NM Board Approves FY 19 Budget, Calendar

North Mahaska School Board approved two major portions of business to set up the 2018- 19 academic year at its monthly meeting April 9. Board members approved the school Calendar and the annual budget among other items on a genuinely routine agenda.

The board conducted a public hearing on the budget before the regular session began. No members of the public were present to comment and board business manager Cindy Quang no written comments had been received on either the budget or the calendar. Both were approved. Under the adopted budget patrons will pay $12.69 per $1,000 valuation. The board accepted two resignations.

Jordan Smith resigned as science teacher and eighth grade class sponsor. Paraeducator Barb Dessel also submitted her resignation. Four staff contracts received unanimous approval. Maddie Mitchell was approved as elementary special aid teacher and Jenna Carrico as student council sponsor.
