Mulberry Grove Unit One Receives State Money

At the Tuesday Mulberry Grove Board of Education meeting, Superintendent Mike Gauch reported the district received the second categorical state aid transportation payment of $47,826. General state aid payments are still coming in on schedule and the district’s financial condition is good.

Elementary Principal Annette Hartlieb said through a grant from the smart board company and PTO funds, ten smart boards will be purchased for the elementary school. Almost all elementary classrooms will now have a smart board.

The board approved the issuance of $370,000 in working cash fund bonds. The bonds will be issued for a three-year term.

Superintendent Gauch said the Illinois Senate is considering two bills which may change the state aid formulas. If these bills are passed, more money might be available to downstate schools.

Following a closed session, the board hired Bruce Sasse to be a substitute bus driver and Maggie VonVokel summer school teacher. The board accepted Ryan Bauer’s resignation as Athletic Director effective next year.
