The District 84 Board of Education met on July 11 and approved the resignation of four employees, new hires, the fees and rates schedule, and a few other items.
The good news item was the successful Sleepy Eye Pride Pool Party which took place June 26.
It was reported by the board that the Brown County Health group met and discussed the ways the group is targeting specific ethnic groups to help them become more healthy.
Superintendent John Cselovszki reviewed some minor student handbook changes, and mentioned the summer school students raised a good amount of non-charitable food which they gave to the food shelf. Cselovszki also discussed the fees and rates schedule. Finally, the board discussed the fee changes for the Sleepy Eye hockey and soccer teams, as well as planning a new way for senior citizens to get into sporting events.
