Mental health in schools not a new issue in North Branch
Over the decades Minnesota public schools have evolved into providers of much more than just academics. Public health concerns have long been tackled partly in the school setting (remember those forearm puncture tests for TB?)  Vision and hearing tests are done in connection with attending school.  Education about transmittable disease takes place in classrooms.  Nutrition needs are evident in the on-going free meals debate and school food service standards.

School board addresses legal counsel, snow days, etc. in first meeting of the year
The first meeting of 2023 brought a lot of change for the Chisago Lakes School Board. The board needed to name a new chair after longtime Chair Mark Leigh gaveled his last meeting in December. Longtime Vice Chair Lori Berg was nominated by Brenda Carlson to ascend to the chairperson role. “Lori has shown leadership as vice chair for years. She always comes prepared and does a lot of research,” Carlson said in her nomination. “She knows the district and understands every aspect of the district. She has also been honored by the Minnesota School Board Association for her service.” New board member Cory Spencer seconded the nomination. There were no other nominations and Berg was named chair. “Thank you for trusting me with that big job,” she said.
