The Minden Public Schools Board of Education met at C.L. Jones Middle School on Tuesday, July 13.
The minutes from last month’s meeting were approved and there was no public comment. The current financial reports reflected a transfer to the contingency fund, along with a running balance larger than the projected amount as well as a general fund $3,771,685.74 over the projected amount.
The bills were approved. In the superintendent’s report, Dr. Wheelock announced that Holdrege settled on Monday night to raise their base salary for teachers to $30,000 and that meant that four of the 15 local school districts had settled. Several districts were cutting positions to allow for raises to current faculty.
It was agreed that no executive session would be necessary for this month’s meeting. Minden High School Principal Don Hosick recommended Andrew Carlton for the open Success Center position. Carlton has previous experience as a teacher, as well as work experience with the Youth Rehabilitation and Treatment Center. He has agreed to accept a part-time position. He was approved for said position, pending a background check.
