Adressed at the meeting was the reseignation of Director of Business Services--Greg Anklan. The main reason Superintendent Dean Jennissen gave was to"move on to something else." Heide Miller, former Business Director will be aiding in the hiring process of the new replacement.

The Board approved and adressed changes at the Taylors Falls Elementary School building as part of the referendum projects. There is to be a new project underway involving renovations throughout the school, code updates, and two major additions. The first of the two being an addition on the north side for a new kindergarten classroom and the second being an addition of a new media center on the east side, adjacent to the newest portion of the school. The plan involves the implementation of a digital lab, a media productions room, a work room, a conference room, and a new community history room that is to be open to the public.
