(STAPLES, MN) — The Staples-Motley School Board met on Monday to discuss items ranging from vaccines to a new education plan from the governor and more, so we spoke with superintendent Shane Tappe to get the latest.

Tappe first went over the board’s reorganizational meeting from earlier in the month and how things are looking moving forward.

This week is Paraprofessional and Support Staff Appreciation Week at Staples-Motley, so Tappe wanted to give a shoutout to those working in those positions at the school, as they have been indispensable throughout the entire pandemic.

The board was then updated on their vaccine situation; Tappe says more are on the way, and that they will continue to stress communication with the faculty on their distribution.

Finally, Tappe talked about the Governor’s new Due North Education Plan for Minnesota, outlining some of its key features and how those will come into play for Staples-Motley.

We thank Shane Tappe for his time. Our full interview with him, in which he also mentions a bond referendum election taking place in April, may be found below.
