Ada-Borup-West School Board Reports Higher than Anticipated Enrollment
Ada, MN — The Ada-Borup-West School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday morning, which was the first ever meeting in the new board room located in the new offices. The district is a week into the new school year and Superintendent Aaron Cook was happy to report the enrollment was up to start the year.
The Ada-Borup-West School Board also approved the 2021 payable 2022 proposed levy. Cook says taxpayers should see a levy decrease of around 9%.
The district is continuing to keep an eye on the COVID situation and make adjustments as needed. Currently masks are not required, but encouraged. Superintendent Cooks says there tends to be some hostility towards students who do wear masks, so the district is focusing on trying to make those students feel comfortable.
And Cook provided an update on how the new addition is working out now that students have been in the building for the last week.
The Ada-Borup-West School Board also approved the resignation of para Molly Jones and the hiring of Carmen Kemper, accepted a contract with WFO Enterprises for technology integrationist services, and approved the school board 2021-2022 goals.
