Kingsland discusses iPads


Mon, May 28th, 2012
Posted in All Education

The Kingsland School Board had a full agenda on May 21, 2012. Superintendent John McDonald and all school board members were present. The meeting was called to order by Chairperson Doug Plaehn. Consent agenda items were approved. A discussion was held on policy review. Deb Larson explained the consensus on Policy 533.5 would be better off being put in the Handbook under Guidelines and Procedures, so the Administration would be able to adjust the policy as necessary. Motion carried. A June first meeting will be held for the first reading of the Handbook and a second and final reading will be held July second.

Doug Plaehn had a thank you for Kelly Opsett for sending in an application and subsequently receiving 400 books for the school. A second thank you was given to Kwik Trip for donating

bananas, eggs, etc. for the Whitewater experience, and also to parent volunteers who attended the trip with the Seniors.

A special recognition was given to Kathy Moeller. Mrs. Moeller has taught first grade at Kingsland for the past 28 years. Superintendent McDonald presented Mrs. Moeller with a recognition award and wished her well. He stated that “there is no more noble service than teaching.” Mrs. Moeller said she appreciated her years at Kingsland.

Student Council reported they are working on filling positions for the 2012-2013 school year. FFA reported about the State Convention. Student teams competed and had a banquet. Officers for the school year have been installed.

School board committees reported. Peggy Merkel stated that work is ongoing to get the courtyard fully usable for the children. Audit was discussed and the same firm of Cliffton, Larson, and Allen will be used again this year, with a slight increase in their fee.

Apple iPads were discussed and the cost of the lease is slightly lower than anticipated. Summer weight training will occur. Steve Tart stated that the Curriculum/Personnel committee met on May 14. There are a coaching and a teaching position open. They looked at administrative structure. Is class size adequate for teachers? Met with Mr. Horn at Mayo about programs. 280 iPads were delivered last week.

Policy and PR committee reviewed policies in two separate meetings. The sports season is winding down. Sub-section baseball, track and softball are ongoing. Seniors left May 21 for Whitewater experience and will return on May 22.
