Meetings of the School Board


The board of education usually meets at 6:00 PM on the third Tuesday of each month in the board meeting room at Mabel-Canton High School. Special meetings may be called to conduct business which cannot be deferred until the next regular meeting.

For your convenience, a copy of the meeting agenda are available in the media center.

Formal action on an item cannot be taken unless a quorum is present. The chairperson of the board is entitled to vote on all issues.

Official action can only be taken in open session. However, with appropriate public notice, closed sessions may be held. A closed session can only be held for the following reasons listed in Minnesota law:

A. to consider strategy for labor negotiations, including negotiation strategies or developments of discussion and review of labor negotiation proposals;
B. to consider data that would identify alleged victims or reporters of criminal sexual conduct, domestic abuse, or maltreatment of minors or vulnerable adults;
C. to consider educational data, health data, medical data, welfare data, or mental health data that are not public data;
D. preliminary consideration of allegations or charges against an individual subject to its authority;
E. evaluation of the performance of an individual who is subject to its authority;
F. meetings expressly authorized by stature or permitted by the attorney-client privilege.
