terribly expensive, costing the school approximately $2500. Principal Jeff Nolte said the school had gotten bids from Custom Alarm, and the salesman expressed concern that the quality of the camera needed to be good enough to easily identify individuals before being buzzed into the school. The board tabled the discussion for the time being, but will revisit it for the next school year. They did decide to add more surveillance cameras to have better coverage of the South and back parking lots although a date to do so was not selected at this meeting.

Early retirement packages were accepted and approved for Dennis Rud, Holly Becker, and Bonnie Wenthold. A letter of resignation from Nicki Terbeest was approved. Paul Tollefsrud requested a day without pay on May 2nd which was also approved.

For new business, the district insurance renewal will have a 6% increase bringing the total to an annual $29,309. The board also approved a $5 a month increase for the 3 day Pre-kindergarten class in the 2013/2014 school year. The 2 day pre-k class tuition and transportation fees for both classes will not increase.

Mr. Moriarty stated the budget for the next school year will be ready by the June meeting. He is expecting $3 million in revenue in the general fund and $3 million in expenses. Moriarty also said the school needs to purchase another van since only one of the two the school currently owns is acceptable for student use.
