Posted in Lanesboro Education

The Lanesboro School Board met on May 21, 2015 at 7 p.m. Board members Steve Snyder and Chris Troendle were not present.

The minutes from the April 16 board meeting and the April 23 board retreat were reviewed and approved.

Treasurer Lolly Melander gave the treasury report. The Lanesboro school district currently has a bank balance of $491,033.59.

The district bills and payroll were approved by the board.

The board approved the Health and Safety Policy. The policy has remained the same for several years, but must be renewed each year.

The Health and Safety Budget for 2016-2018 was reviewed and approved.

Superintendent Jeff Boggs noted that while all these safety measures are expensive, they are definitely necessary.

Chad Wangen was hired as the transportation director.

Boggs has met with the superintendents of the other schools participating in the Root River Day Treatment Program. As the rent for the facility is $5000 a year, and the program has not been used, they are considering dissolving the program. Boggs will have more information on this at a later date.

Board member Dave Lawstuen noted that all of the FFA members were very impressive at the convention.

The board congratulated Lanesboro student Travis Troendle with being elected to state office as treasurer.

The board approved a motion to continue sharing the art teacher position held by Abigail Potter with the Chatfield School District.

The meeting was opened for patron comments. John Pieper from the .....
