For the calendar year 2021, the Cambridge-Isanti School Board members’ compensation will remain the same as it has for the past 12 years.
During the board’s reorganizational meeting held Jan. 4, it approved a motion to adopt the school board compensation policy as presented, a policy that was adopted in January 2009.
According to the policy, board members will receive $250 per month for regular and special school board meetings and study sessions. The $250 also includes all non-pen-and-paper meetings that may or may not be board-related where board members are asked to represent or attend. This includes, but is not limited to, any school building Adopt-A-School visits, student and staff recognition and award programs, school open houses and back-to-school workshops.
Board members will also receive $65 for participating in all standing, ad hoc and representative committees under four hours, and $130 for committee meetings over four hours.
Board members will receive this same compensation for attending any Minnesota or national school board association sponsored meetings or other board-related pen-and-paper meetings.
Board members will receive this same compensation for attending any board-related educational meetings, seminars, and conventions approved by the board chair.
The chair, clerk and treasurer will receive an additional stipend per month as follows: chair, $100; clerk, $60; and treasurer, $60.
