Lanesboro School Board - Post retires from post


Fri, Dec 22nd, 2006
Posted in Education

Math teacher Jerry Post resigned in a succinct letter to the Lanesboro School Board at their regular meeting December 21st. Post intends to retire as of January 19th. Knowing his plans, Superintendent Jeff Boggs advertised the position shortly after Thanksgiving. According to Boggs, there have been few applicants; he is hopeful, however, that newly graduated teachers will apply over the winter break.

Board member Eric Miehlisch stressed how critical it was to get the right person hired for the position, noting there was over half a school year remaining. Boggs agreed and informed the board Post was willing to stay until the school found a new teacher to take his place if necessary.

The board accepted Post's resignation with "great appreciation," calling Post a "great teacher through the years."

Basketball conference

schedule change

In an attempt to alleviate travel and reduce the number of games, the Southeast Conference of the Minnesota State High School League considered three different options for next school year's girls' and boys' basketball schedules. One option was to leave the schedule as is; another option was to play girls' and boys' varsity games the same night at the same site. The last option was to have the girls' and boys' from the same schools play at opposite sites the same night.

The Lanesboro staff wanted to leave the schedule as is; Spring Grove also wanted to keep status quo. Mabel-Canton wanted to go with playing at opposite sites the same night, but the remainder of the conference opted for playing the same night at the same site. This change will go into effect in the 2007-2008 school year and will only affect the cross-over games between the two halves of the conference, a total of eight games. For Lanesboro these would be the games with Glenville Emmons, Grand Meadow, LeRoy, and Lyle. "B" team games will not be played the same night.

Boggs felt there would be no cost savings from the change; rather the only savings might be "a night here or there." If "B" teams play at another time, bussing costs would stay the same; if they didn't play the games, the programs may suffer. The board discussed whether ticket prices would need to be increased since two varsity teams would be playing the same night. Steve Snyder volunteered to call his old high school to see how they handled a similar situation.
