The school district would like to formally thank the veterans for their service to the local communities and to our country.

The payment of the district bills were approved. Superintendent Jennifer Backer noted that the district is in deficit spending and that she would address where the money is going at the December meeting.

Principal Jeff Nolte gave his report to the board. He stated that November is when the tenure positions are evaluated and that there is a new peer evaluation component to the process.
