March Board Meeting Highlights

Each month the North Cedar School Board shares two or three highlights of our monthly board meetings. These takeaways are messages that the board collectively feels are important for the public to know. Here are the highlights from the March 18, 2024  regular meeting:


  1. PPEL Special Election – We wanted to take a moment to extend our heartfelt thanks to everyone who participated in the recent Physical Plant and Equipment Levy Special Election. By exercising your right to vote, you have played an integral role in shaping the future of our district and ensuring that our physical infrastructure meets the needs of our students, faculty, and staff.
  2. Sharing Agreements – We have again entered into several sharing agreements with neighboring school districts to share teachers, directors and administration. We have maxed out with 21 positions being shared.  Existing agreements were extended for another year resulting in salary and benefit savings and state operational sharing incentives of over $155,800. These cost savings allow North Cedar to reduce expenses, yet maintain valuable programs for our students.
  3. SIAC Invitation – The School Improvement Advisory Committee (SIAC) invites individuals to join future meetings and contribute to enhancing educational practices. Participation in SIAC offers opportunities to collaborate with educators, administrators, and community members to identify areas for improvement within schools. Members engage in discussions, provide feedback, and offer insights on strategies to enhance student learning, school culture, and overall effectiveness. Joining SIAC allows stakeholders to play a vital role in shaping the future of education by fostering innovation and promoting continuous improvement within our school.
