Barnum School sets maximum preliminary levy


September 26, 2019

The Barnum School Board set the 2019, payable 2020, preliminary levy at the maximum at the monthly meeting of the board on Tuesday, Sept. 17.

The board will discuss the levy and budget at the Dec. 3 working board meeting, it was said. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m.

Superintendent Mike McNulty reported that there was discussion about a grant available to the member schools of NASC (Northeast Area School Consortium) at the organization’s last meeting. The grant is for the schools to offer vocational programs.

“They tell us that we are going to pretty much get it,” he said. “The nine member schools would help each other. It would take six months of planning. There are a lot of components to it.”

More information will be coming.

McNulty also spoke about student teacher agreements that are being set up. The students will attend the next NASC meeting on Oct. 4, he said.

McNulty also reported that the number of students at the Barnum schools has increased by 15 students overall. There are 369 in K - 6 grades, and 350 in grades 7 - 12 as of Sept. 13.

Previously, former Superintendent Dave Bottem had reported that there were 40 less students in the school that there had been in past years.

The next working meeting of the board was set for Tuesday, Oct. 1, at 6:30 p.m.
