Hendrum, MN — The Norman County West School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday night, December 15th in Hendrum. The board reviewed and accepted the annual report from Brady Martz & Associates. The audit didn’t show many surprises for the district as the board has been closely examining their finances over the past several months, but Norman County West Superintendent Dr. Jim Hess says its always good to gain some additional insight from a third party.

The school board also accepted their World’s Best Workforce Report, which was presented by Principal Deanne Flom. The report, which is a requirement from the state, allows the district to set and examine goals for their students.

And while the architectural auction of the old high school building is on hold while the district works to negotiate a purchase agreement with the city of Halstad, the Norman County West School District will be moving forward with an auction of some surplus items at the elementary in Hendrum in the meantime. 

That online auction will likely be posted later this week. The Norman County West School Board also approved their 2020 payable 2021 levy, approved participation in the Minnesota Reading and Math Corps program, and accepted a donation from Red River Valley Cooperative for $5,495.81.
