The Fillmore Central School Board met for their regular meeting on May 24 at 6 p.m.

The minutes of the previous meeting were reviewed and approved along with the district bills.

Principal Heath Olstad reported that the local banks are continuing their mini-grant program through the 2016-17 school year.

Dean of Students Chris Mensink gave the elementary report. Kendyl Kraling represented Fillmore Central on the field before the May 16 Minnesota Twins game. She received four tickets from the Minnesota Twins Attendance Program for perfect school attendance.

The fourth grade wax museum went very well. The elementary grades are in the process of taking their field trips. The last day of school will be on June 3.

Director of Special Education Micki Breitsprecher reported that the Root River Work Session held in late April went very well with a great turnout.

The district continues to have an opening for a special education teacher to start in the 2016-17 school year. They are also looking at the paraprofessional needs for the upcoming year.

The Community Education department applied for and will be receiving Pathway II funding again next year.

On behalf of the American Legion, Jay Meyer presented a copy of Boots & Badges: Honoring Fillmore County Veteranas to each of the school libraries. One of the books was purchased by the VFW and the other by the Legion.

The resignations of ECFE parent educator Amanda Heibel, paraprofessional Traci Ward, and daycare worker Julie Pickett were approved.
