Climax, MN — The Climax-Shelly School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Monday night. At the meeting, there was some discussions about the district’s Operating Levy that is scheduled to expire in the year 2023. Climax-Shelly Superintendent Michael Underwood says that could result in significant revenue loss for the district, so the board is looking into their options for renewal.

The board also heard from Polk County Public Health, who is looking into potentially putting on a vaccination clinic for students at the school.

There was also a number of staffing items discussed this week as well. Most notably it was announced that Superintendent Michael Underwood would be resigning before the end of the year. His resignation is effective May 15th. Underwood states that he is looking forward to spending some quality time with family.

And last, but not least, the Monson family once again came through in a big way for the district.  Underwood says they accepted a $40,000 donation for technology needs.

The Monson Family has contributed to a number of items throughout the years at the Climax-Shelly School, including technology needs and theater and music department upgrades.
