The Board of Education Monday will accept a donation from Sprint of 300 lines of cellular internet service when it meets at 6 p.m.in the Education Service Center, 1516 Washington St.


The proposed 2018-19 spending plan is $27,894,313, an increase of $489,197, or 1.79 percent over the current budget.

The board will also vote Monday whether to accept a $280,000 bid from Horizon Construction Group Inc. of Sandy Lake to fix the high school retaining wall. The candidates are: Melinda Leising, Donna Durr Arancio and Samuel Catterson.

The $34,508,432 budget proposal calls for a 3.13 percent local tax levy increase, which is the district's allowable tax levy limit under state guidelines, according to the district.

District residents can vote on the proposed budget at the schoolhouse at 7:30 p.m.


When it comes to prioritizing and implementing plans to address student performance outcomes, the board scored the school chief as "effective", noting that while she's come up with a plan to review special education and English language learning, it had yet to receive her specific recommendations for improvement.

In cutting 1 mill off the tax rate in 2017, the school district said it would save taxpayers around $1.9 million. The candidates include incumbents Amy Mayo and Brian Judycki and challenger John Stewart. The budget proposal would increase the tax levy to voters by approximately $200,000, or 3.4 percent.

A second proposition deals with allowing a senior from the high school to serve as a non-voting member of the school board.

In Springs, voters will be asked to reelect Springs School Board President Barbara Dayton along with the school's proposed $28.87 million budget for the 2018-19 school year.
