"That's my commitment, is we are really going to work on making every single face, name and soul that they all count". Board President Maribel Toure left the meeting before the vote.

MPS superintendent Mike Bitz told Mandan School Board members Monday that the assistant superintendent opening will close on Wednesday, and he said he would like to begin interviews next week.

The School Board has nine elected members, but only board members Carpenter, Sande, Amber Flynn and Katie Dachtler knew about the incident or Nybladh's suggestion to take the rest of the year off using paid leave, Meggen Sande said. The school district also retains the right of non-renewal of contracts and can dismiss teachers under certain conditions at any time.

The county has spent several years on or near the state's failing schools list.

Superintendent Christopher Marchese reiterated his concerns about a plan that would reduce the square footage per student too much because it would make the building too tight.

Wood said that he felt that it would be foolish not to build core spaces that are larger than the minimum because it would be hard to expand the core spaces once the building is finished. Meggen Sande said she contacted board member Eric Burin to discuss a matter regarding Nybladh, but he didn't reply, she said.

In November, the city's five-person school board was filled.

The 46-year-old Shiels was superintendent of Sonoma County's largest school district, Santa Rosa City Schools, from 2012 to January 2016.

Woman, 51, Stabbed to Death Sunday in Long Beach
His death came just half-an-hour before a woman in her 30s was stabbed to death in Brixton, South West London , just after 6.30pm. A man in his 20s has been arrested over the death and remains in custody. 'The victim and the suspect are known to each other'.

School enrollment is projected to increase slightly.

"One of the first questions we've always asked our police chiefs is, 'What are your thoughts about arming teachers?'" he said. The district will also pay a $400 a month auto allowance.

School Board members Charles Beatty III and Auerbach both indicated that they were in favor of keeping the funding level at $105 million to start the planning.

The proposed increase would put the tax rate at 29.6201 mills, Bill Stone, the district's director of business affairs, said.

"We reviewed our neighboring districts with regard to their contract options and most have chosen this option", Miller said.

In discussions earlier this year, the board saw that the budget doesn't fund the district's priorities for upgrading its internet network, introducing one-to-one student laptops in the elementary grades, or adding support staff like nurses and counselors. Teachers raises are 3.8%, 3.5% and 3.25% and they pick up more of the co-pay costs for prescriptions.

At a previous meeting, the base bid estimate for the roof was set at $523,500, while the estimate for the heating and cooling system project was $636,500.

Combined, Lee Elementary School and Lee Middle and High School have 134 choice students. School board president Mona Kirk said there were 15 completed applications received and six were selected from that pool.
