Summary Highlights: 

Q-Comp, the process where teachers are rewarded for their accomplishments, became a reality for St. Louis County, ISD 2142 Schools after the regular board meeting Monday at 5 p.m. in the District Office in Virginia.Evaluation is a big part of this program. So far, only the International Falls and Proctor school districts in northeastern Minnesota use this program. It appears to be the wave of the future.

Study session coming up on Babbitt-Embarrass and Tower-Soudan remodels, Nov. 30, 2010 at 3:15 p.m.

Construction Manager John Henry gave his regular report on the new construction. Everything is under control, with walls going up for the new South School.

A long discussion came up next when it came to naming the Cherry School. The residents and students had voted 452 to 26 to keep it the Cherry Tigers. Apparently, the new South School has been voting on names and the name South Panthers was the big winner. There was talk of the new Babbitt-Embarrass-Tower-Soudan School changing their name to the Golden Knights. Finally, the vote was called for and the name change failed 4-2, so they will remain the Cherry Tigers.
