Ada, MN -- The Ada-Borup School Board approved moving forward with all in-person education for all grade levels this fall at their meeting on Monday morning. However, Ada-Borup Superintendent Aaron Cook says things will still look different this year and plans may still change.

With the decisions to switch between in-person, hybrid, or distance learning based on the number of COVID-19 cases, Superintendent Cook encourages everyone in Norman County to take responsibility so that the local districts can avoid going away from the in-person education.

Also at this week’s meeting, the Ada-Borup School Board approved the refinancing of a few of the district’s bonds, which Cook says will save them a considerable amount of money over time due to the current low interest rates.

And under staffing items, the board approved hiring a new social studies teacher, accepted a pair of resignations, and will need to hire more substitute teachers.
