A key point that arose often in the presentation was the importance of getting students on the right path during their freshman year, and how that helps them through their entire high school career. The MVTHS Freshman Academy has been successful in that regard, said Principal Wes Olson.
“The freshman year is a real crucial piece for us.” Olson said.
Other MVTHS Board actions Monday included:
n Adoption of the 2014 Area Vocational Center budget.
n Approval of the tentative 2014 MVTHS budget, pending final approval of the Finance Committee. A public hearing has been set for the budget for 6:30 p.m. Sept. 23.
n Approval of a temporary loan transfer from the working cash fund to the TORT fund.
