Fertile, MN — The Fertile-Beltrami School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday night, June 8th. With the new budget cycle starting in July, the board adopted the preliminary budget for the 2021-2022 shool year. As of right now, Fertile-Beltrami Superintendent Brian Clarke says they are just shy of breaking even, but that doesn’t include potential funding increases that may be on the way.

The school board also approved a number of staffing items, including the year-round staff contracts, according to Superintendent Clarke.

And a new school bus will be added to the Fertile-Beltrami transportation fleet with help from some Federal funding.

Now that the school year is over, Superintendent Clarke says they’re already looking forward to next year, which will hopefully be back to normal.

The Fertile-Beltrami School Board meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month.
