Mahnomen, MN — The Mahnomen School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night, where they approved their 2021 tax levy, held their World’s Best Workforce Presentation, and received an update on the COVID-19 situation in the district. The board held their truth-in taxation public hearing and then approved the certification of the levy at the maximum, $995,704, which is a slight increase over last year, according to Mahnomen Superintendent Jeff Bisek.

The school board also had their annual World’s Best Workforce presentation this week as well, in which districts are required by the state to set and examine annual goals for students. Some of the goals they were not able to measure success due to a lack of testing this year. Superintendent Bisek recaps their five main goals and how they measured up this past year.

And in regards to the COVID situation, Superintendent Bisek says while COVID is still prevalent, the situation is improving.

The Mahnomen High School is currently in the hybrid learning model while the elementary remains with in-person learning.

Also this week, the Mahnomen School Board accepted the retirement of bus driver Myron Henrikson, who has been with the district for more than 40 years.
