Lanesboro school receives feedback on arts program


Mon, Jun 1st, 2015
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. The budget includes water and air safety monitoring, elevator inspections, fire safety, lab safety, etc. The 2016 budget includes the removal of asbestos tile from four classrooms. After that project is completed, there will only be two more classrooms left from which to remove asbestos tile. 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.

A resolution was passed recognizing the FFA members for their accomplishments at the state convention. Kyle Lawstuen placed 5th in public speaking. Floriculture and Fish & Wildlife both took gold medals. Farm Business Management, Forestry, Best Informed Greenhand, Horse, and Crops all received silver medals. Poultry took home a bronze medal. 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 Horticulture class’s greenhouse sale was outstanding with a great turnout from the community.

A bid from Pam Ristau for the annual audit was considered and approved by the board.

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