The Inver Grove Heights School Board met on Monday, December 9, with the following items on the agenda:

Consent agenda

  • Minutes from previous school board meeting
  • Cash disbursements
  • Personnel transactions and donations
  • Gifts and grants

Information items

  • ISD 199 Director of Business Services Heather Aune presented the annual Truth in Taxation information to the school board. Mrs. Aune reported a decrease of 3.88% for residents on the school district portion of their 2019 payable 2020 property taxes. With meticulous planning and financial management, the district has been able to decrease property taxes for four of the last five years. The brief rise came after the 2017 referendum when the community generously approved an operating levy increase and a capital projects levy. While the referendum funds are constantly helping maintain and expand learning opportunities for students, the district is working hard to find any opportunities to reduce the financial impact on residents each year.
  • Board committee reports
  • Membership reports

Action items

  • Approval of the FY19 Audit
  • Approval of the Certification of 2019 Payable 2020 Property Tax Levy
  • Approval of the Resolution Removing Voya International Trust Company and Appointing Matrix Trust Company
  • Approval of the Second Reading of Policies
  • Approval of the 2019-2020 Superintendent Goals
