Ulen, MN — The Ulen-Hitterdal School Board held their regular monthly meeting last Wednesday, February 10th. At the meeting the board approved a Product Service Agreement with Johnson Controls to replace all of the district’s heat pumps. Ulen-Hitterdal Superintendent Todd Cameron says it’s roughly a million dollar project, but it needs to be done.

Cameron also noted that they would anticipate more $200,000 in energy saving rebates. They plan to begin work on replacing the heat pumps in June and finish up in August.

Also at last week’s meeting, the school board approved moving forward with a Gifted and Talented Program under the direction on Angela Klevgaard.

And Superintendent Cameron provided an update on the COVID situation in the district. He says staff are getting vaccinated and they are looking into switching back to five days of in-person education instead of four.

The Ulen-Hitterdal School Board also approved the purchase of 2020 Dodge Caravan SXT from Kellys Chrysler Center, approved a leave request from Kelsey Rasmussen, and approved hiring Diane Rehder as a long-term substitute.
