The MFL MarMac School Board approved a flurry of staffing changes at its April 13 regular meeting.

That included resignations from Jillian Burke as a seventh grade basketball coach, Melissa Haberichter and Audrey Posten as co-yearbook advisers and Monica Schwartzhoff as a middle school teacher.

Contracts were approved for Colton Lueck and Madyson Walker as middle school teachers, Kaitlyn Stone-Strock for 7-12 instrumental music, Jake Wilke for high school special education and golf and Brandi Folsom for high school English. Folsom will split the yearbook contract with Megan Snitker.

In addition, the board transferred Amber Hendricks from middle school special education to fourth grade.

COVID-19 resolution approved

At the meeting, the board also approved a resolution in regard to COVID-19 that states the MFL MarMac School District will continue paying its staff through the duration of the pandemic and will continue offering voluntary educational enrichment opportunities to students. The resolution suspends any board policies that prevent the district from achieving these points.

Elementary addition will be bid out

Superintendent Dale Crozier told the board he plans to bid out the elementary addition yet this spring.

“I’m not sure if we’ll get a good price or not,” he said, “but if we don’t bid, we won’t know.”

The project, which includes new and larger restrooms along with an updated circle drive and entrance, was part of the district bond measure that failed last month. It was originally budgeted for $550,000, but Crozier said it will likely cost more because it won’t be completed with the larger school improvement project.

Work could start as early as this summer, he noted.

Budget approved

Following a public hearing, the board approved the district’s fiscal year 2020-2021 budget. The proposed property tax rate was $14.97415 per $1,000 taxable valuation.
