Fosston, MN — Not a lot of action items, but lots of informational reports were given at this week’s Fosston School Board meeting. The meeting was moved ahead to Tuesday night instead of Thursday to align with the MEA break. The school board started off the meeting with the presentation of the annual audit. Fosston Superintendent Sue Chase says they were pleased with the results.

The Fosston School Board also had an update from ICS, the school’s construction management firm in charge of the recent renovation projects. Superintendent Chase says even though they were able to move back into the classrooms, there are still a number of punch list items and touch ups that need to be done before they sign off completely on the project.

Chase anticipates it may not be until Christmas before everything is finally completed.

The board received a report on a new STEM program that Mr. Gutterud is launching. Superintendent Chase says one of the district’s goals was

 to bring the school into the 21st century and this new program appears to be doing an excellent job at doing just that.

And on a similar note, the Fosston School Board was also very happy to accept a donation of $25,000 from Ultima Bank, which Superintendent Chase says will be used for technology needs in the classroom. 

The Fosston School Board also accepted the resignation of paraprofessional Cooper Wilson.
