Discussion:  On behalf of the ISD 129 School Board, I would like to acknowledge and thank two businesses in town for their support of school district students.

1) Minnwest Bank hosted a community grill out to benefit the district Angel Fund.  This fund is a set aside to be used to aid students in areas that are providing barriers to their success in school.

2) Old National Bank organized a "Tools for Schools" drive that provided K-12 students with school supplies.

Both of these are examples of the generosity of our community and the priority they have made the students of our district!  Thank you to both.
2.1. Review the Preliminary 21 Pay 22 Levy Certification

Prior to September 30th, the board must certify the preliminary levy 2021 Payable 2022.  The MDE releases final preliminary certification figures on September 10, therefore, Chief School Business Official, Adam Spray, will be able to review the levy information with the board at the school board meeting.   For preliminary certification, it is recommended that we certify the maximum in order to allow for October 1 MARRS data to be inputted into the state system, which will create allocation adjustments.  The board will discuss the final 2021 Payable 2022 levy numbers and the budget at the annual truth in taxation hearing, prior to final certification, held during the regularly scheduled board meeting on Monday, December 13, 2021 at 6 p.m.
