Ulen, MN — The Ulen-Hitterdal School Board spent time discussing a proposed plan to expand daycare in the community at their regular board meeting last Wednesday. With only two licensed daycares currently in the Ulen-Hitterdal district, Ulen-Hitterdal Superintendent Todd Cameron says they’ve been looking into building a daycare on site that they could lease out to interested parties. He adds that the project would come at a good time for the district, whose building bond will be paid for in the next year.

Building a new daycare from scratch would likely not be cost efficient for a private daycare provider, but a taxpayer funded operation with assistance from the school district could be more sustainable. Cameron says this would also be another tool in the toolbox for attracting people to the community.

And at last week’s board meeting, Superintendent Cameron says the school board approved a number of their shared services agreements.

The Ulen-Hitterdal School Board also approved the authorization of just over $1 million in general obligation bonds for this summer’s heat pump replacement project.
