The New Hampton School District wants to enhance its partnership with MercyOne Hospital in New Hampton for athletic training services.
Superintendent Jay Jurrens says the school board approved a plan to expand the district’s accessibility to the hospital’s athletic trainer.
In other action, the school board approved the hiring of David Leichtman as the Chickasaws’ new varsity girls basketball coach.
Jurrens says the board also approved amending the district’s 2021 fiscal year budget for increased costs incurred to sanitize school buildings throughout the school year because of the pandemic. Jurrens says the extra $200,000 will be covered through ESSER COVID relief funds.
