    Termination of Probationary Certified Staff 

    Due to decreases/changes in enrollment, elimination of positions, uncertainty of funding, lack of funds, performance, or return from leave of senior teachers, the Board agreed to terminate one teacher.


    Carole Nielsen, executive director of administrative services, and Bridget Peterson, director of finance, presented the 2018-19 projected budgets for nutrition services, community services, capital outlay and debt service funds. While these budgets are an integral part of school operations, they operate financially in separate funds or reserves. These budgets will be included in the final budget document that will be presented to the Board for approval at the June 26, 2018, School Board meeting. Details can be found on the Budgets and Finance page at www.moundsviewschools.org/finance after the June 26 Board meeting.

    Enrollment report

    Enrollment projections for the 2018-19 school year indicate an anticipated enrollment of 11,257 students, which would represent an increase of 67 students from last fall's October 1 report. Next fall's class size projections do not exceed current class size averages. To review the report, visit here.

    District Operational Plan adopted

    Each year, the School Board approves a series of goals and related activities on which the Superintendent and Cabinet will focus their work. This is known as the District Operational Plan (DOP). It is directly related to the District's vision and to the School Board's strategic directions for the year. The DOP has been developed by the Superintendent and his Cabinet and has been previously discussed with the Board at work sessions and Board meetings. To view the entire DOP, please visit here.


    The Board discussed issues and updates related to AMSD and Northeast Metro 916.
