School board meeting tonight
The second regular Sauk Centre school board meeting is tonight (Monday, April 21) at 7:30 p.m. at the secondary school media center. Reports will be given by Superintdent Dan Brooks about the district's Q Comp application to the Minnesota Department of Education as well as an application to MDE for a new Integration and Achievement program in conjunction with area school districts.
Continued review and discussion of the budget cuts will also take place at the meeting. Last Thursday the board heard about new financial figures and options for potential budget cuts. The new list stands about $70,000 to $75,000 short of the targeted figure of $300,000 that the district seeks to trim from the budget.
It's all set to begin at about 8 p.m. after the meeting is closed from 7:30 p.m. for up to 30 minutes for the board to hear student-specific education data. The closing of the meeting is ursuant to Minnesota Statute 13D.01.
Further articles on the budget cuts will appear in this week's April 24 issue of the Sauk Centre Herald.
