Posted in Mabel Education

The Mabel-Canton Board of Education met on February 18, 2014 at 7 p.m. All members were present except for Troy Soiney and Mark Weidemann. Principal Jeff Nolte was also absent.

The minutes from the January 21, 2014 board meeting were reviewed and approved.

The board wished to congratulate the students who took part in Sumdog’s Southeast Minnesota Math Contest. Forty-one Mabel-Canton school students answered a total of 15,084 questions correctly making Mabel-Canton the overall winner and a daily winner in the contest. The contest took place online from January 24-30. Four Mabel-Canton students placed in the top 10 out of 672 total contestants.

February 17-21 is Minnesota School Board recognition week. The Mabel-Canton school district extended its thanks to the school board for their service and commitment to the staff and students.

The board reviewed and considered the second reading of Policy 714 regarding the fund balance. They also considered the approval of the Public Data Request Form. The request form will allow community members to go through the proper channels to receive information about the school district.

The board reviewed the financial report. The district’s business manager, Todd Lechtenberg presented the part of the budget that was finished ahead of schedule. The rest of the budget will be presented at the March 2014 meeting. The projected revenue is less than originally anticipated, but Lechtenberg will be working to increase the district’s revenue to improve the budget.

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

Student representatives, Jon Selness and Sara Vettleson-Trutza, were not present at the meeting, but did meet with Superintendent Jennifer Backer earlier in the day to discuss student happenings.

Superintendent Backer stated that she’s pleased with the student/staff connections and overall climate at the school. There is good collaboration between teachers to ensure that each student receives the attention and intervention they need. Backer also reported that there is good communication among the staff and students at the school.

The current enrollment number for the school district is 257 which is average for this time of year.
