Lanesboro City School Board: Three staff resign from Lanesboro Schools


Fri, May 18th, 2007
Posted in Education

Heidi Knepper, Sue Schnaufer, and Phyllis Penheiter all submitted letters of resignation to the Lanesboro School Board at their May 17, 2007 meeting. Knepper, the daycare director for the past several years, resigned to take a position with Southeast Service Cooperative in Rochester assisting area schools with curriculum.

Phyllis Penheiter, an elementary teacher for thirty-seven years, decided to retire at the end of the school year. Sue Schnaufer, an elementary teacher for thirty-four years stated in her letter that she was quitting-not retiring. Retiring in Schnaufer's opinion sounded "too old."

Dave Ruen, speaking for the school board, responded that the board "accepted the resignations with great appreciation for their many years of service and the thousands of students forwarded on to the next grade."

Superintendent Jeff Boggs added, "A couple of great teachers-two of the best!"

20/20 Envisioning

Our Future

Boggs distributed the community initiative plan, which envisioned Lanesboro in the year 2020. Boggs told the board that city council member Joe O'Connor had asked him to hand out the plans. He pointed out to the board that one of the main focuses identified for Lanesboro to remain viable was the school. According to O'Connor, the school was considered five times as important as everything else put together. Boggs agreed, calling the school the hub of the community. Board members with questions regarding the plan were urged to call O'Connor.

Sports sharing

Boggs presented the current sharing of sports-cross-country, wrestling, baseball, softball and track are shared with Fillmore Central. Girls' golf has been shared with Mabel-Canton for the past two years. No girls from Mabel-Canton are currently on the golf team and Lanesboro has plenty golfers of its own so there will be no sharing next year for girls' golf.

Only one softball player goes to Fillmore Central, and baseball players from Lanesboro are few, but slightly over half the track team comes to Lanesboro from Fillmore Central. At this time the board has heard no questions or complaints on the sharing situation; the schools will continue to share the sports next year.

Other business

Other business conducted by the school board included:

• deciding board chairman John Rein would distribute the diplomas at the upcoming graduation;

• approving the purchase of the Langstaff house for $1 .....
