“As the parent of a former student, I want to thank you for your years of service,” Board Member Dave Lawstuen expressed his gratitude to outgoing Superintendent Jeff Boggs during theA Lanesboro School Board’s June 16 meeting. The rest of the board echoed his sentiments, and added that Boggs will be greatly missed by all the staff and students. The meeting was Boggs’ last one as superintendent before Matt Schultz takes over the job at the beginning of July.

Schultz attended the meeting as well to get a feel for how they usually go. The board welcomed him with open arms and are excited to work with him over the coming years.

The minutes of the May 19 meeting were reviewed and approved with no changes. Superintendent Boggs added several items to the current meeting’s agenda.

Dave Ruen and Steve Snyder reviewed the district bills prior to the meeting. The bills, payroll, financial statement, and treasurer’s report were approved by the board.

The State of Minnesota is now requiring all schools to change their Health & Safety budget to a Long Term Facilities Maintenance budget. It is also allowing the new budget to be levied, and the state will add more money to it as well as matching funds. Any funds not used in a fiscal year can be rolled over to the next year, another change in the regulations for the former Health & Safety budget. The state will continue to determine the district’s needs by the number of students enrolled in the free and reduced lunch program.

At the May 19 meeting, the board accepted a bid from Smith and Schafer Associates for a one year contract, as Pam Ristau will no longer be doing the annual audit for the district. Because of the change in auditors, the audit will now take place in August instead of November. Superintendent Boggs asked the board to approve the 2016 fiscal year budget as the initial budget for the fiscal year of 2017. The board passed the motion.

The board accepted a resignation from art teacher, Abby Potter, who will be working full-time in the Chatfield school district. Previously, the full-time position was shared by Chatfield and Lanesboro. In her resignation letter, Potter thanked the Lanesboro school for giving her a good start into the education system. The board discussed how to fill the open position and concluded that, with the art community being such a big part of Lanesboro, .....
