BEMIDJI — The Bemidji Area Schools Board of Education will meet at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 19, in the district office board room for their first regular meeting of the 2022-2023 school year.

The board is set to establish PMA Financial Network as a designated depository of district funds, adding to its list of official depositories that are approved annually.

“The purpose of this resolution is to … enable the district to hold excess funds and make legally approved short-term investments through PMA Financial Network,” District Business Director Krisi Fenner wrote in a letter to the board.

The board also approves an Enabling Act every January that establishes guidance for daily operations of the school district and allows Fenner to make short-term investments of surplus funds in legally approved securities, the letter explains.

Kim Goodwin will also be recognized as the principal of the elementary and alternative program at Solway Elementary, the Alternative Education Center and Lumberjack High School having assumed the role on Aug. 16.
