Kingsland seniors plan trip to Florida


Mon, Nov 24th, 2014
Posted in Spring Valley Education



The Kingsland school board met on November 17, 2014. Superintendent McDonald and all board members were present. Following the Pledge of Allegiance, consent agenda items were considered, including Board agenda, previous minutes, November bills, and policy review. A motion to approve the consent agenda items carried. Thanks were given to the KSP parent group, vision and hearing volunteers, Veterans Day volunteers, middle school Knowledge Bowl students, and all dads who participated in the Watchdog program. The floor was opened for public comment, but none was made.

A group of senior class students and Niki DeBuhr made a presentation to the Board regarding the proposed senior class to Walt Disney World in May 2015. Ms. DeBuhr said the class considered going to Chicago or Wisconsin Dells, but ultimately chose a four-day trip to Disney World (Florida). The students described the various learning and experiential benefits of the trip, such as planning & budgeting, experiencing air travel, fundraising, seeing the ocean, and of course the fun and educational opportunities at the theme parks as well. The cost would be roughly $1100 per student, and students would be required to stay academically eligible and follow a code of conduct. Ms. DeBuhr also explained that if 65% of the seniors have not paid their nonrefundable $150 deposit by December 22, the class will instead take a three-day trip to Chicago, which would cost about $350 per student. Board members asked several questions, then voted to approve the trip.

Next, an update was given on the Spotlight on Education program. Students have been finding many benefits to the various technology used, including i-Pads and g-mail. Reports were then given by board members. Steve Tart reported on finances, mentioning several areas in need of maintenance, replacement or repair. Deb Larson reported on personnel issues, including the hiring of five coaches and one resignation. Kristin Beck updated the board on policy and PR items, including the electronic message sign, for which usage protocols are being developed.

Principal Hecimovich said the recent parent conferences were well-attended, and he told of several upcoming assessments for students. He summarized a recent training on suicide prevention, and said those who attended were very impressed. He also said, “I’m very proud of the behavior of our students, I would hold them up against any other school around. .....
