Though school is out of session, the Kingsland School Board completed a list of agenda items at the June 16, 2014 meeting held in the Kingsland conference room. School Board members Troy Asher and Steve Tart were absent.

Consent Agenda items approved included Board Agenda, Minute Review of the May 19, 2014 meeting, June 2014 bills along with Policy Review and Policy Adoption.

Recognition was given for the following donations: Alco - $332.60 donation toward the electronic sign, School Management Services - $200 for staff appreciation luncheon and BP Katie Isenberg donation of $300 toward the Grade 5 Whitewater trip.

Finance/Facilities committee had no report. Curriculum/Personnel committee met on June 9, 2014 where they reviewed job descriptions and gave recommendations, discussed the Audiology Service Contract, reviewed the Sharing Agreement with Fillmore-Central for Micki Breitsprecher’s contract.

Policy/PR committee met on May 28, 2014. Discussions included policies, the Branding & Marketing committee, and handbooks. Principal Priebe attended the meeting discussing the potential change in the morning and afternoon bus drop-off and pick-up for the elementary students which would be moving the location by the cafeteria doors.
