Ada, MN — The Ada-Borup School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Tuesday morning this week where they tackled next year’s budget, more consolidation topics, facility updates, and more. With the City of Hendrum looking to take over the current Norman County West elementary once it becomes vacant, the Ada-Borup School District approved a resolution in support of the sale of the building, which includes financial assistance from the new district, according to Ada-Borup Superintendent Aaron Cook.

The Ada-Borup School Board approved their preliminary 2021-2022 budget. As of now, Superintendent Cook says the budget for the new district’s first year looks to be favorable, but there are lot of variables that could impact it positively or negatively, such as enrollment and funding from the state.

The board also discussed staffing at this week’s meeting. The board had intended to fill a Integration/Intervention Specialist position with a former Norman County West staff member. However, Superintendent Cook says there were no available staff to take on that position, so they will post that position externally.

And Cook provided an update on the building expansion and some other facility improvements coming to the school.

The Ada-Borup School Board also approved the resignation of Social Studies teacher Brian Bau and approved hiring Haley Kelvington as the new Phy Ed/Health Teacher.
