NEW ULM - During a regular meeting Thursday, the District 88 Board of Education is expected to appoint a new board member to replace Jill Hulke, who recently resigned. She was ineligible to serve because her home was outside the district.
The board concluded the process of accepting applications for the seat vacated by Hulke last Friday, and the Personnel Committee reviewed the applications Monday.
The appointee will serve until the next general election in November 2014. At that time, a new board member will be elected.
The board is also expected to decide how to allocate $1,334,534 in new operating levy funding generated for next year, plus some $114,00 in new state aid (new "foundation formula" funding).
It is expected to approve a new, $21,700 contract with CliftonLarsonAllen for next year's financial audit. The firm has provided this service for several years.
The board is also expected to approve a math curriculum review report.
The regular board meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the District Administrative Center.
Immediately before it, at 5:30 p.m., the board will hold the work session that was cancelled twice before because of winter weather.
During the work session, it will consider a finance option for reconstructing school parking lots presented by Pat Heminover of financial consultants Springsted, Inc.; hear a technology status report from Technology Director Eric Simmons; options for consideration in designating next year's projected revenue increases, presented by Superintendent Harold Remme; and the math curriculum review, presented by high school co-principal Steve Weber.
