Posted in Preston Education

By Jade Sexton

The Fillmore Central High School building has been undergoing renovations this summer, including a large heating and venting project. At the regular school board meeting on July 23, principal Heath Olstad said the project is going according to schedule.

Olstad also mentioned new flooring that has been installed in a few classrooms at the high school, and a freezer that has been replaced. Olstad said he is grateful there is someone who checks on things during the weekend. The broken freezer was discovered, and they were able to save the food inside.

Personnel

The board accepted some hires and resignations during the meeting. The resignation of Jodie Daniels was approved, as well as Allison Braaten. The at-will contracts of Angie Haugerud, community education assistant; Melissa Laue, paraprofessional; and Brian Lee, paraprofessional, were approved.

The hire of Jade Sexton was approved for paraprofessional at the Root River Program. Jeffrey Dick was hired as a high school social studies teacher. He will be taking over the duties of Aaron Janssen, who will be taking over the duties of Jodie Daniels. Bernie Hurley was hired for the lead custodian position.

Tenure status was approved for Tom Siebenaler, Marit Janssen, and Carrie Mathison.

Other Business

The Root River Program contract with the City of Harmony for the use of the community center was approved with no changes from last year. Special Ed. director Michelle Breitsprecher said they are very happy with the contract and the support from the city.

The board approved the second reading of the handbooks for K-6, 7-12, Root River Program, faculty, and coaches.
