Year end events get consideration by Barneveld board
Year end events and registration procedures were items in front of the Barneveld School Board Wednesday.
Principal Erin Eslinger discussed end of year events. They will be governed by health department guidelines and made as memorable as possible.
Eslinger also updated the board on registration for fall 2021 courses which will be taking place soon.
Superintendent Joe Price explained staffing for the 2021-22 school year and explained how academic recovery from the COVID period will be handled. He said math will be receiving extra attention.
Compensation of staff was also discussed and will be a future agenda item.
Price also told the board he received a request earlier in the day from Mount Horeb to have Barneveld join them as a wrestling co-op. The two schools had previously co-oped with the last year for that 2016.
Price also updated the board on how the budget is doing during COVID and said the district is in good shape. He said expenses are at 57% of budget and he anticipates the ability to grow the fund balance at the end of the fiscal year.
Price answered questions on possible COVID money the district could expect and said there are some politics at work right now so he won't have information until June. He added their may be some funds schools could tap into with a percentage that must go to academic recovery. He will report to committees as he gets information.
Price said he is conservative but expects several hundred thousand to be returned.
The sale of bonds will take place this week for the district's refinancing approved last meeting. He said the district will save $5.6 million in interest over 20 years....
