The School District 166 school board met on Thursday, July 25 in the Jane Mianowski conference room at the Arrowhead Center for the Arts. WTIP caught up with Superintendent Dr. Bill Crandall after the meeting to get his thoughts on actions at the meeting.

There were a number of personnel matters, ranging from the resignation of the Cook County Vikings football coach [:41] to the hiring of a special education intervention specialist [2:02] and an English as a Second Language instructor [3:16].

Dr. Crandall talks about the school district’s facilities maintenance plan, with the assurance that the strategies to be implemented will not impact the school levy [8:21].

Part of the school district’s facilities maintenance plan is care of the Arrowhead Center for the Arts and Crandall speaks about the new roof on the Arts Center. Crandall also noted that the lease agreement for use of the ACA by the Grand Marais Playhouse is still pending [11:19].

Finally, WTIP learns about a new vehicle [12:43] purchased by the school district for small group trips, such as to Knowledge Bowl or Robotics events.

WTIP’s Rhonda Silence learned about all of these things in this interview.
