Ogilvie Public Schools to continue four-day school week, and more news


Ogilvie Public Schools has been approved to continue its four-day school week structure.


According to superintendent Kathy Belsheim, the Minnesota Department of Education approved the schedule for the next two school years.


"The four-day school week, it works," Belsheim said. "It works for our families, it works for our staffing, and for the kids. So we're very, very pleased the state has approved the next two years under that structure."


Belsheim said the state wants to ensure that academic progress is being met to keep in compliance.


The Ogilvie School Board voted to reapply for the four-day school week earlier this spring.

Kanabec County Extension/4-H Office to move


The Kanabec County Board of Commissioners approved a plan to move the county extension and 4-H office during a meeting earlier this month.


The office is currently located in the Public Services building, but the commissioners have looked for a more public-facing spot. The alternative is the former EDA office on the first floor of the county courthouse.


According to 4-H Coordinator Nicole Priebe, the plan is to move into that space during the fall or early winter, due to a busy schedule of summer activities.


The commissioners’ long-term plan for the office is to move it to where Veterans Services is located after that department moves to the new memorial building.
