Lanesboro increases substitute teacher pay


Mon, Jul 27th, 2015
Posted in Lanesboro Education



The Lanesboro School Board met on June 16, 2015 at 7 p.m. All board members were present.

The minutes from the June 18, 2015 board meeting were reviewed and approved with no changes.

Treasurer Lolly Melander gave the treasury report. The Lanesboro school district currently has a bank balance of $148,744.16.

The district bills and payroll were approved by the board.

The board compared last year’s milk bids from Ziebell’s Hiawatha Foods to this year’s bids. Overall, most of the prices remained relatively the same with a few going up or down by a small amount. The board accepted the bid and noted that they appreciate the way Ziebell’s continues to treat the Lanesboro School District fairly.

The breakfast and lunch prices for the 2015-2016 school year were reviewed. The school is required to increase the prices by $0.10 this year. Superintendent Jeff Boggs assessed prices at other local school districts and reported that Lanesboro’s prices are in line with everyone else’s.

The last pay increase for substitute teachers was in 2011. Superintendent Boggs recommended bumping the pay from $110 a day plus mileage to $115 a day plus mileage. He pointed out that quite a few of the teachers on the Lanesboro substitute list have mentioned that they really enjoy subbing at the school. A pay increase is an investment in both the teachers and the kids. The motion to increase the pay was approved.

A letter of resignation from para-professional Becky Stocker was received and read aloud by Superintendent Boggs. Stocker said that the past 8½ years working as a Para-professional for the Lanesboro school district have been an incredible blessing to her and her family. She enjoyed being able to be done with work at the same time her children finished school for the day. She requested that her name be added to the substitute teacher list for the upcoming school year.

The next board meeting will be held on August 20, 2015 at 7 p.m.
