The Minden Public Schools Board of Education met Tuesday, August 9 at C.L. Jones Middle School. They approved the board minutes, and there was no public comment.
The financial reports showed Minden Public Schools is “where we need to be, compared to last year.” according to Superintendent Melissa Wheelock. The reports showed no negative balances and the school’s preliminary audit began the first week of August.
The board approved the bills, after hearing explanations for the expenses related to repairs on the conditioned air mechanical system, as well as fees paid to Fifth Street Printing ($3,703.67) for the school calendars that were mailed out.
In the superintendent’s report, Dr. Wheelock informed the board of upcoming meetings, including the August 22 meeting of the board finance committee and a board budget hearing on September 13. She also reported that the Minden Public Schools Board of Education met all requirements to be designated an “Outstanding Board” by the Nebraska Association of School Boards. They only needed a voting representative present at the meetings to earn the designation.
The administrators report included information on the new scoreboards, which are complete and operational, waiting only for the proper advertisements to be placed. There was also credit given to the staff members who attended staff development and training meetings during the summer.
With that, the board went into executive session to discuss personnel and legal matters.
