Twin Valley, MN — The Norman County East School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night, December 21st. As part of that regular meeting, they also held their Truth-In Taxation hearing. While there was no public comment at the meeting, Norman County East Superintendent Rob Nudell says taxpayers will likely see an increase this year as local valuations are up, and enrollment is down slightly.

Dr. Melinda Anderson presented the district’s annual World’s Best Workforce report to the board at the meeting this week as well. Superintendent Nudell says the district was able to meet most of the their annual goals, however some of them they were unable to track due to the pandemic and lack of testing this spring.

And it was a good month for grants and contributions. Nudell says the school will be receiving a total of $30,000 in CARES funding from the city and county and they were recently awarded a grant for fifty T-Mobile Hot Spots.

It was the last meeting for board member Nate Sather, who did not run for reelection this year. Sather was recognized at the meeting with a plaque for his 8 years of service on the school board. Now retired elementary teacher John Anderson will take over on the board in January.
